    Good top 50, I would personally have Carl Sneep in my top 50, but thats the biggest difference we'd have in our lists.

    Very good list!

    Just a question...

    Why are you that high on Sheppard?

    Sheppard has no flaws in his game. His skating ain't perfect but no way is he slow. He's big, a really good playmaker and he has good positioning on the pp. He really impressed me in the prospects game. He's sure a top 10 talent in this draft. If a team picks him after the top 10, they're going to make a huge steal.

    Where are John Armstrong and Theo Peckham?

    Armstrong is 49th.

    I don't like Peckham at all, I wouldn't even rank him in my top 100. He's a good agitator/goon...but no thank you, personally i think he'll go very late during draft day.

    If an Alexander Radulov can go 15th in a weak 2004 draft, a Frolik who hasn't done much in a year and half most certainly can fall and fall alot.

    You obviously don't know very much about him.

    I guarantee he goes top 50.

    Have you seen Frolik actually play? Or are you just going by what you read?

    Frolik might fall slightly, but not a chance he will fall past 14th.

    I've seen him at the WJC in North Dakota, the U-18 in the Czech Republic and the WJC in Vancouver. Basically every time TSN showed a game with the Czechs involved.

    With every viewing I have been less and less impressed with Frolik and feel he was at his peak as a 16 year old at the North Dakota WJC. That's worrisome that he hasn't come anywhere near that level since then. I am not the only one who feels the same way on these boards.

    I don't see how it's a lock he will be a top 14 pick. How exactly do we know if the Canucks like Frolik or not?

    Every year there is always a highly touted prospect who was considered a ''lock'' to be a top 15 pick who falls for various reasons, this year it could very well be Frolik.

    That said, if he is indeed coming to the Q next year that definitely will help him out.

    Good skill set but brains are a concern. From what I seen he isn't the sharpest tool in the shed. In terms of raw ability he is fast, strong and should be putting up more points.

    Your thoughts on Berglund, and where have you seen him play?

    Are you talking about the same guy?

    Peckham is a defensive defenceman all the way and is anything but fast, lead footed would be a more accurate description.
    But he's actually smart positionally and at reading the play, which is why he is still effective in his own zone.

    Peckham is a guy who GM's/scouts will have very different opinions on, similiar to what were seeing in this thread. Some might have him top 50, others might not think much of him at all.

    Jason is right in the sense that Theo really really improved his skating and movement this year.
