  1. Is the 2006 draft as good as recent drafts? Also, who are some of the better defensemen available?

    the 2006 draft is going to be up there with 2003 IMO, the main attractions in the draft IMO are Phil Kessel, Michal Frolik, Jonathan Toews, Peter Mueller. Then you have the next set of crop that are James Sheppard, Jesse Jouensuu, Jordan Staal, Brian Little, Tomas Marcinko, Cory Emmerton, Derrick Brassard, Ben Maxwell, Bobby Hughes, Andrei Popov, Alexander Vasynov, Jiri Tlusty, Benjamin Breault. These are all forwards with a ton of potential and some like Little, Sheppard, Staal and Jouensuu are not far behind the 4 main attractions.

    Some of the big d-men for the draft are:

    Yuri Alexandrov (franchise potential)
    Erik Johnson (franchise potential)
    Ben Shutron
    Mark Mitera
    Ivan Vishnevsky
    Mathieu Carle
    Jiri Suchey
    Alex Lamontagne

    goalies are really good as well:

    J-C Blanchard (franchise)
    Jonathan Bernier (franchise)
    Mike Sauer (franchise)
    Joe Palmer

    Joe Palmer is a franchise goaltender. He is one of the most fierce competitors I have ever seen and without a doubt the most mentally tough player available in the draft. He should definately be a 1st rounder.

    Theres a Billy Sauer in McKeens top 15. Is that the goalie you have listed?

    What about Sanguinetti?
     

  5. 2003?!?!?

    That's some pretty tough competition...

    Ranked 60th by McKeens.

    Billy Sauer is ranked 10th, however.
