    Michael Repik is way too low IMO plus you are missing Spencer Machacek.

    I'd deffinantly have colton sceviour in the top 90 and hickey looks a little low. I don't get to see many players outside the dub so its hard for me to really say but thomas hickey is one of the most impressive mobile defenseman i've seen (this comming from a guy who hates the team he plays for) 17-18 is where i'd have hickey I think.

    You've never heard of Alzner? Wow, you must not be following this draft too much ;)

    Seen by many as the best defenceman in this draft, the player that can possibly be the most NHL-ready out of this crop. Reminds people a lot of Wade Redden I guess, just a good all-around d-man. Perfect size, listed at 6'2 210 lbs and is apparently doing well in the playoffs. He plays for the Calgary Hitmen in the WHL. Here's a link:

    Like I said, right now he is the best defenceman in the draft, but some others have the potential to be better, like Ellerby and Shattenkirk, but you might have to wait a bit for those two. Hope this helps.

    I think the original poster was being facetious because his first name is Karl not Kyle.

    There is absolutely no way Alex Plante is a better defenseman than Hickey, but I can see Hickey go anywhere from 12-25. Personally, I like him better than Ellerby, McDonagh, Blum, and Shattenkirk.

    Where's Riley Nash? He's definately locked himself into a second round selection IMO and hop into the bottom half of the first round if someone likes him.

    It's been finding enough opinions on the rest, which is partially what I was looking for in this thread. Along with the individual rating debate.

    Is there any guy's you'd like to try and pimp here? Let us Canadians who are not as exposed to Euro hockey nearly as much as North American (obviouslly), get your personal opinion on some of the Finns, and if you think they may be worth picking and why.

    Smart ass;)
    As for Moller, you're most likely right, but this is meant as a ranking system, and it doesn't seem to me that he's one of the top 30 prospects available in this draft. May be one I change though if more seem to think he deserves to be higher here.

    Really? I noticed that a lot of ratings have him fairly high, but when I read reviews, they almost always talk about him as if he's at the same level as the other draft guy's, but he's not. He's a year older, and that should show in his on and off ice game. It's a big advantage at that age.

    I've read a few more recent comments/reviews on Max, and he's definetly a guy I'll be moving up in my next update.

    Hmm, Plante is a tough one to nail. People either seem to love or hate him. Some even favour him as the best potential of any dman in this draft. I've heard knocks on his skating, and also that it's very good. Some have commented on his ability to be an elite #1 guy, while others, the majority, seem to think he'll top out a Staios type level, likely lower. For now, I'm going to have him still fairly high, unless the negative continues to outweigh the positives. My line of thinking is that if a few REALLY like him, he's got to have some untapped potential those who don't see him as often don't see.

    As for Nash, not disagreeing, as I have read/heard couple nice things about him lately, but what makes you think he's 'locked' himself into a late 1st/2nd round pick.

    Thanks for the input so far everyone.

    F Nico Sacchetti he's likely to go anywhere from mid to late second to mid third.

    Pat Kane IS the best player in this draft, without a doubt. No way he ever falls to fourth. Repik will also most definately go first round after his Mem Cup performance.
