Does anybody know when the csb final rankings will come?
According to http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=368881, it will be on April 25th.
CSS Final Rankings?
Last year they were released on April 20th. Does anybody know when they're due this year?
I've heard April 25th for this year, which would be tomorrow.
Turris the #1 ranking:
Wow, definitely some surprises there for me. Good read, though.
That article just screwed up everything that I thought... not to mention redlines were all screwed up as well. This is going to be an interesting draft for sure.
Redline really dislike Cherepanov. I'm not sure I agree with them labeling him a dog. From what I saw in the two tournaments he was a pretty determined player with elite scoring ability.
So where are the final rankings??
i am wondering the same thing. it was just an article
1. Kyle Turris
2. Patrick Kane
3. James van Riemsdyk
4. Keaton Ellerby
5. Karl Alzner
6. Sam Gagner
7. Jakub Voracek
8. Angelo Esposito
9. Zach Hamill
10. David Perron
Those ranking are a joke! Voracek 7th ? Perron 10th ? CSB and REDLINE are just not credible anymore
finally putting voracek where he should be.
Couture at 19
Shattenkirk at 32
Well I guess the Habs will be able to draft them both and become a great team in a few years
Very surprised with Perron at 10. I don't think he will be drafted in the 1st round. As much as I want to see it happen but it won't happen. He will be a very good 2nd or 3rd round pick.
Why b/c they aren't all the same or don't agree with your own personal list?
Its not the way I read it all....to me the mix amongst the draft rankings just goes to show how wide open this draft really is which will make a lot of fun come draft day(s).
Big jump for Hamill
22 --> 9
Where did you find this?
my sentiments exactly. This is like the 2003 draft all over again (although I think the top-end has lower potential then their 03 counterparts) in who can go where. Personally I have no problem with any of the scouting services, a little disagreement is a prety good thing IMO.
The parody in this draft means one thing; each team will get a high ranking prospect and be happy with them.
In earnest, I was encouraged by reading the differences between the two scouting services because it makes for more highly regarded players than we had initially thought. It means the pack is just that much more close together and anybody picking in the Top 15 is going to get a prospect that one scouting service or the other thinks VERY highly of. To me, that's a good thing. We'll see how it plays out, but it doesn't appear as if there is going to be too much drama on draft day.
I usually dont have a beef with rankings but this quote from a scout about Perron had me shaking my head...
"Perron has been unbelievable,â€ says Bordeleau. â€œI've seen him most of the time on the road and he's been dominant. Plus, he is very good defensively.
OK...I agree hes been unbelievable and hes rising for me, but he is by no means good defensivly...if anything thats a huge glaring weakness for him...
Cherepanov out of the top 10?
Nice, the Oilers can grab him at 15.
I think you mean parity...but then again...maybe that's just a Freudian slip given your opinion of the ranking?
Yeah, and I guess we pick Cole with our 6th pick.
Shattenkirk's fall is pretty puzzling.
