    That's a lot of D-men right there; isn't 2008 also supposed to be a top-heavy d-men draft?

    no Pat Kane? while he hasn't been on par with Gagner, he definitely deserves to be in the top 30, probably top 20.
    His offensive upside is seemingly unlimited, he packs a heavy elusive shot and has a very dependable playmaking game. He does need to clean up his play in his own zone and until he does so Gagner's solid 2-way play will over shadow Kane.


    duff: alot of those defensemen are coming out of the WHL too, interesting...

    Gillies seems to be falling, i remember last year they had him ranked #1. Also who s this Karamnov kid I have never heard of him. Some brief scouting report and stats from him would be greatly appreciated.

    I was thinking the same thing as well. I haven't been able to see him play yet, but from reading about his performance in the international tournaments and his play so far with London it would seem that he should be a projected 1st rounder.

    Alex Grant is the one who is falling. Anyone who picks him up in the 2nd or 3rd round is going to have a gem. He does it all.

    Maybe his game does not transfer well to the NHL? :dunno:

    It is still very early.

    Are there any defenseman this year that have the potential to be as good as JayBo or Erik Johnson?

    His game translates incredibly well to the new NHL. He's undersized, but small guys are even more valuable in today's game.

    No, no one even close. Of the top two guys on the ISS list, Petrecki will be an Adam Foote type, but won't ever score much. Katic is undersized and compares to a Marek Zidlicky-style player.

    I see, thanks for the info.

    I have never seen Katic play. If he compares to Zids, is he purely an offensive defenseman?

    I'm looking to draft the best defenseman next year in my keeper pool.

    i think you might have answered you own question regarding pat kane.you have to play at both ends of the ice to get to the the next level.one dimensional players don't make it to the nhl.

    Can anyone give a scouting report on Kyle Turris, strengths/weaknesses who does he compare to, etc.

    Voracek is listed as a Center on the above list, however, he listed as a RW on the Q's site. Anyone know which one it is?

    Thanks

    I guess that all depends on how large an area that one dimension can cover. This comes from McKeen's:

    and another from the u-18

    I'm not sure where you're getting the one-dimensional talk from.

    Pure skater, probably one of the best in the OHL if not the whole CHL. He sees the ice very well and is a great passer, he is an offensive defensman who is on the smaller side but he isn't scared to mix it up and doesn't back down and has some fiestyness to his play.

    He should be a Top 4 Dman and a PP guy.
     
  17. On a related note, BigBobbyMac just wrote in his column that the #1 slot is most likely a 2-horse race between Espo and Voracek, and he doesn't even mention Couture once in the whole article. Is the sentiment that Couture is unlikely to go #1 a widespread one here, or did Bob just miss the boat?
     

  18. The thing about Katic that could make him incredibly valuable the way the game is played today is his tremendous skating ability.

    He has really picked up his game the last 2 weeks or so. He does indeed do it all...but he is not particularly great at one thing...that isnt bad, but i find most people dont notice him out there as much because he isntly overly physical, he isnt overly offensive, he just makes good plays.

    He talked about Couture during the pre-game of the Nucks/Wild game. He said he feels Voracek and Espo will battle it out for #1 and he sees Couture as "the best of the rest". His only qualm with Couture was that he doesnt do things at high speed, unlike Voracek and Espo.

    That being said, he also mentioned that its October, and things can get pretty hellish from now until June.

    :biglaugh: you are kidding right. Bure, hemsky,afinogenov, kovalchuk, gaborik, hossa, st.louis, sullivan. i guess they didnt make it because they are one dimensional players. if they just had some defense they definitely would have made the nhl:sarcasm: :biglaugh: there is even D-men thats one dimensional offensively. like visnovsky, gonchar,zidlicky. i really dont understand what you are talking about. that was just stupid.:shakehead

    Hossa? Hossa is one of the best 2-way forwards in the game.

    ok sorry. i was just trying to take someone off the top of my head, but that was really not the point. i'm just saying you can play in the nhl even if you are one dimensional. and he is not one of the best 2-way players. he is good when i give it som thought, but not one of the best imo.

    Hey LaLa, what have you seen from MacMillan so far? What do you expect from him this year?
