Every draft ahead of the National Hockey League Entry draft, a few things are expected. This year is no different with the main story already written: Rasmus Dahlin is considered to be the No. 1 prospect in the 2018 NHL Draft and the Buffalo Sabres will happily nab him first overall with the pick they managed to keep with their best odds at the lottery last month. 

"I've been watching on YouTube and, boy, it's incredible," Sabres head coach Phil Housley told The Buffalo News on Friday when chatting about Dahlin. "He's going to be a complete package in today's NHL."

When looking at the projected order for the rest of the first round, TSN and their senior scouting reporter Craig Button are pretty certain about a few things. For example, many other insiders like the one from the TSN panel, are pretty sure about the Big Four in this year’s draft — Dahlin, Russian winger Andrei Svechnikov, Czech winger Filip Zadina and American winger Brady Tkachuk — as they hold down the same spots as they did at mid-season in the mock draft. 

Just a few weeks to go before the draft itself, which will take place on June 22 in Dallas, fans would think that their favourite team is feeling confident with their picks or the players they would like to select. However, Mark Edwards, the founder and director of Scouting Service and Analyst on NHL Network Radio's Prospects show reveals some shocking news from someone seriously involved in the process. 

And it isn't good... 

On his Twitter account, Edwards shares the comments made by one NHL scout and it sounds quite worrisome for several teams. Here is what he has revealed: 

"One #NHL teams scout to me: “15 to 45 is going to be a shit show.” #NHLDraft"
