Mock Draft Time.

It's that time of year, the time of the mock draft.  Personally, I love these things.  I love reading the thoughts of other hockey fans/experts and comparing it to my own.  In a couple of weeks, the final "mockies" will be coming out and I plan on recapping them for you as well.  Sooooo.... enjoy the mini recap that you will find after the jump.

Jump.

First, I need to start off by assuming that we end up with the 2nd overall pick.  I know the "draft lottery" makes it possible to move up or down,  but the odds are that we are who where we think we are.  Second, I am also assuming that we are using the "Best Player Available" method of choosing our 4'7" puck moving defensemen first, 1st round selection.  Third, I am also also assuming that the Oilers are using the "Best Player Available" method (bastards better not take our Rocco Grimaldi).  Fourth-ly-est, the wings suck.  Fifth-ly-est-er, with no one nicknamed "the Undertaker," this draft is wide open...

And a very cool website that tracks all of these Mockies and turns them into a fancy spreadsheet...

Did this help any?  No.  Are you dumber for reading this?  Maybe.  But reading this fanshot is better then getting shot in the nuts....
