As a way of helping us get through the last slow hours before the draft- and to get us talking about some fresh names- I suggest listing our favourite prospects who have never been ranked by CSS either in their mid-term or final rankings. I'll start. Hopefully others will add more names. (I don't know a lot about these guys, but I did come across them in my web surfing over the season and was intrigued by their numbers). Sakari Salminen F 5'10" 145 27 19-24-43 +4 30 pim This '88 born midget has passed through the draft once. He played for Assat in the Finnish Under 20 league. Yes he's very light, but those are some great numbers. Miro Rahkola D 6'0" 176 38 12-7-19 -6 22 pim A late '88 who also played for Assat's Under 20 team. He has decent size and his offensive production is solid, I especially like the fact he scored 12 goals in 38 games. Emmanuel Boudreau D 5'10" 172 37 1-20-21 +10 20 pim A true '89, played for Rimouski. Was injured for part of the season (or so I gather) and he's small. Will be interesting to see what kind of numbers he puts up next season. Payton Liske LW 6'4" 206 15 8-2-10 -3 11 pim A late '88 who played for Saint John in the QMJHL. His numbers make me curious. Obviously he missed most of the season. His points-per-game avg is ok and he is a big guy. Zybnek Hampl F 6'1" 185 40 22-37-59 +2 12 pim This '88 born forward has passed thorugh the draft once. Was one of the top scorers in the Czech Under 20 league. Also scored 7 points in 5 games in the playoffs.
