LTL Mock Draft

I'm usually pretty craptastic at these but what the hell, let's give it a whirl:

1.NY Islanders: John Tavares C 6-0/195 L (London, OHL)

2.Tampa Bay Lightning: Victor Hedman D 6-6/220 L (MODO, Swe)

3.Colorado Avalanche: Matt Duchene C 5-11/200 L (Brampton, OHL)

4.Atlanta Thrashers: Brayden Schenn C 6-0/198 L (Brandon, WHL)

5.Los Angeles Kings: Evander Kane C 6-1/176 L (Vancouver, WHL)

6.Phoenix Coyotes: Magnus Paajarvi-Svensson LW 6-1/201 L (Timra, Swe)

7.Toronto Maple Leafs: Jared Cowen D 6-5/220 L (Spokane, WHL)

8.Dallas Stars: Jordan Schroeder C 5-8/175 R (Minnesota, WCHA)

9.Ottawa Senators: Dmitry Kulikov D 6-0/183 L (Drummondville, QMJHL)

10.Edmonton Oilers: Ryan Ellis D 5-9/173 R (Windsor, OHL)

11.Nashville Predators: Nazem Kadri C 5-11/167 L (London, OHL)

12.Minnesota Wild: John Moore D 6-2/189 L (Chicago, USHL)

13.Buffalo Sabres: Zack Kassian RW 6-3/210 R (Peterborough, OHL)

14.Florida Panthers: David Rundblad D 6-2/189 R (Skelleftea, Swe)

15.Anaheim Ducks: Scott Glennie RW 6-1/177 R (Brandon, WHL)

16.Columbus Blue Jackets: Oliver Ekman-Larsson D 6-2/176 L (Leksand, Swe)


I just feel like somebody is gonna fall and OEL seems to be falling like a rock on many of the mocks out there. These never go as planned so I'm guessing OEL falls right into the Jackets lap.

Other possibilites:
Carter Ashton RW 6-2/205 L (Lethbridge, WHL)
Jacob Josefson C 6-0/187 L (Djurgarden, Swe)

Sleeper pick:
Chris Kreider C 6-2/201 L (Andover, HIGH-MA)

If I were a betting man I'd say we end up with one of the following 5 players:

Ryan Ellis
Zach Kassian
John Moore
Oliver Ekman-Larsson
David Rundblad

Fire away - any player in particular that you have your eye on?
