    Without taking into account his struggles this season, and just considering where he was coming into the 05' draft, where do you think he would be taken?

    brule will still be a top 10 talent in this league, he just needs more ice time.

    I dont know but Im wondering if Columbus is wishing Montreal took Brule. Would have been nice to have to settle for Kopitar.

    And thats no knock on Brule. I was hoping the Pens would land him if they didnt get Crosby.

    You think Brule will be a top ten player in the NHL? I don't see that ever happening.

    Honestly i don't think Brule would have gone 1st overall in this draft. He'd go top five for sure though.
     
  9. Brule struggled because hes not ready for the NHL yet. They brought him into the leauge too early.

    It's hard not to bring him in after his dominant performance last year at the mem cup.
     
  11. sure bring him in, but it was obvious he was still not ready after the first 10 games or so. Send him back down. You dont have to leave him here forever.

    Columbus seems to be the king at stiffling their best young players - hopefully they dont make the same mistake with Brassard.

    Where would Tlusty go in this draft?

    Would he also be a top 5 pick?

    Not at all when you consider there are kids younger than him in junior scoring a much higher pace.

    It doesnt matter...Tlusty's game isnt all about scoring...if the draft was all about numbers Hamill would go #3-4

    Tlusty would go top 10 in this draft, easily id say.

    I'd put him in the top 10, but not top 5 this draft.

    Brule is a very good prospect IMO. He needs some time !

    He is playing in the NHL this year ! Pouliot, Ryan and Skille are not !

    Brule #1 or #2 this year draft IMO.

    He's up to 16 points now, has played the season mainly with Jody Shelley - but since being promoted (slightly) he is starting to light the lamp. The guy is going to be a point per game player, a Mike Peca with soft hands kinda.

    Hard to say, but Brule did have some fairly serious injuries early in his career. Columbus was talent starved and probably put him in the line up way too early.

    Who ever saw the Canucks going 25-4-4 since christmas happening? ;)

    Id put Brule and Kessel in the same category. They wont tear the NHL apart as teenagers like Crosby and Kopitar, but will steadily mature and get stronger - and be all-stars by their early 20's.

    I'd say first overall if this was before we knew what he would play like up until now. With knowing how he has played up to this point he'd still be top five but maybe not number 1 anymore.

    Where do you think Crosby would go in this draft? I think he could give Kane/Cherepanov a run for their money.
