    Who do you guys think of the last two draft classes could be gone now in the first round?

    What I mean is which players of the later rounds showed that they are 1st round material!

    Ryan Stoa, Kris Letang, and Brendan Mikkelson I would throw out there as well.

    I can't comment for all teams for 2006 but for the Red Wings I truely think Emmerton and Mursak would go between 20-30 overall if the draft was to take place tomorow.

    As for the 2005, guys like Stastny are Latendresse are very good picks that would go in the 1st round for sure.

    The first round should be 100 picks long so that everyone's homer prospects can be accommodated. :D

    Wow, the only one I didn't draft in my fantasy league on that league is Vlasic. I hope you are right! :handclap: ;)

    Although I am not cheering for a team that hasn't won a Cup since the Beatles recorded Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, I think according to what I read that Stralman has the upside of a first rounder in 2005. He is apparently ranked no.2 between Lidstrom and Kronwall as a swedish defensive prospect. Already one of the best D in the SEL league despite his age.

    And what have read and heard is --he is:
    a 6' 180# slow Dman who is not physical and has done well in the 2nd div in the SEL. even at HF he is considered at best a 3-4 dman .. that is not a 1st rd draft pick -- is it the sme person?

    what you have to realize is that very many HF player profiles do not get updated very often, especially the lesser known prospects. Right now, Stralman leads the SEL in ice time I believe. Not division 2, the SEL. I have also seen the stuff Kaftka said around other parts of the boards aswell.

    For sure...What about Kris Russell? Would the "new NHL" make him a first round pick?

    This year he has been touted by many as the best defenceman on the best team in the first division of the SEL. He has drawn comparisons to Lidstrom but I won't go that far. Any player thats draws comparisons to Lidstrom has 1st round potential in my books.

    He is currently ranking 15th in points for defensman in the Elitserien SEL league. No.1 of his team (Timrå).

    I haven't seen him play, but Jesse Joensuu, in addition to being huge, has stats that are on pace to be on par or better than every other Finnish first rounder over the past several years in the season following their draft. This includes guys like Tukonen, Nokelainen and Ruutu.

    The knock on him has been his skating. Has this improved? I think that it will be what makes or breaks him in the NHL.

    Yes.

    And his past two seasons would make him a first round.
