That's the highest I've seen Bjugstad, and definitely the highest I've seen Petrovic. Faulk's getting some first round attention now, too.

McFarland placed a little more realistically, now, I think. I like his skill set, like everyone, but there never seems to be any results when I watch him play. Not the best instincts.

Sad to see Kevin Clare in the "falling" section. He went to my high school for a year before transferring. He was a good guy.

I'd put Watson and Skinner higher, Gudbranson lower. Spooner should crack that top 30 as well.

I give them props for putting Tinordi in the first round though.

Really Gudbranson lower? Any team that picks this guy outside the top 8 is getting one hell of a defenseman. I really believe he could potentially be a franchise defenseman. He plays a game mature beyond his years and hasn't gotten much exposure this year because of injuries and illness.

Every time I've seen him, he's been nothing special. Big. Nothing more. I haven't seen any reason to draft him anywhere near the top half of the first round.

the funny thing about the "falling" list is that they only have three guys falling, but 12 guys rising???

Kevin Clare is not an offensive defensemen, I do not know what ISS could have a problem with, as he will fit the mold of a Mark Mitera type player.

Clare and Fowler were the top two ranked U-18 dmen last year, and unfortunately for him, the likes of Merrill, Forbort, Tinordi, Johns, and Faulk have all come on like a freight train. I would throw in Merrill with Fowler and Clare, as all three were projected first rounders last year.

I don't believe Clare will be a first round talent, but understand that this is the type of player that doesn't fall out of the third round imo. He is way too reliable in his own zone. He always has excellent positioning in the mold of a Paul Martin. He may be getting overshadowed now by some of the "bigger" boys on that US blueline, but Kevin Clare is still going to be a pretty high draft pick.

Nick Mattson would be the guy I would put as falling over Kevin Clare, as Mattson is the one that has had a better offensive game, but has struggled at stretches this year in the USHL.

Anyone know what the asterisks mean in the ISS lists? I can never figure them out. I see no pattern to them at all, yet they are on all of the lists I've ever gotten from them, and they never mention what they are. Cheers!

the only thing that I could possibly think of is that if you look at all the European players, none of them have that asterik. I should say the European players not playing in North America (CHL or USHL), those guys do not have asteriks. Connolly also does not have an asterik, but maybe that is due to his injury?

Sheahan also does not have an asterik, maybe because he plays in college?? I dont know, I thought I had it with the Euro's not playing in North America until I saw him.

If i'm not mistaken and someone correct me if i'm wrong, but i believe it means that the player was measured personally by the scouting service. You hear players refered to as "Bigger than he is listed" Because sometimes team sites or even league sites will list someone bigger than they really are to make them sound more appealing. Like Tarasenko for example may only be 185 but he's listed as 202. The asterisk states that is their true height/weight at the time of measurement by ISS.

Likewise. Everytime I've seen Grundbanson I have walked away wondering why scouts are so high on him.

Another thing that GM's will look at is programs like Kitchener and Windsor have a good reputation for developing players in recent history and Kingston well.....

This no doubt affects how high certain players are taken.

Would like to see how Watson's game has translated since being traded.

Never understand how someone like Skinner, leading or was leading the league in goals, is ranked lower than Burmistrov and McFarland. Skinner has great hockey sense, speed and great hands.
Way too much hype on McFarland for way too long, dont get me wrong, has the skill set for a first rounder but has been projected top 10 for too long.

Burmistrov has a smoother stride, and the way he plays the game makes scouts feel like he's going to be a top player in the NHL, regardless of whether he's actually doing anything in the OHL that night. Burmistrov is more about projection, Skinner is more about production.

I prefer Skinner, but I can see how Burmistrov would be appealing. Burmistrov just LOOKS like a good player.

So we can strt with the "differences of opinion" debates...

It appears ISS like Riley Sheahan a lot less than NHL Central Scouting does...that the ISS likes Tom Kuehnhackl (only 10th best euroskater in Central Scouting rankings) a lot more than Swedes Ludvig Rensfeldt and Jonathan Johansson (5th and 8th best euroskaters respectively in central Scouting's view) just to name a few differencesof opinion...

Cant all these websites/services get accurate heights & weights? Guess we'll have to wait for the draft tests.

Jordan Weal

Surprized Weal is not in top 30. Has performed as well as, if not better than the other small guys in the top 30. ie Hishon, Granlund, Schwartz. Granlund is a good player, but if he was Canadian, he wouldn't have made a WJC team yet.

Skinner and Weal will both be steals if they go as low as projected.

How did Kabanov fall a few spots while Connolly gained a spot? Aren't they both injured for some time?

Thanks R-D... that would make sense, because there is no really recognizable pattern to the asterisks other than that. Cheers!

Anyone have any extended info on Joe Basaraba? Based on the success Stepan is having, I'd imagine the Rangers will be scouting SSM quite a bit.
