2013 Mock draft includes two trades....

IMO, And just for fun i thought id try out a mock draft as GM for the day, here it goes. im convinced the first four players to be selected are all rock soild set in stone, they are with a little help from mynhldraft.com

1 Colorado Avalanche Seth Jones Ht/Wt:6' 4"/205 lbs Position:D Team: Portland (WHL)

2 FLORIDA PANTHERS Jonathan Drouin Ht/Wt:5'11"/185 lbs Position:LW Team: Halifax (QMJHL)

4 NASHVILEE PREDATORS Aleksander Barkov Ht/Wt:6' 2"/209 lbs Position:C Team: Tappara (FIN)

5. CAROLINA HURRICANES Have publicly stated that they wold be shopping this pick for a player that can play right away, it would be very costly to move up and this is a deep draft. it would cost us the 8th pick and 48th pick. I will say they keep the pick and seleect, Darnell Nurse Ht/Wt:6' 4"/190 lbs Position:D Team: Sault Ste. Marie (OHL)

6. CALGARY Elias Lindholm Ht/Wt:6' 0"/190 lbs Position:C/RW Team: Brynäs (SWE)

7 EDMONTON OILERS Have a Need For A Goaltender And Their GM Has Sais So Publicaly That They Will Move This Pick To Get one. TRADE to BUFFALO SABRES RYAN NUGENT-HOPKINS AND 7TH PICK OVERALL TO THE BUFFALO SABRES trade RYAN MILLER (must waive no trade clasue) And TYLER ENNIS AND 69TH PICK 3RD RND.to Edmonton BUFFALO SABRES SELECT

Valeri Nichushkin Ht/Wt:6' 4"/202 lbs Position:LW/RWTeam: Chelyabinsk (RUS) Player must fufill 2 year contract with KHL and thus drops to pick 7. wont play before 2015 NHL season.

8. BUFFALO SABRES Rasmus Ristolainen Ht/Wt:6' 4"/205 lbs Position:D Team: TPS (FIN)

9-15TH PICKS

9TH NEW JERSEY DEVILS Sean Monahan CENTER

10. DALLAR STARS Hunter Shinkaruk CENTER

11. PHILIADELPHIA FLYERS Nikita Zadorov DEFENSEMAN

12. PHOENIX COYETES Max Domi CENTER

14. COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS Ryan PulockDEFENCEMAN

15. NY ISLANDERS Alexander Wennberg CENTER

16TH BUFFALO SABRES Frederik Gauthier Ht/Wt:6' 5"/210 lbs Position:C Team: Rimouski (QMJHL) A STRONG FORCHECKING 2 WAY POWER FORWARD.

30. Robert Hagg Ht/Wt:6' 2"/205 lbs Position:D Team: MODO (SWE)

SO, IN the not so distant future our team will look something like this not early nest year but later after oylpics and 2014-2015 season

1B.) GRIGORENKO NUGENT-HOPKINS FLYNN (RFA)/ARMIA MOVE GRIG TO LW

3.) LARSON GIRGENSONS GAUTHIER Strong checking line that can score.

4.) KAELETA/TROUP FOLIGNO OTT

AS i said this was for fun and the suffering will continue well into next season. there are no quick fixes. I Included two trades. Ryan Miller will be moved so get over it. Im hoping we can convince Thomas Vanek to sign a two year extension. leino needs to renegoite his expensive contract, by adding one more year.

Thank You, JLK
