    RNH remains their number one.

    I really like their rankings overall, but their are some things that stand out for me.

    - I still think the top 4 are totally interchangable, so I won't pick that apart.

    - Beaulieu is too high, but I still see him as a top 20, especially if he plays well in the playoffs.

    - I don't like Stefan Noesen at 50, should be much higher.

    - I think Nieto is a late first rounder.

    - I doubt a goalie goes as high as they have John Gibson.

    - Bartschi will go higher than late in the first.

    I see more than 2 kids from the WHL going in the 2nd round.

    Colin Jacobs not even in the Top 60?
    I know he was a bit falling, but that is surprising.

    Beaulieu way too high. He goes top 10 even top 15 I'll be so surprised. His game just screams "nothing special"

    Only 2 from the WHL, AJHL, BCHL combined would be the lowest in a decade......perhaps ever.

    2010 - 6
    2009 - 3
    2008 - 6
    2007 - 4
    2006 - 6
    2005 - 10
    2004 - 7
    2003 - 6
    2002 - 3
    2001 - 10

    I will have to think about it.

    Definitely see Oleksiak going earlier then they have him. Won't say it's a guarantee, but if he goes after #20 someone is getting an absolute steal.

    When it comes down to it, the kid is still a massive project that won't ever be a Chara.

    I like this top 15. No Tyler Biggs until 16 as many have in the top 10. Didn't drop Matt Puempel that much just because of his injury. Beaulieu ahead of Siemans? Not sure about that but can see them hitting on 13 or 14 of this top 15 for sure.

    Somehow, I'd suspect more than 5 of the top 15 are D-men though, probably add in one or two other dmen at 13-15...maybe Musil and Oleksiak.

    Grimaldi has talent but cant see him going top 20 and perhaps not even first round except maybe to a team with multiple picks and late ones like Toronto (although probably not Burkes king of player).

    Figured Phillips would be in the 1st round instead of 37 but I wouldn't mind seeing the Leafs grab him up with their 2nd rounder.

    Doubt Oleksiak goes that far, I think some GM will take a chance simply due to his size and he can skate well.

    somehow jensen and oleksiak are in the 20's, I hope to god that either of them fall to the 20's because their my main targets in this draft(and zibanenjad too, which is a pipedream). I honestly don't see Namestnikov, Gibson, or Bell as 1st rounders.

    It's going to be a total crapshoot in the top10.

    I heard today from someone with serious sources that at least 3 NHL scouts have Strome and Hamilton ahead of Couturier. And Murphy's stock is falling because of his current concussion and the concern that his height might lend itself to incidental contact to the head, which is not a good thing for someone who's just had his first concussion.

    Strome isn't surprising but Hamilton is a bit of one. I think the 3 lower centers after Nugent-Hopkins (Strome, Couturier, Huburdeau) could go in any order.

    And Murphys already back from his concussion and has easily been Kitcheners best player in the gameshes been back. Very mild concussion , and the same could be said for Crosby, who is also 5'11 that height lead to his concussion. Don't see why height is a problem.

    Yeah he said they're giving Strome the edge over the other two because of the strength of the OHL. With Hamilton, they keep coming back to his size. That size can't be taught, and when coupled with his skating ability it give's him some flexibility as to different roles he could play in a top4.

    Im telling you right now, if Couturier falls outside the top 5, the team @ 6th sprints to the stage.

    I'd be happy to take Ambroz at 58. Real happy.

    Agreed, Noesen should be much higher. I brought this up before when FC has updated their rankings, but they have never spelled Noesen's name correctly. Not that it's a big deal, but it tells me that they are not looking at all the players on their list and putting any thought into it. Probably just moving a few players around here and there.

    Our 2 most reliable "insider" bloggers have said the Sens are a team that is very high on Strome. One of them actually said 2 of our scouts have him at #2. Also said Couturier falling pretty hard...but said Hamilton not a big deal to us either.

    Good list, I'm hoping the Bruins have a chance at Hamilton, this kid plays and all around good game.

    Definitely true, but that said in terms of his upside he's right up there towards the very top of the draft. With his size/skating package I think he's going to go earlier then many are expecting.

    Coulda said something like that about Fowler at 4,5,6,7,8,9,10....

    I'd be surprised if he fell out of 5 though.

    Yeah, Strome is getting a lot of love. It doesn't surprise me that Ottawa wouldn't be all that into Hamilton, what with all their young talent on D in Karlsson, Rundblad, Cowen, etc... But I would be surprised if they passed on Landeskog. Seems like the Sens have a thing for the Swedes and who would be a better mentor for him than Alfredsson?
