From this yearÂ´s draft 3rd round, which player you think could be NHL top player or steal? It is always risky with europeans in later rounds as they can develop into top line material but prefer to stay safe at home. I am from Czech republic so I can make some comments on Tomas Popperle (5th round, 131.pick, Columbus, goaltender). He went 15-9-1 for talent loaded Sparta Prague last year with .949 pct and 1.58 GAA. He was bit of a sudden bloomer - thats why he was so low on teams chart. But Blue Jackets european scout Milan Tichy saw big potential here and I agree with him. Popperle is 21 and apart from one game in playoffs he showed good maturity. He traveled to Columbus to fight for Syracuse starter job. Nothing to lose in this age, he can break through. Another picks: There is some buzz and scepticism about Danny Syvret (3rd round, 81.pick, Edmonton, defense). Ilja Zubov had very nice show at WJC. He went 4th round, 98.pick to Ottawa,C) I heard some positive notes on Slava Trukhno (4th round, 120.pick, Edmonton, center). Slava Buriavchikov (6th round, 191.pick, Buffalo, defense) was most productive defenseman at WJC. Would you include some other names? ? ?
