I think I like Kristo more than you do, but interestingly he fell in the same spot. Some other thoughts:

- I think Buchnevich and Duclair will both be in the top 5 this time next year.
- Nieves could be lower given his year, but I was SO impressed with him last year that I'm giving him some slack.
- Really looking forward to seeing Graves and Donnay play in the AHL. I think we'll get a much better read on them when they do.
- Hrivik pains me - I really liked him. Another sputtering forward I lay at Gernander's feet.
- Same with Yogan, although I didn't expect him to produce as much offense as Hrivik.
- I want to rank Andersson higher given the skillset, but it's hard to justify for an offensive defenseman with 10 points in the 2nd league in Sweden.
- I genuinely think Kantor's got a shot at becoming a fourth line regular in the NHL.
- I am REALLY down on St. Croix. I just don't think he's got the compete level.
- Ryan Bourque is a solid player for what he is - but he is what he is at this point. If he had more size, he could be a useful NHL fourth liner, but as it is, I think he's maxed out on his development and we'll never see him suit up for the Rangers.
