1.) Tampa Bay - Steven Stamkos

It's a given that the lightning will be taking him.

2.) LA - Nikita Filatov

I can't see LA passing on a guy with his potential even with the Big 3, even 4 or 5 D-men that are available.

3.) Atlanta - Drew Doughty

Personally I think Bogosian is the best D-man in the draft, but Doughty is also extremely good and seems to be a bit bigger of a name.

4.) St. Louis - Zach Bogosian

St. Louis gets the exact guy they need on the back end. Very gritty but still has offensive abilities.

5.) NYI - Alex Pietrangelo

I also consider Alex better than Drew but due to missing the physical tests at the combine because of his health status that took him out of OHL playoffs, he might drop a bit. The Isles are forward heavy on the prospect front so they really need young D.

6.) Columbus - Tyler Myers

A bit of a surprise even for me to pick, but Columbus also needs D and I think they take the risk on the big man and hope he turns into a Chara type d-man.

7.) Toronto - Cody Hodgson

The leafs really need to start thinking about a new front line center. With Sundin aging, and possibly not returning and Wellwood not living up to expectations of leaf fans Hodgson could usher in the new era of a young leafs team.

8.) Phoenix - Colin Wilson

The Yotes may just take the best available player in Mikkel Boedker, put in my opinion they should grab another young center.

9.)Nashville - Mikkel Boedker

Nashville jumps all over Boedker at this pick.

10.) Vancouver - Kyle Beach

Vancouver selects Beach here. A decent size center with some skills.

11.) Chicago - Luke Schenn

Chicago would have loved getting Myers but will also be happy grabbing Schenn

12.) Anaheim - Zac Boychuk

Ducks take the best available player

13.) Buffalo - Luca Sbisa

With the loss of Campbell buffalo will look to grab an offensive minded d-man

14.) Carolina - Kirill Petrov

If Carolina does not take the best available they will take something they need which is a solid winger, and Petrov fits the bill.

15.) Nashville - Colten Teubert

Nashville takes another solid center.

16.) Boston - Michael DelZotto

Boston takes the best available player, who also fills a need for a good young D-man.

17.) Calgary - Mattias Tedenby

Calgary takes a good young forward.

18.) Ottawa - Thomas McCollum

Ottawa could use a new goalie in the system until they can figure out their goalie situation.

19.) Columbus - Colby Robak

With their second pick Columbus grabs Robak.

20.) NYR - Josh Bailey

Rangers take a Center at this spot as they are somewhat thing at C when it comes to prospects.

21.) NJ - Zac Dalpe

NJ should look to restock the center spot, and Dalpe will help there.

22.) Edmonton - Joe Colborne

Edmonton could use some youth at the wing so Colbourne works well for them.

23.) Washington - John Carlson

Washington does not have any glaring needs at prospects so they take the best available player.

24.) Minnesota - Greg Nemisz

Greg adds some physical play up front and could blossom into a solid NHL center.

25.) Montreal - Nicolas Deschamps

Habs grab small but skilled center.

26.) Buffalo - Jamie Arniel

27.) Philly - Chet Parker

Philly would benefit from a good young goalie prospect.

28.) LA - Jake Gardiner

They passed on D with their first pick so this pick is used to add a solid d-man.

29.) Atlanta - Viktor Tikhonov

Atlanta needs to add some scoring wingers and tikhonov will help.

30.) Detroit - Tyler Cuma

Detroit grabs a defensive prospect.

This is just my opinion on how things might go down or how I think teams should draft.

Not for nothing, but Teubert is a Dman, and I'd kind of like to see Buffalo select him.

You may very well be right but i see Cuma going higher and Luke Scheen going higher as well..

This may just be wishful thinking...But I would love to see the Wild go off the board with their first pick and get Aaron Ness. I got a chance to watch a lot of him during the days leading up to the High School tournament and during the tournament itself...He's a really special player and whoever gets him is going to be getting a great defenseman, even though he's undersized.

i hope philly does get chet.. we need a goalie prospect

If Montreal drafts another small, skilled center, I'd laugh.

whos Chet PARKER?, I think its Pickard
June 14, 2008 10:43 AM ET | Delete
Living in Guelph, I've seen Dougherty play more than a few times and I've gotta say that he's better than both Bogosian and Pietrangelo... he shows the projectable frame that one looks for in defencemen and looks like he could just be an all around champ really soon...

I also heard Dougherty is an up and coming defenseman that is more skilled then Bogosian, Pietrangelo and Doughty.

ottawa wont draft another goalie as they already have 2 good prospects in the system. they'll be going for a puck moving defencemen to take over for redden.

also, because its so hard to project how good a goalie will be, goalies RARELY go in the first round unless its obvious that they will become a top level NHL goalie, ie Luongo, Dipietro, Fleury

Toronto should pick Boedker. He's going to be a star.
June 14, 2008 9:04 PM ET | Delete
No more small centers.

I'd honestly be surprised if Schenn dropped like that. See him closer to being taken at 6 by Columbus. But some interesting choices made for this draft.Think Hodgson is a solid choice and very possible for the Leafs. Boedker and Wilson are both good enough to be chosen at the 7 spot. If Schenn somehow is there at the Leafs pick I'd expect them to go for him.

If Isles select Alex Pietrangelo, I think the fans will string up Snow. Hes not highly touted by Islander fans. If Drew Doughty and Zack Bogosian are gone they will pick Schenn if they want a D man.

There's no way Arniel goes in the first round. End of 2nd maybe!
