What sort of european prospects are out there
Man I love that name!
The 2007 draft? Thats pretty far away but I heard...
could be good in a few years.
Some of the top euros so far known are:
Maxime Gretchev- Russian Forward plays for Quebec Remparts, typical Russian electrifying forward. A potential franchise forward who is just an offensive machine on the ice, the best Russian forward and will fight with Roman for top Euro available for the draft. He is something of a Zherdev type.
Ondrej Roman- Czech Forward plays for HC Sareza, very electrifying forward possibly one of the best czech to come around in some time...could be up there with Michael Frolik type talent.
David Skokan- A super slovak talent...A forward who is an offensive dynamo, looks to be a top 10 pick n the draft so far.
Marat Kalimulin- A great Russian Defensemen he is a great talent at both ends of the rink. Could be franchise material top 10 is not out of the question.
Jiri Jebavy- Forward for Czech, a great talent has good size and still growing a good scoring forward. So far around the 15 to 20 range for this guy skill level is very high though.
Jakub Voracek- A great sized but kind of weak Czech forward...super skilled and looks to be great. Still looks awkward at times but is overall a great skilled player who is around 20 to 30 range.
Still so much time before this draft names are going to change left andright here.
Young european sensation Vin Diesel could make the Top 10 quite easily
His website displays his numerous abilities : http://www.4q.cc/vin/
I was really impressed with Dwight King, played for team West at the U-17 game I saw, he was only 15 and was 6'3 205, and he was a monster behind the net and in traffic, The more cordinated and confident he gets, along with foot speed he could be special, I wouldn't be surprised to see him be a force down the road.
Wow, that's a lot of knowledge for kids born in what, 89? 90? Nicely done.
That website is hilarious.
I think he will go 1st overall for sure!
Yes, my little finger tells me he is a real scout
When is this Tavares kid eligible?
Depends, actually. If they're going by the new rules by then, he'll be '09 eligible. He's 14 now.
Top 10 players to watch for 2007 so far is:
Angelo Esposito --Fâ€”QMJHL
Tristin Llewellyn-Defense-Indiana (USHL)
Ryan Kerr â€”Defenseâ€”WHL
David Skokan â€”Forwardâ€”Czech
To add some names from the USA as far as top talents among 89's:
Andrew Margolin (G)
Jiri Jebavy is defenseman.
Another D David Stich is excellent 2007 eligible prospect. Played well for Czech U-20(!) team at the recent U-20 tournament in St.Peterburg.
Michal Repik is excellent scorer.
Skokan is Slovak not Czech.
I seen him in two games and he played forward in those and was creating a ton of chances...maybe in the games I seen of him they just moved him to foward for those games????
Biega is Canadian isn't he?
Bah... you're right. They're playing at Salisbury Prep and sometimes I forget that there are Canadians there to!
Whats THE big name of 2007? Player like Kessel, Crosby, Boowmeester, Kovalchuk (and Spezza), Lecavalier, Sedins
Are not the 2007's 16 year olds now? Then what about Jordan Staal and Jaimie McGinn? Aren't they 2007 draft-eligible?
Among North Americans...
no they are 2006 ranked...2007 is late 88s and 89s
There are some more to look out for. Karl Alzner from the Hitmen, Keaton Elllerby from the Blazers, Colton Gillies and Colton Sceviour(has played a few games with Saskatoon and Portland), Zach Torquato and Logan Couture.
