    I just did a feature on Erik Johnson.

    I would not be surprised to see a similar situation in 2006 as what occured in 2005 (where it came down to Bobby Ryan and Jack Johnson). 2006, the second and third picks could come down to either a big forward (Jonathan Toews) or a physical defenceman (Erik J). It is still a long time away, however.

    Frolik at 4th now? I know it is just one group's opinion, but what happened in the last month to drop him from 2nd to 4th?

    Who's to say he did anything to drop? Maybe it's more the case that the other players rose, while he stayed the course.

    This is the exact same ranking they had last month.

    i highly doubt forney is chosen before okposo. i think okposo should be at 10, hes having a great year.

    nigel williams has skyrocketed in the last 1.5 years. i know mckeens is real high on him too. anyone think he can overtake erik johnson in the next 6 months as the first defenseman drafted? does anyone think sanguinetti can overtake williams?

    I ll bet Forney indeed does get drafted in front of Kyle. And I have watched both play many times over the past few years.

    Williams is not even close to Erick Johnson. Sanguinetti will go before Williams.

    There is no way Nigel Williams will overtake Erik Johnson. Nigel's ranking is more a result of his size and potential, although he does have good skill. Erik is in a class by himself really. Nigel has a lot to learn defensively and has some catching up to do skill wise, to catch Johnson, and that will take more than one season.

    I've only seen Johnson once all year, so I look forward to watching him play at the WJC's...but in the game I did see of his, I really came away questioning his conditioning and offensive upside.

    I love the size, skating, and oooh those monsterous open ice hits, but still he has a long way to go before I mention him in the same breathe as Kessel, Frolik, and Toews.


    Hopefully he proves me wrong at the WJC's.

    Nigel Williams on the other hand was extremely impressive, but is definitley more raw at this point. I think both deserve top 10 consideration along with Saguinetti.
