    these are 3 of some of best young centerman out there imo,but speaking on point production only do you guy's see one as having an higher ceiling or one putting up more points in there prime.if you could have one who would you take.

    Granlund or Johansen. I can't really deside though, I might tip towards Granlund at the moment.

    I never understand why everyone says that. Granlund is a good 2 way player.

    Is Burmistov first line center material? I have yet to see him play and have a hard time finding anything regarding his ceiling.

    Granlund and Johansen would be above Burmistrov in terms of offensive production, but neither of those two would approach the defensive game of Burmistrov.

    Small, not a great skater or that quick in terms of shiftiness or acceleration. Not sure he can play center in the league effectively with the tools he has.

    I've only seen Johansen and Burmistrov live on several occassions, so I won't include Granlund, but I think Burmistrov will be the better player in 5 years.

    I'm not sure I agree with this: I think Burmistrov will be a better offensive player than both. I think he has better tools. That's not a shot at Johansen either, I really like his game, and I do think it will translate nicely to the NHL.

    He should be a great 2c putting up around 30+40 in his prime, great skater and vision.

    If he hits his ceiling ~60-~70 points a season, with Selke like defensive play.

    Otherwise, he'll still round out a 2nd line admirably.

    I haven't seen too much Granlund, but have seen an OK amount of Burmistrov and Johansen. Personally I'm highest on Johansen, think he's gonna be a really good 2-way C in the NHL, but obviously it's a bit early to say. Granlund is super talented with the puck, and you have to love his compete level, but he's quite undersized (especially if people are projecting him as a C), and and not as blazingly fast as many other NHL midgets, I'm not quite as high on him as some other people are. I think he's got 1st line potential, but not as sure he'll reach it as I am that Johansen will.

    Johansen has a really great, well rounded game, he's got great size, high end puck skills/hands, real good hockey IQ/vision. Could stand to bulk up a bit, could be a bit more physical, and more of a good than great skater, but for the most part I just love his game and have been very impressed by him. I like the Spezza comparisons, and I really think the Jackets are gonna be set at C for a long, long time with the Johansen/Carter combo. Not sure there is a single drafted prospect who I like significantly more than Johansen.

    Granlund's wizardry with the puck is starting to remind me of Datsyuk...some amazing talent in that one.

    Granlunds skating looked really good at prospect camp. Not a major concern to me anymore. And shiftiness is the name of his game. He didn't have problems in whc against nhl players. As he gets stronger, I see him being the best out of the three.. maybe Johanson

    I think Johansen is a notch above in my books right now. But it's tough to say all that much when we haven't seen him playing against men like we have with the other two. I think the ceiling is higher there, but which of the 3 actually reaches their ceiling is another matter entirely.

    I think it's almost impossible to know at this stage, because all 3 players possess certain traits that are elite. It's reasonable to say all 3 could be NHL stars because they all have some part of their skillsets which can be defined as very high end.

    Johansen would seem the same safe choice. He seems to have less flaws (Size being one) than the other two. Whilst he has undeniably Offensive skills, his overall game is also very enticing. The other two seem to have an issue here or there that Johansen does not. Granlund isn't the biggest guy in the world and his speed has been questioned. Burmistrov also has the size problem and it's difficult to know whether he will truely be able to handle the physical grind of the NHL on a daily basis.

    On the other hand, both Burmistrov and Granlund have special qualities. Especially Granlund ; his stick work and IQ are special. His stats are incredible and in historic terms for U-20 Finnish players, he's nearly untouchable. Players with his type of vision don't fail very often IMO.

    Nobody says "hi" back, and he awkwardly leaves the room.

    My girlfriend said "hi" to me recently, but that's not relevant to this thread either. This is a thread about Burmistrov, Granlund and Johansen, not RNH.
