who are the front runners ?? besides ovechkin
hahaha actually i dunno if anyone knows.
Ovechkin is like the next Mario L.
HES the massive biggie
i cant even find an article on the other players in the draft
Those players i believe will all go in the top 10, top 15 at worst.
Other possible 1st rounders are John Lammers, Mike Card, Mike Green, Marc Fistric, Drew Stafford, Jakub Lindel, Marek Schwarz, Alvaro Montoya, Kevin Mailhoit. I hope that helps you.
whats the scoop on a few of these guys obviously this draft is not as impressive as 03's crop but how many are serious picks ??
The top end may be similar to last year but the depth from picks 10 thru 30 is not as strong. BUT we still have to see who raises their level of play this season.
New names pushing for top 10-15 status would include Alexandre Picard of Lewiston and Brian Bickell of Ottawa, both 17 yr olds on a goal-a-game so far and looking strong in all aspects of their game, not just lucky feeding-off-famous-linemates starts.
Wouldn't Lauri Tukonen be included in at least the bottom list? At least from something I read..
The player I just fell in love with last year and still am is Adam Pineault F 6-3/200 Holyoke He's a very underated player who should be top 10 for sure!
Theres going to be three very good goalies in the first round.
Obviosly Devan Dubnyk. More lesser known ones are Marek Schwarz,Corey Schneider.
My steal in the draft so far would be Dmitri ****ikov. I just love the kid but he's very small. Only 5-8ish so that well probally take him down to the 2nd round.
2004 has alot ...I mean alot of big kids in the draft, all 1st round potential. Like we said this draft wont be as talented as the 2003 class but it's definitly a good draft.
Lauri Tukonen F 6-2/195 Hyvinkaa is somthing. He's a speed demond. He's gonna be a good player I think. I wouldnt mind him being a Shark lets say He's going to go before the teams who made the playoffs pick , Believe me.
I agree with you on ****ikov he is small but alwyas seems to be in a good position to score goals.
He probably gets this alot, but I heard he's quite a $hitty player.
I wouldn't be surprised to see Jakub Sindel go in the top 10. He's quite fast and has all the tools to become a great NHL sniper.
Back the bus up, if Picard goes in the top 15 i will **** myself.
He is good, but not top end talent good. Plus he is 18 not 17.
There are also about six draft eligible goalies in the OHL who are looking quite good. Regarding Schneider, has he played against top competition or has he just been playing prep hockey in New England. I know there are some top players in that league, but not as many as in juniors. Also, their schedule is very short.
Unless there are two Alexandre Picard's, he was drafted last year by the Flyers in the 3rd round.
Where does UofM goalie Al Montoya fit in?
There are 2, actually 3.
Theres another Alex Picard, forward aged 15 playing in Q MAAA. Should play in the Q next year.
The Czechs could have four of their own go in the top 10. Olesz, Schwarz, Sindel and Smid all have the stuff.
What's the opion, if any, on Robbie Schremp's damage that he did to himself by demanding a trade from Mississauga?
Stupid Move by Schremp. Expeacially on his draft year. This well definitly make the scouts who are on the bubble with him look twice. He comes off Selfish, and imature on this one. The team was 3-0 and had a one time NHL coach. He's got a ego it seems. He's still gonna be the top player in the CHL to get drafted I think.
Yeah, personally I think it won't affect him too much, but you have to figure he won't be getting the same ice-time in London. I'm starting to wonder what the problem is in Missisauga though. Spezza, Jarret, O'Sullivan, Schremp all wanted out at one point. I really don't have much respect for these players that want out for what seems to be that they don't want to play for a loosing team. Missisauga could have Schremp and Jarret in the line-up right now and probably be the team to beat in the OHL. Go Figure!!!
