    Well; based on what I've gathered from a few scouts and taking into account some of Bob's selections and the like, I've complied my top 30 list for the draft.


    1/ Johnson
    2/ Staal
    3/ Toews
    4/ Backstrom
    5/ Kessel
    6/ Mueller
    7/ Brassard
    8/ Little
    9/ Tlusty
    10/ Okposo
    11/ Sheppard
    12/ Stewart
    13/ Frolik
    14/ Sanguinetti
    15/ Bernier
    16/ Summers
    17/ Wishart
    18/ Grabner
    19/ Anisimov
    20/ Varlamov
    21/ Mitera
    22/ Irving
    23/ Helenius
    24/ Alexandrov
    25/ Foligno
    26/ Mathias
    27/ Forney
    28/ Maxwell
    29/ Zharkov
    30/ Swan

    After the top 25 it really gets difficult - I'm sure every team's list will be significantly different at that stage. Don't be surprised to see a couple of big surprises towards the end of the first round - maybe someone like a Denis-Pepin being selected just like Mihalik last season.

    Name your top 30 - I'll save this thread and we'll see who ends up closest on draft day. The winner will be rewarded with heaps of praise.

    Good top 30, the only one I'd question profusely would be Stewart at 22nd - care to explain your reasoning?

    huh - if this rate of lists continues, I may up with the most accurate.

    Feel free to list your top 30, no one is going to bite.

    Most people are already doing that on the Mocks board, non? Look there? :dunno:

    This isn't a mock. I haven't been to the mock board for weeks; after seeing about 100 or so i had my fill. ;)

    This is the prospect board, and i am asking for people's top 30 prospects. :dunno: Didn't see it as being in the wrong place.

    28. Chris Summers
    29. Claude Giroux
    30. Cory Emmerton

    Neither Wishart or Sanguinetti are in my top 30 because I had no interest in drafting them, as I don't like either one as a prospect. I feel Wishart's lack of speed will hurt him as a potential two way defenseman, and I just don't see the potential in him. Sanguinetti while great offensively, I feel just isn't good enough defensively. I don't think he has the brains. Mckeens recently stated that they feel he should be moved to forward, and I think that would actually be an interesting move.

    But... if every team takes the BPA, as they all say they do, isn't a mock the same as a list of top-30 prospects? ;) ;)

    It's not a mock. It's rankings, and I agree that Staal is ranked higher than he should be because of his name. Here's my top 30:

    1) Johnson
    2) Backstrom
    3) Kessel
    4) Toews
    5) Staal
    6) Little
    7) Mueller
    8) Brassard
    9) Okposo
    10) Frolik
    11) Tlusty
    12) Sheppard
    13) Berglund
    14) Saguinetti
    15) Williams
    16) Forney
    17) Wishart
    18) Helenius
    19) Stewart
    20) Summers
    21) Fischer
    22) Bernier
    23) Emmerton
    24) Foligno
    25) Grabner
    26) Mitera
    27) Irving

    It's not that big of a drop if you ask me. He's ranked top 10 by CSB, true, but I think CSB just has a hard-on for prospects with size.

    Turnbuckle seems to be asking who we THINK will be picked top 30. So, this is not my personal top 30 but the players who I believe will go top 30 overall, although I'm not thinking of each individual team's likely picks at this point.

    Good lists so far - just looking for people to project the top 30.

    Who knows what the final top 30 will be? There are likely going to be several trades, and there are likely going to be teams that skip over goalies. Disregard who is picking and name the top 30 players.
