Meh, Dahlin seems a little above for a bit. Blood relations or not.

Overall I am not a fan of this ranking, and I agree about Hughes, guy should be top 10. The other three players are ranked right where they should be though. I don't really understand where this Kupari hype is getting from, he hasn't done anything to warrant a top 15 or so position. Late first. Same with Wise, who's living from his hype years ago. McLeod scored whooping 14 goals in 88 games last year, that's terrible for a top prospect.

McLeod is mostly a playmaker and distributor. He had 48 assists in those games.

Kupari has looked everywhere in all the games I've seen him play. Very well rounded high end player, will be shocked if he isn't top 15 or even 10 by the end of the year.

Wise isn't a Top 5 spec any more but he defientely isn't 31st.

The same thing could ask for Zadina.
Whoever SM liiga / A junior sm liiga regular can score 18 points in 20 games and would not even make it strict

So what Zadina has done to deserve TOP15 selection next June?

If you can't score goals against juniors, how are you gonna score in the NHL/AHL?
I find both Kupari and Wise to have more hype than they should have, not much else to say here.

Nice international "revenge" here bud, I down played Kupari so you better down play Zadina. lol
I don't really even know what the second sentence means, but assuming you point the low scoring by Zadina in the U20 league - yes, his stats sucked considering how dominant he should be there. Overall club-wise he didn't have good season, his team was awful, but internationally he had a better season than pretty much anyone else, scoring 20 goals in 22 games. Dragged Czechs to the gold at Ivan Hlinka Memorial, was the best player at majority (if not all) of the U18 tournaments and he was one of the few Czechs that actually delivered in very lackluster performace by the CZE at the U18 WJC. If that's not top 15 worthy in some preliminary rankings, I don't really know what is.

What do you mean they "have more hype then they should"? My point is they don't get hype especially from this guy.

Khovanov will probably drop due to his Hep A

Evan Bouchard would have to be considered a likely candidate for toronto's pick. A 6'2" RHD playing for London, as long as his skating and hockey iq are good.
