Mock Drafting Mockery

Illegal Curve linked to a couple mock draft sites so I thought I'd take a look around for any others and you know what? I didn't find a lot.

Even within the three I found, two haven't been updated since the season end and therefore contain a nice little fail in them where they have the Avs drafting second overall, which is an impossibility.

But if you like speculating, here's some more fodder for you. And don't forget, we'll be able to make even more informed random speculation once the first 14 slots are determined after the draft lottery tonight at 6:00pm MT on TSN and VS.

the 2nd Mock Draft says that Evander Kane is similar to Marian Gaborik.

They must not have actually seen his style of play. Last I knew, Kane could go into a corner and come out with both testicles still attached.

I find it hard to believe that people are actually talking about the draft lottery. All we're doing here is determining the order of the draft. I admit that it is somewhat newsworthy, but do we need something to obsess about that badly? Somehow this makes me less surprised that the league is in the state that it is in... check out my blog if you feel like it.

You realize this is an Avalanche blog and they just went through their worst season ever? ;)

Though the draft lottery ended pretty anti-climatically, it's still news and had some intrigue about it. The Avs could have moved up and snagged the #1 slot and that would have been huge. But it didn't and we're still stoked for who the Avs could pick at #3.

For teams that finished outside the playoff race, this is what's left for them. So why shouldn't it be covered?
