2005 draft compared to the others...

2003 draft is (and was) a high quality draft with depth... while in the 2004 draft, it seems that about 10 players should make the big league eventually for sure.

How would you guys rate the 2005 draft compared to others?

The 05 Draft is not as good as 03 but much better than 04

The '05 draft should have a great top 5, as for comparisions, I'd say not as good as '03 but better then '01. Tough for me to really say, I haven't seen that many '05's yet, but from what I've seen, read and some scouts I've talked with, '05 will be a good one.

...Daigle was supposed to be the ''legend'' from 1993 as well.

Daigle never ever had the attitude Crosby does. His attitude and look on the game is being compared to Gretzky. I mean he's only 16 and he handles all the media and popularity so well...with all the pressure on him he continued to have an awesome year.

What are you saying? That some prospects don't pan out?

Hmmmm... hadn't ever thought about that possibility before.

Is the 2004 draft that bad? I mean, what past draft looks similar to it?

2004 reminds me of 2002. Superstar potential 1-5, but it really drops off after that.

I would consider it close to 2001. Kovalchuk and Spezza were both up for the #1 overall pick(about 70/30 respectively). Were consider the top of the class. After those two you had a drop off, a few picks there(maybe up to Ruutu), and then another drop off.

Compared to this year, I would put Ovechkin in Kovalchuk's position. I think Malkin is and will be better than Spezza, but its comparable. Drop off followed by Olesz, Barker, and maybe 1 or two more depending on how you have them rated. And then another drop off to end it.
