    He tends to answer questions about players he likes. It will be interesting to hear what he says about Robbie Schremp, if someone asks about him.

    Yep. :cry:

    Nice question by our own George B here, I assume. About the strength of this draft being underrated due to last year. Woodlief says, "this draft falls right in the average range."

    Same here! Here's mine (of this Woodlief ass raging on me). :lol


    Darren, Vancouver BC: You're very high on Finnish forward Lauri Korpikoski after his performance at the under 18 tournament. Is there cause for concern for teams picking in the mid-1st round that he really came out of nowhere? And that his only real dominating performance was playing alongside Lauri Tukonen and Petteri Nokelainen?

    Kyle Woodlief: (12:55 PM ET ) Came out of nowhere? What planet have you been on? He's been in Red Line's top 25 for five months now. Everyone in the scouting community has known about him at least since the middle of the season. And by the way, it's Korpikoski who was the catalyst of that line, not Nokelainen or Tukonen. Korpikoski was the one doing it on his own without either of them at the Five Nations in Pori, Finland, back in early February. I suspect people who don't know about him only read the posers and wannabes like the folks at the hockey news, who don't employ any scouts and never set foot in junior rinks anywhere around the world, yet pretend to know something about the players they write about.

    I have been wondering about this "weak draft" rhetoric for the entire year. When I looked at the whole thing overall, I couldn't agree. Look at the entire 1st round...when you look at several mock drafts, Smid falls to 20th? You could see as many as 5 or 6 future number one goalies. I just couldn't buy into a "weak draft" scenerio.

    BTW, anyone else catch the "wannabe and posers at the hockey news" shot....very unprofessional. :(

    I agree, he talks like Redline would be the only serious scouting agency in the world... :banghead:

    Woodlief shows that he has no class whatsoever.

    The Hockey News is way more respected than this joker.

    It is a total joke compared to any of the real indepedant scouting publications. I buy it because it's less than $5 but I don't put much stock into at all. And the profiles don't really give you an accurate idea of how the players play.

    I think he's telling it like it is. Obviously their information is 2nd hand and obviously not even remotely comparable to the ISS draft guide or the Redline draft guide.

    Respected for their draft profiles? Surely not.

    It's a great publication but you really can't compare THN's draft preview to any independant scouting guide. I'm assuming you haven't bought one or that would have been obvious to you.

    Huh? He took a shot at a magazine that doesn't do any scouting. All their info is 2nd hand. It's not like he took a shot at ISS or a real independant scouting agency.

    THN is not a scouting agency. That should be pretty clear to everyone based on the product which is far, far inferior to the real draft guides like McKeens, ISS, Redline.

    Respected for anything hockey-related.

    Redline gets downright ignored at draft-time. Should be obvious to you.

    Professional: I suppose that the people that don't have Korpikoski ranked that high haven't spent enough time watching him play. Our scouts have had him pegged as a first rounder for some time.

    Unprofessional:I suspect people who don't know about him only read the posers and wannabes like the folks at the hockey news, who don't employ any scouts and never set foot in junior rinks anywhere around the world, yet pretend to know something about the players they write about.
