    Curious. There's a poll on TSN.ca on the NHL page which asks "Ovechkin and Malkin will likely go 1-2 on Saturday. Who goes third?" The options are Barker, Montoya, Tukonen, Schwarz, Ladd, and Other. Where's Olesz?

    Currently, Barker leads, followed by Montoya, Ladd, Tukonen, Schwarz, and Other.

    Well considering Bob Mackenzie talked to some scouts and GM's and decided to rank Olesz 10th in his preview and said "he might slip out of the top 10", it's pretty easy to see why they don't think he'll go 3rd.

    Olesz might not have the offensive skill set to be much of interest that high , i guess he'll got between 5/10 .

    What? I have heard that his offense is second only to AO in this draft. I am wrong?

    Yes. Malkin is much more offensively skilled than Olesz.

    Malkin and Tukonen are 100 times more offensive.

    Olesz is going to be the steal of the draft. He has Jaromir Jagr potential.

    We've consistently had Olesz at or around #10 all year at younggunshockey.com. We just didn't see the same offensive potential others did. Looks like people have finally come around. And I don't understand why folks are surprised Montoya's pegged to go high by some. To us, Montoya's the BPA after Ovechkin and Malkin.

    In my opinion the top three are pretty clear-cut, Ovechkin, then a gap, then Malkin, then a gap, then Olesz, then a large gap.

    Olesz is every bit as good offensively as Tukonen IMO, and better defensively.

    Malkin is probably be better but not THAT much. Olesz was outscoring him until Nion Dion broke his head.

    AO, Malkin, Tukonen, Robbie Schremp, and Radulov are all better offensively.

    AO - Yes. Malkin - Yes. IMHO Olesz is every bit as good as the rest. Time will tell of course.

    Olesz just isn't as good as Schremp and Tukonen offensivley. Olesz reminds me of Michalek, slipped out of the top 5 last year because scouts were concerned about his scoring potential.
