    I think he won't last to LA and Florida will snatch him, he's exactly what Florida can use and Keenan loves this type of a player on the ice and off the ice. It's about ranking a player and his NHL production, it's not about how good he played at a tournament. If you look at him all season he was a stud shutdown defenseman with legit NHL potential.

    I've always disagreed about the Staal and Kessel places, but I can definately see Backstrom going 2nd.

    That is a pretty big separation between Staal and Mueller. I'm very interested to see how these guys are 4 years from now.

    Assuming the top 5 guys go top 5(Johnson, Kessel, Toews, Staal and Backstrom) the bruins will get what's left over, which isn't that bad.

    Just my personal opinion but i can see washington taking Backstrom over Staal(assuming they the 2 guys left).

    IMO Phil Kessel should be #2 (if not #1) but I do like that Backstrom has risen up the boards. He's gonna be good.

    IMO Kessel has played below expectations this year... and should be 5 or 6....this ranking is one of the most accurate ive seen in a while.

    Nice. This kid is a spark plug. He's the only guy who didn't give up against Canada in that World Championship 11-0 blowout. He's gonna **** everyone at the U18 next year.

    how can 51 points in 39 games in his first year be "below expectations". I am not a Kessel fan but if some guy who was ranked before the season started, to go mid to late first round had a first season in college like that, there would be talk he should be first or 2nd no doubt.

    There will probably be 1 or 2 better guys then Kessel in the top 15 when all is said and done, but Kessel is as close to a sure thing which should make him #2(it's to hard to pass up on the defenseman).

    could be worse, my Islanders pick 7th. We have to hope there is 2 suprise picks so we get 1 of them:P

    Was wondering if any of the BCHL players made the list of 165? Lebler? Felde? Miller? Any of them?

    I think picking someone picking from 8-12 is going to pick up one of the top guys that slides down.
