    The U-18 Tournament being on this week, I would be curious to read which Euro players would be available for CHL teams next season.
    In general will they prefer to play in Europe or will they want to come over?
    I wonder what effect the NHL lockout might have on the best prospects.
    Also I would like to know which ones are the best ones.

    These are a few guys I think will be heavily persued for the CHL Draft.

    Czech - David Ruzicka, Jiri Tlusty, Michal Frolik (doubtful he will come), David Kveton, Ondrej Fiala

    Denmark - Morten Madsen

    Finland - Oskar Osala, Teemu Laakso, Jesse Joensuu

    Germany - Thomas Pielmeier, Max Brandl, Philip Gogulla

    Russia - Vjacheslav Buravchikov, Anton Krysanov, Denis Osipov, Denis Istomin

    Swiss - Alessandro Chiesa (won't come, 2 year contract with Ambri), Leonardo Genoni, Jannik Steinmann

    Slovakia - Lukas Bohunicky, Tomas Marcinko, Juraj Mikus, Richard Lelkes, David Buc, Marek Bartanus, Martin Domian, Peter Hubinsky

    Sweden - Niklas Bergfors (doubtful he would come)

    perhaps Canucks draftee Alexander Edler, who will not see any significant SEL ice time in MODO with three defenseman of the same age being ranked ahead of him.

    I think it's also pretty unlikely that a guy like Joensuu would come over.

    What about from Latvia? I've heard their '06 crop has some quality prospects.

    If someone could talk Jiri Tlusty into coming to North America and more importantly the CHL I would love it.

    He's my favourite player outside of the top 3 for the 2006 draft.

    Would it make sense for Morten Madsen to come to North America based on the depth of Frolunda on both the SEL and J20 levels? Or would he be likely to see increased playing time next season?

    I really don't think Laakso would leave HIFK, as long as King let's him play. If he doesn't get any elite league ice time, then he might consider it, but I really doubt it.

    I'd like to see Bergfors play in the dub, but I doubt he will. :(

    Frölunda had an enormous depth this season, it was almost ridicolous. No matter what(if it was box- or powerplay), they used all four lines whole games and crushed everyone silly.

    They will be really strong next year as well, but not as strong as this year i think. I can´t see Sebastian Karlsson, Richard DeménWillaume nor Anton Axelsson doing their last year as a junior in Frölunda J20. So I think Madsens ice time will increase a bit.

    But i can´t understand why everyone is so extremely high on Madsen, as Starkov(the other danish player in Frölunda J20) is better and has bigger potential imo.

    Can you comment on Starkov's game and why you think he is better than Madsen?

    Starkovs technique is by far the best in the league. He has amazing stickhandling which he handels through full flight like really few can. He has decent size, and reads the game well with good passes and has a nice scoring touch. Id take him over Madsen every day of the week. He is just better, and has imo more potential. He averaged a point per game in an extremely deep team. Madsen might be 6'1" but he is weaker than Starkov as well(who is 6'0")

    Did the Ottawa 67s pick up the first pick in the CHL import draft in the Chris Hulit-for-Peter Tsimikalis trade?

    I thought that's what I heard on the radio today.
