    Bob's rankings tend to be some of the most accurate, because he's not judging the players himself, rather he is making a composite of scouts and insiders opinions.


    Round 1:
    Code:
    1. Adam Larsson (5 1st, 4 2nd, 1 3rd)
    2. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins  (3 1st)
    3. Gabriel Landeskog (1 1st)
    4. Sean Couturier (1 1st)
    5. Dougie Hamilton
    6. Ryan Strome
    7. Ryan Murphy
    8. Brandon Saad
    9. Jonathan Huberdeau
    10. Tyler Biggs
    11. Duncan Siemens
    12. Jonas Brodin
    13. Nathan Beaulieu
    14. Sven Bartschi
    15. Joel Armia
    16. Victor Rask
    17. Ty Rattie
    18. Matt Puempel
    19. Mika Zibanejad
    20. Rickard Rakell
    21. Mark Scheiffle
    22. Marc McNeill
    23. Jaime Oleksiak
    24. Boone Jenner
    25. Scott Mayfield
    26. Nicklas Jensen
    27. David Musil
    28. J.T. Miller
    29. Lucas Lessio
    30. Daniel Catenacci
    
    Round 2:
    Code:
    31. Rocco Grimaldi
    32. Zach Phillips
    33. Joe Morrow
    34. Vladislav Namestnikov
    35. Shane Prince
    36. Tomas Jurco
    37. Colin Jacobs
    38. Brett Ritchie
    39. Adem Clendening
    40. Mario Lucia
    41. Xavier Ouellet
    42. Alexander Khokhlachev
    43. Dmitri Jaskin
    44. Miikka Salomaki
    45. Oscar Klefbom
    46. John Gibson
    47. Phillip Danault
    48. Stefan Noesen
    49. Christopher Gibson
    50. Seth Ambroz
    51. Scott Harirngton
    52. Samu Perhonen
    53. Nick Shore
    54. Stuart Percy

    56. Myles Bell

    Whaaaaaaaaaaat SC at 4? I watched him play yesterday, his shot should not be going 4th overall. He's gonna be a good one. Alas, who am I to judge the messiah Bob MacKenzie? :bow:

    I have a feeling his WJC performance lowered him down the rankings a bit.

    It's wide open, and whoever is picking 4th is in an enviable position of not having to make a decision and just pick up whoever is left.

    lol, im a massive RNH hater, but if Bobby mac says something, I personally still don't think he's a franchise player (basing this on the 6 or so games i've watched of him) but I gained some hope for him after what bobby thinks. Ryan Storme at 6 really surprised me. I like Ryan Murphy ahead of him.

    If New Jersey is picking first, Larsson is #1 no doubt

    Definitely an interesting contrast to Central's ranking. Thanks for the updates!

    I really hope the Sens can keep that top 4 position. I'd be ecstatic with any one of those 4.

    Surprised that Hamilton is there and Siemens isn't. Happy for Strome that he's finally getting recognized, love the guy. Hope the Oilers can get him and Musil somehow.

    i thought Ambroz and Neito were top 5 picks like last year or something.

    what happened?

    And Armia's a steal at 15 imo. he should be top 10.

    Well, then you might end up picking the wrong one and have the humiliation of watching one of the other guys becomes a superstar. If you pick 4th at least you had no choice.

    did they talk much about the prospects as they went down the list? Also will the video likely be put on the tsn website?

    I'd say the same about EDM IMO, but others will not.

    He's the next Lidstrom as far as Swedes mastering the english language.

    Never heard of Mark McNeill. With that size and those stats in the WHL, what's the issue there - skating?

    All 4 look to be bonified stars IMO. It will come down to team needs and preferences.

    6 swedes in the top 20 I'm surprised.
    I was under the impression that this draft was weaker for the swedes relative to recent years.

    as a sens fan, getting landy/couturier + prince would be an amazing outcome.

    One thing I'm noticing, more than other years, is how many late 1992s there are rated in the first round.

    yeah. A lot of the top prospects are late birthdays this year. Could be a sign of a weaker draft.
