We at Hockey Wilderness are going through the entire first round, letting the community vote on the draft choice for each team. Well, today the Avs are on the clock. We would love it if the members of MHH came over and helped us make the pick!
The first pick overall is tricky, blow that, and as a GM, your career is likely over. No one wants to draft Alexadre Daigle when they could have had Sidney Crosby. The Hockey Wilderness community, along with some help from the community at The Copper & Blue chose to take the safe choice. With the first overall pick in the Hockey Wilderness Community 2011 NHL Mock Draft, they chose: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.
Congrats, and all that.
Now we move on to the next trickiest position to draft in. Every year there is a false contest about which player will be the first overall selection. More often than not, there is a 1A and 1B. This year, not many people believe that, although there was some clamoring from the Oiler fans for Adam Larsson.
