Mikhail Grigorenko being 6th on the list was a bit surprising. I mean I am huge fan of Forsberg although a tad unknown his skating alone is incredible. Reminds me of Grabner jsut with better hands.

That being said (I know these are just rankings) I doubt the draft falls like that.

dnicks17 12-13-2011 12:29 PM

Yeah, I don't know how he can have Rielly and Galchenyuk over Grigorenko considering his play and their injuries, but this list looks a lot better than his others this year.

dnicks17 12-13-2011 12:30 PM

Is anyone familiar with Lindholm or Bystrom?

I'd like to hear a little bit about them.

insider 12-13-2011 12:36 PM

Looks to me like he caught Guelph on a particularly good day.

SensFan26 12-13-2011 12:43 PM

How good is Matt Finn?

Toydarian 12-13-2011 12:43 PM

I don't understand how Galchenyuk is rated above Grigorenko.

Agreed. Mikhail should be in the top 3 IMO.

lol. Says 5'11 and one miss of a key and he's a giant.

Vincent01 12-13-2011 12:47 PM

Nick Ebert in mid 2nd round and Matia Marcantuoni in the late 2nd round?

That would be absolute highway robbery!

My guess is Craig isn't either. He's clearly swigging the Swedes.

Rafik Soliman 12-13-2011 12:59 PM

It's about time, that somebody would recognize the talent of Tanner Richard... :handclap:

He probably saw them both play at World Junior A Challenge.

I know Bystrom had a very strong showing there(overall probably Sweden's best player with Oscar Dansk who is #24 on this ranking) and Lindholm just got promoted to play with the men's team in the Swedish tier2.

I haven't seen Windsor play at all this year, but from what I understand, he hasn't been very good this year. I know he's been highly touted for a while now, but he wouldn't be the first player to peak too early or fail to live up to expectations.

I knew it that Määttä was gonna fall eventually, but that far? :amazed: Well, I guess its better for him not to be a top20 pick- less pressure and lower expectations sure don't do harm. Pokka is a bit too high IMO, somewhere around 70-80 should be alright.

Ebert has been horribly disappoitning and Marcantuoni hasn't healthy all year, and when he has he hasn't looked right. Too many concussions.

I´m not a big fan of Pokka, however 54th seems pretty right in my eyes. If you ask me, he needs some big development in his skating, but I do like his ability to make smart passes. He has looked pretty good on PP at the junior level, has a hard shot and has been a leader on his team.

I didn´t see Pokka playing too much last year, however from what I have heard his skating has seen some development this season.

chaosrevolver 12-13-2011 01:40 PM

Still don't get Gaunce going so late in the first, but too each their own.

Nice to see Zharkov and Subban move up so much as a Bulls fan.

JMac13 12-13-2011 01:43 PM

Gaunce at 26 and Grigorenko at 6 are ridiculously low - teams would be falling all over themselves to get a these players at those two spots

HSF 12-13-2011 01:45 PM

Gaunce is going to fly up the rankings

Marcantuoni is all style and no substance. He has a dynamic skating stride and seems like he has all the tools, but he always leaves me wanting more. Never looks like a difference maker. Living off of the high ranking he had pre-OHL, but a very, very underwhelming player considering his supposed status.

Just beat me too it - a kid with his size, leadership and scoring ability is not going to be around at 26. He's going to end up being a top 10 pick by the end of the year and closer to 5 than 10.

Jag68Sid87 12-13-2011 01:48 PM

Can anyone tell me more about Radek Faksa? He seems like an intriguing possibility for the Pens in the first round.

Craig has made a number of good rankings here. I suppose one, if not the biggest area I disagree is with Brendan Gaunce

We've had him anywhere between #6 and #8 in Sept/Oct/Nov rankings. I strongly doubt that will change at all. Not only is he an extremely talented player, he's an outstanding kid. Someone is going to come up with a great pick with him, and I think as the year goes on you'll see some of the other rankings out there follow suit with ours, and obviously your judgement of Gaunce to the 5-10 area.
