    Four players each from Russia (Vasyunov, Igor Makarov, Fiala and Belyakov),
    Czech Republic (Frolik, Marcinko, David Ruzicka and Tlusty) and Finland with three(Joensuu, Osala and Enlund) plus one slovak(Skokan) should be in the top 50, maybe even 30. It should atleast be better than 2005.

    Anze Kopitar (Slovenia!!) and Nicklas Bergfors (Sweden)should hit the top 10, at least top 15. They have been very impressive this season.

    He's talking about the 2006 draft.There will be some interesting euro prospects in the 2005 draft , as well.

    I hope , the habs will draft Anze Kopitar.He has size and some sick skills.

    Sorry!
    :speechles
    But in Sweden we have a couple of good prospects for the 2006 draft, that might hit the top 50. Forwards: Oskar Johansson, Tony Lagerström and Patrik Berglund. Defenders: Erik Moe and Niclas Andersén. Goalies: Stefan Ridderwall and Jhonas Enroth. Ridderwall could really be something special. He has size and his dad is a goalie legend in Sweden.

    Can't get I forgot them, I'm from Sweden myself! At least 2 should be top 50 material(in my opinion).

    I think Igor is related to Sergei.
    Any thoughts on Alex Vasyunov and Sergey Belyakov?
    Could any of them be as good as Kovy, Ovy or Malkin.

    Ridderwall and Moe. As you said, Ridderwall could be something special.

    Fiala is Czech not Russian, Marcinko is Slovak not Czech.
    Czech forward David Kveton is first round material too.

    David Ruzicka is not related.
    But Vladimir Ruzicka has son(89 birthdate) and he is solid prospect.

    ...and Skokan was born late in 1988, so he is 2007 eligible.

    I know I missed a couple of things.
    But mostly I was wondering if 2006 was a strong draft.
