    Steblick, it doesn't seem that we can send you PM... well anyway, I wanted to know if you had any infos on Jasmin-Riel. He doesn't appear to be in the CSB rankings... Is he available or not at all? Thanks.

    Why wouldn't he be eligible? Only players enetering their first possible draft year have to opt in.

    I know for a fact Joe Barnes is definitely out.

    If he opted in, he'd probably be a 3rd, maybe 4th round selection. It's a shame, but thats the way things go some years. This season he was still recovering from a horrific neck injury suffered last year and played on one of the worst teams in CHL history. I think next year if he has a strong year and he's either traded or Saskatoon improves, he could definitely be a mid to late 1st round pick.

    I would easily take him over 40-50 guys ranked ahead of him on the CSB list.

    Thanks for the list, I've been looking for something like this.

    Ok so that's one thing, thanks (I thought the fact he wasn't playing hockey anymore could have made him unavailable for the draft, for whatever reason). Now, do you think a team will (or may) take a chance on him?

    Why would David Krejci opt out, he had an amazing year in the Czech league and was one of my favorites going into the draft.

    Dannick Jasmin-Riel have quitted his team in January and have not play hockey since.
    He seems like he's retired from competition hockey

    Yandle's opt out makes sense. He is only a junior in HS and is eligible this year by a matter of days...he was the youngest player on the whole NA rankings, so he can go back to Cushing as a senior and (hopefully) have an even better year, maybe get stronger etc., and not lose any ground because he will still be young enough to pretty much be in next years draft as normal. It also might scare off some teams knowing that he is at least 5 years off from the pros if he stays in school, so the extra year will make him that much closer to joining whatever team has their eye on him, hopefully making him less of a long-term project, and the normal incoming college draft pick.
