    Initial reaction: pretty good list but I'd have Mueller several places higher, probably at #3 or #4.

    Interesting, Tysen Dowzak ahead of all of Maxwell, Fadden and Irving (although goalies don't appear to be included). I'm not arguing it (yet), but it's not what I would have expected. Also a little suprised to see Little so far down.

    I don't know him but I can tell you that right now, Sheppard don't deserve to be #4...

    At this point Mueller don't deserve to be in the TOP 10!

    Why? Is it his slow start with Everett after what, three games?

    I think they could stand to dismount from that horse. 15 is not lofty at all and I'll say he'll end up half that in top 8.

    I think E-Jay and Mueller should both be higher.

    But man is this a year for the USA so far...

    I predict Dowzak will fall to lower rounds. NHL scouts love his size but he won't be able to keep up at the next level. He will have a tough year in juniors. The kid is a project and needs a lot of work to be a top player. Johnson and Sanguenetti are the real deal.

    Most underrated player so far...Sanguinetti (yes he is that good)

    Most overrated player (and by a large margin)... Dowzak - his size may fool some team into taking him in the first but my feeling is that he will be seen as an early third round pick by June.

    Dowzak is to 2006 what Heshmapour was to 2005. After watching a few NHL games so far this season I think scouts are going to put a premium on world class skating defensman. So far the games that I have watched the D-men are so afraid to touch anyone for fear of drawing a penalty. Slick skating forwards are going untouched to the net.

    So many flaws in the article... I don't even care about the ranking anymore. Get an editor.

    Once the players adjust, that will change. The physical aspect of the game (ie size) will still be very important but you are right the skating angle, lead footed Dmen will not draw much attention.

    Dowzak amd Heshmapour?

    Have you even seen Dowzak? If you had you would know that he isn't much like Heshmapour other than size.

    I've seen Dowzak play but i,ve never seen Heshmapour. They use to call Dowzak Icen Tysen because he didn't have a clue what to do. He would just ice the puck under preasure.

    If Brassard continues on his current pace, the only way Montreal will get him is if they finish between 20th and 30th.

    Yes I think he is that good!

    No.
    I've been hearing good things about Derick for a year now, I can't wait till the Sags play drummond so I can see him (and Latendresse too, of course.)

    It certainly seems like he's playing like a top-10 pick right now, if not top-5.
