2014 NHL Mock Draft - November Update

New, comments

The Oilers are back in a familiar spot.

Can Buffalo rebuild in a single draft?  With two first round picks, three second round picks and Ryan Miller, Steve Ott, Matt Moulson and Henrik Tallinder left to trade, the Sabres could have 9 of the first 60 picks in June.  They sit atop the projected mock draft, though subject to the luck of the lottery, and have the inside track on Sam Reinhart.

The sources for the consensus list are The Scouting Report, Future Considerations, ISS, Red Line Report, Craig Button of TSN, Corey Pronman of ESPN and Bob McKenzie from TSN. Their rankings are weight by their accuracy in ranking previous drafts: Bob McKenzie's rankings carry the most weight as he was the most accurate prognosticator in the group.

The source for the draft order is the Copper & Blue Power Rankings.
