    James Sheppard is probably #3 on the Left Wing. He may even be ahead of Frolik.

    Toews is a center, but could probably switch to wing. Kessel is probably going to switch to wing as well, esspecially if drafted by Pittsburgh.

    Goalies i would rate:
    1. Riku Helenius
    2. Jonathan Bernier
    3. Leland Irving
    4. Semen Varlamov
    5. Jhonas Enroth

    Tlusty should be at least #2 on left wing, possibly #1. Also I would definately put Okposo ahead of Stewart and Wishart over Mitera.

    At the beginning of the year he was on the wing but he was obviously better when he played at center.

    I thought Frolik and Tlusty were right wings !?

    Is it just me, or does there seem to be more rising and falling in ranking this year than any other?

    Left Wing
    1. Jonathan Toews
    2. Nick Foligno - grity clucht goal scorer and underrated skating, away underrated IMO.
    3. Cory Emmerton - High bust potential but worth the risk.
    4. Ryan Hillier
    5. Michael Frolik - Way overrated I don't think his game will ever come around.

    Right Wing
    1. Kyle Okposo - Just heard to many good things about this kid and not really impress by anyone else on the list.
    2. Chris Stewart
    3. Michael Grabner
    4. Bryce Swan
    5. Cal Clutterbuck

    Center
    1. Phil Kessel - I think people are overthinking things if Kessel isn't the #1 Center. Just to much speed and skill to pass on.
    2. Nicklas Backstrom
    3. Derick Brassard
    4. Brian Little - You'd like to see someone his size have blazing speed. He still has well above average skating and excellent work ethic and toughness.
    5. Peter Mueller

    Jordan Staal - Don't think that he's going to have the break out year like Marc and Eric did in their third years. I like the size skating and skills but he still just misses top 5 for me (easily top ten).

    Right D
    1. Erik Johnson
    2. Bobby Sanguinetti
    3. Carl Sneep
    4. David Fischer
    5. Ben Shutron - Lack of size mixed with below average speed makes me think he's not going to make the NHL for more than a few games.

    Left D
    1. Ty Wishart - Much safer pick than anyone else on this list to be a top 4 D-man.
    2. Nigel Williams
    3. Mark Mitera
    4. Brian Strait
    5. Yuri Alexandrov

    Don't know which side Matthew Carle play's but I have him as a good sleeper pick (probably a bust but really high top end if he makes it).

    p.s. James Sheppard is listed as a Center. He'd be my #2 LW if that's what he's been playing all year.

    He is a natural LW, but he played some C...i see him being a winger in the NHL
