    I would have it more like:

    1. Sidney Crosby. F Rimouski

    2. Gilbert Brule. F Vancouver

    3. Vitaly Anikeenko. D Lokomotive 88

    4. Guillaume Latendresse. F Drummondville

    5. Jack Johnson. D US NTDP U17
    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    6. Jakub Vojta. D HC Sparta Praha

    7. Jack Skille. F U17 NTDP

    8. Matt Lashoff. D Kitchener

    9. Ryan Mior. G PEI

    10. Bobby Ryan. F Owen Sound.

    I would have Daniel Bertram at 5 but he is taking the NCAA route which wouldn't make him eligable till 2006 so I left him off of it, same goes for Andrew Cogliano.

    Watch out for Ryan Mior over Price for 1st goalie taken in the draft, also Jeff Frazee for the USNTDP 17 team could be a better prospect than Price as well.

    I think wes oneill will be in the top 5 if he of course decides not to opt in this year. I just think he will wait another year so he can keep his Notre Dame eligibility and maybe challenge for that number 2 spot behind Sydney Crosby.

    I have seen O'Neil play and IMO he does not have the talent to challenge for 2nd overall in this draft with the likes of Brule, Anikeenko, Latendresse, Johnson, Kindl, Vojta, etc

    I think you guys are way too early on thinking about the 2005 draft.Probably 1/2 the guys you are mentioning will slip to 3rd round or later and I see virtually no europeans on your lists.Don't try to poredict a 2005 draft group based on a few guys you have seen in juniors.

    few guys I have seen. I have seen almost every 87 born player in North America play in tournaments, and I have seen many Euro players for this draft and have people I know and respect who know their hockey well in europe who give me info as well. This is a prospects board, I gave my thoughts and if you don't like them well then don't read it but I am going to contineu to predict since that is what I do. People are still talking about Kovalchuk here but he is not a prospect anymore why don't you go waste their time.

    The point I was making was that alot of people here are not even sure who the top 10 in the 2004 draft will be and you guys are talking about 2005.While you are at it you might as well predict the top 10 in the 2010 draft.I am sure there is some 11 year old out there just tearing up the pee-wee league. :rolleyes:

    Thing is these guys are playing CHL and NCAA now and for the USNTDP. This is why people don't know about players because people like you do not want these things posted. This way people can watch these players and give their imput on them as well. This draft is only next year so I think it is valid to talk about this subject. If you don'tlike it don't read it simple as that.

    I think i speak for alot of people when I say who cares how well a 16 year-old is doing right now.There are probably thousands of situations between now and 2005 (which is actually 2 years away) that will affect where these guys will go in the draft.For all we know their will not even be a draft in 2005.I think that predicting where a 16 year old kid will go in a draft that won't be held for another 21 months is a pure guess.Alot of "experts" will have a hard enough time predicting the 2004 draft.I just think you guys should take it 1 year at a time and not try to "predict" what kids may help your teams 6 years down the road.

    Look at the top of the page. This site is Hockey's Future. The future of hockey doesn't start at 17 years old. That's why people talk about the 2005 draft.

    Why would you give that stupid role eyes smilie to moosefan, he's one of the most respected and intelligent posters here. I find it very nice that he is able to provide all this information on these kids that are so young.

    Kindl

    Hello moosefan,
    Czech D Jakub Kindl is much better player than Jakub Vojta and for me sure Top Ten pick. Maybe the best offensive D at World U-18 Cup in August in Czech republic and Slovakia as a underager!
    Great size, very good skater , very poised, excellent skills.
    Vojta is very good prospects but Kindl is much much better.

    moosefan: you seem to be pretty high on U.S. born prospects. Do you get to see American born players very often, or is your information gained through other sources? Thanks for the insight.

    I get to see most of them, it is just that in these next two draft the USA is having really strong crops of players.

    Tom Fritsche, younger brother of Dan Fritsche, He plays for the us U18. I have watched him play some Div 1 games and so far he looks like the best player on the team. He has the option to go in the 2005 or 2006. Has anyone else heard of him

    yes I seen him play...he played last year for the US NTDP U17 team. He is a great player I just think that these drafts are so talented that it can cause a guy like him to fall in these drafts. Who knows by that time he could be a top 5 pick though, just right now I feel the guys I have listed are ahead of him so far.

    Here's an article on him:

    It looks like he wants to attend Ohio State.

    Benjamin Brealt is a fantastic 88-born player. He's currently player for the Collège Charles-LeMoyne Riverains, not Notre Dame. I don't know the others, but I think Breault can easily go first overall, in 3 years...
