Community NHL Mock Draft 2012: Tampa Bay Lightning, Take 2

New, comments


Knowing your team has two picks in the first round going into the draft must be wonderful. The draft is already a great deal of fun, but getting two cracks at the pinata and having months to prepare for such a situation... pure heaven. Plus, they have Steven Stamkos, Martin St. Louis, and Vincent Lecalvalier? Sometimes, the hockey gods are benevolent beyond words. Now, if only they could find a goalie.

Too bad the Hawks just took the highest rated goalie in the draft.

Of course, Malcom Subban is still available, but is it time to reach for the Bolts? Or is it time to go with traditional thinking and select the best player available? Time to vote.

Our draft thus far:

  1. Edmonton Oilers: Nail Yakupov
  2. Columbus Blue Jackets: Ryan Murray
  3. Montreal Canadiens: Alex Galchenyuk
  4. New York Islanders: Filip Forsberg
  5. Toronto Maple Leafs: Mikhail Grigorenko
  6. Anaheim Ducks: Matthew Dumba
  7. Minnesota Wild: Jacob Trouba
  8. Carolina Hurricanes: Teuvo Teravainen
  9. Winnipeg Jets: Morgan Rielly
  10. Tampa Bay Lightning: Griffin Reinhart
  11. Washington Capitals (from Colorado): Radek Faksa
  12. Buffalo Sabres: Cody Ceci
  13. Dallas Stars - Zemgus Girgensons
  14. Calgary Flames - Olli Maata
  15. Ottawa Senators - Brendan Guance
  16. Washington Capitals - Sebastian Collberg
  17. San Jose Sharks - Pontus Aberg
  18. Chicago Blackhawks - Andrei Vasilevski
