Marner on the Flyers is probably the most smartest player in the loop, and has deceiving speed and vision and is very unselfish. If he grows like his brother, than he will be a top NHL draft pick. YES GUYS, YOU HEARD IT FROM ME FIRST.

OF ALL 97S PLAYING IN ONTARIO, SPENCER ON THE RANGERS IS THE BEST D IN THE 97 LOOP BY FAR. IF HE KEEPS PLAYING LIKE HE DID TODAY, HE MAY BE RANKED HIGHER THAN KONECNY AND KOROSTOLEV. I BELIEVE THAT HE MAY BE MORE OF AN OFFENSIVE THREAT THAN MCKEOWN LAST YEAR. TODAY HE MADE END TO END RUSHES THAT WERE UNSTOPPABLE AND "MCDAVID LIKE".
Zach Wilkie #3 on the JR Canadiens is most likely a second round pick in this draft, So i disagree with u on that JR canadiens point. But I do agree that team lacks depth in a big way. Sharipov #88 is an interesting prospect in my opinion and so is Will Lawrence#27, not in the first 2 rounds though.

Noah Jordan Im not big on this player. He is 6-5 and plays very soft. He avoids physical confrontation alot. IVe seen smaller guys toss him around. His size is very appealing for some teams if they think they can develop other parts of his game. I dont see him being productive in the OHL in next year.

Korostelev is invisible without the puck on his stick, makes little impact in his own zone. His sniping abilites are best Ive seen but u have to consider the 200 feet game isnt there. I got carried away yesterday suggesting he could go #2, I dont see it happening. Its still early though. No way Id take him at #2 if the draft was tomorrow. Top 10 yes.

Matthew Spencer I feel similar about him as u do. He reminds me so much of Roland MCkeown its not even funny. Mckeown was more consistent than Spencer on a game to game basis, but the skating and stick skills, the poise, the positioning are unbelieveable. He and Lizotte are 2 of my favourites.

Blake Speers may be the fastest skater available in the draft. He was being heavily scouted this morning by a few OHL gm's who were talking about him. Speers is a first round pick no doubt.

Im on the opposite end than u are about Marner. If he was 6-0 he would be a first round pick, sad but true. I commented above about him, thats how I see him. The opinions on this player vary greatly from one person to another.
