    They usually make the announcement about a week before the game. At least that is when they did it last year.

    Three quarters of the defense and almost half of the team from the WHL? Is this a fair indicator of where the talent is spread out nationally?

    I guess this is why one scout said he has spent a majority of his time in the west this year.

    How are the rosters selected? Are players like Skokan and Tanguay, better prospects than say like for example an Ondrej Roman, or a Mark Santorelli.

    Well it is a Top Prospects game, so yeah they are considered better prospects.;) I think NHL Central Scouting picks the players for the game, and it's as the name states, who they consider to be the top prospects in the CHL. In the end it is still only one group's opinions, but I think most of the high-end players for the 2007 draft playing major junior should be on the roster.

    NHL GMs or Heads of Amateur Scouting send request lists to CSB (actually to the NHL office who, I believe, passses them on to CSB). The players selected thereby represent a composite of these NHL team "want to see" lists.

    Yes, the WHL is stronger prospect-wise this year, and the OHL is down.

    Santorelli is a year older than other prospects. Almost all prospects in the game every year are entering their first year of eligibility for the draft.

    Where the hell is Dana Tyrell - they picked Bowman over him? Surprised not to see Subban, Spaling and Legein from the OHL either; all three are being highly considered as second-round talents by pro scouts and McKeen's staff alike.

    Gratchev over Spaling? Valach over Legein? I suppose if you like your NHLers to be inconsistent *******.......Disappointing to see every "hyped" European invited over the like of Tyrell....not the way it's going to happen at the draft.

    Skokan, Gratchev, Valach, etc., will not be pucked before Tyrell unless NHL scouts suddenly decide that intensity, determination and character (in addition to skill) are no longer needed at the NHL level. I'll take a gritty 5-11 Canadian with comparable skill over a perimeter playing, 6-1 euro prospect every day and twice on Sunday. If Gratchev ends up selected before Tyrell I'll be shocked and pissed.

    It might be worthwhile to note that the 40 invited players may not be the 40 best, but rather the 40 that teams want to see.

    A few years back I was asked for my input into selections for this game with one NHL club. There were several players we had ranked closely. Some, we were quite familiar with, we had a good grasp of their games. Others had been up and down all year, there was no consensus among scouts about these players and we wanted to see how they'd handle this big stage. So we chose the players who we wanted more clarity on over a few other prospects that we thought may actually be more solid picks.

    Good point. The teams may also want to "hide" a couple of guys, so to speak.

    Well, Philly will probably have a lottery pick, and I think Aliu will likely fall to the second or third rounds. Maybe further? Anyway, I think to keep Steve Downie happy they'll stay clear of Aliu.

    I thought DiDomenico from Saint John would have a chance at cracking this line-up. Oh well.

    I was hoping Philippe Garnier (Rimouski) would have made it, since I might not get to see Rimouski this year and he sounds like a very interesting prospect.

    Surprised that they only invited one of the Bashkirov's.

    I didnt' expect Simon Lacroix (Shawinigan)to get invited but I was hoping he would cause I doubt I'll get to see the Cataractes this year.
