    At or near the top especially considering that many of teams who have been ranked above them will be graduating alot of their top prospects this season.

    Toews line gave Minnesota (a team with 8 players drafted in the first two rounds) fits last weekend. Even when the points don't come for this kid everything else does. I'm frankly suprised he didn't jump this year.

    Skille another nice player no doubt. Wisconsin really lacks an offensive punch without him in the lineup.

    I tend to think Toews game is a little more complete right now but I haven't seen as much of Skille (I'm a Sioux fan and a little biased). How far they both go will be interesting.

    I'm still mad you guys picked Jan-Mikael Juutiliainen so late in the last draft.

    I guess I really didn't answer the question. If I could take one player out of college hockey for my NHL team I'd take Toews. Right up their close to him though I'd say are Johnson and Okposo at Minnesota.

    I don't know squat about Tier 1 Junior players. So?

    The hawks strength is, without a doubt, in its depth. As a hawk fan I still wonder whether we have the gamebreakers needed to win it all. I think depth wise, we stack up with anyone (Pitts, WSH, LA, etc). I think that will start to become obvious over the next 2-3 years.
