    Don't think the team that pick #10 has the luck that Reinhart still will be there.

    i think you should take a look at Nikolai Prohorkin 1993 and born same day with Ovechkin:) very skilled and sized( 6.2 and 180) with good stats in MHL. i think its not fare that we dont see him among TOP 60

    Scoutman1 whats your opinon on Pontus Åberg (lateborn 93)? He seems to be rare kind of swedish player, a true sniper. Was very impressive in the Ivan Hlinka tournament. Other lateborn 93 swedes that migh be in the mix 2012 is Mikael Vikstrand (Mora) and to a lesser degree Emil Lundberg (Södertälje). Vikstrand looks super solid and allready plays against men in SEL-2, Lundberg is really big (6´3) and produces well on a crappy team in Superelit, but might have an issue with his skating.

    Reinhart needs to be higher. In my mind he is right there with Ryan Murray in regards to WHL defenders. And both of them should be higher on your list.

    I have never seen Pontus play in my life so I can not give you anything on him...

    I put Matheson so high because of his skating and puck carring ability, people do not really know too much about him yet, but his skating is better than anyone I have seen in a long time, he is IMO just as skilled as Derrick Pouliot but a way better skater, bigger and more poised.....

    Also I have some guys ahead of Murray because I have seen them all play, and to me after Reilly, Pouliot get another year under there belts in the CHL I think they might take a step ahead of Murray, that is just my take on it.

    I have Reinhart lower for no reason, he is an amazing talent, I would like to see him improve his skating a bit more, and the games I did see of him I would like to see him use his size and physical play more.

    Ebert I have 3rd because to me he is everything, the most offensivly gifted dman in the draft and a very good in his own zone and strong too...I think he is a super skilled player, and a potential franchise dman in the making, with Grigorenko being Russian and Yakupov and teams might not want to chance on them too...I would not be shocked to see Ebert go 1st overall if teams get scared of the russian factor.

    Seeing that you have Marcantuoni above Galchenyuk, can you give a brief reasoning as to why?

    (No sass from my end, just seems that Galchenyuk has gotten the vast majority of the hype and Marcantuoni hasn't received much pres)

    I like Marcantuoni's speed, physical play, and all around play, he is a great all around player with explosive offensive ability, Galchenyuk is imo amazing hockey player himself and could vary well pass Marcantuoni in the long run, I love both players, I just like watching the all around game of marcantuoni and how he is able to play in any situation on the ice with explosive speed and offensive ability. Galchenyuk like I said there is nothing wrong with him as a player I think he is a future star player with excellent hands with the puck, shooting ability and good playmaking.


    to another quote above I do see this being a great draft like 2008...and people will think this guy should be ahead of this guy like Reinhart should be higher but IMO sometimes it is hard to move a player up who in other drafts would be higher because the guys ranked in front of him are just as good IMO.

    I think this is or could be the all time best defender age group what we have had ever in Finland.

    Yes it is and he is not the only one -94 born Finnish defender who has potential to be in 1-2 round pick. There is also at least Ville Pokka 182 cm/6'0" tall and weight is 85 kg/187 lbs. He play regular in Kärpät Jr. A SM-liiga and have made points 22 game 1+11=12 which are best point in every under 18 defender's point in that league. He has also play 1 game in FNL against men and Mestis (second highest league in Finland) 3 game and have made points 0+3=3. Now he plays international tournament in Finnish U17 team. Ville Pokka

    Then we have at least:
    Mikko Lehtonen
    Mikko Vainonen
    Markus Kojo
    Otso Rantakari


    And 2013 draft:
    Rasmus Ristolainen
    Jimi Kuronen

    The one "big name" WHL defenseman for 2012 that I haven't seen live yet. Sounds like a real player.

    I agree, next season they will be talking about him being a Ryan Ellis clone. The way this kid can skate and move the puck is unreal. Once he puts on some strength/weight to improve hit shot and physical game, he will shoot up the rankings.

    4 assists tonight against the USA.

    The kid is built like a brick house, is mean and has a lot of skills. The kind of package GM's love.

    Wow.

    I have been blown away by Griffin Reinhart and Ryan Murray in the WHL this year, so it will be very very tough for Dumba to get ahead of those two in my books. But it sounds like he is up for the challenge.

    Troy Bourke is a player that seems to be overlooked. Watching him in games this season he's been a solid contributor for the cougars ( 21 points in 34 games and a +8). I believe he has five points in five games for Pacific. He isn't really that small for his age; he will most likely grow at 5'10 170. I would go so far as to say he is just as good as Brett Connolly at 16', but with a better defensive game.

    Another 2 assists for Dumba today against Quebec. Finishes the tourney with 12 points.

    According to the Hockey Canada website he finishes 1st in points for all skaters :yo:

    I can’t comment on any but the Dud players as I haven’t seen much of the others except Koekkoek. I think you have the Dub dmen right for now even with Dumba’s big numbers at the U-17. Reilly has the biggest upside, but seems to disappear at times. He was the same at Notre Dame but got better late in the season. He has some great games and then looks pretty ordinary in some.
    Do you realize you have Winther as the top forward in the west? Good luck on that one.

    In my opinion Reilly probably has the least pro upside of the "big four". (Reinhart, Reilly, Dumba, Pouliot) and Ryan Murray leads that crop at this point.
