    I have the honour of watching this kid every night. I must say he's a rare talent with exeptional strength, and he's very hard to knock off the puck.
    Rookie of the year last year in the OHL and he just keeps impressing everyone from Scouts, Teamates, and fans. He was named as a starter for the 2005 Canada/Russia Series and he was the youngest starter in the 2005 OHL All Star game (scoreing 2 goals).

    Iam going to make a prediction that he passes Phill Kessel in central scouting for 2006 and is drafted 1st overall.

    Yep thats what my friend said of him.

    My friend compared his skating to shane donovan, but his hands weren't as poor as donovan's at that age.

    He sounds awsome, from what i've heard i'm really amped to see him play eventually.

    I would even give him credit to say he will be a Rick Nash type player in the NHL.

    I'm looking forward to checking him out some time with Barrie.

    Impressive talent... but he won't pass Michael Frolik in 2006.

    Yes he is a impressive talent, one of the CHL's elite. but I still think he will be #1 in 2006!

    The only one who has a chance to pass Frolik is Mueller from the NTDP and its a small chance at that.

    Little will no doubt go in the top five of next year's draft and it would not shock me to see him go in the top three and ahead of Kessel. He is that good of a player.

    2006 draft seems much stronger than 2005 so far.

    that's what they said of the '05 draft. You'll see when all is said and done '06 will be just above average.

    Yeah, with Joensuu, who I heard should be a top player in the NHL, maybe a franchise player, at 5th, this is going to be a very interesting draft. A player ranked 30-40 could be a top 15 pick.

    Kessel, Mueller, Joensuu, Frolik, Little, Sheppard have all the potential to become franchise players.

    Totally agreed. But don't forget Toews, Vasyunov, Breault, Marcinko and Staal.

    pff don't overhype the draft. We all said at this time of year last year that Bertram, Cogliano, Latendresse, Kindl and Laakso were the second coming. They're great prospects but not the next ones.
