Chris, in response to your Q, the players who I believe will move up are:
Canada Jonathan Drouin
4g, 4pts, +5 Cant go too much higher as he almost at the top now but I am guessing that he will move up on most lists for me likely from 4 to 3. Will he make number 1, lets wait till the smoke clears. Love the guy!!!
Russia Albert Yarullin
5g, 3pts, +0 When teams arrange their defenses to accommodate a particular player, you know that player has something going for him. I had him 3rd round when he was first eligible in 2011 and I only had him that low because of the Russian factor. Not aware of him being signed by anyone so I cant believe NHL teams will pass him up a 3rd time where he goes is a game for Russian roulette aficionados.
Slovakia, Marko Dano
4g, 5pts, -1 The pest of Slovakia is finally getting a chance to show his stuff against his age group to North American fans. I currently have him mid-third (76) and he could go to late 2nd. And he will start to appear on other lists as well.
USA Ryan Hartman
5g, 3pts, +4 Liked the guy before the big stage, like him even more now. I still see him as 2nd round (currently 41 on my list) as the 1st round is mainly for scorers but he is likely to move up for sure.
Sweden Alexander Wennberg
4g, 3pts, +4 Getting some needed exposure to North American audiences so he is unlikely to remain under the radar. I think the secret is out and we may start to see him late 1st round on some lists. He is currently 36 on my list.
I havent seen much of them so maybe someone else can add who could go in the first three rounds from their team Given their impressive performance, there should be one or two from them.
I am sure there are others I have missed but the above would be first thoughts.
As for players who will go down, I dont think anyone will really go down based on the U20s however, they may be surpassed by players on the way up.
