    no way Vincent goes ahead of Levasseur and Mior. I don't care what stats say and the year he is having, Lev. and Mior have talent that Vincent doesn't, no after this fact I wouldn't put Vincent out of 1st round either.

    Finland should be something like
    1. Tuukka Rask
    2. Risto Korhonen (1986)
    3. Miika Lahti
    4. Teemu Laakso

    Next season is the most important to these boys. I wonder why you listed Sandell because I think Lindgren is much better player at least on games I've seen (only a few). Lehtonen's only ability this far is his size.

    By thinking only the prospects hockey cards the 2006 Finnish crop is maybe a bit better, because the top four are all forwards. I really wonder why CardSet didn't include Jesse Joensuu to their 03-04 set because they had enough time to get his pic. But in Finland the prospect collecting is not big thing as in North America.

    I believe Daniel Ryder is eligible in 2006 not 2005. He is a late birthdate otherwise I would have included him.

    I understand that Levasseur had an amazing under-17 but it will be interesting to see what he does playing against older guys next year. It is difficult to rate a goalie who has hardly played any games outside of quebec midget as a top 10 pick next year based on 1 tournament. Mior has a save percentage of under .900 on a pretty good team. Vincent has one of the top save percentages in the Q this year and is a huge goaltender (6'1, 205). It is hard to rank performance in one tournament over a whole year's consistency. That is why I put Vincent ahead of Levasseur and Mior.

    Ryder and Heshmatpour should be on that list, Staal should be higher. As should Drazenovic and Bourdon.
