Fantastic, 2 games, 2 wins, 2 injuries. Luongo stands on his head and it looks like we are able to shut down Malkin and Zetterberg after all. Kadri will get the call up...Hopefully it won't affect the Marlies too much.

2014 CDCSL Mock Draft (#1-10)

1. Columbus Blue Jackets

With 4 first round picks in the draft, the Jackets can’t go wrong with taking arguably the best prospect in the draft in Sam Reinhart, a dynamic centre who has dominated the WHL even as a 16-year old. Reinhart is projected to be a franchise 2-way forward with excellent on-ice creativity and offensive skill.

2. Dallas Stars

The Stars fell from being the President’s Trophy winner a year ago to nearly dead last in the NHL, no thanks to the loss of Jamie Benn. One way to revive the organization is to draft a player that could be just as skilled – the #1 pick in 2012 CHL Import Draft, Ivan Barbashev. In only Barbashev’s second season in the CHL, the skilled Russian leads all draft-eligible players in points with 135, showcasing his tremendous shot and elite skating ability.

3. Buffalo Sabres

The Sabres are still searching for answers even after acquiring Jamie Benn from the Stars. Other than Myers and Ceci, the Sabres lack high-end defenseman in the prospect pool, so it would make sense for them take the towering 6’5” defenceman Aaron Ekblad. The addition of this ‘exceptional’ blueliner would allow Buffalo to follow in the footsteps of the Nashville Predators (NHL) with their own Weber-Suter pairing in Myers and Ekblad. Ekblad is physically mature to step into the NHL right away.

4. New Jersey Devils

The Devils defence core not getting any younger, so drafting the gifted offensive defenceman Roland McKeown is almost a natural fit. McKeown leads all draft-eligible defenceman with 29 goals and many scouts have complimented the young blueliner on his professionalism and veteran approach to the game. Wearing a letter on his jersey is almost a guarantee at some point in his NHL career.

5. Philadelphia Flyers

As versatile as they come, Jake Virtanen can not only play all three forward positions, but also provides a varied skillset that will allow him to succeed in the NHL for a long time. The Flyers don’t have many top prospects on the wing and Virtanen will fill that void. A Couturier-Virtanen pairing in the future is going to terrorize defencemen and goalies alike.

6. Colorado Avalanche (from Detroit Red Wings)

The Detroit Red Wings will finally get a taste of their own medicine when the Avalanche take Vladislav Boyko from the famed CSKA program. Billed as the next Pavel Datsyuk, no longer will Avs fan grimace when playing their hated rivals as they watch Boyko conjure up the same ridiculous passes and stickhandling wizardry. Despite lacking the same two-way acumen as Datsyuk, Boyko more than makes up for it with his creativity and tremendous hockey IQ. Of course, possessing a 6’2” frame certainly helps his case for being drafted even higher. Colorado will be set down the middle with a spectacular 1-2-3 punch down the middle with Duchene-Boyko-Lazar.

7. Washington Capitals (from Phoenix Coyotes)

Leon Draistl would add a serious offensive threat to the Capitals lineup on the left wing. The ‘German Gretzky’, as Draistl has been known in his homeland, is a great puck distributor and contrary to the ‘soft’ European stereotype, is perfectly willing to battle along the boards, in the corners, and in the tough areas. Leon Draistl was also the #2 pick in the 2012 CHL Import Draft.

8. San Jose Sharks (from Edmonton Oilers)

The Sharks add a top-end defense prospect in this year’s draft by drafting Phil Baltisberger from the ZSC Lions in Switzerland. A very skilled two-way defenceman, consensus among scouts is that Baltisberger is ready for the NHL right out of the draft as he is physically ready (6’2”, 202 lbs) and has played two full seasons in the Switzerland’s top league as a 17 and 18-year old. This Swiss defender is competent on both sides of the puck, and fills out the Shark’s top-4 defence in the future alongside Gudbranson, Teubert, and Ryan Murphy.

9. Vancouver Canucks

The Canucks need help everywhere in the prospect pool, but they can’t go wrong with the 6’2”, 216 lb winger from Peterborough, Nick Ritchie. Ritchie addresses many of the needs that have plagued the Canucks in recent years, the primary one being toughness. Ritchie isn’t afraid to engage physically, and there are no worries about him being just a character player as the Ontario native can pass and score with the best of them. Most scouts have compared Nick Ritchie to having the upside of Thomas Vanek or Brandon Dubinsky.

10. Pittsburgh Penguins (from Washington Capitals)

The Penguins take a goal-scoring forward Reid Gardiner to boost their already potent forward corps. Gardiner possesses a great scoring tough and the uncanny ability to find open ice with his hockey IQ and skating. The sky is the limit for the Saskatchewan native as he has already put up a PPG performance as a WHL rookie. He will no doubt find himself among Pittsburgh’s other prospects Strome and Zibanejad in the future.

Next 4 coming in a bit...

2014 CDCSL Mock Draft (#11-14)

11. Florida Panthers

Olivier LeBlanc – A defensive defenceman with all the intangibles that a team looks for. Is a good skater and plays with ice in his veins, which is especially apparent in pressure situations. Projected to take a leadership role in the NHL, LeBlanc will form part of the Panther’s top-4 defence alongside Kulikov, Pouliot, and Maata.

12. St. Louis Blues

Vladislav Lysenko – The Blues go off the board to take a Russian defenceman who has been rocketing up the draft rankings. Despite being labelled as a defensive-minded blueliner, Lysenko is perfectly capable of putting points up on the board as evidenced by his 124-point contribution and his PPG performance in the QMJHL playoffs (17 in 12 GP). Lysenko brings his A-game every night and is a player that projects a calming presence on the ice. He can be expected to feature on the top-4 defence for the Blues with Pietrangelo, Shattenkirk, and Josi.

13. Carolina Hurricanes

Sergei Stetsenko – With an excess of forward prospects, the Hurricanes take Boyko’s teammate from CSKA. Stetsenko is a skilled, mobile defenceman with good size, skating, and a solid offensive game, putting up over PPG seasons in the Russian junior leagues.

14. Columbus Blue Jackets (from New York Rangers)

Richard Bukarts – A slick Latvian forward with great hands capable of manoeuvring the puck in tight areas. Very capable and not afraid to pull off highlight reel moves. Is a talented sniper as well as a playmaker of the highest calibre. Size and strength is a definite limitation but playing in a professional league with Metalurgs has not stopped him from being a PPG player.
