I am thankful that the NHL has been backwards thinking for a while now because it allowed Jagr to fall to my team at number 5. I would be pretty upset if my team had selected Nolan, Nedved, Primeau, or Ricci in front him.
Did it at the Bantam/Midget/Junior level for over 20 seasons. Still "birddog". Rather simple. Get the rosters. Watch the warm-up. Watch the game. Eliminate the non-prospects - weaker skaters for the level and so on down the line. Grade the rest. Quantify and qualify the prospects.
