    :habs :habs :habs :habs i noticed some players are i n the nhl now and some are not for example ryan hollweg does this mean as an 8th rnder he's better than a 3rd pick or does it mean his team has a stronger need and can let him develop

    i mean is a player like hollweg better than a 3rd 4th , 5th rnder not in the nhl yet from the 2001 draft

    Well he is playing in the NHL, so he is better than some 3rd rounders etc then. The 2001 draft is getting to the stage where the guys who will play in the NHL from the draft have already made the show or are fairly close to doing so.
    Obviously some of the project picks higher in the draft are still ongoing, and those players may take another year or so.
    If Ryan Hollweg is playing in the NHL (i dont know anything about him, is he just fringe) then yes he is better than alot of the 3/4/5th rounders because alot of those guys havent made it and wont make it.

    I think the interesting thing for the 2001 draft is if Chistov and Svitov come back from Russia next season and have breakthrough seasons.

    Kovachuk/Spezza is a damn good 1-2 punch to start a draft, not to mention a lot of other good players were taken in this one. Very strong.

    Very very strong draft so far.
     
  6. Ryan Hollweg is no star (not you said that he was). He's just an energy guy for the Rangers. That said, he's a fan favorite and most fans complain (that's what Rangers fans do) when he's not in the lineup. He's a good role player.

    The Blues had McClement at #57 and he's starting to get there as a 3rd-line defensive center. (Of course, it would help if Mike Kitchen wasn't an idiot and could manage a roster). They also had Petr Cajanek at #253 who, coming into this season, had been outscored by only Kovalchuk, Spezza and was tied with Hemsky (Cajanek was 21-43-64 in 121 games, Hemsky was 18-46-64 in 130 games) among guys drafted in 2001.

    They might still get Semin over from Russia, and Skoog from Sweden. Otherwise, Nissinen has pretty much washed out, Valeev is probably staying in Russia, Scheffelmaier retired in October, and Jacobsen washed out.

    The 2001 draft has worked out quite well for the Stars, particularly in shootouts :) .

    Awful draft for NJ.
    2001
    28 C Adrian Foster : injury prone
    44 C Igor Pohanka : traded
    48 L Tuomas Pihlman : lone with NHL creditential, still a prospect
    67 R Robin Leblanc : disappeared
    72 C Brandon Nolan : unsigned, borderline AHLer
    128 F Andrei Posnov : still in Russia
    163 L Andreas Salomonsson : came back in Europe after his trade
    194 James Massen : didn't work after an up and down NCAA career
    229 W Aaron Voros : still a good prospect
    257 Evgeny Gamalei : disappeared.

    Worst NJ draft in last 10 years at this point.

    249 D Matthew Maglione
    254 Petr Polcik
    275 G Robert Mueller
    284 F Viktor Hubl

    '01 was definelty a disgusting draft by the Capitals, even if they didnt have a pick till the 58th

    Fussey is a fringe players at best and Oduya is the only one who seems to have a decent upside...maybe a top 4 dmen

    For San Jose:

    20 Marcel Goc- A very good pick for someone who has the potential to play on the second line, the top pk-unit, and win the Selke.

    106 Christian Ehrhoff- His stock has varied over the years. Could still be a top four defenseman, which would be a steal. Otherwise, a 5-7 defenseman who is dangerous on the powerplay; still a good pick.

    107 Dmitri Patzold- Future backup goaltender, he can at least play well in the AHL. Might have been betters options for this pick.

    140 Tomas Plihal- AHL fodder. This pick could ahve been used better

    175 Ryan Clowe- He has it in him to be a future third liner. Is not really showing that so far, but should at the very least be a reserve forward. Excellent for a sixth round pick.

    182 Tom Cavanagh- Went through the college route. Could be a regular fourth line energy forward with good passing ability. Reminds me of Mark Smith with more finesse. Good pick.

    The lack of a second and third round pick really hurt the Sharks in this draft. Still, a pretty good draft, where only one pick out of six will not make the NHL. Much better than the 2000 and 2002 drafts.

    It was a good draft for the Oilers (based on their own history).

    #13- Ales Hemsky: Terrific young player who is playing in his third NHL season.
    #43- Doug Lynch: Cup of coffee, seems to have taken backward step from solid rookie season in AHL
    #52- Ed Caron: Retired. Poor pick.
    #84- Kenny Smith: Has played in ECHL and AHL, looks like an extreme long shot to make the show.
    #133- Jussi Markkanen: Overager who has done extremely well.
    #154- Jake Brenk: Not so much.
    #185- Mikael Svensk: Haven't heard much about him in the last year or so.
    #215- Dan Baum: Injuries have derailed career.
    #248- Kari Haakana: Played some in NHL. Overager.
    #272- Ales Pisa: Played in NHL, looked good. Overager.
    #278- Shay Stephenson: Re-entered draft and went I believe to Carolina.

    Oilers got a quality offensive talent, a backup goalie and a prospect good enough to get himself included in the biggest Oiler trade since Messier. Plus two cups of coffee from the 200's.

    By Oiler standards, a watershed.

    To be fair, Paetsch did make his NHL debut this year after the Sabres drafted him in the 7th round of 2003 draft after you guys couldn't or didn't want to sign him.

    12 D Dan Hamhuis - can't believe he lasted this long. already looking like a star in only his second year.
    33 L Timofei Shishkanov - the jury's still out. all the skill in the world, decent size, sometimes seems dominant...but wildly inconsistent. unstoppable one game, invisible the next.
    42 D Tomas Slovak - seemingly promising offensive d-man in the WHL, mysteriously traded to Colorado for "attitude problems," played mostly in their ECHL affiliate before returning to Slovakia.
    75 C Denis Platonov - Big center played three games with Milwaukee, got homesick, and returned to Russia. Burned bridges with some parting shots made as he left.
    76 C Oliver Setzinger - Comes to camp every year, dazzles everyone with his moves, has put up numbers everywhere he's played. Was supposed to be in Milwaukee this year, but stayed one more year in Europe for "personal reasons," something to do with his family.
    98 R Jordin Tootoo - Fan favorite, only reason he's not in the NHL right now is that he still doesn't have to clear waivers. Rounding out his game nicely.
    178 Anton Lavrentyev - never set foot in North America. Never will.
    240 Gustav Grasberg - See above.
    271 D Mikko Lehtonen - Overage defenseman from Finland, putting up good numbers in Finland..but...we've no need for him.

    solid draft for the leafs.... wellwood and kondratiev are potential steals. The first four picks were solid... harrison is starting to come into his own in the ahl... bell is a fine prospect for the future... pilar was solid until heart issues.

    Decent draft for the Leafs picked up a couple of really good prospects/players, and some were still waiting on.

    17 D Carlo Colaiacovo (Great Pick, needs to stop getting hurt)
    39 D Karel Pilar (Was turning into a good 4-6 D-man, before his recent health problems)
    65 D Brendan Bell (Has Offensive potential, so could be 4-6 dman)
    82 D Jay Harrison (Called up to NHL, But might become solid tough 5-6 Dman)
    88 C Nicolas Corbeil (bad pick, put up good junior #'s. Career AHL'er/Fringe AHL'er)
    134 C Kyle Wellwood (Great Pick, Welly has proven himself capable at all levels)
    168 D Maxim Kondratiev (Another great pick should be a solid dman, currently in NY system)
    183 L Jaroslav Sklenar (dissappeared)
    198 F Ivan Kolozvary (Somewhere in Slovakia)
    213 G Jan Chovan (In the Beer Leagues)
    246 D Tomas Mojzis (Playin in Manitoba of the AHL)
    276 F Mike Knoepfli (decent NCAA career, somewhere is Switzerland)

    Chistov should come back next season, his game could work in the new NHL. Svitov still could come back and be a third line center.

    For the Bruins, Shaone Morrisonn looks like he'll be pretty decent for the Caps after going there in the Gonchar deal.

    Look at these picks though.

    179- D Andrew Alberts
    209- G Jordan Sigalet
    241- D Milan Jurcina


    Sigalet is not a bad prospect, having been diagnosed with MS, but look at the two defensemen. They have been playing well thus far. Pretty hard to get two top six defensemen in the same year, that late....
