    2005: Risto Korhonen, D
    2006: Jonas Enlund, F and Robert Nyholm, F

    I think you can add Tom Wandell to the 2004 players. He made the Swedish U18 WJC-team instead of Sundström (ranked #8 on the list). Those three btw (Bergfors, Sundström, Wandell) are three to watch in the future.

    2006
    Oskar Johansson
    Tony Lagerström

    .. are two players that I imagine would make a top 20 ranking easily at this point, although it is still very early to tell :)

    You mean 2005 right?

    cvandenberg - Czech Republic seems very strong with a lot of guys on those lists. Are they really deeper than the other countries or do you just see a lot of Czech hockey?

    Joensuu and Osala is going to be an interesting duo to watch.

    I think Alexei Yemelin should start appearing on everyone's 2004 rankings. He is currently Russia's No.1 U18 DF and seems to be getting better with each tournament. I have him in the late 1st round.

    based on taped viewings of every slovak tender to ever play. Very outlandish statement.

    Magnus Svanberg was awarded best defenseman in that tournament born 88 with national teams from Sweden, Finland, Norway and Denmark. He has great size as well.

    Gawlik will hopefully be drafted 2005 in the first round....

    Gawlik scored in this week for U-18 (friendly matches against Austria and Switzerland):

    GER - AUT = 5:4 :yo: goals for Germany: Pietta (Dietrich), Schöbel (Schietzold, Gawlik), Pietta (Wilhelm, Ondruschka), Ondruschka (Dietrich, Gogulla), Gawlik (Schöbel, Cespiva)

    Nice to us beating the Austrians. :bow: :bow:
    Gawlik is a great German prospect, I just hope he gets the necessary playing time he needs in the DEL, in which case he could be a late first rounder.
    I think Pietta is not that far behind Gawlik and should be a 2nd or 3rd rounder.
    Maybe the two should move to NA and play a couple of years CHL or OHL. I think that would help their development imensly

    Do you heard of Andrei Kastsitsyn's brother, Siarhei ? If yes, how he's doing ? I think he will be elegible in 2005 and he did a nice job with Belarus in the last WJC

    I think that Jesse Joensuu is easily first european player this 2006 draft. He is 2 or 3 month older than Vasyunov and playing U-18 WJC. Vasyunov is playing same time U-16 russian team. I think Jesse is best player of the world his age. It´s not the easy thing get finnish U-18 team and Jesse is one of the best players that team too. Last 2 pre-game against Sweden Jesse is got 1+2 pts.

    Here is the scores those 2 match:

    3.4.2004

    Finland U18 - Sweden U18 4-1 (0-1,3-0,1-0)

    03.34 Tom Wandell 0-1
    20.28 Petteri Wirtanen 1-1 (Jesse Joensuu)
    26.15 Risto Korhonen 2-1 (Jarmo Jokila,Mikko Alikoski) YV VoM
    30.08 Jesse Joensuu 3-1 (Jarmo Jokila,Teemu Laakso) YV
    40.44 Mikko Alikoski 4-1 (Lauri Tukonen)

    FIN Karri Rämö 6+8+16=30
    SWE Magnus Ã…kerlund 8+18+5=31

    4.4.2004

    Finland U18 - Sweden U18 2-2 (0-1, 1-1, 1-0)

    09.25 0-1 Oscar Sundh (Fredrik Näslund)
    23.44 1-1 Petteri Wirtanen (Jesse Joensuu)
    29.25 1-2 Oscar Sundh (Sebastian Carlsson, Fredrik Näslund)
    50.54 2-2 Risto Korhonen (Jarmo Jokila, Vesa Kulmala) YV

    FIN Karri Rämö 5+11+6=22
    SWE Daniel Larsson 11+5+6=22

    Looks to be a good draft for defenseman, how about from the North American Side? (I just know the top forwards from N.A)

    Yep- Pietta and Thomas Pielman might even be better prospects than Gawlick, who's rather small. Pietta and Pielman were top scorers for Germany at the Div. 2 U18s as 87 birthdates.

    A great 87 team from Germany that should easily challenge the big 7 hockey nations in that age group.

    Michael Frolik

    The best Czech player eligible for the 2006 draft is definitelly Michael Frolik. This guy is amazing. He is 88 born and will play on the U-18 WJC in Minsk with the 86 born now....

    Skokan

    Who is Skokan on U17 Slovak team. As far as I know the only Skokan on U17 Slovak team was a 1988 born forward. Do you mean Kovac?
