    Default Craig Button's mock draft

    They made a special on it, but here's the list.

    http://www.tsn.ca/draftcentre/feature/?id=121032

    Biggest surprise to me is Goldobin not being a first round pick. I think he'll be chosen in the 20s somewhere, but I may be higher on him than most.
    12-team Keeper pool, straight points for forwards & dmen. Goalies get: 2 points per win, 3 per shutout, 1 point per assist & 1 point per shootout loss.

    League champ in 2013 and 2015.

    Top 8 forwards, 5 dmen and 2 goalies count.

    We keep 15 players (any position) plus two rookies.

    Forwards: Ovechkin, Kessel, Pavelski, Stone, Voracek, Little, Benn, Iginla, Foligno, Kesler, Viraten
    Defence: Letang, Carlson, Shattenkirk, Yandle, Streit, Gostisbehere
    Goalies: Price, Fleury

    I was surprised by the fact that Ho-Sang didn't make the top 30 either. Lots of talent with, apparently, lots of attitude too. I think he goes in the top thirty, maybe even thirtieth to the Devils.

    Just because we as fantasy guys value him and his offense highly doesnt mean NHL teams dont see an issue with other parts of his game. I am not surprised at all that hes not a top 30 guy.

    I dont see the Oilers letting Reinhart pass in favor of Draisaitl though.

    I count 7 defencemen going in his mock draft. Considering the lack of higher end Dmen in this years draft, most teams looking for backend help will grab them earlier then normal. I am willing to bet in most fantasy drafts, you will be hard pressed to find 3 Dmen go in your first 30. That means some forwards are going to slip in the real NHL draft. I guess that means Goldobin and Ho-Sang fell due to the D taken in his mock.

    Ho sang is a do not draft for many teams. Goldobin is a perimeter floater type to a tee.

    looks like a completely reasonable mock.

    i like Goldobin a lot, but would not be shocked to see him fall out of the 1st. Russian + finesse style + dumb GMs.
