Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by Alberta tough, Jun 20, 2011.
Final rankings are on TSN. Sorry was unable to post link.
wow tyler biggs at 15... and brodin at 10?!
Biggest shock are indeed Brodin at 10 and Biggs at 15.
Hope it happens though!
Phillips at 28 was also quite surprising to me.
Khokhlachev in the 40's should draw some serious debate here.
Biggest shocks for me:
- Brodin at 10.
- McNeill at 19.
- Puempel so low.
I would really be interested to see Mac's sources on something like this. Not that I don't believe he has credible resources, because he obviously does...it would just be interesting.
Are they team's head scouts? Or are they some amateur scouts? Hard to say. And how does he determine which ten people he uses for a poll like this? Would love to know these answers.
He seemed very high on Grimaldi.
Lots to like
I think everyone is high on Grimaldi. Everyone wants to see him succeed and many think he will.
Before we spiral down the well traveled route about how people somehow think these are his rankings based on his viewings. THEY ARE NOT.
Was a little surprised at Mayfield, but i guess its fair. Don't agree with Russo being a HM. I think he should be in the top 60.
A thread had a link to the McKeen list and they look eerily similar in the points you mentioned: Both have Brodin very high, McNeill low and Puempel at a similar spot.
I believe that was a TSN scout, not McKenzie himself.
I'm pretty sure that McKenzie gets these rankings based off of talking to the actual NHL scouts from all 30 teams.
As a Ranger fan, I really hope Bartschi is around at 15, and I really hope the Rangers aren't dumb enough to take another low-upside pick in Biggs.
Jonas Brodin, what kind of defenseman is he? I am very surprised to see him at no.10.
looks like one is Grant McCagg. Whoever that is
10 scouts I think.
from what I know, he has really good hockey sense, and has potential to be as good as lidstrom defensively. His offensive upside is the question though.
McKenzie was high on Grimaldi during the TV show is what some are saying here, I think. IIRC, he called him the player he is most intrigued by in round 1.
JAMIE OLEKSIAK at #17.....please habs pick him.
Bob, said 9 out of 10 scouts had RNH ranked at #1.
very surprising given his ability to find the open space and finish.
To me I think it's 10 scouts that he polls, and this Grant guy writes the mini pieces that go up on the website.
Lol the mock I just posted in the contest thread looks nothing like this
He also said the top 9 are almost a lock to go top 9. Makes me sad as an Avalanche fan but there are still good players available.
Nine player draft, eh?
Anyone interested in the 20th, 51st, and 56th picks for a legitimate NHL player or two?
