  1. There always seems to be a few diamonds in the rough in these rounds so who do you all think were the top 5 taken in rounds 3-4?

    Paul Bissonnette: 121st overall by the Pittsburgh Penguins.

    Nearly made the team out of camp. In reality was cut so that other players would not be lost to waivers. Will be signed and in the AHL next season given that the Pens now need to keep 2 aditional spots open for Ross Lupaschuk and Rob Scuderi on the big club.

    Shane Hynes - Anaheim, 3rd round
    Paul Bissonnette - Pittsburgh, 4th round
    Konstantin Volkov - Toronto, 4th round
    Tyler Redenbach - Phoenix, 3rd round
    Stephen Werner - Washington, 3rd round

    ...would be my top 5.

    While it's obviously a bit early to determine this, some guys I would keep an eye on include:

    70 Jonathan Filewich - Pittsburgh
    71 Dmitry Kosmachev - Columbus
    84 Konstantin Barulin - St. Louis
    92 Alexander Sulzer - Nashville
    93 Ivan Khomutov - New Jersey

    I really like Filewich, Cirillo, and Bissonnette. I know it sounds biased but I love the style that Filewich and Cirillo play and Bissonnette has been labeled a steal since the time he was drafted.

    I think Locke (113th) is the obvious pick of the fourth round, though he's not a diamond in the rough per se...just a player that people assume cannot make it big at the next level. I think he'll prove them wrong over time. Another in the fourth round is Bissonnette (Pit, 121st overall).

    As for the third round, Redenbach (77th), Ruzicka (81st), Munce (82nd), Barulin (84th) and Zakharov (101st) look like they might be better than expected.

  8. I agree about Locke it seems wherever he goes he puts up good numbers.

    His skating is beyond awful though, he's a longshot to see the light of day in the NHL.

    How about Dany Roussin? I think he went in the 7th round. (3+4=7)

    Konstantin Zakharov has been doing pretty well at Moncton in the QMJHL this year. He also got awarded best forward at thew WJC B Tournament, he's from Belarus.

    I've seen him in at least 60 games - his skating is not awful at all. Locke can be pretty deceptive actually, but he looks slower when his linemates are not in sync with him.

    I would have said Khomutov before the season but he has played horrible after the arm injury, I would rather him in Albany next year, junior isn't the place to fix bad habbits.

    Third or Fourth Round people! sigh. Start a new thread if you want to talk about your fifth or seventh round prospect.. lets stay on track..

    Byron Bitz looks a very good pick for Boston.

    I remember Mishail Joukov and Alexander Naurov were two prospects hyped as potential steals at the time.. does anyone know how they are progressing?

    Why? Just curious..

    Agree, and regardless of whether his skating isn't outstanding, he excells in nearly every other facet of the game.

    He's simply carried Ottawa all year.

    Well, he's actually third, behind Redenbach, who actually fits this thread, and Jeremy Williams, who the Leafs took six picks after Brodziak.

    top-rated euro goalie, and has a pretty terrific skillset. came in as a green sm-liiga rookie last year and put up pretty good numbers. probably the best goalie we selected, though hanuljak had a good camp.
