    Hmm. I like Edmundson, but top ten in the WHL? I had him 18th in the dub in my last ranking.

    For my WHL rankings I have St. Croix and Forsberg instead of their Wotherspoon and Edmundson.

    I also have Adam Lowry 11th in the WHL, much higher than anyone else has him I'm sure.

    You will be interested to note that Edmundson generated as much discussion as any of the prospects in the rating meetings.


    Here is my guess on the rankings (the numbers are my own rankings).

    QMJHL Top 10
    1. Sean Couturier, Drummondville - 1
    2. Jonathan Huberdeau, Saint John - 7
    3. Nathan Beaulieu, Saint John - 16
    4. Zack Phillips, Saint John - 32
    5. Tomas Jurco, Saint John - 42
    6. Phillip Danault, Victoriaville - 63
    7. Xavier Ouellet, Montreal - 77
    8. Logan Shaw, Cape Breton - 100
    9. Ryan Tesink, Saint John - > 120
    10. Scott Oke, Saint John - > 120
    QMJHL Comments
    No surprises for me; the NHL liked Tesink and Oke better than me at the mid-terms too.

    OHL Top 10
    1. Gabriel Landeskog, Kitchener - 4
    2. Ryan Strome, Niagara - 5
    3. Ryan Murphy, Kitchener - 6
    4. Dougie Hamilton, Niagara - 8
    5. Mark Scheifele, Barrie - 15
    6. Brandon Saad, Saginaw - 17
    7. Nicklas Jensen, Oshawa - 19
    8. Boone Jenner, Oshawa - 26
    9. Shane Prince, Ottawa - 34
    10. Vladislav Namestnikov, London - 35
    OHL Comments
    What, no Puempel, I guess we know who is going to be the winner of the 2011 Jeff Skinner Award for Stupidest NHL Final Ranking (assuming his injury is not career changing). Other than not, no real surprises although I suspect Khokhlachev and Catenacci are not too far behind No’s 9 & 10.

    WHL Top 10
    1. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Red Deer - 3
    2. Duncan Siemens, Saskatoon - 10
    3. Mark McNeill, Prince Albert - 14
    4. Sven Baertschi, Portland - 18
    5. Joe Morrow, Portland - 22
    6. David Musil, Vancouver - 23
    7. Ty Rattie, Portland - 25
    8. Myles Bell, Regina - 52
    9. Joel Edmundson, Moose Jaw - 72
    10. Tyler Wotherspoon, Portland - 116
    WHL Comments
    I guess I would have liked to see Micheal St. Croix somewhere in the mix but other than that no real surprises - the NHL liked Wotherspoon much more than me in the mid-terms as well.

    US West (USHL, WCHA, CCHA, Minnesota High Schools)
    1. Tyler Biggs, USNTDP - 11
    2. J.T. Miller, USNTDP - 27
    3. Scott Mayfield, Youngstown - 30
    4. Rocco Grimaldi, USNTDP - 31
    5. Connor Murphy, USNTDP - 41
    6. Mario Lucia, Wayzata - 46
    7. Seth Ambroz, Omaha - 49
    8. Joe Labate, Holy Angels - 60
    9. Sean Kuraly, Indiana - >120
    10. Andy Welinski, Green Bay - >120
    US West Comments
    I am a bit surprised with the omission of Nicholas Shore as he had a good second half and perhaps Michael Paliotta. Sean Kuraly was ranked high by Central Scouting in the mid-terms as well. As for Andy Welinski, I haven’t been following him so maybe someone who is close to the USHL can comment on him.

    US East (ECAC, HE, Eastern High Schools)
    1. Jamieson Oleksiak, Northeastern - 20
    2. Adam Clendening, Boston University - 40
    3. Matt Nieto, Boston University - 54
    4. Patrick Koudys, RPI - 75
    5. Colin Sullivan, Avon Old Farms - 90
    6. Philippe Hudon, Choate-Rosemary - 112
    7. Rob O'Gara, Milton Academy - 115
    8. Petr Placek, Hotchkiss Academy - >120
    9. Stephen Miller, Noble High School - >120
    10. Matt Killian, Delbarton ->120
    US East Comments
    No real surprises but you can count on Michael McKee (Kent High School CT) to be in the mix a way higher than most are predicting - 2nd-3rd round which would put him close to Nieto.

    Canadian Juniors/Midgets
    1. Destry Straight, Coquitlam
    2. Joel Lowry, Victoria
    3. Michael King, Westside
    4. Joey Baker, Trail
    5. Sam Mellor, Trail
    6. Brian Bunnett, Wellington
    7. Mark Luzar, Burlington
    8. Ryan Renz, Vernon
    9. Kevin Tansey, Cumberland
    10. Brennan Serville, Stouffville
    Canadian Juniors/Midgets Comments
    I am not really following any of these prospects. And yes, Joel Lowry is Dave Lowry’s son and Adam Lowry’s brother.

    For the last two years, many on here talked about Shane McColgan as a top-10 pick. At this point, I have to ask, will he even get drafted? He has fallen more than anyone from what I can tell.

    His production went down a bit, despite better +/- numbers. The knock on him has always been size and consistency. There were many that thought, and hoped, U.S. players i.e. Saad, Ambroz, and McColgan, would all go top-10. It looks like none of them will. Saad having the best shot obviously.

    WHL player of the week for the first week of the playoffs...so...yes, he will be drafted and yes...he is still on radars.

    With another strong series he could still be a 2nd rounder.

    His size is a concern to me going forward, but he sure is a slick player.
