    Compared to MyNHLDraft.com, the following players slipped to the second round:

    Egor Afanasayev
    Matthew Robertson
    Mikko Kokkonen
    Ilya Nikolayev

    Moving into the LGK top 31 were:

    Connor McMichael
    Marcus Kallionkieli
    Brett Leason
    Alex Vlasic

    Same comparison to draftsite.com's mock draft:
    Missing from LGK first round:

    Matthew Robertson
    Samuel Poulin
    Vladislav Kolyachonok
    Tobias Bj?rnfot
    Jakob Pelletier

    Moving into the LGK top 31 (draftsite's draft position in parentheses):

    Marcus Kallionkieli (80)
    Nils Hoglander (34)
    Nicholas Robertson (54)
    Lassi Tompson (36)
    Alex Vlasic (32)

    I love the fact that some of you went off the board (some, way off the board cough*King'sPawn*cough). It will be a lot of fun to see if some of these players go higher/lower than expected. It will also be fun watching all these kids develop over the coming years.

    If nothing else, comes from this exercise, I've realized that this draft is looking pretty deep second-tier-wise. The Kings may do as well with the 22 pick as they do with the 5, and the 33 pick may be much more valuable than in most other drafts.

    Great job guys; it was more fun than I'd expected.


    I'm honestly surprised Kallionkieli is ranked that low; maybe some final rankings released this month will have him in the 50s. I am always terrible at mock drafts to begin with though lol.

    Add me to the list of having Spencer Knight on the list but not picking him. I actually had him for the Hurricanes at #28 and was already copying and pasting the text and the link to a picture, but then decided to go with Robertson instead.

    I just wanted the give the Arcadia kid some props.

    Thanks, Salami, for organizing this. I learned A LOT about the draftees this year; definitely way more than any other year because of this thread.

    I'm really anxious to see how close we get to the actual draft.

    I have a feeling at least one of my picks in this thread will be used against me someday!

    It would be funny if it's the Jack Hughes pick.

    This was fun to follow.

    Just one random thought that just popped into my mind:

    They're most likely going to be just fine with Luukkonen. There's just something about Finnish goalies that makes me think they're more likely to pan out - and I now came to realize it's likely their calm and composed nature, culturally.

    Hahahah probably, yes.

    Just make sure you have a sauna at the training premises.

    And on the airplane.

    And in every hotel you go to.

    And you're all set for the next Rinne/Kiprusoff.

    I did a comparison between our LGK Mock Draft 2019 and the real draft.

    A summary:

    (1) 4 of 31 were exact hits (right person, right spot):
    Hughes--1
    Kakko--2
    Bowen--4
    Boldy--12

    (2) Total of 23/31 (including the 4 above) were chosen in the 1st round

    (3) 7 of 31 were chosen in 2nd round:
    Kaliyev, Lavoie, Leason, Brink, Hoglander, Robertson, Vlasic

    (4) 1 of 31 chosen in 5th round:
    Kallionkieli

    We did darn well!
    Thank you to Salami for organizing and all who participated.
