    Agreed. That's Sergei Shirokov, with 17pts in 17 games... in the RSL. :clap:

    Juraj Simek in the 6th round looks pretty dang good too, with 18 pts in 11 games in the WHL as a new rookie.

    In the first round, I think that Trevor Lewis and Claude Giroux are excellent picks. Giroux is ripping it up in the Q.

    A steal in the 4th could be Derrick LaPoint. Currently has 8 points in 6 games in the USHL, best Dmen in the USHL. There have been alot of good reports about him.

    1st - Semen Varlamov
    2nd - Ben Maxwell (but in the long run I believe Jesse Johenssu will be the man)
    3rd - Brad Marchand
    4th - Bobby Hugues
    5th - Juuso Puustinen
    6th -Sergei Shirokov
    7th - Matt Marquardt

    Kulemin will be the steal of the 2nd round. He was projected by many to go in the 1st.. . He already has like 16 pts, 8 goals in 17 games in the Russia's Pro League this season.. And that's a tough league.

    7 - Billy Sauer - HM Logan Pyett, Benjamin Breault

    Based on where I thought they would go at draft time.
    HM to whos performing well this year so far and gut feeling.

    * Backstom at no. 4, hard to consider a steal, but very scary talent. I believe he will turn out to be top talent of the draft, think Jaromir Jagr

    he probably would have if he was a year younger. he is a late bloomer. and to be picked in the second round is pretty good for a 20 year old imo. i picked him #33 overall in my leagues entry draft. and i feel confident that it will turn out to be a good pick.

    It was a good pick by the Leafs, because they know more of what to expect from him. Safe picks feel good sometimes.

    How can any player be picked as a steal? I would you will need to wait 3 years.

    After, 1,200-odd posts, I would think you'd know logic and reason don't always apply here. Of course, it is way to early to get an accurate assessment of this draft. It takes five years, IMO, to get a full assessment. I wouldn't seriously start assessing "the steals" of a draft until after three years. However, some people like to have their fun and I guess there's nothing wrong with it, just as long as the opinions are tempered with a bit of humility.

    Many players take a huge leap in development at 18, especially Canadian Hockey League players who are in their third year. I guess it's the same for many NHLers. The third year is a bit of a breakout year. The first year after a draft is where the separation starts to happen. Good scouting is separated from the bad.

    I Agree withm, nobody is a steal at this time, it's way too early!!!
    just because a player is doing well in the juniors doesn't he'll end up a good nhl player.

    (Hab fan here so won't include any habs even though I think Fischer and Maxwell might become something special, maybe steals of their round....Carle maybe but not enough to be the steal of his round since Maxwell is in it already....)

    At least two mentions for Maxime Lacroix (drafted by the caps). Can anybody explain? I know absolutely nothing about him, so whats the reasoning behind him being a steal? Is he playing better? More ice time? better Linemates this seaosn?
