Haven´t gotten any response, so maybe I´ll need try this thread as well :

Anyone have any thoughts or rankings of 1998 born prospects?

Players who have impressed me so far are: Juha Jääskä (HIFK), Patrik Laine (Tappara), Tino Siren, Tarmo Reunanen (both TPS), Anton Stråka (JYP).

Jääskä has impressive puck control and he is very dangerous when he comes off the wing as he has very good passing skills. Fairly strong skater and very good on the powerplay.

Laine is a very talented player, with his size, skill and shot. But he is not the best player defensively yet, he can be actually lazy in his own end. He still has a lot of potential.

Siren has impressed me this year. An opportunistic forward who can skate and has puck skills. Almost a -99 born, so I think there is a lot of upside. Reunanen has nice hands and skating, could become a good defenseman if he works on his defensive zone play.

Stråka has played a year up as well and I liked what I saw from him. A forward that has good size and skill, could be a player to watch for the future.
