    Thanks, I'm surprised about Kopitar... from all I gathered, I was figuring Kopitar a top 10.

    He's a bit of a project and far from a sure thing.

    I can see a team taking a chance on him in Top 10. He probably is one of the few guys in the draft with tons and tons of potential. He's special.
    Another guy who i think is very underrated is Bergfors. He should go Top 15 but he wont, and i hope the Leafs can grab him later on :).

    I like your list Blue! I am going to add my impressions next to yours...After the top 4 (Crosby, Brule, Johnson, Ryan) it is a crapshoot in my opinion. The depth of this draft is 10-50, with less talent at the top than in some years. A couple of guys are enigmas to me:
    1. Marek Zagrapan He has adapted well to NA game so far. Not sure why but I have questions about him.
    2. Jakub Kindl He has performed well but seems to lack the grit to excel at the NHL level. If he finds it, teams will be kicking themselves for not choosing him (see Schultz last year.)
    3. Luc Bourdon He seems to be very talented and underrated.
    4. J. P. Levasseur Some really like him and some don't. He could still go high.

    So you're saying this draft isn't really all that great?

    No I am not. The top4 are all legitimate stars. What I am saying is that this draft's strength is that you could get a guy at #30 who has the talent of a #10 pick. The top end talent does lack a bit of lustre, in my opinion.

    I'm confused, are you saying that someone who's worth a #1 pick can be picked up #30? That doesn't signal a lack of top end talent to me.

    That's not really what I am saying. What I am saying is that the difference in talent between the top few guys and say the 30th pick does not seem to be that great. In other words, a #30 who reaches his full potential could be as good as a #10. The top 4 are all going to be stars with Crosby eilte.

    right I see. Yeah that is true. Staal is projected anywhere from 10-25, that is a wide gap.
