More Mock Drafts

Sports Illustrated's Allan Muir took a shot at a Mock Draft.

McKeen's Editor Shane Malloy did a Mock Draft for FoxSports.

Mark Seidel, a chief scout for ISS, did a mock draft for ESPN.

And Kyle Woodlief's mock draft for Red Line Report.

The ESPN Mock is hilarious!!! There's no way that Turris falls to 6th. I''d be very, very surprised if he did.

And O'Brien going to Vancouver? Still trying to figure that one out.

FYI, Seidel is no longer with ISS.

"Max Giese is a scout for McKeen’s Hockey. His general focus is on players from the USHL and NCAA, but Max keeps a keen eye on talent from around the world. The following is his top 100 NHL eligible players for the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, and the top 5 prospects broken down by attribute. Max is also a regular contributor on the Hockeys Future messageboards and on Sharkspage.com"

WHAT A JOKE, THIS KID IS 19 AND NEVER PLAYED AFTER HIGH SCHOOL. NO WAY HE HAS SEEN ALL THE PLAYERS HE WROTE ABOUT....WHAT A SHAM!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
McKeens should cover the WHA and T3JA!!!!!

Max has a special affinity for his native Wisconsin born players. He has Craig Smith rated at number 82 in North America. Central Scouting did not have him in their final 210. The kid had 5 points in the second half of the season and only dressed for 4 of 9 playoff games. Smith may have a bright future, but I don't think a team is going to use a draft choice on a kid who played himself out of the regular lineup in the USHL.

I believe Allan Muir never played hockey and Kyle Woodlief never was much of a hockey player either.

regardless of whether they were good players, at least they see the players they write reports on!!

You actually think Allan Muir saw all these guys. I would probably say he saw he total of 0 prospects. I'm willing to bet he looked at some mock draft made some random adjustments and then looked at the blurbs about the players hockeysfuture and various scouting reports and just reworded them.

Actually, I have seen each and every one of the players that I have ranked and profiled several times either on tape or in person myself.

What does playing beyond high school hockey have to do with having an eye for talent?

Also, I was going to play for the Wisconsin Mustangs and received interest from the Marquette Rangers. I chose to go with following my dream of becoming a scout.

Far as Craig Smith goes, I wouldn't be surprised if he is next years Trevor Lewis. A kid who has the skating ability, hockey sense, skill, and heart but just hasn't physically matured yet. He still can be a high selection next year.
