Mock Drafts, think of them what you'd like, but every NHL GM and their staff are constantly pouring over information to formulate their own outlook on the upcoming draft.
Scenario after scenario is being applied and back up plans and potential trade offers are being considered.
This is where the GM leans on his staff. This is where the thought process changes from potential to actual.
Here's where we see each hockey club narrow their list of possible interviews prior to the draft. This is where 30 game plans are finalized and set into action.
Right now, each NHL team has a "war room" situation set up to brain storm and forecast each teams moves.
It becomes a living think tank—if you will.
Over the next two weeks the show will go on the road to Los Angeles California for the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
Hotel rooms meant for getting sleep will be converted to make shift offices. Cell phones will be blazing and fax machines signing.
Hope you enjoy my Mock Draft. I based this Mock Draft on two ideas. Each teams potential need and each player’s potential chance of eventually playing for the team that drafts them.
Good Luck to all teams and players.
