    Overrated---Andrew Ladd

    I love the guy, but he's not good enough to warrant a #2 ranking by CSB. I can see him going in the 21-26 range, but definitely not that high.

    Underrated---i dunno. there are usually few prospects who are underrated going into drafts.

    Redline just moved him up to #12 overall. Looks like CSS isn't alone in their projection of him.

    I agree with Green and Schwarz. Not sure about Schremp, I sort of get the impression he's been getting a bit more attention than he deserves.

    I have to admit, I think Marek Schwartz is the most overrated. Not that he's any good, but he didn't strike me as being a top 10 draft prospect in the WJC's. I thought Montoya, on the other hand, was the most underrated player in that tournament from what I saw of him (Lepisto be damned!).

    Schremp is my pick for underrated, everyone seems to like his talent but his attitude is extremely overplayed.

    For a kid who has the skill to be a top 3 pick I've seen him fall out of the top 10 way too often.

    I've only seen him three times, but Michael Funk struck me as someone who had all the tools to be a top 4 NHL defenseman. Good size (needs to fill out, though), skating, puck moving and decision making. CSS rated he and Fistric both in the mid 20s, and assuming Fistric is rated appropriately, I think Funk should be rated higher.

    With Chipchura appearing in so many top ten lists, I'll nominate him.

    Underrated I would say Mark Tobin who is 91 in NA. The team who will draft him will get a great player

    Scouts are there for Bertram.

    Raymond wasn't a 1st or 2nd All-Star team selection.

    Never even heard of this kid.

    Overated: Ovechkin (just a bit, best talent in awhile but he cant single handily turn Pittsburg around, just warning you Pen fans.) I also think Wolski gets to much press, he's soft,
    Underated: Schremp, Schwarz (could be Richter), Lisin,O'Neil, Carl Soderburg, T.J. Hensick, Montoya...goaltending is a big head game, and he's got one of the best heads on any goaltender.BRUCCCEE GRAHM ...he rocks.
