    This is what I see so far...

    Games played-Goals-Assists-Points-PIM's
    1. RW Bobby Ryan 65-37-52-89-51 Owen Sound Attack OHL
    6'1 224 Righthanded shot. Been hovering at #4 all year. Think he will go top 5.

    2. RW Guillaume Latendresse 53-24-25-49-66 Drummondville Voltigeurs QMJHL
    6'2 222 Lefthanded shot. Once Top 5 guy-slow to return from injury. Big upside.

    3. LW Kendal McArdle 70-37-37-74-122 Moose Jaw Warriors WHL
    5'11 195 Lefthanded shot. Appropriately on the warriors-he is one!

    4. RW/C Alex Bourret 65-22-41-63-94 Lewiston Maineiacs QMJHL
    5'10 224 Lefthanded shot. Might go higher. Versatile.

    5. RW Devin Segtouchi 69-33-31-64-34 Saskatoon Blades WHL
    5'11 180 Right handed. I have him a bit lower than most because of size and streakiness.

    6. RW Nicklas Bergfors 21-18-16-34-25 Sodertalje Sweden
    I have him a bit lower than some.

    7. W Slava Trukhno 64-25-34-59-57 PEI Rockets QMJHL
    6'1 196 Lefthanded shot. Need more stats but seems to be a "riser."

    8. RW Michael Blunden 61-22-19-41-75 Erie Otters OHL
    Aggressive wing I like alot. Game fits the NHL.

    9. W Andrew Cogliano 49-36-66-102-33 St. Mike's Buzzers Ontario Tier 2
    Smallish size. Highly skilled Frequent mention.

    10. Wacey Rabbit 70-22-45-67-70 Saskatoon Blades WHL
    5'10 160 Lefthanded shot. Little guy who may get even better.

    Who did I leave out?

    Please fill in any stats not listed-thanks!

    Yep. Those numbers are so high because Cogliano was playing with the St. Mike's Buzzers in tier two while waiting to go to Michigan next season.

    Cogliano's team is the St. Mike's Buzzers in the OPJHL (Ontario tier two, junior A), Truknho was with the PEI Rocket in the QMJHL, and Bergfors played for Sodertalje in the SEL.

    No, I don't have anything to say about the list beyond Bobby Ryan, as he's the only one I've seen. But the first pick looks alright to me.

    I've seen Cogliano play about 5 times and I definitely wouldn't spend a first round pick on him. Although he impressed at the U18s I definitely think he needs to be seen against better competition. He has elite elite skating, but in my opinion that's about it. He's not a great puckhandler or playmaker and makes some stupid plays out there. He also has a weak shot and doesn't seem to be able to finish many chances he had, I watched a game where he had about 8 point blank opportunities and only finished on one. His speed allows him to dominate Junior A but I see him having problems scoring against better competition.

    Ryan is a monster, I would take him 2nd overall if I was picking.

    He is actually 6'0 185 as listed at the WHL website. I am also not so sure Setoguchi is really that streaky. During his one slump this season he was playing with an injury, or at least thats what I heard.

    I'm surprised to see you put Rabbit at #10. I think if he were a few inches taller he'd be in the 7-10 range, but since he is only 5'10 I think he would be closer to 15-20.

    Good comments. Rating him at #9 winger probably makes him a 2nd rounder. His level of competition is certainly a question too. Still adding strength is a somewhat natural progression. Usually, you can't add talent.

    Radek Smolenak is 6'3", popped 32 goals, and looked terrific at the prospects' game. Wish I'd seen more of him, but I'd certainly have him ahead of Rabbit and probably Blunden. I don't know if Rabbit would be in my top 20 on this list.

    Props for including Rabbit, I see him as this year's Liam Reddox... he might make a tremendous steal.

    6'3 190 Lefthanded shot. It looks like you can make a case for him.

    I can see why. Blunden is a guy I think will do very well. His grit translates to the NHL. Rabbit is just a playmaker.

    There's a prospect named Wacey Rabbit? Whichever GM drafts him so has to call his name with an Elmer Fudd voice.

    He's Inuit. The Rangers had a kid try out named Robin Big Snake.

    The stats you have for Latendresse are not up to date (can't always depend on HockeyDB!)... They are:

    65gm 29g 49a 78pts 76pim

    Same goes for Bourret:

    65gm 31g 55a 86pts 172pim

    Skille was included as a center, rather than a winger.

    I don't know if you were actually watching Cogliano or not, but for one he is not a winger - he is a centre. The second, is he has been dominating the league all year and has been even playing better in the playoffs. In the playoffs he has been dominating against a lot of players going to the NCAA next year. He is an elite skater, passer, and can distribute the puck well. He is not a pure goal scorer but has picked that up scoring 19 goals in 18 games. One nock on him during the regular season was that he didn't like the physical game, but in the playoffs that has been changing where he is winning almost every battle he engages and has been engaging with smarts, using angles very well. He has been the most dominate player in the playoffs by far and really make St. Mike's go.

    Yeah but from the game I saw , he was playing RW.Isn't Ryan Stoa a center?? I think Skille should be listed as a winger , I'm sure many will agree with me here.

    I remember him from Juniors. I was hoping the Flyers would draft him.
