    2004:
    14 G Devan Dubnyk - I think he will make a great goalie.
    25 C Rob Schremp - Definatly looking for him to make it full time.
    44 D Roman Tesliuk - don't know.
    57 L Geoff Paukovich - don't know.
    112 L Liam Reddox - shows most of the skills necessary to make it.

    2003:
    22 C Marc-Antoine Pouliot - injuries could hold him back, but otherwise, seems to be a surefire NHLer.
    51 R Colin McDonald - seems to be developing well.
    68 L Jean-Francois Jacques - we shall see.
    72 Mishail Joukov - I don't know.
    94 R Zach Stortini - I think he might be great. Speed might hold him back though.

    2002:
    15 C Jesse Niinimaki - he could be a real hit/miss type guy. Either he's going to be great in the NHL, or he's going to flop and stay in Finland for his career.
    31 G Jeff Deslauriers - I'm so bad at judging whether or not a goalie is good enough to make it, but he seems to have the tools to get there.
    36 R Jarret Stoll - already a regular.
    44 Matt Greene - very likely candidate for the NHL.
    79 Brock Radunske - seems to have good potential, but who knows.
    106 Ivan Koltsov - who knows if he ever crosses the pond.
    111 C Jonas Almtorp - don't think he will make it to the NHL.

    2001:
    13 L Ales Hemsky - NHL regular.
    43 L Doug Lynch - looks to be pushing for a spot on the roster now. I can't see him spending his career in the AHL.
    52 Ed Caron - might also spend most of his career in the minors.
    84 D Kenny Smith - might spend his career in the minors.


    2000:
    17 Alexei Mikhnov - if/when he makes it to North America, I look for him to be pretty damn good (ie: not a career AHLer).
    35 C Brad Winchester - needs to piece things together to make it to the NHL. Could very well toil in the AHL for quite some time.
    83 D Alexander Lyubimov - may never cross the pond.
    113 C Lou Dickenson - who? :help:
     
  8. I can't name five, but Ivan Huml will be and Kutlak was(left for Europe.)

    Miroslav Zalesak.....For the Sharks...he was 3rd in the AHL in scoring last year....He has all the tools to be a dangerous player in the NHL, and he always shows it upon his first game when he gets the call up....but then he fades...Could go back to Slovakia though for good.

    2004
    28 D Mark Fistric- On his way to being a solid #3/4 guy
    34 D Johan Fransson- Top 2 d-man in the making, especially on the PP

    I'm not doing the past draft since it's kinda unfair to say Alex Goligoski is going to be a career AHLer when he hasn't even played a collegiate game yet...

    1999
    18 R Konstantin Koltsov- NHL 2nd/3rd line forward
    51 F Matt Murley- NHL 3rd line forward
    57 D Jeremy Van Hoof- out of organization; career ECHLer
    86 G Sebastien Caron- NHL back-up
    115 F Ryan Malone- NHL Top 6 forward

    2000
    18 D Brooks Orpik- Besides being a God he's already an everyday NHLer...
    52 C Shane Endicott- Should make it in the NHL as an average 3rd liner/good 4th liner.
    84 G Peter Hamerlik- The guy played for 3 ECHL franchises and a AHL team last year...not in the Penguins organization. ECHL goalie.
    124 R Michel Ouellet- I personally don't feel his game will translate too well into the NHL. Very good career AHLer.

    2001
    21 R Colby Armstrong- NHL 3rd liner
    54 D Noah Welch- NHL defenseman
    86 D Drew Fata- Career AHLer
    96 D Alexandre Rouleau- Career AHLer
    120 L Tomas Surovy- NHL 2nd liner
    131 F Ben Eaves- NHL 2nd/3rd liner

    2002
    5 D Ryan Whitney- NHL defenseman
    35 D Ondrej Nemec- NHL fringe defenseman
    69 C Erik Christensen- Career AHLer. Monster potential in the AHL but just too soft for the NHL.
    101 R Daniel Fernholm- NHL fringe defenseman

    2003
    1 G Marc-Andre Fleury- Franchise goaltender
    32 C Ryan Stone- NHL 3rd liner
    70 R Jonathan Filewich- NHL 3rd/4th liner
    73 L Daniel Carcillo- NHL 3rd/4th liner
    121 D Paul Bissonnette- NHL defenseman

    2000:

    3 Marian Gaborik- Franchise player, top 6 forward
    33 Nick Schultz- already playing, top 4 defenseman
    99 Marc Cavosie- has the tools but could use some work, if he doesn't start showing potential soon though he'll be an AHLer, top 9 forward
    132 Maxim Sushinski- Awesome Russian player that didn't adapt well to NHL hockey, crossed the pond as soon as he got over here. Failure


    2001

    6 Mikko Koivu- Everything is there, good bet to be an NHL player after the lockout, top 9 forward
    36 Kyle Wanvig- Time is running out for him to make the squad. More than likely be a good AHLer to borderline NHLer if he doesn't make it after this year. Checking forward/top 6 AHLer
    74 Chris Heid- Could end up being a top 6 defenseman but only time will tell. Could end up being like Reitz or could end up being like Michalek. Top 7 defenseman/AHLer
    93 Stephane Veilleux- Already made it. Checking forward

    2002

    8 Pierre Marc Bouchard- made it but the size isn't there. Could fade if he doesn't adjust to the NHL and could be an AHL regular. Top 6 Forward/Career AHLer
    38 Josh Harding- very, very unharold goaltender for the Wild. Just starting in the AHL, and at worst backup in the NHL. Franchise goaltender/backup
    72 Mike Erickson- injuries plagued him but there is still some upside. Probably be an AHLer. Top 9 winger/Career AHLer, out of hockey
    73 Barry Brust- With the Kings now but probably will be a 3rd goaltender on most teams. Career AHLer

    2003

    20 Brent Burns- Top 3 defenseman on the Wild...unless they move him back to right wing and then I could see him stuck in the AHL. Defense: Top 4, RW: Checking Forward/Career AHLer
    56 Patrick O'Sullivan- Top 6 forward for the Wild, could be similiar to Schremp... Franchise Player/Top 9
    78 Dan Irmen- Should make it, had a good year with the Golden Gophs. Top 9/Checking Winger
    157 Marcin Kolusz- Um where the hell did he go? Had a horrible season with the Giants, don't expect him to even try out for camp. Failure, Euro player

    2004

    12 AJ Thelen- Top 3 defenseman for the Wild...Top 3 defenseman/top 7 defenseman
    42 Roman Voloshenko- Could end up being a top 6 forward for the Wild. Top 6 forward/Top 9 forward
    78 Peter Olvecky- Nothing about him...???
    79 Clayton Stoner- I think he'll be similiar to Mitchell but a bit bigger, top 6 defenseman/career AHLer
    111 Ryan Jones- Nothing about him either
    114 Patrick Bordeleau- I believe he's out with an injury but could end up being a good checking forward. Top 9/Checking Forward
    117 Julien Sprunger- Really, really quiet but awesome SWISS player. I'm rooting for this guy to go all the way. Could be a top 6 winger or a checking winger...Top 6/Checking

    For the Habs, Locke, Urquhart, Linhart, Danny Stewart all were 2nd or 4th round picks that I could see being AHLers for good. Mike Komisarek as well. just kidding.

    Hmm...

    Pierce Norton - If an AHL regular at all. (2004)
    Shaun Landolt - If an AHL regular at all. (2003)
    Todd Ford - AHL #1 goaltender (2002)
    Ian White - AHL regular (2002)
    Kyle Wellwood - AHL star (2001)

    No Europeans, they'll probably go back to Europe instead of sticking in the AHL.
