    It was Ovechkin in 04. Crosby in 05. Now is there anybody in the 06 draft class that sticks out head and shoulders above the rest. How many years can you have an unreal first overall. Will the first overall in 06 pale in comparison to Ovechkin and Crosby.

    Watch Phil Kessel, he's a really, really special player and a great guy.

    Jesse Joensuu is one who has the chance to go first in year 2006. He looks very special player to me, but give him some time to developement and maybe he could be a first finnish player who has drafted to first overall.

    Pretty sure hes Finnish, so somewhere in Finland. I could be wrong though, I dont know much about the 06 draft. Thats a few years away. :)

    Most likely the first choice in '06 will pale in comparison to Crosby.
    Kessel has way too many weaknesses to be even mentioned in the same breath as Crosby.

    He played Ässät A-junior team and he made last year points 7+9=16 in 28 games (Lauri Korpikoski 36 12+8=20). He also played 5 games in Ässät men's team and he was youngest player ever who has played FNL if i remember right. He is 6.03 tall and his weight is something around 195. He was born late 1987.

    I don't know if he is heads and shoulders above the rest, but I believe Vasyunov is '06 eligible.

    Cool, Porin Ässät.
    Stats are good and so the height for a 87 born. I thought he was from Oulun Karpat since they're used to have a great crop of young talents (Pitkanen, Kukkonen and so on), I'm a fan of that team btw :yo:

    Players such as Ovechkin and Crosby come around every ten years or so (that's why is awesome to see two potential superstars in the vein of Lemieux and Gretzky come in back to back years) and it is doubtful that 06 will have such a marque player.

    In North America, I would keep my eyes on Toews, Kessel and Little.

    I don't know why, but when I hear reports about Joensuu, I always think of Mats Sundin.

    Big kid, who is always around the puck. Always making a smart play. Hard to get off the puck.

    I've never seen tape of him, but from reading accounts that's just the image I get in my head.

    Vasyunov will start to emerge at the under 17 tourney next month and pull away from the rest. You never hear about the russian prospects till this tourney.

    Thanxs. He plays C or W?
    What about Vasyunov is there any links? Is he a center or winger?
    If those two are centers 2006 will be a year loaded with #1 centers.
