    Is there anyone out there who can shed some light on what the top 100 prospects for the 2008 NHL draft might look like? i could probably make a list of notables from the QMJHL, but not the other CHL leagues or Europe.

    Here is a list of who I think fit into the top 100 from the QMJHL

    Kelsey Tessier
    Chris Doyle
    Yann Sauve
    Kevin Poulin
    Joel Champagne
    Allan Clow
    Jordan Southorn
    Mark Barberio
    Dannick Paquette
    Maxime Sauve
    Patrice Cormier
    Phillipe Cornet
    Alexandre Neron
    Jordan Caron
    Pascal Amyot
    Luke Adam
    Shaun Mortin boutin
    Samuel Morneau
    Philip Devos

    I am sure I am missing 3 or 4 but I think I have most of them. By the way, that list is in no particular order. Look forward to seeing what anyone might come up with for the top 100 overall

    2008 is a real strong draft for the Q like in 2003,1998 but probably with more depth with the maritime invasion

    Maybe watch for Phil McRae of the Knights. A lot of raw talent that might be harnessed for this upcoming season.

    Luke Adam?? Seriously? i really cannot see him being a top prospect for an nhl draft. I watched him play all year, and even though hes younger, mario kempe is ranked in the 50's for this years draft, and adam isnt even close to being as good as kempe. Maybe if he could skate he would have a good future, but if not i dont see it...

    This early, it's pretty useless and pretty much impossible to do a well educated and intelligent top 100. Things are going to change and players are just starting to show what they're able to do. It's alright to talk about the big names, maybe the top 30 even if most of them are pretty much going to fall off the face of the earth by draft day, but going down the list is just useless.

    Hey...we are not drafting tomorrow, but its not too early to make a preliminary list. You can be sure the scouting services out there will have a list of 100-200 for 08 as soon as this years NHL draft is complete, but I think its a great exercise to see how accurate we can be looking forward.

    I did consider Taylor Macdougall for my list....was kinda iffy as to whether he should be on it. Could have gone either way. theres no right or wrong here folks, but lets try to assemble a list. I am not a scout....thats why i am asking those of you out there who are, how this list would shape up.

    :)

    I'll take a stab at the Minnesota High Schools. There are seven skaters ranked in the top 100 and two goalies ranked in the top 10 of the CSB 2007 Final Rankings. There'll be less than that for 2008, but here are some good candidates (in no particular order)...

    D - Joe Gleason - Edina (UND)
    F - Jake Youso - International Falls (UMN)
    F - Jake Johnson - Duluth Denfield
    F - Adam Mueller - Roseville (MSUM)
    F - Cory Thorson - Robbinsdale Armstrong
    D - Drew Olson - Brainerd
    F - John O'Neill - Anoka
    F - Jared Festler - Little Falls (SCSU)
    F - Nick Larson - St. Thomas Academy
    F - Keegan Flaherty - Duluth East
    F - Tyler Landman - Roseau
    F - Mike Fink - Hopkins (UND)
    D - Aaron Ness - Roseau (UMN)

    Ness might be the most skilled of this bunch, but size will keep him out of the first round. The same goes for Gleason and Festler. Youso could be the highest one drafted. There's lots of skill here, but not much size.

    G - Aaron Crandell - St. Thomas Academy
    G - Brady Hjelle - International Falls (UMD)
    G - Joe Phillippi - Hill Murray
    G - Mike Lee - Roseau

    The first law of prospect evaluation is you don't hold a weak 16-year-old season against them when they're playing against 19 and 20 year olds. Look at Allard - he was crap last year and this year has played himself into a potential late round pick.

    I think the big 5 for the U.S. will be

    Hayes
    Wahl
    McRae
    Wilson
    Jenks

    I think all 5 will be top 15 picks as of right now, plus you can always add additionally a highschooler or 2, a USHL guy, two USNTD players, and a college guy or 2 for the first round, since that seems to be the norm as of late. obviously ballparking that big time, but that seems to be the way things have gone down as of the past few years. we still have a year to figure out who will fill those spots, but I wouldnt count out Bourque, Youso, and Comrie to rise for next season. IMO.

    velischek is a late 1990, hes 2009 eligible. hes playing nj colonials aaa midget major and for delbarton school. the colonials are supposedly a stcked midget team this year, and should have no problem making it to nationals, if all the players they have stay on the team. im pretty sure he plans to finish his junior year of high school next year, then head off to the ushl.

    matt white is eligible this year. he probably would be drafted alot higher, and we'd be talking about him alot more had he opted to go to the ushl.

    ryan bourque is a 1991, and he wont be a 1st rounder in 2009. 2nd to 6th, too early to tell.

    i think mcrae will have a big year, dont know if he'll end up in teh top 15 though. i think zach bogosian will be there though. i heard sam lofquist had a good year on defense with the ntdp. i think guys like saponari and czarnik could move with the coaching change and more offensive freedom. also mike cichy could also be thrown in the mix, but its unkown now where he'll end up.

    allard had a better rookie season than adam imo. but what im saying is that just because allard broke out the next year you think adam will. even though he is still young, how can you rank him as one of the top prospects for the nhl draft after those numbers.

    Is Alex Velischek the son of ex-NJ Devils defenseman Randy?

    Colin Wilson was the pivot on the top line for the NTDP with James van Riemsdyk and Jordan Schroeder during the IIHF U-18 WC. He tied with JvR for the tournament lead in scoring and finished 1pt behind JvR w/ 74pts on the season. He seems to be developing into a top 15 pick for the '08 draft.
