I haven't been following as closely this year as I do most seasons, but from what I've seen, BN and ODC are mostly spot on in their assessments. Couldn't agree more on guys like Slepyshev, Djuse and Arvidsson.

A guy I really like out of Russia, though I doubt he'll even get drafted, is Ruzal Galayev. He was a first round pick in the KHL draft. He's an all-around blueliner that moves the puck well and plays a strong positional game.

Yevgeni Zakurin is a tiny winger with a lot of skill.

Alex Mokshantsev is a strong puckhandling forward that likes to carry the puck and make plays. I like his balance.

On the Swedish side, I'm a fan of winger Markus Soberg. But I have a lot of trust in Frolunda's development system in general.
