...Bobby Ryan has moved up to 4!
Good read about the latest ISS rankings here
awesome. The top 4 are dominated by North Americans!
Well, the Top 10 is dominated by Canadians for sure, with a few more on the bubble just waiting to get in!
Nice to see two Americans in the top four. This could be another good year for Americans in the draft, if there is one.
couldn't resist, could you?
gasp, 2 americans in the top five! you must be livid!
My thoughts exactly.....
I have no idea how Ryan got ahead of Brule, but I'd want Brule on my team.
well, for one, he didn't. Johnson got ahead of Brule...but do you even know enough about Johnson OR Ryan to know that you'd rather have Brule? Or is the hype machine enough to convince you?
They won't be there by the end of the year! Even CSS has Bourdon ranked ahead of Johnson!
you're too much, hab lover. much too much, i tell you.
Bourdon won't go ahead of Jack Johnson. I can assure you of that. But what do I know?
Jack Johnson will end up #2 when all is said and done. Skill, heart, desire etc. this kid has it all!!!
Keep in mind that I have never seen Brule or Johnson play, either in person or on TV. But I have season tickets for the Owen Sound Attack and I have seen Bobby Ryan probably 50+ times over the past two seasons.
I'm certain there will be players picked ahead of Bobby in the next draft (whenever that might be) but I wouldn't want to be the GM who does it. Granted his skating needs some work, he has unbelievable hands in tight to the net and he uses his body extremely well to hold off defends while protecting the puck. And best of all, from the conversations I've had with him, he really wants to be a player.
