    This info is probably on this board somewhere, but it would take me hours to find it, so...

    Crosby is listed as a Centre, but will he remain there as a pro or move to the wing?

    Also, does anyone have rankings for the 2005 draft? Top 5 or Top 10?

    It is a rough top 5

    Im sure someone in here can make you a pretty good top 30

    Go to the search function and search for the 2005 draft, someone in here made a pretty good top 50 i think

    That's amazing Newfie Bruin! Thank you very much!

    Where is the drop-off in this draft?
    Obviously Tier One is Crosby, but who is on Tier Two?

    The first day of the draft is dynamite. Frequently i am shifting players by sometimes 10-15 spots because the skill level is so deep. Teams having lots of 1-3 round draft picks will be very happy 5 years down the road

    Justin Saulnier of the Halifax Mooseheads IMO will be a 2nd round pick for sure. Exciting offensivly, hits, fights does what ever, but he was Atlantics best player at the U17s over Daniel Ryder and Bourdon and guys like that. For the Moose he has been steller in any role he has been given. I still think Denis Istomin will be a lst round pick.

    Just curious about something, I know literally next to nothing about this draft other than the top few forwards, Anikeenko, and the Finnish players (the two D's and Raask).

    Isn't there a player from Denmark who is supposed to be exceptional, Morten Madsen? Or is he a 2006 player?

    I have heard sometihng about him but one Swedish moderator (Predatore i think) said that he would if lived in Sweden would probably be about ranked 5th among Swedish players. Again he is a player i have only heard about and wish to know more

    Ok, I see. I had just heard about him from someone on another Pens board who lives in Denmark. I will have to ask him for sure what he thinks of him when I think of it. I remember he was pretty high on him.

    Madsen is good. I hold Starkov(another danish player born 87) as the better one.
    His parents are from russia, he didnt play U18 WC because of the citizen-papers didn´t go through or something.
    Starkov is extremely good stickhandler with his great technique. He is better than Madsen imo. I have seen both many many times.

    Madsen would not be in my top 5 with Swedish players. But he is very close.

    Nicklas Bergfors is the best by far in Sweden. He made 14 goals in 5 games in U18 league. (5 games = 14 goals and 4 assists).

    He was one of the best players in U20 league for his team and scored a point per game, which is extremely good for being born 87. (31 games = 30 points, 13 goals)

    Im biased(being swedish), but i think he should be in peoples top 10 best players for next years draft. Nicklas got it all. He has an awesome hard and accurate shot, he can skate well, he can hit, he can pass really well, he has great technique, he can play good physical play. Smart. He does what you don´t expect him to do.

    He can do everything really well. He is one of the most fit players ive seen.
    The kid is also known for training extremely hard.

    Thanks for the comments. I'm now recalling more of this old discussion, and I think he mentioned another non Danish player who lives there, must be this Starkov. Is Madsen originally from Denmark?

    Bergfors sounds interesting. I have yet to really hear about good European forward prospects, mainly I head of Crosby, Brule, Latendresse, and Bertram.

    Yup. Madsen is from Denmark originally. It will be very interesting to see how he and Starkov progresses this season. Im hoping Starkov will get a swedish citizenship instead :D

    Swedish forwards born 87 are very talented. Especially a bunch of forwards who shoots right like Nicklas Bergfors (obviously), Fredrik Pettersson, Johan Nilsson, Patrik Zackrisson etc. The only downside is that they aren´t big.

    And then there´s Tom Wandell, Robin Lindqvist, Alexander Sundström and Mattias Ritola for example and some more players of course. Looks good regarding the forwards. Goalies also look very good, Gistedt and Modig.

    But the defense doesn´t look as good unfortunaley :(
