Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by PecaFan, Jul 23, 2005.
Levasseur takes a huge drop.
Latendresse fell alot as well. He's currently rated late 2nd round.
And it is 100% because nobody saw him play in the second half of the season.
I'm not defending him or anything like that, but don't assume that his drop is because he played poorly...it's because he barely played at all.
Actually he is up from 67 at the mid term rankings.
Whereis Joe Finley projected to go? Early 2nd, I would guess.
Good to see Tyler Plante getting respect from the scouts - sitting as the 3rd NA goalie. He's not a 'sexy' prospect so nobody on these boards hypes him and he's pretty unknown - but he's got tremendous potential. If any NHL team picks a guy like Vincent or Frazee ahead of him they'll be making a big mistake IMO.
What is this? Are they for real? Gragnani taking a drop after the hald season he had after Christmas? Hope thata does not hurt him and M-Andre Cote too, what a shame, no wonder some guys do not want to go play in the Maritimes... lack of visibility and respect...
How on earth can CSB's Quebec scouts have Marc-Andre Cliche (who scored 8 points last year) at #49 and Latendresse at #53?
Especially since CSB is allegedly not a ranking service (although that would be bad enough) but supposed to project where they think guys will be selected. Do they really think Cliche will go ahead of Latendresse? I think they get worse every year ...
Cogliano is ranked 63rd among NA skaters alone...
I'd feel sorry for any team that takes Bass in the second round. Really overrated player.
I think Frazee plays a really good game, also. But I definately think that Plante is better than Vincent.
I am a bit surprised that Finnish Jussi Peltomaa is not on list though there are some players who I would have ranked after him in the list. He has played quite good games in Finnish national team and he already is the most reliable shorthand player in the whole Ã„ssÃ¤t A-junior team (playing against 2 years older boys). However I am not surprised if he gets drafted anyway, and he has time to be drafted in next draft or future.
Why there is no Dylan Hunter in NA skaters list ?
2004 - Round 9, pick 273 - Buffalo Sabres
Apparently CSB decided it didn't like players named Bolduc anymore...
Simon drops from 76th to 165
Francois drops from 85th to 231
Really? I've never heard this before.
He barely played at all in the second half of the season? Wasn't it the other way around? And, BTW, he didn't drop, his ranking went up.
One more thing, that ranking would put him somewhere in the fourth round, not the second, when you include goalies and European skaters. Even I will admit that CSS (it hasn't been CSB for a few years now) has Guillaume to low. He will not last past the second round, hell he may even be picked in the first round.
I will repeat once again what one veteran scout told me - "He'd make a good second round pick, but I'd never take him with a first."
Regardless, I think he'll be picked somewhere between 20-30.
Coe sucked this year, he could have been playing anywhere and he would have been ranked low.
Gragnani droping is odd, but its not because he played in the Maritimes.
No it wasnt the other way around. JP Lavasseur started 3 games after christmas. Sylvain Michaud was Rouyn's #1 goalie.
