    Anybody have any players in mind for the 04' draft that you feel will succeed beyond where they are tabbed to be picked? My sleeper is Adam Pineault

    Lauri Korpikorski? He seems to raise in everyone's ranking day after day.

    I like Korpikoski alot.


    My sleeper pick, is Martin Karsums. This guy could hit the first round, and could be the steal of the draft. A great player.

    I also think Mike Green could end up being the best defensman in the draft.

    Blake Wheeler. May take 2-4 years, but I think this guy is going to be a good one.

    Yeah I think this Malkin kid has some potential..

    C'mon guys lets be a little more adventurous.. :)

    Personally Im curious to see who takes David Brown, Viktor Alexandrov and Evan McGrath. All were very highly rated at one point.

    Kevin Mailhiot was touted as a possible first rounder a while back and now he has completely slipped off CSS's list. I heard he got a concussion in international play and has never been the same since. Obviously his 21 points in 45 games with Drummondville wasn't very impressive at all but maybe he will snap out of it and get moving in the right direction again.

    I'll go out on a limb right now and predict that someone will take a chance on Boris Valabik in the top 15 and maybe the top 10.

    Blake Wheeler... I will bust out the cooler in the parking lot if he's taken with either of the Canes second round picks.

    Good call...some love for another Picksburgher. I'm hoping the Pens grab him in the 3rd round and get Wheeler at #31.

    McKeens doesnt even have Lewis in their top 110 prospects and say hes the most overrated player in the draft.

    I'd forget about it. It wasn't his first concussion, if you see what I mean.

    I actually met him at school like two or three months ago, he was back in his previous town (before Junior hockey) and had stopped playing hockey because of his injury. I don't want to be pessimistic, but it sure as hell doesn't look like he has NHL-upside anymore. It's sad to see him in such a situation since he's a great guy...


    As for sleepers, I'd go on a limb and say Evan McGrath and Viktor Alexandrov. They were both seen as amazing prospects two year ago so they might have a lot of untapped potential.

    Mailhiot may retire due to head injuries.



    As for mikhail yunkov, I was under the impression he opted out, no?


    As for some sleepers,

    David Booth- I was always impressed with his game, power stride
    Klye Klubertanz- small for a defensemen, but offensively gifted
    Kevin Potter- small but fast, headed to a great program at UM
    Stanislav Lascek- needs to work on skating but offensively gifted
    Jan Steber (although I think I'm alone in thinking this),
    Philippe Roberge, not talked about much at all, might be a good late pickup
    Fredrick Naslund (I am thinking I'm also alone with this one, never saw him, just going off what I read), big LW, although his U-18 performance should drop him a bit
    Robbie Earl (his size is a bit of an issue, but he's fun to watch)
