He`s essentially looking at the 2013 Draft--so theres players on his list that are already wth CHL teams, but also gives a brief look at the better Euros that played in the Windsor tourney (again, huge praise to the original author Mr Kyle Andrew Busch)
Andre Burakowsky (Sweden - Malmo, SEL)Burakowsky was a member of the top line on Sweden, and has a lethal wrist shot. He does it almost as good as Ovechkin/Kessel. He's tall and lanky, and with some muscle building he can fill out and be a fast power forward.
Leon Bristedt (Sweden - Linkopings, SEL)Bristedt is in the Ohman mold and will likely be taken after him as well, but he has the same skill set. The only knock is that he's 5'8, but he's still taller than Martin St. Louis and Nathan Gerbe.
Leon Draisaitl (Germany - Mannheim, DNL)Draisaitl was the best player on a weak German team. He scored 97 goals in 20 games in the DNL league, along with over 200 points. He didn't have a lot of help in Windsor.
Sergei Tolchinski (Russia - CSKA Moskow, RUS)Tolchinski is 5'7 and a buck fifty. Not NHL size at all, but his skills are second to none. Igor Larionov is his agent, so that speaks volumes.
Valeri Nichushkin (Russia, Traktor Chelyabinsk, RUS)Nichushkin is the fastest skater in Russia under the age of 20. No joke - he beat a player that started at the far blueline and he was it the other blueline. He's also a giant and if he fills out he could be a poor man's Evgeni Malkin.
Anton Cederholm (Sweden - Rogle, SEL)Big defenceman that screams Victor Hedman. He doesn't score, but he's a stay at home guy that makes the simple play and has a high plus-minus.
Robert Hagg (Sweden - MODO, SEL)Hagg scored two goals in one period against Quebec, showing he can contribute offensively, but his real forte is creating space and making a great first pass.
Nikita Serebryakov (Russia, Dynamo Moscow, RUS)Serebryakov was the best goalie in the tournament. He's built and moves like Ilya Bryzgalov, but plays more like Evgeny Nabokov in his prime.
Ebbe Sionas (Sweden - AIK, SEL)The Swedish goalie played all but one game and was solid throughout, even when his team faltered, he gave them a chance to win over superior opponents.
Thanks alot for the info. There were a couple I didnt know anything about other than their position..
