Comments: This is not a mock draft this is my rankings of the 07 eligable prospects. All comments are welcome. I live in europe (Sweden) most of the year, but I go to Canada a few times a year, I also have friends who go reguarly to WHL,NCAA and OHL games and I watch live streams from the QMJHL. I watched the U20 live. My blind spot is the USHL i can only go on reports here, so the players from this league are probably ranked to low. Well ,enjoy. 1.Kyle Turris C Kyle is a creative center with decent backchecking skills if he was 20 puonds heavier and played in the WHL he would be the clear cut No1 IMO. Turris is fast With great shot. He has the higest potential in the draft . 2.James Van Riemsdyk LW JVR is big powerfull winger with nice hands and skating, I think he is missing a meanstreak though, the safest of the top 3 picks will at worst be a great 3rd liner. 3.Pat Kane RW Best offensive player in the draft and was no1 on my list for a very long time. The things missing from Pats game is backchecking and size,if he can improve those hell be a great player. 4.Alexei Cherepanov RW Goalscorer, not extremly fast or powerful but get the job done end is proven against men. Acurrate shot, but it could use some power. 5.Karl Alzner D Great Allround D-man, i wish he was more physical, but gets the job done. 6.Jakub Voracek RW Strong allround forward, dont think hell ever be more than a 2:nd liner though. 7.Keaton Ellerby D Big guy with nice offensive instincts and good skating, needs to add muscle and use his size better. 8.Sam Gagner C Great playmaker, good hockey sence but lacks that top-end potential. Second line upside. 9.Logan Couture C Nice skillset and a great character guy, unlucky with injuries this year, needs to improve his skaing. 10.Bill Sweatt W Fastest player in the draft, has the ability to make plays at high speed, but may lack skill to be a top six player. 11.Lars Eller C/LW He looks like Zetterberg in swedish J20, good playmaker, needs to be improve his shot, Could become the steal of this draft if he falls into the bottom half of the first round. 12.Mikael Backlund C Troubled by injuries but, hes a fast physical offensive player, needs to stay healthy. 13.Ryan McDonagh D Strong allround d-man 14.Angelo Esposito C Great speed and skill level but he is inconsistent. Could become the best player from this draft, but might as well bust. High risk pick. 15.Zach Hamill C Perimeter offensive player, is good defensevly but needs to get his nose dirty. 16.Sergei Korostin RW Great skater, with a nice shot, and a nice set of one on one moves, still hasnt found the defensive zone though. A bit of a floater otherwise a top 10 talent in this draft. 17.Brett MacLean LW Good size, shot and works hard, needs to improve his skating. 18.Tomas Hickey D Smoothskating offensive d-man, nice outlet passes. 19.Simon Hjalmarsson W Goalscorer with nice work etic, a little small and loses to many puck battles for my liking. A poor mans HÃ¥kan Loob. 20.Dana Tyrell LW Works like a dog every shift, decent hands, If he was 6'2 he would be a top 5 pick. 21.David Perron RW Strong offensive player, some what of a late bloomer nice potential though. Very good at protecting the puck njedds to improve his physical skill (strenght and spped). 22.Colton Gilles C/D Big, fast and a big hitter. Missing some offensive instincts and is somewaht of a cheap shot artist. 23.Logan MacMillan C Good allround center, needs to get stronger and faster, safe pick. 24.Maxim Mayorov LW Big fast nice hands, needs to work harder and use his size, nice upside. 25.Oskar MÃ¶ller RW Hardworking winger whoo gets the job done, has a great shot and decent playmaking skills. Not sure if he can translate his skill to higher levels though, 26.Nick Petrecki D Mean defenseman with good skatind and a big shot, lacks hockeysense though. 27.James O'brien C Big allround center needs to use his size more. somewhat raw overall, but nice upside. 28.Keven Vellieux C Homongus center with a good skill level and a nice shot. Looked spectacular int the prospects game, but is inconsistent. High risk pick ,needs to improve skating consisntsy. 29.Akim Aliu W Big, fast, mean and talented. Character issues and bad numbers makes you a bit nervous. 30.Joakim Andersson C Best 2-way player in the draft ,strong and hasa good work etic. The risk is he never becomes more than a 4th center whos good at killing penalties, at best hes a 2-way 2nd liner or an elite 3:rd liner. Honorable mentions. Riley Nash, Tommy Cross, Brandon Sutter, Kevin Shattenkirk,Luca Cunti. Hey hope you like it.
