    Here is my top 50 forward for the next NHL Draft. Don't be shy to comment, but don't be too not shy too. Anyway. Please note that from USA, I only ranked Schmaltz because I had not enought view on the other (Milano, Larkin, Eiserman, Poganski, Wilkie, Malone, ETC) and same thing for the second tier euro (Nekolenko, Vovchenko, Kuzmenko, Kamenev, Boltanov, Tornqvist, Bagenda, Lammikko, Kirivanta, Kase, Jenys, ETC).

    I always start the year with the O and D separated, and after christmas I start to mix them. Here is the link (In french) of the article: http://legrandclub.rds.ca/profils/98924/posts/162388

    Ballsy move to leave off Alexis Pepin. Care to share a thought or two on his development? (Assuming you're based out of Quebec based on the rds article and the fact that you [and I respect you greatly for this] have Julien Pelletier listed)

    Also: I know the stats aren't ideal to the beginning of his Q career, but surely Nantel's tools are good enough to warrant being listed?

    And at the top, I'd go Draisaitl - Reinhart - Nylander, but that's just me.

    I was high on him last year, I saw about 15 games of him last year and I tough he would be the best from quebec... But this year, he came at the camp a little bit too fat, and on the ice, he was not able to create anything. He has potential for sure, but I can't put him in the top 50 for now cuz a lot of others are doing really good. If he progress again I will add him for sure, but I just don't see him their as for now.

    The games I saw (about 3 games), he was good, but not elite and he had some invisible time. I will pay attention, thats just the beginning.

    That's REALLY tight for the number 1 spot between my first 5. I will have to watch a lot of games to be sure, but right now, I see it like this.

    Thought the exact same thing. But its pretty normal for Rockets players to get overlooked.

    Yep, I see a lot in him, he is already one of the best on his team. Skills are there too. If he stay with this pace, he will be one of the best rising player. Thanks.

    For Nantel, I see the potential, and I like him, was in the next 5. I just want to see him dominating a little bit more the play.

    Yes I've seen him play. It's tough to evaluate when a player is playing in a poor team (Belleville are bad...) but he has create some good chances. He have some good tools, speed, good hands. 6'1 feet, 180 pounds.

    Tomasek is one of my sleepers. I actually didn't think he got enough ice the times I have viewed him.

    Great mix of size, skating, skill - just think it may take half a year for him to pick up the pace.

    No way Perlini is lower than 10 - he's not just putting up points randomly. He's an elite winger.

    Perlini should be top 10 and will continue to move into top 5 forwards

    few thoughts I had

    too low:
    Perlini
    Ehlers
    Point
    Baillie

    too high:
    Hawryluk
    Yazkov
    Quenneville
    Labanc

    should be listed:
    Bukarts
    Bishop
    Nantel
    Lemieux
    MacMaster

    also like that you listed Highmore and Fazleyev, both seem like good sleeper picks to me.

    Perlini will be in the top 7-8 before the end of the season.

    Yes tough, but not at all impossible :)

    SO many games left yet before judgement.

    And as another poster says, Bukarts is also missing imo.

    I don't know, I have to watch some other D to make a ranking, I have a good overall view of the top D but I want to see more of them before making a ranking.

    For Point and Baillie, I know they seems low, and I know that they can do better but the games I saw they were just O.K. but I will keep an eye on to make sure. Perlini is rising the list week per week, but for now, I just want to see if he can maintain is pace. I know how good he is tough. It's just my first list of the year, and I have already some ideas for the next (In January), I keep some thing in my mind. For Ehlers, I already answered it, I can see him go in the 20, but not better than this, for the moment.

    For the ''too high'', it's my opinion, Hawryluk was good at all the games I saw from him, was quick, and I really like his games. Same for Quenneville, who I didn't think I would be like. For Yazkov, I will focus a little bit more, but from what I saw, he was creating chances a lot and I see some big offensive weapons. For Labanc, I see him 2 times, maybe was just luck and was his best games, I will focus on more, thanks.

    Bishop, Nantel and Lemieux were in my next 5-6. MacMaster I didnt see him this year, but I think he would be already in my top 50 if I had see him. Bukarts was in my next 10.

    Only problem I have is listing Pelletier (Whom I would have top 50 as well) over his teammate Bishop. Pelletier has the better stats thus far, but Bishop is the better player (In this fans eyes).

    I also have to say Perlini is way too low on that list. I think he will be a top 10 pick overall

    I see more potential in Pelletier. Bishop is fast, and I like him also (he is about 55th). When I do rankings, I don't make it with stats, so that's not the reason why Pelletier is before Bishop. In my eyes (I that's why I do ranking, not the fans ranking) I think Pelletier is a better player. Thanks for the comments tough, it's appreciated.

    I answered it. He is rising the ranking, but I want to see if he will maintain this (amazing) pace.
