    Who would be in the top 5 in 2005, other than Brule and Crosby?

    Solid list, but no way does Phil Kessel not make the top 5 at the moment. One of the best American born players in years.

    Kessel is a late '87 so he's 2006 draft eligible.

    That seems about perfect. I have seen the last 4 play and your ranking are right on to what i thought. Maybe Levasseur or Mior could squuze in too as Top Goalie

    Nothing against Mior, but Levasseur is far and away the better goaltending talent as proven at the Under-17s

    7. Andrew Cogliano NCAA
    8. Chris Durand WHL
    9. Christoph Gawlik GERMANY *BELIEVE HE'S ELIGIBLE, CANT FIND BIRTHDATE
    10. Patrick McNeill OHL
    11. Jack Johnson USA
    11. Devon Setoguchi WHL
    12. Chris Lawrence OHL

    Dont ya think JP Lavs is a bit high considering he isnt even in the Q this year. I think he will be a 1st rounder but 6th overall seems a bit high at this point.

    Also i assume thats Guillaume and not Olivier :)

    He'll most likely be going the college route.

    Don't forget about Dan Bertram. He's a top notch talent and will decide at the end of this season where he will play in 2004/2005. He's having an fine year in Camrose to this point. Chris Durand is another 1987 on the rise playing for a crappy team in Seattle. He has size at 6'2 and is putting up some decent numbers in his rookie year with the T-Birds.

    A couple others for 2005 that I've been impressed with;

    Nick Drazenovic - Skilled, will get his nose dirty, but a little light at this point for 6'1.

    Brock Bradford - Small, crafty forward lighting it up in the BCHL so far this year.

    My bad, I screwed up on the Latendresse thing...

    I am aware Levasseur is in Midget, but he was by far (and I mean a long shot) the best goaltender at the Under-17s. The reason Quebec got where they did. He is definitely something special, with a style very similar to Martin Brodeur. Midget or not, he is the best goaltender his age in the world. Needless to say, I was very impressed with him.

    As far as Bertram goes, he's in the same situation as Andrew Cogliano. But the list was drawn up on who I believed to be the best available at the present time... and that's where I think Bertram fits.

    Besides Crosby there, I don't think anyone is better than Daniel Bertram, Ryan is awsome but this draft has a top 10 that could almost be unmatched and players of his caliber who would normally be a top 5 talent could fall to like 7th to 8th overall because players like Crosby, Bertram, Brule, Anikeenko, Latendresse, Cogliano should get taken ahead of him.

    Very good... Kovac was amazing at the Under-17s as well, for a team that lacked effort at times. I might even put him ahead of Mior.

    Paquet had that collar bone injury so I really haven't seen enough...

    Churilov is the second best Russian prospect...

    Really great additions there.

    I assume that most of you are basically only 'guessing' and taking wild stabs .. but I would be surprised if a scout that had seen all the top 2005 eligibles would not include Swede Nicklas Bergfors in his top 15, top 20.

    I haven't seen him. Unfortunately Sweden didn't send a team to the Under-17s and we have limited info on him in NA. What can you tell us about him? And where would you place him?

    As for the Q, we're making up for 2004 next year lol... let's not forget we have Saulnier and Sheppard available too from Halifax!
