Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by RangerBoy, Jan 23, 2005.
I noticed Matt Lashoff is on his "rising" list. I guess he didn't see him at the top prospects game...........
Bobby Ryan is also on the Rising List .. perhaps he is reffering to his Hospital costs presently ..
I think this report was WJC based and written before the prospects game .. IMO
We should watch for both players and see if they are on the falling list after the prospects game ..
O'Marra imo should be out of the top 10.Common , he impressed nobody so far.
He impressed me.
Levassuer and Price both ahead of Rask...don't think so.
And three goalies in the top ten IS NOT going to happen.
This isnt a mock draft.
He ranks them by talent.
That can be very faulty.
This guy had Ivan Khomutov at #10 at one point.
Yeah i dont agree with everything he says but he is ranking the players by who he thinks is the best. Not when they will be picked.
Yeah, but still... have Rask behind two other guys is wierd... atleast to me.
On what games exactly are you basing yourself on? Not on the games he played at the WJC I guess... as Rask was mediocre at best.
Brule back at #2.
Maybe you should've watched them.
Tuukka Rask was tremendous vs. USA and held his own fairly well behind a horrendous Finnish team against Canada.
Don't worry, I did... and I was unimpressed personally. But that's just me. Actually, it isn't just me, it's most people who follow prospects for the 2005 draft.
I've watched Rask play 9 times now and only once I remember being dissappointed.....I don't take anything this Redline guy takes seriously....I would put more into something put together by a bunch of us.
Who was ahead of him last month? I know it wasn't Jack Johnson.
When did Finland play the U.S.?
Oh right, mixed him up with Schwarz.
They're very similar goalies... my bad.
Was it Benoit Pouliot?
It looks like Brule has been a constant #2 so far, at least through the 2004-2005 columns in USA Today.

What's wrong with that?
Kyle was right on about the tournament in Estonia. Kopitar was dominant and desrves his ranking (by most) as the #1 Euro propect this year. Bartulis was the best DF there, so very steady- a guy with ALL the tools but does not absolutely stand out with any one skill. Very, very reliable. Madsen flashes the tool box but underachieves- he just doesn't produce as well as he should. His on-ice reads are behind or outside of the play. He really needs to upgrade in the hockey sense department.
Agreed.. I have not been very impressed by the dane in the several games ive seen. He hasnÂ´t done much progress at all from last year.
Im really impressed by another dane, Kirill Starkov, who has been awesome. I havenÂ´t quite understood why so many are hot for Madsen, when Starkov has been better all along....
10th overall isn't so bad.
