Supernick's 2007 Mock draft

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
Every year i make a mock draft based on CSS, ISS rankings and on what i read in the Hockey's Future forum. Here's my mock draft, the ranks 1 to 26 are ok and i based the ranks 27 to 30 on my playoffs predictions (i think Anaheim will win the cup so Edmonton will draft 30th with Anaheim's pick). A chaque année je fais un mock draft en me basant sur les classements de la...

Eggshmeg's 2007 Draft Preview

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
Here is my quick breakdown of what I expect each team to do this year at the draft. I will show you what each team's weakness is and later I will post who I think each team will draft based on these facts, in the first two rounds. A mock draft if you will. Here is my breakdown: [b]Anaheim[/b] - May need defensive help, but Brian Burke has a knack to make a good trade...
Okay, so with the NHL Entry Draft not too far off in the distance, I think it's time to educate some folks in what is the proper method of conducting a draft. DO: Address your needs first. Get what you know you're going to need. If you're Bob Gainey, you don't want to draft a goalie and a wing with your two first rounders. Draft a center and maybe a blue liner like, say...
I wrote earlier in my first blog about how the ratings etc. are not always what they appear, especially considering the total lack of any traditional/large US markets in the Stanley Cup Finals over the past four years compared to the other three major team sports. I also mentioned, however, that certain things are just getting messed up by the NHL. Hence my surprise las...
Tout le monde le sait, le repêchage de la LNH commence demain à Columbus, la première ronde sera télédiffusée à RDS à 7hres. voici le profil de quelques joueurs québécois qui pourraient être intéressants pour les canadiens: Angelo Esposito Esposito est un centre qui lance de la gauche. il patine très bien et il est très talentueux, mais il n'est pas ...
Some of you may have followed my predictions for the first two rounds of this year's NHL entry draft. Here are the results of my predictions comparing them to where they actually ended up. They are ordered in how I picked them, the number on the right is where they actually ended up, and the third number is how far off I was: 1. P. Kane - 1 = 0 2. K. Turri...

Ice Hockey In The UK

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
Let me introduce myself. I'm Stuart, aged 27 and currently living in Coventry, England. I've been following hockey over here for about nine or ten years now, since going to university and having a team in the city. Started following the Coventry Blaze when I moved here a few years back, and have been a season ticket holder since the inception of the Elite League in 2003. ...
Let's set the scene. Coventry Blaze are the most successful club in UK ice hockey since the start of the EIHL in 2003. They are the reigning League Champions [url=http://my.hockeybuzz.com/blog.php?user_id=37614&post_id=3760](Read here for why it's so important to win the League!)[/url] and also hold the Challenge Cup. They have won the League twice, the Challenge Cup ...
Ugh. That really wasn't worth £13 of my money, and more importantly, 3 hours of my time. But it is hockey, so I can't really complain too much. And Coventry won, which is always pleasing. [b]Coventry Blaze 2 - 1 Sheffield Steelers - British Knockout Cup 1/4 final 1st Leg[/b] Pretty much uneventful, although it started with a bang with Sheffield's Randy Dagenais clea...
[i][b]Thoughts on the Flyers, the NHL, and ice hockey on the planet Earth[/b][/i] Author's note: I've been wanting to start a blog here for quite some time so I'm going to take a shot. The Flyers will be my main focus, but I'm interested in the game itself and all things hockey, so I hope anyone who is a hockey fan will find something of interest within these pages. ...
The June 26th NHL Entry Draft is not far away and now that the Stanley Cup Finals have come to an end, the hockey world now shifts its focus to the draft. Here are my predictions for who will go in the top 15. [b]15. Anaheim Ducks – RW Scott Glennie (Brandon-WHL). [/b]Glennie has made amazing strides in the last year or so. He is definitely a bonafide goal scorer but...

Brayden Schenn Will Be A Leaf

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
Look for this years NHL Entry Draft to be a mirror reflection of last years draft (from a leafs perspective). When we all consider the possible moves that Brian Burke can make, one seems to make the most sense. He claims he does not want to give up too much, but we all know the steep price that comes with getting into the top 3. However, another significant jump from 7th t...

Stating Precedents

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
Celebrating a decade of squandered potential and faded dreams, the draft of 1999 turned out shallower than an infant’s paddling pool, yet despite being regarded as an acrimonious footnote in league history the draft of ’99 also served as an unlikely backdrop to one of the most meticulously engineered pre-draft coups ever. Having only entered the Vancouver office si...
It is my belief that the Leafs will not be trading up in this draft. The teams in front of them are just too desperate to get a highly touted prospect... The Islanders will go for the option of selling tickets before looking for the future of the franchise, and Tavares will probably go first... Even though to me, it looks like Duchene and Hedman look like they will develop...
I have to start by saying that the 2009 Draft was the first one where I actually did some research beyond the top five prospects. I went full on, putting together a list of the players that I liked in the order I liked them, as if I was prepared to walk out to the draft table myself. The reason for this, aside from the fact that its summer and I find myself with quite a bi...
So as an Oilers fan the one thing we have to look forward to is the upcoming draft, so I figure I would give my predictions. Let me know if you agree or what you would change. I am only going to do the top 10 based on the current bottom 10 teams. 1)EDM: Adam Larsson - huge need for an all around defensive force with huge upside 2)OTT: Gabriel Landeskog - power fo...
As the 2011 NHL Draft nears, hockey fans salivate at the thought of tomorrow’s stars donning their team’s jersey. Obviously, the big names are out there for everyone, even the casual hockey fan, to see. Ryan Nugent Hopkins, Gabriel Landeskog, Adam Larsson, the names that have been talked about from day one of this season. There are guys such as Jonathan ...
The Stanley Cup finals are upon us but I don't really care about it. Whether the Los Angeles Kings or the New Jersey Devils win, I could care less. I'm more interested in what's going to happen at the draft. Not too long ago a rumor surfaced that the Edmonton Oilers were entertaining the idea of trading the 1st overall pick to Columbus in a package deal including the 2n...
With the NHL Draft getting closer I thought I would try and write about some of the top prospects out there and American defenseman Jacob Trouba is the first one I thought I would talk about. A gem in the USA hockey system this 6-2, 195 blueliner is destined to play in the NHL someday but it will take some time. He will attend Michigan University this Fall and he will n...
After a rather uneventful evening at the Tampa Bay Lightning draft table, the organization has come to acquire two very talented youngsters. Of course, the selections which took place at 10th overall and 19th overall were met with some controversy but as a whole, fans should be very happy with what transpired today! Get my thoughts on what happened with the Lightning ove...

My All-Prospect team

Posted Sunday | Comments 0
Alright, 2nd blog today, but this a fun one. I will be doing my all-prospect team today. These prospects can only have a MAX of 1 year under their belt. They must also play their respective position. I will be doing 12 FW, 6 D and 2 G. Yakupov-RNH-Landeskog Schenn-Galchenyuk-Kreider Johansen-Couts-Forsberg Granlund-Hodgson-Connolly Larsson-Gardiner Gudbranson-Ha...
Follow me on twitter: @flamesfan1981 For the past two decades the Calgary Flames franchise has attempted to fill their to center positions with low cost or washed up bandaid solutions that simply weren't the answer. To put this into better perspective, the Flames top 2 scoring Centerman since the 1996 season have been Robert Reichel (354 points in 425 games) and Craig ...
Follow me on Twitter @flamesfan1981 and please note I will be Tweeting LIVE FROM THE PRUDENTIAL CENTER at the 2013 NHL Entry Draft! Thanks to the Flames partial fire-sale during the season, they are in a unique position of owning three 1st round draft picks in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft taking place in New Jersey. The draft is deemed by many scouts and hockey experts to ...

2013 NHL Mock Draft

Posted Monday | Comments 0
With the NHL entry draft just around the corner and with all the controversy sorrounding it this year, I thought I should put in my two cents. With this being a deep draft year it will be interesting to see how it stacks up to the rest. So with no further ado, ladies and gentlemen, this is the Oilersrule66 2013 NHL mock draft. ____________________________________________...
Follow me on Twitter @flamesfan1981 There have been plenty of 1st round mock drafts in which we all have ideas on what player will be drafted in what range. In this blog I am going to break down all of the Flames picks, from rounds 1 through 7 and determine who should be drafted at that position based on the Flames strategy of "best player available". Here are the...

Leafs Off Season Thoughts

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
This off season figures to be an exciting one for Leaf fans. With one significant trade already completed (Bernier) and an exciting draft and free agency ahead of us, there should be plenty to talk about in the weeks ahead. First, I want to look at the goaltenders. This appears to be set already, as Bernier and Reimer give us a good 1-2 punch where both have solids sta...
The 2013 NHL Draft on Saturday was eventful to say the least. From surprise picks to trades, we experienced everything. Last week, Matt Lee and I laid out our predictions. First, we’ll show you how we each fared in predicting the Top 10 selections in the draft. Second, we will break down EVERY pick of the 1st round. Third and last, we will tell you who we thought were wi...
Follow me on Twitter: @flamesfan1981 The 2013 NHL Entry Draft was probably the single most important draft in the history of the Calgary Flames franchise. Flames brask has made it clear they intend to rebuild the team properly and made the promise to fans they would draft the 'Best Player Available' in order to fulfill the needs of the organization. Did Jay Feaster an...
First of all, i want to introduce myself, that you have a feeling who is going to write :D My name is Tom, 30 years and a native of Bavaria, Germany so please be not so hard on me if there are gramatical mistakes. There were irritating rumors that the Oil own 5 of the first 63 picks, but our own 3rd round pick was traded and we have the 79th and 86th pick instead from ...
I have no basis on these trades other than what I think should happen. I also believe it would make a very fun draft day. I will explain the bigger trades, some just don't really need explaining. Trade 1 Edmonton receives 3rd overall pick (Hanifin) 29th/30th pick (Chicago) 63rd overall pick (Arizona) Arizona receives Leon Draisaitl 16th overall pick (Pitts...
1. Edmonton Oilers: Connor McDavid, C. Not much to say here. The Oilers will pick the generational talent from the Erie Otters. 2. Buffalo Sabres: Jack Eichel, C. Barring a cognitive meltdown, it’s safe to say Sabres’ GM Tim Murray will be calling Mr. Eichel’s name with the No. 2 pick. Hard to be upset about missing out on McDavid when this guy is your consolatio...
Posted this in the Leafs thread a few days ago. Edmonton: Connor McDavid. Yadda.. Yadda.. Buffalo: Jack Eichel. Yadda. Arizona: Dylan Strome. Contending in that division will be difficult without a horse at centre to hitch your wagon to. Could end up being the best player available. Toronto: Mitch Marner. Skill is important. Apparently. Carolina: Noah Hani...
The Boston Bruins have seen a noticeable slump since their Stanley Cup victory back in 2010-11. Prior to that, they made a number of trades, picks and acquisitions. But what could they have done differently? Despite their roster, most of the picks in the last 15 years have yet to wear a Bruins jersey, or even an NHL jersey for that matter. Surprisingly, Boston has ha...
As a Canucks fan I've been looking forward to this years entry draft a fair amount and keep thinking how much better off the Canucks would be if Jared McCann and Jake Virtanen could be learning in the Ahl but alas they played junior hockey in the Chl and aren't allowed to make that jump yet. So they are stuck playing 8-10 min a night in the NHL because they aren't quite re...
The Blue Jackets will be looking forward to a long offseason, but for the upper management, it will be only the start of their work. Columbus has five draft picks in this year's draft- their first, second, third, sixth, and seventh. Their fourth round pick is in Chicago courtesy of the Brandon Saad blockbuster; their fifth is in St. Louis from the Jordan Leopold trade. ...
First off let me make one thing clear – Mitchell Marner is amazing! Marner Magic is real folks and he will be a superstar in the NHL. Let us take that to the bank today and profit from the dividends for the next 15 years. People say “Oh he’s way too fancy he’ll get killed in the NHL.” To those people I say please watch the games. Watch the OHL final and ...
Looking around at summer ideas for blogging, Peter Tessier's idea of reviewing the history of top draft picks is one that got. Besides being a hockey fan, history is something I enjoy almost as much. Since the Columbus Blue Jackets draft third in the 2016 NHL Draft, I will be looking back in the past to see who was draft in this spot in previous drafts. Today, it w...
This is blog number 2. I got a few good comments so I decided to write again. Like before I welcome your comments and feedback. When the leafs won the NHL draft lottery I went crazy, so crazy that I accidentally woke up my roommate. ( Whoops ) But really, what guy in his early 20s is asleep at like 8pm on a Saturday. This draft has the ability to give the leafs the...
Jared Crozier, the Ottawa Senators of Hockeybuzz, started the idea of coming up with ideas of looking at who the Senators could target in the upcoming draft. Now, it's my turn to do so with the Columbus Blue Jackets. It's already a forgone conclusion that Auston Matthews and Patrik Laine are the top two draft picks. Columbus at the third pick has options on the table...
With plenty of options on the board for Columbus, they have the room to do what they want. One guy that has been on the ride is center Logan Brown, an underrated guy that could become a number one center. At 6' 4" and coming out of the Ontario Hockey League, he has a chance to be a successful guy. However, the Jackets seem to be high on him according to sev...

CBJ- Finn Avoids Finns

Posted Saturday | Comments 0
With Auston Matthews and Patrik Laine going one and two respectively, Columbus had the rest of the deck to draft whoever they wanted. The best player available according to many was Jesse Puljujarvi. Jarmo Kekalainen went with his list, which was a major off the grid move to acquire a center. On his 18th birthday, a life changing move happened to Pierre-Luc Dubois by b...

CBJ- Draft Review

The 2016 NHL Draft was filled with interest and intrigue. In my review, I will provide who was selected by Columbus, and will let you, the reader, learn a little more about them. I will also be reviewing the whole draft as well, and letting you guys in on who I think were winners and losers of the draft. Listed Players Selected #3- C Pierre-Luc Dubois (Cape Breton...
