    hey scoutman1,

    I know you watch alot of hockey. I'm wondering if you know of any players from this draft that have high-end offensive abilities but might not be slated to go ultra high - - say top 20 (a la Cogliano, Bergfors, etc).

    guys like the I would think are:

    Ryan Hillier (speed and playmaking with great vision)

    Benjamin Breault (great skater, stickhandler and good offensive skills)

    Cory Emmerton (surprise so far...could really rise up the draft sheets this year)

    Alexander Vasyunov (super offensive skills and could be a top 3 talent in the draft, but is really lazy and only turns it on in spurts...if improve work ethic then he could be an Alexander Mogilney)

    Derrick Brassard (speed, playmaking and scoring all in one package)

    I don't really know how Derick Brassard won't be a first rounder by the end of the year if he keeps playing like this. I mean he's fast, he's not THAT small, and has awesome vision. In the old NHL, I'd understand if he didn't make the cut, but with the new free-wheeling game, he should be a top 20 pick. Players like him will thrive. Think a faster PM Bouchard but with less passing skills.

    On a side note, does anyone have that link to Fedz awesome 2006 draft article or thread? He did a great job on his top 30, it was here on HFBoards.

    I'm hearing that he will easily be a top 15 pick and a probable top 10 selection. He's my darkhorse candidate to jump up into the top five or even four. Yes he is that good!

    Sheppard with another 3 points night against Quebec now has 23 points in 19 games. So much for that slow start, this guy is a beast. I still don't know if his shoulder is 100% since he has played through the injury.

    that link for the top 30 was awful, I almost took a dump in my pants after reading that filth. That took 6 months of research to come up with that drivel? Thank God you arent a scout for the Blackhawks,because you would land us some no name euro jobber instead of the bluechip north American kids who were so left out on this list its hilarious. Where is Mitera? Sauer? Sanguenetti? Forney? Nigel Williams? Dowzak? Foligno? Flynn? Erik Johnson at 14? hahahahahahahahahahahahahah
    The guy might go #2, no lower then 5. I might know my American players, but thank God that will look nothing like the 06' draft. I want my life back from reading that crap.

    here is my top 30 for the draft:

    1. Phil Kessel
    2. Michael Frolik
    3. Jonathan Toews
    4. Erik Johnson
    5. Peter Mueller
    6. James Sheppard
    7. Brian Little
    8. Jordan Staal
    9. Jesse Jouensuu
    10. Jonathan Bernier
    11. Nicklas Backstrom
    12. Tomas Marcinko
    13. Derrick Brassard
    14. Yuri Alexandrov
    15. Ben Maxwell
    16. Billy Sauer
    17. Mike Forney
    18. Jiri Tlusty
    19. Kyle Okposo
    20. Alexander Vasyunov
    21. Ivan Vishnevsky
    22. Joe Palmer
    23. Ben Shutron
    24. J.C Blanchard
    25. Mark Mitera
    26. Mathieu Carle
    27. Niko Toivenen
    28. Igor Makarov
    29. Ryan Hillier
    30. Nick Foligno
     



  12. I notice Bernier is rated really high.

    This is an open-ended question for everyone: Does anyone think NHL teams may not draft goalies in the top 10 as often as before?

    I agree with the idea that the 2006 crop is being very underrated thus far. The USHL is set to have a big draft year- I wouldn't be surprised to see a team reach on a couple guys out of there early.

    If anything, this will be the year that the USHL finally begins making up lost time on the CHL. Also watch out for Tier II kids- Cogliano's recent success is another major boost for leagues like the OPJHL and BCHL.

    The BCHL has Zajac and Chucko coming out, although I think Zajac ended up in college, they were both first round picks

    Now you know how everyone feels after seeing your post. Did you even bother to check the date?

    Maybe you'd like to post your list so we can all be dicks and trash you.

    That link was to a post from last Feb, obviously things change in 9 months. Anyway, being as though you're so critical, where's your list?

    You sure are very well informed. I won't reiterate what the others have said about the date of the post because then you'd seem like less of an idiot.

    No Ty Wishart?

    I'd have Wishart as a lock for the first round, and it wouldn't surprise me if he pushes the top-10 at the end of the year. 6'5", mobile, strong outlet passer, and doesn't mind the rough stuff. +20 after 18 games on a team where no other defender is better than +6. Plus a strong showing for U-18 Team Canada this summer from all accounts.

    I'd be absolutely shocked if Maxwell goes ahead of him.

    I heard he is alot like Coburn, big, strong but not overly physical as he should be.

    He's not Derian Hatcher, but he's pretty physical from what I've seen. Has had a couple fights already and should finish up with well over 100 PIM this year.

    But yeah, for the most part I'd say he's pretty similar to Coburn. And I'd say that's mostly a positive thing.

    i believe derrick brassard broke his arm or something, and he will be out for awhile. hopefully when he comes back he'll keep playing the way he has been, cause dummondville certainly needs him.
