    Episode 361: Mock Draft v2.0

    Cam Robinson and Rachel Doerrie join the show to discuss draft philosophy, and how to maximize value when everyone is looking at roughly the same stuff. We make each of the 15 lottery picks based on what we think should happen given the talent available, not necessarily what we think will happen at the actual draft. We also get into the strengths and weaknesses of each top prospect, how their skills translate to the next level, and what a reasonable NHL comparable for their game is.

    18:30 1st pick – Quinton Byfield
    25:40 2nd pick – Alexis Lafreniere

Essential Listening

I listen to a lot of podcasts…..and a lot of hockey podcasts. After 3-4 years of listening wide and far, the Hockey PDOcast has clearly emerged as one of the best. Along with 31 Thoughts — this is the one podcast I never miss.

Not the single ,

Best Hockey Analytical Podcast Out There

I’ve been listening to the PDOcast since it was plugged on MvsW when that was a show. Back when it was Dim and Yost hosting. And the quality of the material and recording has only improved every year. I missed it sorely during the four month hiatus and this podcast has changed the way I think about hockey and allowed me to enjoy it more. Dim is probably one of the most deserving people out there of all the good stuff coming his way. I expect to see him become a staple at some major network someday but until then he’ll keep entertaining us here. Thanks Dim!
