I actually read the info on your blog this morn Bryan, before seeing it on here. Thanks for all the stats. I didn't think Seguin was that good. I'm a little concerned that he didn't make the jr team, but he looks like the real deal. Hopefully we get one or the other.

I care that they are in the basement. Every year. I mean seriously. Can't this organization find people competent enough to build a winner anywhere. At all.

I'm glad that you enjoyed it, if we do land the top pick and the top 3 are supposedly really close it will be a REALLY tough task for the scouting staff.

No doubt about that, but I can think of worse problems to be faced with. If I had to pick today, I think I'd go with Seguin, based on the stats you provided.

I'm really looking forward to watching a few of their games to make an opinion based on more than stats. I believe they play against eachother on Tuesday, I'll probably watch the replay on a later date as it is cheaper than paying for the live feed. It's a "scouting" viewing not as a fan, so the score or watching it live really doesn't mean much to me.

I look forward to your assessment, when it comes to the Jrs I respect your opinion. Not many people put in the time to watch them

It will be a nice problem to have. I'm not too worried since any of them will likely turn out very well, and the Oilers scouting performance in the last few years hasn't been anything much different than what can be expected with playing the lottery that is the draft.

Thanks, I usually watch more AHL and NCAA than CHL, but with the Oilers in their current position it is worth it to me to watch the potential top 3 picks play in a couple of games.

When you get to play the lottery and get to choose from all of the best instead of getting the leftovers, it makes a world of difference. I really hope that we finished dead last so that at worst we fall to 2nd and land whichever player is left over.
