    Crosby. No one gives this guy any credit but I think he will turn out ok.

    Pierre Hedin.

    Everyone talks about Steen, Wellwood, Stajan, Kronwall, but nobody ever really talks about Hedin.

    Jeremy Colliton. Before his injury at the WJC he was having a good enough season to be given the honor of playing on a line with Bergeron and Crosby. That he was initially chosen over so much talent on that team shows what a strong overall player he is.

    Joakim Lindstrom for the CBJ.

    2nd round pick a few years ago, had some injuries. MacLean missed a chance to bring him to NA two years ago, then last year he got buried on his roster when the NHL'ers fled to his league.
    Came to Syracuse and looked good. I'm anxious to see him put in a full AHL year, possibly with some NHL time.

    Welch is definitely underated

    For the Kings, I'd say Tambellini. I think he'll end up being the best of all their current prospects.

    I think it's quite safe to say that Jimmy Howard is an underrated prospect from the Wings, not many ppl give him credit and he's a heck of a goalie.

    For the Canucks probably Kevin Bieksa d-man. He rose pretty quickly in the depth chart with a very solid rookie season after 4 years in the CCHA. He could get some callups this year....and that was probably far fetched before last season.

    Tyler Bouck, although he may not be a prospect anymore, is one too. He's sort of fallen off the radar (not because of bad play), but because he doesn't get talked about much. I think he'll be a solid 4th liner especially if May isn't re-signed.

    For the Canucks RJ Umberger -

    OOPS Burkie failed to sign him, lost him for a bag of pucks and then RJ led the AHL champion Phantoms in scoring.

    for the Minnesota Wild (and I hate to say this because he took two picks!) Danny Irmen. He's a bulldog and a tough player. Something the Wild need but also he put up some good points this year on the Gophers. No one has really talked about him but he's coming into his own. I think he would have been a second rounder in any other draft.

    On defense, Clayton Stoner. The guy absolutely rocks. Solid, steady defenseman...physical...really came into his own this year...

    for the Canes - Casey Borer

    he doesn't get a lot of attention around here because he doesn't put up big numbers (or, even small ones most of the time either) offensively. That said, his defensive game is solid to the point that he's likely to make the Canes as a shut-down defenseman sometime in the next 2-3 seasons. One of the few selections that the Canes have gotten absolutely right since '98.

    For the Oilers probably Mathieu Roy. Drafted in the 400th round as a 19 year old, he received zero hype and was the Roadrunners best defender last season. Not that the Roadrunners were any screaming hell, but they did have a first rounder (Woywitka) and a high second (Lynch) in the fold.

    It'll be interesting to see which of the three will be the first called up.

    Antoine Vermette. We don't really hear about him for a year, then he comes up and does the role that Martin asks of him, and then gets overshadowed because he replaced Spezza in the playoffs. Oh, he also set up Fisher in game 6.
