    I think Bertram, Frazee, and Lehtonen will probably go higher. This rating on Skille is better then redlines love affair IMHO.

    I got the issue today.

    I'm glad The Hockey News did something for this draft class, even the draft might not be happening any time soon.

    Whats with Pouliot being #2 all the sudden?

    Well, he seems to be an almost universal top ten pick, so it's not outside the realm of possibility someone takes him a bit higher than many would expect. Skille's one of those guys that projects (IMO) to be a better pro than college player, so who knows?

    City once voted as F
    Price at #7 and Rask at #20?

    Korhonen #29, and Laakso doesn't even get into top 50?

    Weird to say the least..

    I think it's fair to have a weird list this year. Beyond the top-12 or so, it kind of gets like last year, where there are a plethora of choices and individual favourites could easily creep surprisingly high on a given team's list. If we ever have a draft, I imagine it'll go a bit off the map like that. :dunno:

    Seems like Mcardle and Stoa have dropped, at least on this on this list anyway.

    Latrendesse, Rask and Bertram are too low IMO.

    He's got the size of Handzus. He's got the hands of Havlat. He's got the effort of Brendl.

    So if he can correct the Brendl effort situation, the potential looks pretty good.
