    I've been doing some research on the late 1st, early 2nd players and I think it is safe to say some guys have dropped off the map and others have become bona fide prospects. I have been stuck deciding how I would group the following guys I consider the biggest movers either up or down. Let me know what you think of these rankings and whether I'm out to lunch or right on. I regrouped them based on who has the most value now:

    1. Jon Merrill
    2. Charlie Coyle
    3. Christian Thomas (Maybe I'm rating him too high)
    4. Austin Watson
    5. Jared Knight
    6. Kevin Hayes
    7. Brock Nelson
    8. Dylan McIlrath (Too low?)
    9. Jarred Tinordi (Too low?)

    (Honorable mentions to Smith - Pelly; Petrovic). I left Bennet and Dalton Smith right off due to my belief they would be out of the 20-40 slots if done today.

    I think Kuznetsov is such a consensus 5-15 pick I didn't bother putting him up here.

    Thanks for the reply. Interesting about the later guys... Kind of odd you just put 1-30 though, haha. Good information after that though, thanks.

    To be honest, all I have read about the guy is good stuff. I am neither a Jersey fan nor a avid follower of college hockey. That being said everything I read was the guy was doing great. I'm worried now seeing Jersey fans telling me he sucks, haha.

    Justin Faulk won a National Title with MD, outplayed the vast majority of USA defenders at the U20, and made his professional debut last season for Charlotte and looked raw but projectable. I think in a redraft he goes in the 1st round pretty easily.

    It's all jokes. Devils fans are quite high on Merrill after his stellar freshman season. Top prospect in the system behind Larsson.

    Charlie Coyle is definitely the biggest riser of them all. He was a man playing against boys last year and this was is IN college hockey.

    Schwartz
    Hishon
    Petrovic
    Thomas
    Faulk

    Should also be risers.

    IMHO, Toffoli would be a first rounder if the draft was held today.

    Charlie Coyle as mentioned above, Jon Merill, Justin Faulk, Jeff Skinner were all surprises.

    McIlirath, Connolly, Campbell have been the only disappointments. But it's too early to write ANY of these guys off.

    2010 seems to be very good draft year, many risers but not too many droppers.

    I would add Sheahan to the list of disappointments simply because we didn't see the offensive upside yet. We've heard plenty of excuses for his lack of production. He's in a defensive system, playing a defensive role, against much older players, and it takes much longer for power forwards to develop. All of it amounts to nothing more than excuses. His stock has certainly fallen since the draft because he hasn't shown that offensive potential that had him going in the first round.

    If the draft were redone, I actually think that both Pulkkinen and Jarnkrok would be drafted before him.

    Among the swedes:

    Out of the second round picks, Calle Järnkrok, Patrik Nemeth, Oscar Lindberg and Johan Larsson looks like future NHL-players if everything goes well. Järnkrok might become a impactplayer. Wännström and Rensfeldt are questionmarks at this point.

    Risers among the later rounds.

    Nashvilles 5th round pick Patric Cehlin had a good jwc and a nice SEL-season. Could be a future NHL-player

    Ny Rangers gth round pick Jeper Fasth went from playing in the junior league to the first line of his SEL-team, emerged as a real NHL prospect.

    Dallas 5th round pick John Klingberg went from being a player nobody had heard about to being a SEL-player, played in the Jwc (and will probably play there 2012 too) and even a game with the national team. A true project since he is very skinny but a legit prospect.

    Torontos 5th round pick Daniel Brodin played some for the national team, decent chance of becoming a roleplayer at NHL-level.

    This thread needs more Zucker.

    Drafted #59 and looks about equal to Coyle (less NHL ready, but higher upside). Thankfully, they're both part of the Wild.

    Some other non-first round risers.

    Tyler Toffoli 47th - Ripped up the OHL this year. Would at least be considered a late first round chance.

    Jason Zucker 59th Overall- Had a great year for Denver, putting up more than a PPG (not an easy task in the NCAA, especially in his first year).

    Curtis Hamilton, Ryan Martindale and Martin Marincin (Edmonton) all had successful years.

    Greg McKegg 3rd Round Toronto - Proved his draft eligible season wasn't a fluke, put up the third highest goals in the OHL behind only Thomas and Toffoli and tied with Yakupov.

    Max Reinhart 3rd Round Calgary- Improved from his draft eligible year, putting up almost 30 more points playing only one more game. Not as high a riser as some others but he improved.

    Maxim Kitsyn 6th Round LA - Had a PPG OHL playoffs with the Majors and a pretty successful WJC with Russia. With his size and the talent he seems to possess, plus him joining the Majors this season, its hard to imagine he drops to the 6th if the draft happened again.

    Mark Stone 6th round Ottawa - Tore up the OHL similar to Toffoli, putting up 106 points, albeit in more games. Big riser but the rise in point totals from last year to this season was enormous. Needs to prove it wasn't a fluke.

    Josh Nicholls 7th Round Toronto - Put up 87 points and was a plus 50 in the WHL this year. 39 point jump, also needs to prove it wasn't a fluke but seemed to use his size well.

    Brandon Ranford 7th Round Philly - Similar to Nicholls, he put up 87 points, 21 more than last season but in less games. Little on the small side but showed steady improvement in his three years. Defense a little suspect but as a 7th rounder he rose a lot.

    I am very interested in McKegg but being a Leafs fan I feel I may be too close to my prospects to give an unbiased view. Is it fair to say McKegg can project to a second-liner?

    Stone has been a real surprise for Ottawa. And Marcus Sorensen could break out next year.

    Culek on the other hand has been tremendously disappointing.

    Same as above. Stone had a monster year that no Sens fan could've predicted.

    Culek was hot stinking ass.

    I'll add that, while not exactly a 2010 draftee, David Rundblad's stock has risen a whole lot after his tremendous season.

    I don't understand what exactly Coyle did to stand out in his first season. 26 points in 37 games if good for a freshman but it's not numbers that make me go wow this guys is a future all star. It's not like his numbers were that much better then other first or second rounders who played there first year in the NCAA

    The guy blows me away every time I watch him. And it also sounds like he was the biggest standout at Wild prospect camp.
