    Some that I know quite a bit about, other than Crosby and Brule...

    -Andrew Cogliano: Small, small, small (5'9'') but talented. Great skater, both straight away and turning etc. Puck handling skills second to none, maybe only Crosby, Brule, and Bertram are better. I've heard he's just as good as Crosby at handling the puck at ''top speed''. Good competetor, but size will be a downfall, and no matter how many points he puts up in the OHL next year, dont expect him to go top 10.

    -Dan Bertram: Again, size is an issue, but skill sure as hell isnt. Maybe the fastest skater (NA) in the draft. One knock I've heard from scouts against Bertram: He's soft. But I dont see it. Shoe-in top 5 pick in 2005.

    Brock Bradford: 5'10'' 160. Another little bugger. Came into his own playing with Brule at the Canada U17's. Shows great poise every time he steps onto the ice. Breakaway speed with great stickhandling. Possible top 10 pick, probable top 20.

    Devin Setoguchi: A leader. Playing on one of the worst CHL teams in history as a 16 year old, and puts up over 40 pts. Decent size (6'0'' 185), and is a great hitter. I've talked to a scout that said Setoguchi will be a top 10 pick, easily.

    Mike Gauthier: A monster that is still growing. Showed a lot playing with the Raiders this year, solidifying their defence corps. What more do you want in a 6'4'' defenceman that can skate, hit, fight, and shoot the puck? Probable top 25.

    Guillaume Latendresse 6'2" 215 lb.

    Good two way player, likes to hit. Could go second behind Crosby.

    I read at a danish hockey website (www.hockeymania.dk) that CSS has already a preliminary ranking over the 2005 prospects out (there were 7 Danish players on the ranking). Unfortunately I have not been able to access my e-mail for several days so I can't get hold of my login-info to http://centralscouting.nhl.com .

    Anyway, kugel, if you have a username and a pass there, you might be able to found some info on that site.

    Romy Elayoubi, 6'1 184lbs, Right Wing, Chicoutimi (QMJHL)
    -Struggled somewhat adjusting to the Q and got very few minutes on a deep veteran Chicoutimi team. Has good size, he is a very good skater and has a tremendous player. A year ago he was considered top 5 and 2nd best from the Q. He has a tremendous work ethic and hart, and with a year under his belt he will break out big time this year and IMO will prove to be a Top 10 pick.

    Latendresse is 5 months younger than Brule. At 6'2 215 he might make crusher dust of that stone in the next year.

    Is size really an issue with this kid? He's listed at 5'11 and 175lbs at 16 yrs old going on 17. Unless the Camrose Kodiaks are exagerating his height and weight I think he is just fine. If he grows another inch or two he will have absolutely no one commenting on his size.

    There are people more knowledgeable about draftees than me, but from what I've read he sounds like he's going to be a top pick. He's great offensively, and even though he isn't all that big (which he still has plenty of time to grow) he isn't afraid to play physical. I've also read that he could be captain material. Don't know about his awareness defensively, haven't read anything about it yet.

    I'm looking forward to the 2005 draft. The Sharks should be able to aquire some great talents, With are 1st, 2nd, and the Flames 2nd. Plus the draft, if the players continue their devolopment, should make the 2004 draft look silly.

    Everyone knows about Crosby and Brule. Here are some of the other players. Plus Jack Skille, and Paul Stastny are going to be 2005 eligible.

    Guillaume Latendresse would be my third choice, I have seen him play. He could chalenge for the #2 spot overall.

    Then there is Chris Durand, a friend of mine in Seattle just raves about the guy and he sounds like he's the real deal.

    I personally love defensman Mark Staal of the Wolves, I have seen him while watching Ehelechner and he's been hyped into my ears the past year from a friend as well.

    I really really really like Finnish defensman Teemu Lakkso, he's an amazing player.

    F Alex Bourret should go top 10, I have seen him play. He actually was on par with Picard for the games I've seen.

    F Christopher Gawlick could end up being the best German born player. I expect him to be in a Sharks uniform some day with Sturm, Goc, and Ehrhoff :) and mabey Patzold and Ehelechner.

    2005 draft crop is looking very good.

    Kari Lehtonen: Born 16.11.83, Helsinki, Finland

    Jokerit Helsinki Jr. A SM-sarja 00/01 - 32 2.45 0.911

    Tuukka Rask: Born 10.03.87, Savonlinna, Finland

    Ilves Tampere Jr. A SM-sarja 03/04 - 26 2.24 0.936

    I now thats thous stats not all, but i have to say that Tuukka Rask is real deal. Also we have Teemu Laakso who i think go TOP 5 2005. Teemu Laakso is better offensive what Joni Pitkanen was that age, but Pitkanen was bigger then, what Laakso is now.

    Finlads -87 born players are crazy i have to say, i think it´s better what our -83 was that age. Teemu Laakso, Tuukka Rask, Jesse Joensuu, Miika Lahti, Jonas Enlund, Oskar Osala.

    I'm sorry I don't know the guys name, but I remember reading that their was a pretty good power forward prospect (I think he was about 6'3 200) that could go in the top 10. Can anyone give me his name and some info?

    Specify league, town and nationality and then we might have something!
    And about Elayoubi, I used to watch him play in Atom and boy does he have skill. He might have a breakout year next season

    I don't know if Phil Kessel is eligible but he has breakaway speed and a pure goal scoring touch.. in my opinion a top five talent
