    Wondering who could be some of the sleeper picks of the 2002 or 2003 draft that could be in the NHL during the next hockey season?

    guys drafted late in the 1st round to 2nd or later rounds....

    any thoughts?

    Shea Weber seems like a good pick by Nashville at 49

    I do not know about playing next year, but it looks like Shea Weber would be a higher pick this year...

    Review his profile:
    Won the Memorial Cup
    Led Kelowna in points in the Memorial Cup
    Memorial Cup All-Star team
    Potential member of December's WJC team

    6-3, right handed shot,

    Named best stay-at-home defenseman in the WHL by his peers (ahead of Coburn)
    Named the most underrated player in the WHL by his peers

    What the scouts say:
    ''It's my understanding that Weber is a little further along in terms of physical maturity and size [than Klein'],'' Peterson said. ''We're always looking for a 6-3 defenseman. It would be hard to make that step up, but why not give him a look?''

    Last season the Isles picked up Colliton and Gervais rather late; they should both be given a shot to make the team.

    Id say #60 MA Bernier is more of a sleeper than Kesler.
