    In the mid-late 1st round? (15-25)

    Which good forwards should be available there?

    I thought Brassard... but are there any others (wingers if possible)

    I honestly think brassard will be gone before 15-25..

    anyways,

    Kyle okposo- from the USHL could be in there, he might even go higher though.

    Mike Forney from Minnesota high school league, bit tall 6"3 winger

    Jesse Jonnesu (Sp)- Finland

    Corey Emmerton from the OHL

    I know a couple kids from Russia/Czech could go mid/late 1st round that are forwards.

    A couple more:

    Chris Stewart (OHL) has been moving up the charts and could sneak into the 1st round. He plays RW and is 6'2 227lbs.

    Ben Maxwell (WHL)

    Jiri Tlusty (Cze) should go mid-1st while David Kveton (Cze) is a late 1st or early 2nd round pick.

    There are 3 Russian players (Zharkov, Vasyunov and Makarov) but I will be surprised if any go in the 1st round because of the lack of a transfer agreement.

    Brassard is top 10.

    Chris D Nailed it on three of them IMO.

    Kyle Okposo, is absolutely thriving in an underated USHL. It's a tough league to score in, and he's doing it night in night out and is a physical hard working up and down winger.

    Michael Forney has arguably the best finishing touch in the draft. Risky pick, but huge reward out of this lanky bullish finisher.

    Jesse Joensuu, huge upside, we'll see if he rises up with a good WJC's but right now teams are taking him around 15 likely because of his upside.


    Best defenseman in this range.... Nigel Williams of the USNTDP. Soo much skilll in a 6-5 220 frame.

    Thanks for everyone for your answer.

    Just to mention something, it's not for the Habs, it's for a FHL sim league that I'll be drafting 20th so...
