    For Portland, St. John, and Oshawa Fans...

    This draft is a little bit unique, from what I can tell, in that a lot of the top prospects play on teams with a ton of other top prospects eligible for this draft or for the draft previous. It can make side-by-side comparisons a lot more easy to make than in a typical draft year.

    I’d love to hear input from Portland Winterhawks fans on how guys like Rattie and Baertschi stack up to one another and to guys like Johansen and Neiderreiter.

    For Oshawa Generals fans, I would like to hear the same input on the likes of Christian Thomas, Nicklas Jensen, Boone Jenner, and Lucas Lessio.

    For St. John and the Seadogs, I’d love to hear how Huberdeau, Phillips, Jurco, and Galiev stack up to one another.

    If you are a person lucky enough to watch one of these three teams on a regular basis, I’d really, really appreciate your input here. There are four players on each team that I would really like compared and contrasted.

    If fans of each team could fill in the rankings with the four players from their teams, I think we could all gain some valuable insight.

    Some rankings…

    Offensive Zone:

    Forechecking(cycle, board play, going to the net):
    1.
    2.
    3.
    4.

    Shot(all around; accuracy, strength, quickness):
    1.
    2.
    3.
    4.

    Hockey Sense/Awareness(knowing where to be and where others are)
    1.
    2.
    3.
    4.

    Playmaking(can you get it to the open man at the right time)
    1.
    2.
    3.
    4.

    Other Two Zones:

    Backchecking(more willingness based ranking)
    1.
    2.
    3.
    4.

    Hockey sense/Awareness(more ability based ranking)
    1.
    2.
    3.
    4.

    Specialty Teams:

    PP(overall effectiveness):
    1.
    2.
    3.
    4.

    PK(overall effectiveness):
    1.
    2.
    3.
    4.

    Intangibles(hitting, hustle, heart, and huevos):
    1.
    2.
    3.
    4.

    I would be so grateful for anybody who has the insight on these teams to share their opinions here. Thanks so much in advance.

    Hope this helps ... Feel bad like I'm not giving any love to Jurco lol

    Jurco is ranked lower but is a fine player but I find him to be very streaky ... He's the type of player that will score 5 or 6 goals in 3 games than go dry for 3 or 4 games.

    I've only been able to watch 20-30 games of Sea Dogs this season, so I'll just have to agree with this. Only thing that I'd change would be hockey sense, where I'd put Jurco over Phillips and maybe also Galiev.

    Interesting the differing opinions. I really appreciate you all helping out. No Portland fans out there, huh?

    Got one here but I only made it to about 10 games this year....short on money....so I don't feel I can really give you a good opinion.

    One simple thing imo is pretty much every category, Johansen and Nino will be 1-2 in some order. They are just better than the other two.
