    Well we are going to get a draft after all and I could not be happier. For me, this is one of the most anticipated drafts ever because of the uncertainty of the draft order and the fact that every team in the NHL has a chance of landing Crosby. I am almost more excited to see what happens at the draft lottery than of the actual draft.

    As for the rankings, I have been doing this for a couple of years and it is purely just for fun. I do not consider myself a scout. I am more like The Hockey News minus the connections to scouts and General Managers. Like them, I try to gather as much knowledge as I can on these players and use this in determining my rankings. I have been able to see over 80 players on the list and all but three of them in my top 50. However, my viewings have been limited on most of the players and definitely not enough to come away with anything other than some impressions of each player. That is where scouting services, as well as other posters on HF come in handy. Therefore, I hope you enjoy the rankings. Comments and questions are always appreciated.

    RANK NAME POS TEAM BD HT/WT

    1 Crosby, Sidney C Rimouski (QMJHL) 8/7/1987 5’11/195
    I have nothing to say that hasn’t already.

    2 Johnson, Jack D USA U-18 (NTDP) 1/13/1987 6’1/200
    Johnson has all the tools to be a number 1 defenseman, which include an edge and aggressiveness that you just can’t teach.

    3 Pouliot, Benoit LW Sudbury (OHL) 9/29/1986 6’3/180
    The slick skating Pouliot has all the makings of a superstar but to become one, he needs to add strength as well as realize how good a talent he is.

    4 Kopitar, Anze C Sodertalje (Swe) 8/24/1987 6’2/200
    Kopitar has everything you want in a number one center, especially his hands that have been compared to Buffalo’s Tomas Vanek.

    5 Ryan, Bobby RW Owen Sound (OHL) 3/17/1987 6’1/215
    Ryan is a power forward in the mold of John LeClair and would be as high as 2nd on my list if his skating was better (though it is as not as bad as some are led to believe).

    6 Brule, Gilbert C Vancouver (WHL) 1/1/1987 5’10/175
    Brule plays a feisty game that somewhat reminds of Mike Richards but the difference is that Brule has a better shot and is a better skater than Richards is.

    7 Bourret, Alex RW Lewiston (QMJHL) 10/5/1986 5’10/210
    Bourret is built like a tank and hits like one as his play is reminiscent of Raffi Torres but with better vision and playmaking abilities.

    8 O’Marra, Ryan C Erie (OHL) 6/9/1987 6’2/195
    O’Marra is a natural leader who is likely to be future captain material and a very good 2nd line center.

    9 Skille, Jack RW USA U-18 (NTDP) 5/19/1987 6’1/200
    Skille likes to play a physical power forward style, which has drawn comparisons to Bill Guerin.

    10 Staal, Marc D Sudbury (OHL) 1/13/1987 6’4/195
    Staal is a solid yet unspectacular d-man who rarely makes a mistake and over the year has added a more physical side to his game.

    11 Zagrapan, Marek C Chicoutimi (QMJHL) 12/6/1986 6’1/195
    Zagrapan has all the skills to be a 1st line center but he needs to improve his consistency, as he will likely be effective only if he is playing on your top 2 lines.

    12 Latendresse, Guillaume RW Drummondville (QMJHL) 6/9/1987 6’2/215
    Latendresse has all the tools to be a top line power forward with a physical edge but question marks surround him, especially since his skating is about as good as Mike Grier.

    13 Price, Carey G Tri-City (WHL) 8/16/1987 6’3/210
    Price is my top goalie as he has the best combination of size, technique and natural ability as well as being very mature for his age (he does not turn 18 for another month).

    14 Bergfors, Nicklas RW Sodertalje (Swe) 3/7/1987 5’11/195
    Bergfors has a build very similar to Crosby combined with good skills and hustle. However, he does need to use his teammates more often.

    15 Rask, Tuukka G Ilves (Fin) 3/10/1987 6’1/175
    While Price is my top rated goalie, Rask may have more upside and natural ability but his fundamentals still need some work.

    16 Parent, Ryan D Guelph (OHL) 3/17/1987 6’2/185
    Parent is an excellent skating d-man that plays a strong positional game but has limited offensive upside.

    17 Bourdon, Luc D Val D’Or (QMJHL) 2/16/1987 6’3/200
    Bourdon’s upside is slightly higher than Parent and Stall but he is not as consistent as either and makes more mental errors than they make.

    18 Setoguchi, Devin RW Saskatoon (WHL) 1/1/1987 6’0/185
    Setoguchi is a hard working, physical winger that is slightly undersized who can be very inconsistent when it comes to goal scoring.

    19 McArdle, Kenndal LW Moose Jaw (WHL) 1/4/1987 5’11/190
    McArdle is a hard worker who plays bigger than his size and has the upside to be a good 2nd or 3rd line winger in the NHL.

    20 Hanzal, Martin RW Ceske (Cze) 2/20/1987 6’4/200
    Hanzal has very good hands for a player of his size and uses it well to his advantage yet there is concern that he is being overrated because of one good tournament.

    21 Lashoff, Matt D Kitchener (OHL) 9/29/1986 6’2/200
    Lashoff had a very inconsistent year after returning from battling mono but he does have a good upside that is similar to Bourdon.

    22 Lee, Brian D Moorhead (USHS) 3/26/1987 6’2/190
    Lee’s puck rushing and offensive skills, which go along with a solid defensive game, give him the upside to be a top 4 d-man.

    23 Stoa, Ryan LW USA U-18 (NTDP) 4/13/1987 6’3/200
    Stoa is a big playmaking winger with a good overall skill level and two-way game yet he does have some problems with his consistency.

    24 Mikkelson, Brendan D Portland (WHL) 6/22/1987 6’2/180
    Mikkelson is an excellent skater that does everything well but nothing great. However, he does have the potential to be a good offensive d-man if he improves his consistency in that area.

    25 Bertram, Dan C Boston College (H.E.) 1/14/1987 5’11/175
    Bertram had an inconsistent year but that does not change the fact that he is a very skilled and quick player that has a similar upside to Bergfors (Bertram needs to add more leg strength).

    26 Cogliano, Andrew C St. Michael’s (OPJHL) 6/14/1987 5’10/175
    Cogliano is an undersized but very talented player that did not help his development by playing against inferior competition (playing in Michigan will be good for his development).

    27 Durand, Chris C Seattle (WHL) 1/21/1987 6’1/190
    Durand’s offense disappeared at year’s end but that will not stop him from being picked fairly high as he is a very mature player that has a good all around game.

    28 Kindl, Jakub D Kitchener (OHL) 2/10/1987 6’3/200
    Kindl’s upside is huge, as he has all the tools to be a top defenseman, but he has never put it all together and he lacks intensity at times.

    29 Pavelec, Ondrej G Kladno (Cze) 8/31/1987 6’2/180
    Pavelec was the top goalie at the U-18 and his natural ability and reflexes make him a 1st round choice, even though his technique does need work.

    30 Korhonen, Risto D Karpat (Fin) 11/27/1986 6’3/200
    Korhonen’s style of play is similar to Ossi Vaananen as he is a big, strong, physical, stay at home d-man with limited offensive upside.

    31 Jackson, Scott D Seattle (WHL) 2/5/1987 6’4/200
    Like Korhonen, Jackson is another big, stay-at-home d-man though he does not have as much of an edge to his game as Korhonen.

    32 Istomin, Denis C Chelyabinsk (Rus) 1/12/1987 6’1/195
    Istomin is a prototypical Russian player with a good skill level and speed to his game but he could still add more strength and physical play.

    33 Vojta, Jakub D Sparta (Cze) 2/8/1987 6’0/195
    Vojta has been inconsistent in his effort level (he plays better at the international tournaments) but when he is playing well, he is one of the best offensive d-men in the draft.

    34 Trukhno, Slava LW P.E.I. (QMJHL) 2/22/1987 6’1/195
    Trukhno’s is fun to watch as he is a great one-on-one player but he needs to learn how to use his teammates better.

    35 Ryder, Daniel C Peterborough (OHL) 1/12/1987 5’11/195
    Ryder is one of the best two-way forwards in the draft and will likely be a very good checking center but he does have the upside to play on the 2nd line.

    36 Kohn, Dustin D Calgary (WHL) 2/2/1987 6’1/185
    Kohn is an underrated d-man whose best assets are his skating and the offensive side of his game. He does need to add some strength to be more effective defensively.

    37 Buravchikov, Vyacheslav D Moscow Krylja (Rus) 5/22/1987 6’1/190
    Buravchikov is one of the best skating offensive d-men in the draft though he will likely never be more than average in his own zone.

    38 Zubarev, Andrei D Salavat Ufa (Rus) 3/3/1987 6’1/200
    Zubarev is a solid yet unspectacular d-man with a good all around game and no real glaring weaknesses.

    39 Niskanen, Matt D Virginia (USHS) 12/6/1986 6’1/195
    Niskanen is a wildcard in the draft as he is still raw in his abilities but he does have a similar upside to Brian Lee.

    40 Kudelka, Tomas D Zlin (Cze) 3/10/1987 6’2/180
    Kudelka’s offensive game is well developed and he plays a smart defensive game but he needs to add strength and improve his aggressiveness to be more effective in his own zone.

    41 Frazee, Jeff G USA U-18 (NTDP) 5/13/1987 6’0/185
    Frazee is a talented goalie that needs to work on his technique. If he does improve in that area, he could be a very good starting goalie in the NHL.

    42 Stastny, Paul C Denver (WCHA) 12/27/1985 6’0/200
    Stastny is an underrated, hard-working player that has a good two-way game. The only negative about his game is that he is not a speedster.

    43 Vincent, Alexandre G Chicoutimi (QMJHL) 12/11/1986 6’4/205
    Vincent is a big goalie that covers the net well though he still needs some work in his positional play even though it has improved over the year.

    44 Smolenak, Radek LW Kingston (OHL) 12/3/1986 6’3/190
    Smolenak is not the best skater in the draft but makes up for it by having very good hands and a good frame that needs more muscle added to it.

    45 Mikus, Juraj RW Skalica (Svk) 2/22/1987 6’1/185
    Mikus is a very slick player with the puck, in addition to being a quick skater who needs to improve on going into traffic and playing more physical at times.

    46 Karpov, Vladimir LW Salavat Ufa (Rus) 10/3/1986 6’1/195
    Karpov is the mystery man of the draft but is described as having a good skill level to go along with a nasty edge to his game.

    47 Abdelkadar, Justin LW Cedar Rapids (USHL) 2/25/1987 6’1/195
    Abdelkadar is a good skater, who has some decent offensive skill and does his best work in the traffic areas.

    48 Blunden, Michael RW Erie (OHL) 12/15/1986 6’3/215
    Blunden does not have a great offensive upside to his game but he is definitely a guy you want on your team, as he is all heart and plays very physical.

    49 Lehtonen, Mikko RW Espoo (Fin) 4/1/1987 6’3/195
    Lehtonen is a big forward that skates well for a big man and plays physical at times but his offensive upside is questionable as he was outscored by Korhonen during the regular season.

    50 Levasseur, J.P. G Rouyn-Noranda (QMJHL) 1/15/1987 6’1/185
    Levasseur has not had an impressive year and was used as a backup but that does not change the fact that he is a good butterfly goalie with great technique.

    51 Laakso, Teemu D HIFK (Fin) 8/27/1987 6’0/195
    Laakso’s stock has been dropping because even though he is a smart, hard working d-man that will play physical most scouts feel he does not have the size to be a physical d-man nor the skill to be an offensive d-man.

    52 Hensick, T.J. C Michigan (CCHA) 12/10/1985 5’10/180
    Despite Hensick’s lack of size, he is a very skilled offensive center. However, if he wants to make the NHL he needs to add some strength while working on his defensive game.

    53 Neal, James LW Plymouth (OHL) 9/3/1987 6’2/185
    Neal has demonstrated that he is a reliable two-way forward that is solid in all areas but does not really stand out in any one area.

    54 Sauer, Michael D Portland (WHL) 8/7/1987 6’2/200
    Sauer is a solid, physical two-way defenseman but because of his injuries and lack of exposure, he is a 2nd round pick.

    55 Plante, Tyler G Brandon (WHL) 5/16/1987 6’3/190
    Plante’s has good size and covers the net well but he still has some areas to work on his game, the main one being rebound control.

    56 Shirokov, Sergei LW CSKA (Rus) 3/10/1986 5’10/175
    Shirokov will not be passed over twice as he is a small, skilled and feisty player. His cockiness can be a turn off but it also makes him the player he is.

    57 Davis, Patrick LW Kitchener (OHL) 12/28/1986 6’2/190
    Davis has almost everything you want for a 2nd line winger, as he is big and fast and has a decent skill level. The only problem is that he sometimes avoids the traffic areas.

    58 Pokulok, Sasha D Cornell (ECAC) 5/25/1986 6’5/220
    What is different about Pokulok is that for being such a big guy, he is more of an offensive d-man. He is working on his physical game but he lacks the edge that you want out of him.

    59 Zubov, Ilja C Traktor Chelyabinsk (Rus) 2/14/1987 6’0/175
    Based on talent alone, Zubov should be a 1st round pick as he can be a magician with the puck but his soft play is what drops him in the rankings.

    60 Finley, Joe D Sioux Falls (USHL) 6/29/1987 6’7/240
    For those that like their defenseman big, mean and nasty than Finley is your guy. His offensive upside is very limited but that is not what you are drafting for with Finley.

    61 Mihalik, Vladimir D Presov (Svk) 1/29/1987 6’7/215
    Like most big d-men, Mihalik is a project as his coordination and skating need to be worked on. Despite that, his large frame makes him very difficult to play against for the opposition.

    62 McQuaid, Adam D Sudbury (OHL) 10/12/1986 6’4/200
    McQuaid will never be one of your top guys but he is a very reliable d-man. His strength is in his play in his own zone, which is getting better as his physical game develops.

    63 Anikeenko, Vitali D Yaroslavl (Rus) 1/2/1987 6’4/200
    Anikeenko has seen his stock drop over the year, as his upside is not as high as first thought. However, he does skate well for a big man and uses his size well.

    64 Fritsche, Tom LW Ohio State (CCHA) 5’11/185
    Fritsche does lack some size but makes up for it with work ethic and heart. The best part of his game is his playmaking ability.

    65 Paquet, J.P. D Shawinigan (QMJHL) 1/7/1987 6’3/200
    Paquet is another big dropper in the ratings due to inconsistency. However, he does have all the tools to be a good d-man but so far, the sum of the parts is greater than the whole.

    66 Jones, Blair C Moose Jaw (WHL) 9/27/1986 6’2/195
    Jones has good size and an underrated offensive game, as he has been a PPG player since his trade. The concern with Jones is that you wonder what caused Brent Sutter to trade him.

    67 Hagemo, Nate D Minnesota (WCHA) 10/8/1986 5’11/190
    Hagemo has almost everything you want in a d-man, as he is very solid at both ends and likes to play physical but he does not have the size you would like.

    68 Downie, Steve C Windsor (OHL) 5’10/190
    Downie is not a big guy but he makes up for any lack of size with his heart. He also has a good skill level for a shift disturber that does not mind playing dirty at times.

    69 Sobotka, Vladimir C Slavia Praha (Cze) 7/2/1987 5’10/185
    Sobotka is a 5’10 player that likes to play physical and go into traffic. He also has soft hands and is good defensively though you wish he was bigger and a faster skater.

    70 Brophey, Evan C Belleville (OHL) 12/3/1986 6’2/195
    Brophey has the size and skill to be a top 6 forward at the NHL level but he falls in the rankings because he does not play with the intensity and grit that you would like to see.

    71 LaVallee, Jordan LW Quebec (QMJHL) 5/11/1986 6’3/215
    LaVallee’s game has improved over the last year and he will not be passed over twice in the draft. He is a big guy that plays a good power forward game.

    72 Aubin, Mathieu C Lewiston (QMJHL) 9/18/1986 6’1/190
    Aubin was a solid playmaker this year playing between Picard and Bourret. He plays a smart game but needs to play more physical.

    73 May, Jeff D Prince Albert (WHL) 4/4/1987 6’2/185
    May has taken a large step forward in his development this year, as he has improved his game in all areas. He is a solid defensive d-man with limited upside.

    74 Gragnani, Marc-Andre D PEI (QMJHL) 6’1/180
    Gragnani’s best trait is his ability to move the puck, as he is a good PP quarterback. How much upside Gragnani has depends on his ability to improve his play in his own zone.

    75 Pelech, Matt D Sarnia (OHL) 9/4/1987 6’4/220
    Pelech missed over half of the year due to an injury. For now, Pelech is still very raw in the offensive side of the game but he is good in the defensive side, as he is a very big, strong, physical defenseman.

    76 Mielonen, Juho D Ilves Tampere (Fin) 3/1/1987 6’2/185
    Mielonen is a defenseman that is solid in most aspects; however, you come away wishing he had more to offer.

    77 Bartulis, Oskars D Moncton (QMJHL) 1/21/1987 6’1/190
    Bartulis made a seamless transition from forward to defense this year, which was impressive. He is another d-man that is solid in all areas though none really stands out.

    78 Collins, Dan C Mississauga (OHL) 1/7/1987 6’1/190
    Collins is a solid player that does everything well but nothing great. He plays a pro style game but he will never be more than a 3rd line player.

    79 Roy, Mathieu LW Acadie-Bathurst (QMJHL) 11/14/1986 5’11/195
    Roy has the offensive game to produce at the next level but he will need to put more focus on the defensive side of the game to make it there.

    80 Pyatt, Tom C Saginaw (OHL) 5’11/180
    Pyatt does not have the same frame of his older brother but make up for it with his work ethic and hockey sense, which are the traits that give him a chance to be a 3rd liner in the NHL.

    81 MacArthur, Peter C Boston University (HE) 6/20/1985 5’10/180
    MacArthur plays a good two-way game and is a very good checker. His offensive game disappearing at year’s end and his age drop him in the rankings.

    82 Dupont, Brodie LW Calgary (WHL) 2/17/1987 6’1/190
    Dupont will never be an offensive star but makes up for it be being a tough player to play against as well as a good checker that loves the physical play.

    83 Bass, Cody C Mississauga (OHL) 1/7/1987 6’0/190
    Bass is a great skater, as well as one of the best defensive players in the draft but has limited offensive upside. He is a poor man’s Kris Draper.

    84 Bartanus, Marek LW Kosice (Cze) 2/13/1987 6’3/200
    Bartanus has the size and skill that all teams want in a player but his poor work ethic drops him to the 3rd round. However, he is only 18 and if he does mature, you will be getting a steal.

    85 Lelkes, Richard LW Trencin (Cze) 2/19/1987 6’3/210
    Lelkes has a similar work ethic to that of Bartanus and takes shifts off. Comparing the two of them based on skill, Bartanus is more skilled and is the better skater while Lelkes is more physical and is stronger on the puck.

    86 Syvret, Danny D London (OHL) 6/13/1985 5’11/200
    The 3rd time will be the charm for Syvret as he has made many improvements in his game over the last year, especially in his own zone. If anything limits his upside, it will be his size.

    87 Yandle, Keith D Cushing Academy (USHS) 9/9/1986 6’2/200
    Yandle has good size for a d-man and was very good offensively at the high school level. Like all high school players, it is a big leap in competition to the college level and it will be interesting to see how Yandle handles the jump.

    88 Krysanov, Anton C Lada Togliatti (Rus) 3/25/1987 6’3/200
    Krysanov is a wildcard that could go a lot higher than expected. He is a very raw player, with good size, that shows flashes of what he may become but rarely the whole package.

    89 Lawrence, Chris C Sault Ste. Marie (OHL) 2/5/1987 6’4/200
    There are mixed opinions on where Lawrence will go in the draft, as he is definitely a project that has a long way to go in his game, though his frame and skill level are appealing.

    90 Raymond, Mason LW Camrose (AJHL) 6’0/165
    Raymond’s strengths are his hands, smarts and speed but he has a few things to work on at the college level, mainly his strength as he is only 165 lbs.

    91 Kostitsyn, Sergei RW Gomel (Bel) 3/20/1987 5’11/180
    Kostsitsyn is not as talented or heralded as his older brother is but he is still a very good player with good speed and hands though he does lack some size.

    92 Chorney, Taylor D Shattuck St. Mary’s (USHS) 5’11/185
    Chorney is impressive in the offensive zone as his speed and passing ability make him a good PP quarterback. However, he is undersized and lacks the physical game that you like to see.

    93 Hjalmarsson, Niklas D HV71 (Swe) 6/6/1987 6’1/185
    Hjalmarsson is the best d-man out of Sweden this year and a good PP quarterback due to his passing abilities. He needs more work in his own zone and on improving his skating.

    94 Kalus, Petr RW Vitkovice (Cze) 6/29/1987 6’1/185
    Kalus is a quick skater and good stickhandler that can be selfish at times. He is also a marked man when he plays because he likes to play chippy and a little bit dirty at times.

    95 Madsen, Morten RW Vastra Frolunda (Swe) 6’2/190
    Madsen had a good U-18s where he displayed a good two-way game and leadership abilities. However, his performance for Frolunda this year was a little underwhelming at times.

    96 Quick, Jonathan G Avon Old Farms (USHS) 6’0/180
    Quick has a great last name for a goalie and it could be used to describe his game. Like Schneider last year, you wonder how good he is as the competition level inflates his stats.

    97 Kunes, Tim D New England (EJHL) 2/12/1987 6’1/170
    Kunes has many solid traits including a good skill level and skating ability. He will need to add more weight to be effective at higher levels.

    98 Skorykh, Anton LW Lada Togliatti (Rus) 6’5/190
    For a guy of his size, Skorykh has very soft hands and is a good skater. However, it is his lack of a physical game that keeps him lower in the rankings.

    99 Gogulla, Philip C Kolner (Ger) 7/31/1987 6’2/175
    Gogulla does have a good frame that he needs to fill out, as well as a solid overall game. The main complaint with Gogulla is that he disappears at times.

    100 Bailey, Jason D USA U-18 (NTDP) 6/4/1987 6’0/205
    Bailey is not like his teammates Skille or Stoa as he will not be a top 6 forward if he makes the NHL. Instead, he is a character player that earns his worth by playing physical.

    I really like Latendresse----maybe the another Jason Allison?

    Thanks for the effort, nice list

    That's a pretty good list. I don't see too many huge discrepancies from my views, although I wouild suggest that Hanzal will almost assuredly be picked ahead of Setoguchi, Latendresse and Bergfors for three. Hanzal will more than likely be a top 12 pick, perhaps even top 10.

    Too high (you're not the first to rank these guys too high believe me)

    Bourret Latendresse Setoguchi Bergfors

    Too low:

    Staal(but close) Hanzal Lelkes Laakso Downie Pyatt

    Just my opinion.


    I also wouldn't be surprised to see Mihalik taken by the middle of the second round; the talent level is not so great at that point, thus some team may decide take a chance on him in hopes of him becoming at the very least a poor man's Chara. I'd be surprised to see the Sens pass on him in the second. What better tutor than Big Z for the lad?

    BTW - one of the tools of being a successful power forward is the ability to skate at the NHL level. Thus, Latendresse does not possess 'all the tools' as you stated.

    No Gawlik?

    Where have you heard that Bartanus has poor work ethic? Just interested.

    I really admire people who can put the time, effort and knowledge into a comprehensive list like this. Kudos to you Blue Bullet :handclap:

    BTW, Don't sleep on Stastny or Kohn. Both have gone under the radar IMO.

    I'll definitly look to this when I make a mock draft later on once the order is set. I can't say I know to much about the prospects, but from what everyone else is saying its definitly a good list. Thanks for the effort, must of taken a very long time. :handclap: :clap:

    Because of his recent injury history there are rumours in Germany that Gawlik might opt-out of the draft.
    He didn´t progress that well too. He did okay, but about everybody expected a bit more from him.


    Excellent list btw :)

    Good job! Start working on that 2006 list right after the draft.

    A good list with very reasonable and realistic explanations.

    Bartanus' work ethic has been questioned almost all year by virtually everybody covering Europe. He looks great in the warm-ups though.

    Get ready to be surprised: the Sens traded their 2nd round pick.

    This may be the year that Atlanta sees the light and stops picking oversized defencemen just for their size, or not. They'd be my pick to select Mihalik, although the Rangers might get to him first.

    He almost made the cut. If I did a top 120 he would be in there.

    Brule is perfect where he is rated #6

    LaVallee is a 1986 birth year, not 1985.

    Great job Bullet on the list. Takes considerably time and effort so kudos for passing on your thoughts.

    Where do you place Ondrej Otcenas? He had an impressive U18 for Slovakia. At 6'1 198 lbs. he didn't look out of place against Can. I think he's a mid 2nd to late 3rd rounder.

    Otcenas is another guy on my "late riser" list and I think he could be a 1st day pick.

    He would probably make my top 125 if I did a list that high. I think he could definitely go in the 3rd or 4th round.
