Here is my prediction of the first round basing it on each team's needs as pointed out in my previous blog. I believe this is the most accurate way you can do a mock draft, and I hope you people enjoy this. Here we go:

1. Chicago - Patrick Kane - RW
2. Philadelphia - Kyle Turris - C
3. Phoenix - Alexei Cherepanov - RW
4. Los Angeles - Sam Gagner - C
5. Washington - Karl Alzner - D
6. Edmonton - James Van Riemsdyk - LW
7. Columbus - Jakub Voracek - RW
8. Boston - Angelo Esposito - C
9. St. Louis - Ryan McDonagh - D
10. Florida - Keaton Ellerby - D
11. Carolina - Zach Hamill - C
12. Montreal - Kevin Veilleux - C
13. Toronto - Logan Couture - C
14. Colorado - Nick Petrecki - D
15. Edmonton - Lars Eller - LW
16. Anaheim - Max Pacioretty - LW
17. New York R - Maxim Mayorov - LW
18. Calgary - Dana Tyrell - C
19. Minnesota - Colton Gilles - C
20. Pittsburgh - Mike Hoeffel - LW
21. Phoenix - Joakim Andersson - C
22. Montreal - Maxim Goncharov - D
23. Philadelphia - Jonathon Blum - D
24. St. Louis - David Perron - RW
25. Vancouver - Brandon Sutter - C
26. St. Louis - Kevin Shattenkirk - D
27. Detroit - Colby Cohen - D
28. Washington - Oscar Moller - RW
29. Ottawa - Mikael Backlund - C
30. Edmonton - Tommy Cross - D

I will post the result of round 2 tomorrow!

Good stuff, except you have Zach Hamill there twice. I would love it if the Leafs got Logan Couture.

Whoops, I think that Edmonton pick was supposed to be Lars Eller, I have no idea why I put Hamill. I'll fix it now.

The Blues will not be taking two defensemen with 3 of our 1st rounders. Maybe one defense but definitely not two.

Good blog, your picks are well thought out and make sense, although its quite well known that the flames will take sutter if hes still available

Barring a trade, I like who you have my Flyers picking. Good work, Dude.

I would be thrilled if Van Riemsdyk and Voracek fell to the Oil but I think both will be gone. I haven't seen Gagner that high on a mock draft before. Why do you think he will go to LA?

Actually it was Eller who went to edmonton, not Voracek. A lot of the scouts have been raving about Gagner and how he played at the WJC, I wouldn't be surprised to see a team take him early like this.

Do you think Backlund falls that far? That would be a wet dream for Ottawa.

Stranger things have happened. That's just how I see it playing out.
