New top 20 list - post draft
 
I'm not doing any more polls, so I want everyone to post their OWN top 20 and then we can make a composite top 20 list...the new list will probably mean Daniel Widing and Darren Haydar are off the list.

WuRtZLeSs 07-01-2004 01:31 PM

I was wondering when this was coming ;)

1) Ryan Suter
2) Timofei Shishkanov
3) Alexander Radulov
4) Scottie Upshall
5) Shea Weber
6) Brian Finley
7) Kevin Klein
8) Konstantin Glazachev
9) Libor Pivko
10) Brandon Segal
11) Teemu Lassila
12) Sergei Soin
13) Richard Stehlik
14) Oliver Setzinger
15) Andrei Mukhachev
16) Alexander Sulzer
17) Simon Gamache
18) Darren Haydar
19) Kirill Safronov
20) Vaclav Miedl

I'd put Radulov ahead of Upshall in terms of potential, but behind Shishkanov just because of the fact Shishkanov is ready to step in soon. I'd put Miedl twentieth, but I'm not entirely sure where he would fit.

I like this list although I'd put Miedl just in front of Pivko.

Good list guys. I have been without a computer for a while, so it has taken awhile to catch up on these threads.


I would put Radulov just under Upshall though. Upshall would have had a much better year had he not been hurt.

Joe T Choker 07-05-2004 02:40 PM

I don't want to see..."I agree with so and so's list"...everyone do their own top 20, please, thank you

1) Ryan Suter
2) Scottie Upshall
3) Timofei Shishkanov
4) Shea Weber
5) Kevin Klein
6) Teemu Lassila
7) Brandon Segal
8) Janne Niskala
9) Brian Finley
10) Libor Pivko
11) Richard Stehlik
12) Vaclav Meidl
13) Stanislav Bolen
14) Konstantin Glazachev
15) Grigori Shafigulin
16) Andrei Mukhachev
17) Alex Sulzer
18) Oliver Setzinger
19) Michael Santorelli
20) Craig Switzer

I kind of strayed from the path everyone else is on, and I think we got a stud in Janne Niskala, from everything I've heard. I think Glazachev is being rated too high, and Lassila too low. I dropped Finley down a bit, as well. Inserted two pretty exciting scorers in Bolen and Santorelli in. Also took out Fugure, who i think is going to be a long shot and inserted Craig Switzer, one of the best d-men in the BCHL.

Wally112pac 07-06-2004 10:29 PM

Instead of making a new thread, what do you guys think of Janne Niskala?

With him being a smaller Dman and scoring 21 goals last year i'm guessing he's an offensive defenseman. Do you see him coming over to North America in the future?

it's rumored that he might be over here and in the AHL this year, but who knows. he lead the finnish elite league in goals by a defenseman last year, and is described as "kimmo timonen meets marek zidlicky," that is...good skater, terrific shot, great passing and stickhandling...but lacking defensively. a lot of the finns on the boards seem pretty impressed with him.

Enoch 07-06-2004 10:50 PM

NMK, you left Radulov off your list ;).

You have Balen over Glazachev :amazed:

haha, whoops :blush:

glazachev...has never really put up any numbers to back his scouting report, and i have my serious doubts he'll ever even come to north america. i hope i'm wrong. i think we all got excited over the word "sniper," but i just don't have a lot of hope for him.

Not bad for a 5th rounder. Thanks for the update.

I don't see him listed on the Preds home page. Probably due to lack of updating.

stardog 08-03-2004 07:52 PM

Geez guys where's the love for Niskala? He had an amazing year stats wise, has very good size, will use it and while his defense is nothing to write home about, he certainly improved in that area as well this season.
Is it because The Preds have so many top quality offensive D men that he is left off the list or doesnt have a legit chance to make this team?

Probably a combination of three things:

1.) He is an overager
2.) None of us know a whole lot about him other than stats
3.) We have a lot of good prospects that we DO know more about :D

Well I picked him up in my fantasy league as a late round pick. And it is probably based on those three things why i was able to get him so late.
To be honest with you, he was my favorite pick in my entire draft as i feel he could be one helluva steal for both my fantasy team and the Preds.
I dont know alot about him either, but everything i have read, I really am liking.
I mean TWENTY ONE goals for a DEFENSEMAN in only 55 games is amazing. And along with that size and speed he looks like he could eventualy end up a very good sleeper pick.
I am definatley wanting to see what this kid can do.

We are all hoping he pans out in the fashion that Zidlicky did :D. If I'm not mistaken, was it not the same league that Marek came from?

except Marek never came close to scoring 21 goals. He did, however, have alot more assists that Niskala.
I seriously want to see what this guy can do at the NHL level.
