WHL

Forwards
Brendan Shinnimin (signed NHL deal, not available, too bad)
Adam Hughesman (top recruit, may get pro deal - Adam would fit in very well with the Bisons)
Mason Wilgosh (tremendous leader, hard working kid - would be a natural replacement for Hellyer or Benias)
James Henry (tremendous leader, great competitor, good offensive potential - could be a future Bisons captain)
Jesse Paradis (solid two way player)

Defencemen
Corbin Baldwin (monster dman, may get pro deal)

Goalies
Deven Dubyk (solid goalie - played a lot with Red Deer this past year)

MJHL

Forwards
Derek Gingera (high scoring Junior A player, small and fast)
Blake Chartier (solid player with good hands)
David Conrad (played 3 years in the Dub before finishing his junior career in the MJ)
Craig Scott (great finish to a Junior A career with a strong playoff run with the Saints, led the MJ in playoff scoring)

Defencemen
Dylan Heide (solid high scoring Jr A dman, good student who won a major Junior A scholarship, currently studying at the U of M)
Paul Bonar (very good Jr A dman)
Paul Sohor (had 3 years in the Dub before playing with Selkirk Steelers as a 20 year old, brings toughness and a bit of offence)
Drew Scurfield (solid dman)
Tyler Wiwchar (also won a major Junior A scholarship, already studying at the U of M)

Goalies
Matt Krahn (all star MJHL goalie, backup with the Allan Cup National Championship team)

this is a very good crop to choose from but other than Baldwin and maybe a couple of the MJ dmen not a lot of size. Some of the MJHL players are already students at the U of M.
let's do a bit of an update on this list:

WHL

Forwards
Brendan Shinnimin PRO DEAL WITH PHOENIX
Adam Hughesman STILL AVAILABLE
Mason Wilgosh STILL AVAILABLE
James Henry HAS REPORTEDLY COMMITED TO THE BISONS
Jesse Paradis HAS COMMITTED TO THE BISONS

Defencemen
Corbin Baldwin HAS COMMITTED TO THE BISONS

Goalies
Deven Dubyk HAS COMMITTED TO THE BISONS

MJHL

Forwards
Derek Gingera NO UPDATE
Blake Chartier NO UPDATE
David Conrad NO UPDATE
Craig Scott NO UPDATE

Defencemen
Dylan Heide HAS COMMITTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO
Paul Bonar NO UPDATE
Paul Sohor NO UPDATE
Drew Scurfield NO UPDATE
Tyler Wiwchar NO UPDATE

Goalies
Matt Krahn NO UPDATE

Coach Sirant is doing a great job locking up the best Manitoba players - I can't help but think Hughesman and Wilgosh are seriously considering Manitoba, and with all the recent activity and signings they would have a lot of talent to play with for the next 5 years.
