    I know its a year away, but I'm looking for some opinions, maybe a couple of lists on the top 2008 prospects, guys like Doughty, Stamkos, Boychuk, Schenn, Beach, Teubert, Eberle etc.

    Colby Robak

    Here's a sleeper pick for 2008. Playing well as a 16 year old in the dub. Big kid, going to be an offensive defenceman.

    Note: I'm not saying he's a top 10 prospect, but he might be in the top couple of rounds....

    Alex Pietrangelo flies completely under the radar, but its nice to see ISS high on him. this guy can be a dominant player on the NHL. He is everything you want out of a top pick. has size, mobility, insane offensive ability, and very good in his own zone. If Tomas Kaberle was 3 inches bigger, you'd have Pietrangelo.

    I can't speak for europe, the US, quebec or western canada for 08, but for ontario, i'd have for a top 5..

    Pietrangelo
    Stamkos
    Del Zotto
    Doughty
    Hodgson

    with Jamie Arniel, Tyler Cuma, Shawn Lalonde, AJ Jenks right outside

    have been playing very well for the Regina Pats in the WHL,and will probably make 2 NHL teams very happy when they get drafted(unless they get drafted by the same team) it could happen but it would be rare. IMO

    Some other players from the Saskatoon Blades that are eligible for the 2008 draft are:Braden Holtby,Teigan Zahn,Gaelan Patterson,Jared Freisen,Cameron Canart.

    True. He has a short choppy stride, but the puck is like glued to his stick at times and he looks for the long bomb alot. Doesn't go looking for the physical game though, which will hurt him at the pro level. IN midget last year the one game i saw he dominated and was head and shoulders above everybody.

    I'm thinking that he's a typical 16 year old in the dub and not initiating physical play with guys much older than him. He has the size to be physical though and maybe that'll happen more as he grows in confidence? He's going to get a regular shift now with yeo out for several weeks...

    I'd put my money on Kirill Petrov. Absolutely blew me away when I saw him at the Four Nations Tournament this past fall.

    I have to agree with your assessment of Pietrangelo. The guy is an absolute stud on the ice even at 16. He has a good skating stride and is good in all aspects of the game.

    Kevin Poulin will be the top goalie at the games IMO, he is really something special like mentioned above...I would put his potential in the class with Luongo and Fleury at the same age.

    It's going to be a rather thin class for Minnesota High Schools. Many of the kids in this group are smaller. The 2009 class is much deeper and bigger.

    Mike Fink - F - Hopkins
    Tyler Landman - F - Roseau
    Jake Youso - F - International Falls
    Jared Festler - F - Little Falls
    Drew Olson - D - Brainerd
    Brady Hjelle - G - International Falls

    Anybody have an addition to this? I find it difficult to believe that this league will go from 20 ranked players to only 6.

    Well--if scouts were salivating over 2007 eligible LW James Van Riemsdyk's (USA) performance at the recent 5Nations Tournament (feb 7-11) held in Most Czech Rep. where he ad 4g+2a in 4GP to tie for 2nd in scoring and certainly the best LW in the '07 draft--what does it say about 2008 eligible LW Andre Petersson (Sweden) who
    had 5g+2a =7pts in 4GP to finish first in scoring? With Stamkos,Doughty,a better deeper Russian crop and Petersson and Tedenby from Sweden--2008 is shaping up as a very good draft crop..

    I'm personally super excited about Beach, I'm still hoping the Avs somehow get him.

    Is Tyler Myers a dual-citizen? I had thought he was from Texas and moved to Alberta a few years ago to play at Notre Dame.
