    good work, the Q looks real strong this year. maybe 2 top 5 picks

    where do you put Asselin? could have some teams kicking themselves for not picking him last year with a 7th

    i don't like Asselin very much, he's a nice Q player but i dont see him being a nhler in the future. he's small and slow. Like i said he's going to be a real good player in the qmjhl and good move by Chicoutimi of getting him for Louis Leblanc

    3 years of Asselin vs 1 year of Leblanc is a good deal for the sags since Leblanc didnt want to play anywhere else than Montreal

    Thanks for posting the list. I can't really dispute any of it, as it looks pretty solid. Lower down on the list it is more of who you like, as it is really wide open. I think the top five could all go in the first round, with 6 through 9 going in the second (not sure about Archambault). The rest will go third round or later in my opinion, with 10-19 being the most likely to go drafted. After that, I'm not sure if the rest will get picked.

    If I had to make a top ten list, it would look like this:

    1. Sean Couturier
    2. Jonathan Huberdeau
    3. Tomas Jurco
    4. Xavier Ouellet
    5. Nathan Beaulieu
    6. Zack Phillips
    7. Christopher Gibson
    8. Phillip Danault
    9. Olivier Archambault
    10. Yannick Veilleux

    I see Couturier going first, even with Huberdeau on the rise. I really like Jurco's talent, even though he's been sliding a little bit. I think Ouellet and Beaulieu could be interchangeable, but I like Ouellet's potential a bit more. I can see Phillips going next after that as the final big name from Saint John. I put Gibson ahead of Danault only because I can see someone wanting to pick up a goaltender rather early, but I really like Danault as a prospect. I had trouble figuring out who to put in the last two spots, but thought Archambault has played his way into the top ten this year and no one else on the list stands above him. It was between Veilleux, Leblanc, Beaupre and Le Sieur for the last spot.
