    Tomas Stryncl: http://www.hockeysfuture.com/article.php?sid=6467
    Tomas Kudelka: http://www.hockeysfuture.com/article.php?sid=6383
    Martin Husicka: http://www.hockeysfuture.com/article.php?sid=6329
    Petr Kalus: http://www.hockeysfuture.com/article.php?sid=6291
    Kirill Anykeenko(he is one of the best euros rated in overall): http://www.iihf.com/hockey/x/0203/W18/0203/scripts/rosters/pg000010.htm
    And Zdenek Bahensky is a 2004 eligible player.

    You can go to: http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?threadid=13832&highlight=2005 also.

    Jakub Vojta (HC Sparta Praha)
    Birthdate: February, 8th, 1987
    Height: 5'11''
    Weight: 172 lbs.
    NHL: 2005 eligible
    Stats: 48GP 14G 24A 38P 101PIM

    Jakub Vojta is a good skater with solid lateral moves and pivots. His strongest asset is his above-average stickhandling and a huge portion of offensive flair. He handles the puck very smoothly and likes to make nifty moves and dekes. Vojta has very good passing skills to go along with his vision and hockey sense. His shots need some improvement, he has to shoot more hard. Lack of toughness may be a problem for him, but Vojta relies on his smart positional play instead. He isn't throwing his body around, he just waits for the right moment and takes the puck away from the opposing forward. Overall a solid 2005 prospect.

    Danylo Guryev is 1987'er, he's currently at U20 WJC Ukrainian Camp. If he makes it that would be an awesome accomplishment...

    Nicklas Bergfors has emerged as a top prospect from Sweden. Plays forward, great size and is averaging a point / game (which is good) in the Swedish Junior league.. playing against guys that are 3-4 years older.
    some more info on Bergfors here
    http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=2045

    Another player that I would like to mention is Tom Wandell, teammate and linemate with Bergfors actually. Wandell is an extremely entertaining player to watch. Excellent technical skills and a good playmaker. Is still rather thin and needs to add some muscles
    http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=2021

    Hokay,
    You have 3 Swedes on your list there but that list is pretty out of date.
    Pettersson is still a great prospect but the fact that he hasn't grown and is only 5'6" will not help him.

    Karlsson is a good prospect as well although I don't think at this point that he'll get drafted in the first 3 rounds.

    Sundström has been injured all season and just recently returned. A fine prospect, but still behind Bergfors and Wandell.

    Cool, nice research Predatore. Isn't S. Karlsson the younger sibling of Jens (in the LA system)?

    He is Jens Karlsson's younger brother.
    Funny though, Sebastian is pretty much his brother's opposite on the ice.

    Karlsson is very tough, physical, has a great shot, more of a scorer than a playmaker (although he has been struggling win his scoring game) ...... while Sebastian is smaller, doesn't play very physical, has a mediocre shot, a great passing game and so on :)

    I heard Vitaly Anikeenko can be drafted first of the europeans. Do any one know something about is style? Is he a Defensive or an offensive d-man. I know he's 6"3, so he should hit, but does he have an offensive talent?

    OK I have some things to clarify about Romy Elayoubi. Even thought I hope he'll make it as a star since he's from my hometown, he played with some of my friends and they all agree on a few points that will be crucials on his developpement.

    Elayoubi always had a BIG HEAD and consider himself as a god. He is a cancer in the locker room. He also never was physically pushed around because he was always the most talented player on his team and people weren't able to hit him or when they did, another guy would make them pay. Elayoubi now is playing in the Q and he is unable to use his talent because of his unability to handle physical play.

    One of my friends made this bet with me last year. " He'll get injured in the first part of the season and he will play poor hockey ". He played horrible hockey until the bench clearing brawl that happent a month ago against Baie-Comeau where he broke is collar-bone.

    I don't want to say anything that could cause trouble to this kid, but let's say that he ain't the kind of guy that you like to have on your team. He is a floater, not physical and has a bad attitude. But he also has a top 5 skill set for the draft.

    Make your own mind on him, the thing that will change is career is his if he can mature or not... :dunno:
