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.
