    It's kind of weird that they have Ellerby up three so high when they have almost no scouting on him and what they do have doesn't sound overly impressive.

    interesting rankings for sure, but i think you're going to see Ellerby and Kane rising substantially in ISS's next rankings, and I'd be shocked if they still have Couture first overall when they release their next list.

    Only list I've seen with Kane and Gagner in the top ten, and IMO it's deserved given their OHL performances thus far.

    Ellerby has a package that many scouts love - great size, skating, potential to dominate games as he fills out - he's pretty much a lock to be a top ten selection IMO unless his game really drops off.

    Personally I think Couture is too low, but being from the Ottawa area I may be a little biased - we'll see how he looks when he comes back from injury.

    Last season and the year before watching Ellerby I always thought he had top ten potential, but I have to say that number 2 for him right now is quite shocking.

    I noticed Palushaj was putting up decent numbers, but wasn't sure where he'd land on this list.

    Usually McKeen's comes out with a top 60 or 120, not 30. Hopefully there's still more to come.

    Well, as compared to 2003, it is nowhere close. 2004 & 2005 had their top end talent ('04 Ovechkin & Malkin, but then it tails off, and '05 Crosby and again tails off) while this year it is quite the opposite. There is very little top end talent (as of now), but the kids who would go 10-15 in any other draft, there are probably 20 guys who may end up there this season.

    I think that Palushaj drops to the 2nd. I just don't see him as a 1st round player. And I really like him.

    The whole first round right now is filled with guys who'd go 5-15 in a normal draft. That's my early opinion.

    My top ten is filled with guys who'd go 5-10 in a normal draft. Very few, with the exception of maybe Couture (without the injury) and Esposito would go in the top five. Gagner is making a push right now...

    Guys like Petrecki, Backlund, Alzner, etc. would all go top 5-10, IMO, in other drafts as well as the guys you've listed.

    The funny thing with Palushaj is that I can see him being taken top 15 overall if someone falls in love with him. And I think it's fairly probable to happen for some reason. But I wouldn't take him in the first yet.

    Roman Bashkirov is saying "hi" to jakub voracek (pay attention to "plus-minus"). Soon Ruslan Bashkirov will say the same:yo:

    Can anyone tell me where they rank Brandon Sutter now. They had him at 5th in their last one which I thought was too high (10-20 seems about right).

    Leclerc is good, but had a rough start to the season, numbers aren't good because the Hurricanes PK is brutal.

    But ya, he is good,in the top 5 of goalies for sure, heck I'd say Top 3.

    shows you how far tristin llewellyn has dropped in their minds. if i remember correctly he was in their top 10 last list they made, now hes not in the top 30. as i thought, blum has risen from 60th to 12th, i still think he has a shot to go higher then petrecki too.

    i think that at least one defenseman from this years ntdp team will go last 1st also. theres some good solid defensemen like shattenkirk, ruth, lavin, and cole. if size is overlooked fairchild could go very high too.

    Talking about defensemen, no Katic either--rated higher than Cohen, Shattenkirk and Llewellyn by most "experts" and very close to Petricki except a totaly differet player, small, quick, skilled offensively.

    even if the leafs finish last place they will draft the wrong player.leafs should trade the pick.
