    Who do you think it was?

    I think it is a dead heat between Hennessy, Mirnov, and O'sullivan
    Naturally poeple would vot for Bergerone, but I think he is some what if an over achiever

    My projection for these players:

    Hennessy: 03-04 59gp 40g 42a 82pts
    NHL Future: 25-30 goals 2 way 2nd line center

    O'sullivan: 03-04 53gp 43g 39a 82pts
    NHL Future: 30-35 goals 2nd line sniper

    Mirnov: 03-04 54gp 11g 11a 22pts
    NHL Future: 20-30 goals Dynamic 2nd liner for the sens

    How can Fritsche not be included in the top 9 :dunno:

    In a lot of the 2003 redrafts in another thread they have him going in the first round. I'm not saying he was the biggest steal, but he should be on the list.

    My pick is O'Sullivan

    O'Sullivan
    Bergeron
    Fritsche

    I picked "other" in protest of Fritsche not even being on the list.
    Had Fritsche been on the list, I would've went with Bergeron. Can't argue with what the kid has done.

    Bergeron is my pick for the second round.

    Way out at #83 in the third round, Steve Werner looks like a find, given his World Juniors showing.

    After just one season in the NHL, I'd have to vote for Bergeron. I'm confused by your "projections": how many goals and points did Hennessy accumulate last year? If he scored 40 goals in 59 games, he was far and away the most-prolific scorere in the NHL last year. That means he would've scored 53 goals or so if he played the full season. If he's that prolific a scorer, why do you think he'd only average 25-to-30 goals per season as he matures?

    I'm assuming those figures for Hennessy are incorrect.

    No, the figures are right, you just misunderstood what he was saying. Those numbers for Hennessy, O'Sullivan and Mirnov are from the QMJHL, OHL and RSL respectively. Below is a projection of what he feels each player could do in the NHL at their peak.

    No offense here, but this isnt a very good poll. Your missing some good prospects suchas Pushkaryov and Eriksson. The obvious answer is Bergeron.

    i agree and missing howard too. i guess it shows how deep this draft was becuase we're naming half the players in the draft. so many teams got good players in the 2nd round, it's ridiculous.

    Thanks for the clarification. The fact that Bergeron was producing at the NHL level makes his accomplishments more impressive. While the others may prove to be great pros, there is no guarantee that they can cut it in the NHL.

    bergeron is the obvious choice, but you're dropping the ball on missing kevin klein and shea weber. they've been two of the best defensemen in the entire CHL for most of the year.

    Bergeron easily, but I wait to see O'Sullivan in the NHL thought.

    Tim Ramholt was probably more deserving of a mention than several of the guys in this poll.

    The thing is, there are around 15 second round picks who are seen as real steals now becuase they had a great follow-up season. Hennessy, Mirnov, O'Sulivan, Klein, Weber, Ramholt, Carle and a few others, then of course Bergeron...it was a loaded second round. The draft was so incredibly deep that there were first round calibre players literred all over the second round. Hell, my Senators got a first round calibre player in Igor Mirnov at 67th overall. He goes and puts up 11 goals and 22 points in the Super League when guys like Andrei Kastsitsyn aren't even playing regularily in that league. Even then, Mirnov is hardly ahead of any of the rest of these guys.

    This is why last year was such a fantastic draft, and as a result, 2004 looks so bad.

    Sorry I didnt put all these people in the poll, I am not fermiliar with every prospect on every team
    thats why I put the "other" choice, incase something like this did happen

    these are just the prospects that first came to mind

    Bergeron is the obvious choice simply because of the truly unbelievable year he had and how much praise he was receiving.

    But I went with my heart still, and chose Patrick O Sullivan. He's possibly the most talented offensive player I've ever seen at the OHL level. Thats including guys like Spezza. He controls and dictates the play when he's on the ice, and a scoring chance occurs nearly every time he takes a shift.
