  1. I am going to start a list of players I know have opted out of this years draft (some have shown up on various Top 100 lists). As I am late as usual starting my draft work I'm sure there are others of you that can add to this list.

    Also please include on the list players that are on CSS but who have already been drafted in the HFNHL as there are always a dozen or so.

    Matt maybe you can make this a sticky post and kill off that Sim Manager Needed post :)

    Anyway, here in no particular order are the opt-outs I am aware of (source McKeen's).

    Joe Barnes
    Paul Stasny
    Keith Yandle
    Anthony Aiello
    Alex Berry
    T.J. Hensick
    Joanathon Sigalet
    Matt Greene
    Steve Birnstill
    Matt Duffy
    Jeff Caron
    Tom Gorowsky
    Jared Hummel
    Linus Persson
    Tobias Viklund
    Anton Belov
    Adgur Dzhugelia

    G Martin Houle (Cape Breton) will also be drafted by some smart team who saw what he could do before Marc-Andre Fleury got sent down. Hasnain beat me to the punch in drafting him in the HFNHL last year, but I scooped him up on the cheap in a mid-season trade, so he's Columbus property now.

    According to the newssection on centralscouting.nhl.com Dustin Slade, G19, also failed to send in his papers in time and is therefore inegliable in the draft.
     
  12. Curse that Emerson for not checking his list.

    Teemu Nurmi ES114 is on the Columbus prospect list.

    Mea culpa, mea culpa... I'd forgotten that he'd not been drafted last year. Of course, having had a generally unimpressive season, there's every chance he won't be drafted this year either, so I doubt any of you will be too upset about him not being available for you! :shakehead
