Welcome to TLN's 2015 Mock Draft - surely the best mock draft on the internet. Last week, five of our writers came up with our consensus Top 30 Draft Prospects in this month's NHL Draft. This week, those same five wannabe GMs took over the draft tables of the entire league, and called the shots as they saw fit.
The rules were simple: Ryan won our draft lottery, so he would pick first. Jon would follow, then Bobby, myself and Shawn. After five picks we'd run through the order again, each of us taking control of the team that happened to be picking at the time. We then had to give a brief explanation as to why we drafted who we drafted, and we suspect that Jon did a lot of copy/pasting.
You're going to love our mock draft below. You're also probably going to hate it at times as well. Either way, let us know how right and/or wrong we are in the comments below.
And without further delay, the Edmonton Oilers are on the clock...

Between the end of the season and now, you've probably become aware that the Leafs have a franchise-altering decision to make next week at the draft. It's fun to speculate on which way they'll go, but it'll also be nice to leave the house, talk to loved ones, and just return to our regular lives after they make that pick.
We're obviously not the only ones trying to get a read on how the Leafs are approaching fourth overall, as media in Toronto have been trying as hard as possible to get any indications whatsoever. But it seems like no one has any idea who they favor, and that might be because the management team itself still has some internal review to get through.
