Development of the ranking
- Tyler Biggs, Jonathan Huberdeau, Rocco Grimaldi and Daniel Catenacci clearly rising in the ranking.
- Jamie Oleksiak, a totally new player in the top-30.
- Victor Rask, Matthew Puempel and Vladislav Namestnikov clearly falling in the ranking.
- Still not much love for Jonas Brodin or Nathan Beaulieu.
Will be interesting to see where Jurco will stop his fall in this ranking.
Nice to see Jensen move up...
Very pleased to see Mika Zibanejad back on the list.. I will be very surprised if he's not a 1st round pick when all is said and done. He's going to be a fan favorite
Is Grimaldi skilled enough to make up for his lack of size and go top 20?
Wow, there are some crazy streaks.
Briggs, Landeskog, Huberdeau, Strome, Jensen
Ambroz, Puempel, Rask, Musil
I'd be ecstatic if we could snag Puempel with the Flyers pick.
I had Biggs go to the Panthers for some time now, maybe it will happen
still surprised Huberdeau isn't higher
Come on Armia. Keep falling so they Flames can still get you!
Wow really?! I thought it'd be hard to get scheifele with our late 1st but supposedly now we can actually get both puempel and scheifele without moving up? Huberdeau should at least be 6-8. This is flawed imo, but wouldn't complain if it was legit
Two biggest surprises for me are:
- Huberdeau that low.
- Jensen that high.
Has Seth Ambroz fallen of the face of the planet or what? Should have came to the WHL son
He is still ranked in the early to mid second round by most services and sites, so I wouldnt call that falling off the face of the Earth.
Though very disapointing considering many felt he had top 5 written all over him, staying in the USHL is truly hurting his rankings. But I wouldnt worry about him, its not always where a player gets drafted that dictates their future success. He is a very hard working kid, with excellent size and physicality. He also has soft hands and solid vision. He is playing a more well rounded game this season taking on more of a defensive role. Whoever lands him will get a solid kid, and I still think he gets picked in the first round, late first round, but first round none the less.
keep on moving up Rocco, let the doubters continue to look foolish brother!!!
Every new report I see, this kid is in the top 20, not sure when the rest of you will believe this kids true talent and move on from his size.
People keep saying he should have gone to the WHL but if he isn't dominating a lower level league how would that have helped? I'd say there's a good chance he'd be ranked even lower if he went to Seattle and had his shortcomings further exposed. The only way I could see him being ranked higher is if he'd have stayed in high school and was dominating the ridiculously weak competition there. It wouldn't have helped him become a better player though regardless of where he ended up getting drafted.
Better developmental league for a guy with that kind of game to play in. I think he would have excelled in Seattle with Jacobs and company
You can tell they like to go by the flavor of the month... I mean look at how sporadic those rankings are over time.
Strome at 7th and Avs at 7th. Makes sense!
If Burke winds up with the Bruins' and Philly's picks... I want Rattie and Bartschi
Damnnnnnnit Rocco is climbing fast. I hope Ottawa can nab him with Nashville's first, he's going to be a stud in the new NHL.
Damn... Jaskin went from about 40th to 19th...
ItÂ´s kind of interesting how ISS had Jurčo as a mid-round pick for a long time when he wasnÂ´t doing all that good and only had him slowly falling since he had been absolutely struggling and now that he actually has been pretty hot lately they have him fall down four spots.
Jensen deserves his ranking entirely. He has been dominant since the new year and has shown flashes of brilliance. Someone is going to love the way this guy plays much like Skinner last year and see all the potential there is and take him inside the top 10. I have him at #6 right now behind Hamilton if that has any relevance. Star in the making in my books and some team will take him in the top 10.
