    I thought with all the 06 draft talk going on, plus the fact that I have little to no knowledge, that I would throw this out. Let's hear some opinions? Who fits in the best in the categories below?

    Best Face Off man?
    Best Sniper?
    Best Playmaker/Passer?
    Fastest Forward?
    Best skater (forward)
    Best in the crease?
    Hardest shot (forward)
    Best checker(forward)?
    Best defensive forward?
    Best fighter?
    Biggest Pest?
    Best defensive defenseman?
    Best offensive defenseman?
    Fastest defenseman?
    Best skater (d-man)?
    Best crease-clearer?
    Hardest shot (d-man)?
    Best checker (d-man)?

    After seeing his moves from he WJC, I'd go with Kessel as the best skating forward. Incredibly fast with the puck and very agile.
     

  3. I'll add best shot. I think Kessel's speed and shot are above everyone else in this draft that I have seen.

    I'll nominate Mike Forney for the best sniper. No Kessell :p:

    Do these seem fairly accurate? I put them together from what other's have been saying.

    Best Playmaker/Passer? Brassard
    Fastest Forward? Kessel
    Best defensive forward? Staal
    Best fighter? Didiomete/Pekham
    Biggest Pest? Ryan White
    Best defensive defenseman? Wishart
    Best offensive defenseman? Sanguinetti

    Well those are only a few.

    From all of the prospects I have seen play:

    Best Face Off man?Toews
    Best Sniper?Forney
    Best Playmaker/Passer?Toews
    Fastest Forward?Kessel
    Best skater (forward)Kessel
    Best in the crease?Staal
    Hardest shot (forward)Kessel probably
    Best checker(forward)?Not sure...
    Best defensive forward?Toews
    Best fighter?Not sure....
    Biggest Pest?Not sure....
    Best defensive defenseman?Maybe Mark Mitera?
    Best offensive defenseman?Erik Johnson
    Fastest defenseman?Erik Johnson
    Best skater (d-man)?Erik Johnson
    Best crease-clearer?Erik Johnson
    Hardest shot (d-man)?Erik Johnson

    Remember, I based these only on the people I have actually seen play, so if the person you think should be there isn't, it's probably because I've never seen them play...
