It just comes off as such a bold statement... there has to be a better comparison in the NHL for a shorter-strong on feet player than Crosby. It will inevitably invite too much unfair critique.

He's got similar abilities with puck as well - maybe a Zach Parise would be a better comp? These guys are all the same mold. Thats what I was trying to say.

Yeah, why should he have a right to go to college if he so chooses?

His call. He can do whatever he wants. But, agreed 2013 is a long ways off. Spezza was hyped too at that age, so was Dan Cleary all those years ago. Neither was #1.

Hey guys Steven Anthony and Sam Calabrese are going to be like Lemieux and Orr again.

Tavares is gonna score 100+ his rookie season

Things change but I love to see them change... It's exciting but 2 years away is really really early to be RANKING these players with certainty.

Hell I think even a year in advance is... The last year before eligibility is the major major year.

Domi is a fantastic player and has lots of potential. He is definitely in the top 5 for the OHL draft this year. 2013 is a long time away, there is lots of time for these players to grow and develop. Personally I think that Sean Monahan, Adam Erne, Nathan Mckinnon and Seth Jones are around the top of the pack for the 2013 draft.

Which is hilarious, because playing in the OHL would seem like figure skating compared to the amount of kids that would challenge him in Jr. A.

Nathan Mckinnon and Curtis Lazar are way ahead of Max Domi. Nathan Mckinnon looks to be a real special player here. Even Anthony Duclair looks better than Domi. 2013 is coming soon..it's not that far.

These kids aren't even drafted into the OHL and QMJHL yet. Talking about these players is fun, but don't kid yourself, it's incredibly early.

Not really. This season is virtually over, their draft is the year after next.

Its still very early.

Where was Ryan Strome on peoples draft list while he was in Barrie?

Seguin was not being talked about nearly as much as he should have been.

It is nice to talk about some of the best 95's, but projecting them out, its a guess until we see them move into the next level.

First off, the GTHL finals just started a few days ago, and the OHL Cup isn't for another couple of weeks. During this stretch there's always players the move up rounds ahead of where they were slotted to go (Devo Smith-Pelley for a well known example). It's not even close to 'virtually over'.

Next, none of these players are even eligible to play a full season in the CHL yet. There's countless examples of kids who were hyped up at this age but didn't pan out, it's very early.

You and I have differing ideas on what "early" is then. The NHL has a month of regular season play left. This season is winding down. The draft is 3 months away. Then we're talking about the Yakupovs and Murrays for 2012 and the MacKinnons and Domis for 2013. It's not like these kids are 4, 5 years away.

Regardless of when the draft is we can only talk about the now. We can't predict who is going to be the best player in 2 years for the draft but as of now Domi is not what most would consider an elite prospect. Who knows what he will be like come his draft year but as of now he would need to improve exponentially and pass some other guys in development.

If we can only talk now, there's no point in discussing this year's draft, cup winners, team futures, anything.

Honestly, this kid looks like an incredibly selfish player. He's trying to do it all himself when he has his teammates wide open against a team that they were clearly dominating. There's no way he's on the level of Nathan McKinnon or Lazar..

Have you seen him play? Outside of the Canada Games? Curious is all.

Thats not what i mean. I mean when people say whos the best and posters come on here and say "this is too far away, too much will change, the top prospects now wont be then" Generally this does happen but what i am trying to say is we can only say who is the best now when it comes to prospects at this age we can't predict who will rise and who will fall, although we all know its gonna happen to tons of prospects.

Your right, but we also need to be aware of the rise and fall of prospects. To say with any certainly that X player will be ranked higher then Y player is foolish.

No one knows what these players will become.

However I do understand what you meen by "All we can do is talk about now", and you are right.

One possibility though is that he only plays one year of junior A, then moves to the NCAA in his draft year. Dont ask how I know this, but although most Canadian 95s are in Grade 10, Domi is in grade 11, and could potentially graduate high school next year, meaning that he could play in the NCAA a year early, like Toews did.

No Doubt, but we all can acknowledge that David Branch is very progressive in dicipline. Any kind of physical attacks against players are punished severely.

In the OJHL, hed be fed to the wolves with no recorse.

Ive said it from the start, he will be in the OHL next year.
