    I'll say 17. At this rate, he could go much higher than that too. He is having a hell of a start.

    I believe that he will be drafted in the 1st round. If I had to make a bet I would say Calgary 1st round pick, but he could be gone by then.

    Yeah, he really sounds like the kind of player Calgary would love. Hard working, very quick, and some offensive upside.

    True enough. Actually, he sounds a bit like Kobasew, albeit with perhaps a bit more grit. Stalky scorer with a good first step.

    4th overall. He can skate, hit, score, set up, and he works hard. IMO only Crosby, Brule, and Bertram better him.

    He'd be the 3rd (?) player of Japanese origin to go in the first round in the last decade. Paul Kariya and David Tanabe being the other guys I can think of.

    Anyways, I'm not sure where he'll go, but he's having a good season.

    Well, maybe if the draft consisted of only North American players...

    Jamie Storr has Japanese heritage aswell, doesn't he?

    Oh, right.

    Yeah, Storr's mother is Japanese I think.

    He's kidan small at 5'1". I think the Flames will continue with drafting guys 6' or bigger in the 1st round under Sutter.

    What Europeans do you see challenging him right now, and taking that spot away? Kindl's not producing, Anikeenko is dropping fast, Bergfors is always hanging around near 10, and Kopitar is an unknown as of now who is just coming out. Anyone else I forgot? Oh, he's more polished than Zagrapan.

    Yes, excactly. He was described early in this thread as gritty and a good checker, etc. A few more inches makes guy that play that style, that much better. Sutter wants a BIG, young team.

    Look at his recent 1st rounders:

    Phaneuf - 6'2"
    Chuko - 6'2"

    I don't see Sutter drafting a smaller type guy in the 1st unless he had mad skill. If a guy like the one in this thrad is available come 2nd or 3rd round, he probably would though.

    The guy really isn't that small, and he has time to grow still. He is still only 16 I believe.

    Sutter seems to like Big guys who can skate and are very coachable. Setoguchi isn't small and the way he competes makes up for his lack of length. He keeps his feet moving always, so really his reach is never of concern.

    IMO Sutter would love to have a shot at drafting Setoguchi.

    There will be guys that come out of nowhere to go in the top 10. I'm willing to bet the majority of picks 3 through 10 will be European.

    I would bet just the opposite. In general, 2005 is a banner year for North America and a very poor year for Europe overall I'd say. It's early yet mind you, and some guys will jump up, but there are a lot of NA guys who could jump up too (Carey Price and Chris Durand come to mind).
