    I am in a keeper league and we draft rookies just as the NHL does, I joined the pool 2 years after it had begun and since then have been able to draft some quality rookies such as Getzlaf,Richards,Pouliot,Price,Wellwood,Jack Johnson,Luv Bourdon,Shawn Belle,AJ Thelene and I have a few more. This year I am again in good shape of adding a few more top quality prospects having 4 first round selections(not sure in which order yet) by trading away some older NHLers such as Recchi,Oniel,Jagr to bolster up my younger talent.

    I am planning on picking Erik Johnson,Phil Kessel,Michael Frolik and Jordan Staal, knowing that I will not have the first overall pick and that I know for a fact that Backstrom will be chosen 1st.

    First round choices are always a given but what I am looking for are steals that I can get later on in the 3rd,4th and hopefully even the 5th rounds. Are there any suggestions?? I can also draft players from previous years as long as they havnt played a NHL Game. Players I have found that I think I can get late are such as Alexander Yasyunov,Nigel Williams and Roman Voloshenko. This is a pool so only OFFENSE counts.

    Opinions??

    Michael Grabner could be a solid pick-up. A slight risk, as he had a relatively poor first half last year on a bad team (Spokane, of the WHL). After the Top Prospects game though? 22 goals in 23 games. He's also one of the fastest skaters in this year's draft.

    Why would I take him? He's got good hands, and in a few years is a likely candidate to play wing with the Sedin twins. Considering the twins could turn me into a 15-goal scorer, a guy with a real nose for the net would rack up points with 'em.

    It's a risk, but something to think about.

    steal voloshenko if you can...

    surprised nobody has him...

    19 year old who put up 30+ goals in the AHL and is a pure sniper.

    on a line with bouchard/rolston or something like that in the future, you're gonna see a big time scorer. Maybe svatos like.

    Bergfors was drafted last year, most of the top rated rookies from last year, whether or not they have played a game have been drafted including bergfors,malkin,johnson,pouliot,brule,toivonen etc...

    Nikolai Kulemin .. Leafs 2nd round pick ..

    He was the RSL rookie of the year and played with Malkin on the same in the Russian league and the WJC and he played with Ovechkin and Malkin on the same line in the recent World Championships ..

    That is your sleeper pick for you ..

    director of drafting Trevor Timmins said he was one of the best skater of the draft and apparently its true for some of people who saw him in prospect camp actually

    Carle has no heart at all. I'm a Carle hater, I've seen him play at least 30 junior games. However, he is skilled offensively.

    My suggestions to watch for are Ryan McDonough (undrafted, so take him LATE), Mathieu Perreault (WAS 6th round), Alex Bumagin (EDM 6th round), and Claude Giroux.

    Cody Fransson

    check out the stats on big, skilled dman Cody Fransson; he will excel on Canada's WJC team this year and his team will be playing in the Memorial Cup again in 2007 (as Hosts); he scored a hattrick in one of the Memeorial Cup games this spring....always a great sign when a player's stats in playoffs are even better than his regular season stats
