    The more I watch Kaliyev, the more I'm disappointed in him. His competitiveness and intensity is terrible. He is not involved in the play and relies to much on other to create scoring chances. I don't think his points total will translate to the pro-level. He is also terrible defensively and he won't get involved in board battles. Outside of his goals, he stays invisible all game. I first thought I was watching all his bad games, but I've talk to some scouts and they also agree with me. I still understand why some have him in the 1st round. He has an amazing shot and some great finishing skills. There is just some better and more complete players out there.

    Jeez cajkovic still in top 20, you seem to be the only one who thinks he will still go in first round. This season is gonna be absolutely brutal for him and the CHL’s worst team, Saint Johns. Only way right now I can see him going that high is big WJC performance, but even that there is no guarantee he will be on the team

    I don't want to be too harsh on Gutik because he doesn't exactly get a ton of ice-time at Loko but he must have been incredible at the Hlinka because I'm not seeing surefire first round talent from him much less 4 spots below Dorofeyev (even if he is almost a year older than him).

    I still think Broberg is overrated. I may be proven wrong down the line but I see a whole lotta speed without a whole lotta IQ. I think there is a large contingent of people banking on him being the next Karlsson just because he skates well.

    Other then that not bad rankings. I don't see Holmstron or Gutik as first rounders but to each their own. I'm higher on Pelletier and lower on Kynazev. There are a few others but those are the major ones.

    Also who does your graphics? That looks sick.

    I bet both could beat Swift Current.

    Both Josh Williams and Nicholas Robertson have had very disappointing showings so far this year, and shouldn’t be rated as high as they are right now, IMO.

    Thomas Harley should also be mid-second round at the latest.

    Other than those two points, an awesome list.

    Can we petition the CHL for a worse teams version of the memorial cup to solve this debate? Maybe the Dishonorable Cup?

    In general, I'd pick the team from the QMJHL, because generally the bottom of the Q is attrocious. No other league relies as heavily upon Canadian kids who got passed over in their respective leagues (honestly, look at how many failed potential OHLers end up in the QMJHL, compared to the opposite). But, this year, I really have a hard time seeing a team being worse than Flint.

    Swift has no chance. They lost a record number of players I swear and are a shadow of their former selves. This was a team that went to the Memorial Cup last year. They lost like 10 players. No CHL team has suffered the way Swift has.

    At least Flint has Vierling, Keppen and Dellandrea and St. Johns has Lawrence and Cajkovic to look forward too. Swift has nothing. They traded away all of their players now and all of their prospects before and their 2019 1st and their 2020 first. BTW their 2019 1st could have likely gotten them Savoie. There is no team in worse shape than Swift and it certainly is not close.

    Worse shape long-term, yes (although, the way Flint looks right now, if I'm a top kid I'm commiting to a NCAA school and not reporting). This Flint team may be the worst OHL team I've seen. They are both inept. Luckily, the OHL saves teams from themselves by banning the trading of future firsts.

    Pelletier and Poulin and overrated in my opinion. They’ll be late 2nd rounders.

    I've talked to other scouts and they all agree with me that Cajkovic is the consensus 2nd best prospect out of the Q. His stats might not look really good, but his play on the ice is still great. He plays well at both end of the ice and he not only showcase a great potential, he also looked like the that of player every coach want on their team. He is super effective. Honestly, I don't think the Sea Dogs are as bad as their stats says. They manage to fight very well against big maritimes team like Halifax and Moncton, but usually fall short in the end of the 3rd.
    He was incredible at the Hlinka-Gretzky. I only saw him once then, but he still looked great. His numbers might not look exactly great, but I was still impressed with his play. He is still super young (almost a 1 year younger that Dorofeyev) and I see a lot of potential in him. I still can see why some won't have him in their 1st round.
    I agree, I think Broberg is overrated, but I still think he is a top prospect. I had my doubts with his Hlinka-Gretzky performances, but he continued his great work in the Allsvenskan. His game is indeed really far from Karlsson.
    I totally see why some think Gutik and Holmstrom are not first rounder. Same for Pelletier and Knyazev. I really liked both of their game and it's Knyazev's great potential that made him rise a bit on my list.
    I always do my graphic on my own, so I will take that as a compliment ;)
    Thanks ! Williams and Robertson are having slow starts indeed and that's why they fell a bit on my list. I still don't want to overreact, but they need to step their game up to stay where they are, because other prospects are pushing behind them. I really liked their game before, so I gave them a pass for now.
    I haven't seen Harley, so I didn't want to list him in my top 93 without knowing his potential. I'm looking forward to watching him.
    Totally agree !
    Personally, I think they showcased enough to at least be early 2nd rounder. Poulin great shot, puck protection and two-way game and Pelletier amazing speed, great vision and solid intensity make them 1st round imo. That's stay my personal opinion though.
    I really like Seider hockey IQ and offensive instinct. He sees the play developing and can position himself well. His play with the puck is great with his good skating and vision.

    @Andy Lehoux, I think you do a very good job. I always try to read what you have to say.

    I have a few minor disagreements, but your rankings are the best I’ve seen from any draft experts so far.

    I keep reading great things about Korczak and I see you have him later that I expected. What are his main issues?

    Great job! You really put a lot of work into these and I'm impressed! :) My main questions are around Seider, Knyazev and Cajkovic. With their slow starts offensively this year, do you think they're worthy of being that high?

    Thanks ! I'm curious, which player ranking do you disagree the most with ?
    I don't have any real issues with his plays, but idk, I didn't see as much potential in him as in other defensemen like Thomson and Koster. He was solid defensively, but I was underwhelm with his offensive play. I might have seen his worst game though.
    Thanks ! Points total haven't been great for Seider, Knyazev and Cajkovic, but their play on the ice stays good. For example, Knyazev probably create more scoring chances for his teammates than any defensemen in this draft (well maybe equal to Honka), but those dangerous opportunity haven't result in goals yet. Being on a somewhat bad team doesn't help Cajkovic. He still stays super effective in every plays he makes and he's solid defensively. Seider does play in a man's league, so his time on ice hasn't been very high. That might be an explanation to his rough start. Overall, I don't want to overreact from slow start especially in points total, so I mostly ranked players without looking at their offensive productions.
    Thanks !
