Don't forget the TEAM 1260 draft show, Friday starting at 5 PM MST. We look forward to hearing from you after your team makes it's pick.

You guys are so high on John Moore! (compared to most other lists) If he doesn't go top ten I think you should eat each others hats ;)

I think he goes atleast in the top 13 as I pointed out in my mock draft...I think John Moore is going to the one that got away for some teams down the road.

Where Elliott? Wouldn't Team TPS fear a Mike Green-like "d'oh" from passing on him like so many teams did in 2004?

Dean Millard said...

I guess so would most other people as well as I haven't seen Elliot in that many top 30 lists. Have you? Only THN has him as a first rounder. Not to say we all aren't wrong and he's not a nice player though. Just not top 30 for me. Appreciate your comments though.

I've heard enough people [NHL scouts] tell me that he can't play defence that it kept him off my top 30.

I liked him when I saw him come through town though.

Evander Kane is a left winger.
