NHL Central Scouting had Turris #1, Kane #2, JVR #3: http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/news?slug=prospects

Leading up to the draft I don't recall anyone being as clear the top pick as Jones is now.
Thank you for tracking down this info. I remember that year and reading about the prospects and I knew Kane was NOT the consensus #1 pick for a year leading up to the draft but was too lazy to look it up. I wish people would stop making statements like this.
