Los Angeles - Petr Kanko ( has he fallen out of the Kings' top 10 already?)
NY Islanders - Wes O'Neill (having huge yr w/ Notre Dame - even though they suck)
Washington - Mike Green ( i know wsh's loaded with good prospects, but take a look at what he's doing in the WHL this year, i think he's going to be a VERY solid 3-4 D man for years to come....he's got a mean streak )

Anyone agree? Disagree?
Green is not only in our Top10 he is pushing our top 5. He is leading defenseman in the WHL in scoring and is gritty and a force to be reckoned with.

Hugh Jessiman-He was 43rd last year, but dropped off the list due to injuries. He'll be back next year, though. I wouldn't say that he was 'snubbed', but I'm saying that he probably missed the top-75 cut by a few votes due to his injury. As I said earlier, we'll see him on that list again next year.

other than Skinner, I think Ellis-Plante should have been listed for the Canucks. he's one of the two best goalies in the Q.

I was a bit surprised that RSL leading scorer Alexei Kaigorodov didnt make the top 50. (only 55th? ) But seriousely I thought he would make the top 50. Oh well. I guess you cant really argue much with "16 executives".

Nittel probably started scoring after the mag went into printing, at least thats my guess. Also, the players listed have had a longer time to get looked at, where as Nittel just started his upward trend.

Now Vrana, i dont get that omission...

The Green omission just shows how much depth washington actually has...

Kanko's not having the best year, same with Fast. O'Neill had a bad rap before the draft, and i think it will take some time before he shakes that.

Popovic i dont understand though.

THN didn't just omit Vrana. They put Cam friggin Janssen on the top-10 list. HF doesn't even rate him top-20. He's an AHL enforcer and thats it.

And they rated Redlihs over DeMarchi and Eckford.
