    Just wondering, who are the big dogs in the '06 entry draft. Since everyone is talking Sidney Sidney Sidney, who is favored to go top the next year?

    Thx

    I believe Bryan Little in the OHL is a '06er, he seems to be having a solid season, I don't see the O much though, does anyone have an update on him?

    I believe his first name is Alexander, last name being Vasyunov. Plays in Russia, a big time scorer.

    It's still very early, but there are other guys that have done a bit more than he has and deserve to be mentioned over him at this point.

    ISS currently has Peter Mueller ranked #1 for 2006.

    ISS = International Scouting Service.

    Peter Mueller is an '88-born from the U.S. He is currently playing for the USNTDP U-18 team as an underager, and I believe he is leading them in goals.

    Phil Kessel, a late '87, is currently injured, but had 16 points in 8 games for the USNTDP U-18 team before he went down. He is another top prospect for the '06 draft.

    Jonathon Toews (pronounced 'Tayves') - from Winnipeg, playing at Shattuck's -will be right up there.

    From what I heard, he was completely unimpressive at the recent four nations tournament.

    I still think Phil Kessel has a great shot at going #1 overall next year.

    Kessell is out of this world, better than Mueller in my opinion.

    And Toews is amazing but I think Kessell's got a leg up on him.

    Yeah, that's their Oct. rankings.

    In their Nov. rankings, Mueller is 1st, Joensuu 2nd, Frolik 3rd, Kessel 4th, and Vasyunov 5th. Which confirms that there's no clear #1, just a group of guys like in '03. At this point, anyway.

    You have to be a subscriber to get all the latest rankings, otherwise you'll probably just be stuck with their Oct. sample for the rest of the year.

    Also, McKeen's put up a scouting report on Mueller just after the 4 nations tourney. Seems they're very high on him as well.

    It seems like that. He's proven more than all of these guys, at least. I said it for their Oct. rankings, and I'll say it again now, I think Kessel deserves to be #1 at this point.

    Isn't Brian Foster also an 06 eligible player?

    Haven't seen him play but have read some very good things about this kid. He's a goalie (UNH-bound) currently playing with the Junior Monarchs of the EJHL.

    Foster is '05 eligible. His backup, Ryan Simpson, is an '06 who is supposed to be pretty good.

    I don't think there will be an '05 draft, so I'm going with Crosby in '06. It's going to be a very deep draft. :D

    I watched the U18's a couple of weeks ago playing Harvard. Mueller was the clearly the best player on the team. I have also seen Kessel a few times and he is a dynamic player but Mueller will be the top pro prospect in 2006.
