    IMO the top 5 will be as good as 2004 and the whole first round will be as deep as 2003. I don't say that the whole draft will be as deep as 2003 but just the first round.

    2005 is going to have great elite talent early in the draft. As well as amazing depth. If the players continue to devolope and get better, this draft could be even better then the 2003 entry draft!

    I agree, we'll have to see how things progress, but so far it looks spectacular, great depth and perhaps even better top end than '03

    Exactly how good did the 03 draft look in early 02? The 03 draft is looking better every day ... but I hardly think the 05's are a "long shot" to match up.

    Two out of three of Canada's first line at the next WJC's could very well be Crosby and Latendresse, both 05's who should match up well against the 03's.

    The 2003 looked like a damn amazing draft, even in early 02.

    Some of the players that were hyped way early ended up not turning out as fantastic as expected, however, while others came out strong and rose sharply.

    Do you think any team will lose on purpose next year to increase their chances of getting Sidney Crosby? :dunno:

    That is always a possibility at the management level. At the players' level on the ice, this is highly unlikely.

    To know which managers are ready to give up, it will take a lot of time. The first order of business for all teams is the next CBA. This is such an enormous key to the respective future of each team that it can't be ignored.

    The UFA status might be altered in different ways. The RFA status as well. Entry contracts. Possible salary cap. Everything can change.

    Then teams will draft. And everybody will be one year older. There will be training camps, nice surprises.

    And then, only then, teams will start building their season's plans, slowly. Do not forget that the development of Crosby throughout next season will also be a factor.

    The only good bet to tank every year is Rick Dudley. He lives to lose.

    I wouldn't say that now. IMO 2005 looks to be shapping up better than 2003. With Crosby, Latendresse, Brule, Bertram, Anikeenko, Cogliano etc etc I think these players will be more skilled than most of the players in 2003. Plus to to mention I think so far the 1st round looks to have better skilled players and the draft is looking super deep right now. Has the makings to be better than 2003 IMO.

    Its a banner year for the QMJHL as well.

    Could have 3 in the top 10 and possibly 6-7 in the first Round.

    he is just 16, he does't play like everybody hopes to, but I think that if he bulk up during the summer and if he realize that he has talent but it takes heart to play pro he would probably be drafted if not he won't be drafted.

    And yes he is 2005 eligible
