    Alex Galchenyuk should be a shoe in. I personally think he could even be a better player than Yakupov next year if he continues to develop the way he has been. It's hard to find someone with his size, speed and shot. He's already at 6'1" 185lbs, and probably will be around 6'2" 190-200lbs next year.

    Russia will have a great draft for sure, Yakupov and Galchenyuk produces like mad, and they are still not in there draft year.

    Looking at swedish players, Filip Forsberg and Sebastian Collberg looks like first-rounders at this point, they might even have a shot at the top-10. Besides those two guys it's too hard to tell, so much will happen in 1,5 year.

    you can at least say that the swedish 1994's looks better than the 1992-1993 crops so far. Theres two lateborn 1993's in the winger Pontus Ã…berg and the defenseman Mikael Wikstrand that might be firstround-material.

    Oskar Dansk (born 1994) is a fantastic goalie that plays for a organisation (Brynäs) that is good at developing goalies, but goalies are rarely drafted in the top-30.

    I liked what I saw from him. I agree on one thing Yakupov is a classic example of a player being overrated because of people looking at the statistics. He is a great talent and one of the top prospects going in to next year but he isnt above the rest of his peers as some might think looking at statistics.

    The dgroup coming from the WHL does look very very very strong though. Definitely looks like a amazing age group for this draft overall.

    These guys are kids from the OHL that haven't been mentioned that have a shot or outside shot, IMO.

    Nope, 2012 is the year of the D-man.

    There's probably 20 or so that would normally get drafted in the 1st round, let alone all the other players.

    Do some research before you go saying something like that.

    2011 is supposed to have some of the best depth in years.

    Links to what.

    These are always based on people's speculations. There is no way to determine whether it's true or not.

    At this time last year many people in the know said 2011 was going to be a down year. But, as it has gotten closer, those same people have changed their tune. This draft might not have as much high end talent as year's past, but the depth is absolutely there.

    Even Bob Mac said it this year....20-40+ is hugely wide open with a ton of well rounded players.

    He was putting down someone that said they had heard that this was a weak draft, that is why I asked for links to support his claim that it was not. I know Mark Siedel continues to say this is a weak draft.

    Fair enough. I was merely pointing out that there is some that feel that this is a weak draft.

    Yeah I know.

    But as I said, it's all opinions at this point. There are some who feel that way, and some who feel it's very well rounded and quite deep.

    There is no definitive answer now and won't be for atleast 5 years.

    Any high-end forward would do at this point. But yes, Yakupov would be nice.
