"Game Time" Prospect Sunday: THE '14 FILE, Feb. 16, 2014

Continuing with the results from the seven-round Mock Draft on the "Hockey's Future" boards...

==================================================

Once again in this installment of "The '14 File," our focus will be on the first complete (seven round) Mock Draft of the season. This is our attempt to simulate a potential game plan for the Blues at the real draft this June in Philadelphia, and to see the outcome of the draft strategies we have formulated.

The first four picks of the Mock Draft correspond (roughly) to the spots in which the Blues will actually be picking in June; the exception is the 65th overall pick in this mock (near the top of the third round), which was acquired in trade after dealing the 56th overall pick (near the end of the second round).

The strategy with these picks was to select the best player available, with a caveat; we had identified several areas in which the Blues' organization was lacking in depth, and determined to bolster that depth with these picks. The areas, in no particular order, were: Offense from the wings, offense from the blueline, a goaltender with amateur eligibility (college/junior) left, and a center.

We feel we addressed each of those areas with these picks:

From here forward, picks shown in RED will represent picks acquired through trades in this mock. Picks not highlighted in this way represent picks that the Blues currently own.

Our strategy for these next few picks is to add "project" players to the organization. Updates to be posted here as more picks are made.
