    Curse you -you beat me to it.I read the first two picks and thought-I hope nobody's
    posted yet.He must've had a lucid dream last night that brought on this "great
    revelation". :D

    Nice list Monster .
     
  5. He's so good, he has to be drafted twice.

    Nice list. Skille at #12 and some other guys (Red Line) have him at #4. :dunno:

    Doh! #49 is where I have em'. Insert player X at #66 I guess. :dunno:

    To be honest, I know jack **** about him.

    Yeah, Redline seems to be in love with him (Woodlief's on a bit of crack). I just dont think he's better than anyone in my top 10 - it's arguable yes. O'Marra gets the slight nod over Skille at this point. Huge U-18 for O'Marra.

    I agree with him, GB should be the clear cut #2. For those who saw them both this year, does Gilbert still has a stronger shot than Crosby? I used to agree with that, but Crosby improved his shot power tremendously. I couldn't imagine that Brule still has a stronger shot at this point, but we never know.

    Brule has the strongest slapshot in the draft. Crosby may have a better snapper at this point - I'm not sure.

    Have you seen Crosby's slap shots at the end of the regular season and those he fired in the playoffs? It was really sick.

    He was used at the point in playoff (Powerplay) for his slap-shot.... that means something.

    I think you have Brian Lee too low. I doubt he'll be a 2nd rounder.

    Good list except that Tuuka Rask at 20 is definitely too low.

    You'll please nobody with lists but I'm telling ya you made a nice list.

    I wonder where's Sasha Pokulok? because I really don't take he last till' the second round.

    Lee , Rask are a little bit two low.IMO , Rask will go before Levasseur.Skille will never go after O'Marra with the kind of hype he's receving from Woodlief. :biglaugh:

    Dylan Yeo is garbage. I'd be surprised if he is drafted.

    I'd also be surprised if Yello****n or Kris Russell went as high as you are suggesting. I think both are longshots because of their size.

    It's a solid list, and you'll never satisfy anybody, so the real value in the feedback is hearing about the lesser knowns that you weren't entirely sure about...

    So, with that in mind, I'll say that Radek Smolenak and Adam McQuaid are both way too low. They should both be in the 30 to 45 range. Smolenak was fantastic for Kingston in the second half, maybe their best player because Anthony Stewart seemed fed up, and he has good potential. McQuaid is underrated and the gap between him and Staal is not that huge.

    Good effort though.

    Cogliano might be a bit too low for my taste but I guess it's fair considering he plays in the Ontario Junior A and is quite small.

    A lot of Sudbury Wolves fans would tell you he's maybe even better than Staal. Personally I'd say there is no gap between them. Another guy who is right up there with them is Johnathan D'Aversa. A lot of Wolves fans actually like him better than both Staal and McQuaid. Hopefully some team will give him a shot as well.

    Yeah, I heard some good things about McQuaid but I wasn't quite sure where to put em'. Almost as good as Staal? Maybe now - but not nearly as muhc potential.

    As for Price/Rask/Lavasseur there really isn't much between these 3. Price is slighty the best IMO. You shouldn't be upset with Rask behind Lavasseur - I bet you didn't think Dubnyk would have gone before Schwarz. Like I said, its a toss up at this point between Lavasseur and Rask. Vincent isn't too far behind either.

    Your right McQuaid probably doesn't have as much potential as Staal. He should be a very solid NHLer though.

    I can't imagine any NHL team would take Yello****n before Shirokov.
