    I watched a short feature on Dobson on Sportsnet last night. He’s my guy now. Just exudes Character, Commitment to being the best, Capability in all zones in the clips that were shown. If the Oilers get him i’ll be over the moon.


    Nice Job DN!

    I liked Dobson months ago then he played better down the stretch so I doubt we will get him. However I think more forwards will go in the top 10 then once thought. Whoever Montreal picks will change the draft if it’s off the board or varries in any way.

    This is my mock draft now
    1-Buf. Dahlin
    2-Car. Svechnikov
    3-Mon. Tkachuk/kotkaniemi
    4-Ott. Zadina
    5-ARi . Dobson
    6-Det. Hughes
    7- Van. Bouchard or Centre (Tkachuk) if Avaiable . They are rebuilding so might even take Boqvist
    8- chi. if Boqvist available they take him to replace aging vets. No rush on time with him. Safe play is Wahlstrom. Wildcard Hayton.
    9-NyR. Walstrom or Bouchard ( best player available ) wildcard is Hayton
    10-Edm. We get what’s left over which could be most likely in This order Boqvist.Wahlstrom. Bouchard.
    I would even take Wilde and trade down if possible for the 12 overall and a good 2nd round pick.
    Could TY smith get taken before the 9th and shake things up ? His offensive numbers are excellent , that could sway things greatly. Same with Hayton and possibly Farabee if they move into the top 10.
