How's he looked? I've only watched Brandon once this year and he was a healthy scratch.

I did see his fight from the other night against Swift.

He has looked really good. Brandon likes to baby its 16 year old D men in the 1st half of the season.

He is very Dumbaesque out there

You may say I say this because I'm Finn and probably that's true but right now I can't see how anyone but Barkov could be the first pick.

He's playing with MEN already. He has already been the best player of his team. He is better in FEL than Granlund was in beginning of his FEL-career, already (Granlund was over one and half years older than Barkov now.). He already is more versatile than Granlund then, maybe more versatile than Granlund now. He already has the size that Granlund will never have. Barkov is the most promising prospect Finland has ever had. IMO the only thing that could make him the not-the-first-pick (excluding injuries) is that he's Finn and there has been too many promising Finns, who never reached NHL.

I don't say he's the first pick, but right now he is imo the strongest candidate.

And sorry for bringing that Granlund-comparison out

He is incredible, but to say that you can't see anyone being better than him right now, you have to know what the other players are like. MacKinnon, Monahan, Jones are phenomenal prospects, and I doubt you've seen enough of them, atleast I haven't

It is incredible that he's doing so well as a 16 year old in the FEL, but thats not against MacKinnon and co that they are "only" playing against juniors.

Mainly I agree with you though

This could be a truly great draft, MacKinnon, Barkov, Lazar, Pulock, Klimchuk, Shinkaruk, Rankin, Nichuskin, Ristolainen, Domi, if all goes well this draft may be the best ever, who knows.

Of course, if any team can ruin a great draft it's the Leafs. If you don't know, way back when the Leaf scouts unanimously selected Joe Sakic, but were overruled by Leaf management in favour of Luke Richardson. I'm sure Burke would pass up the net Joe Sakic/Ray Bourque to draft faster version of Richardson.

Add Jones. I agree with you, so many stars and crazy amount of high-end talents. But long way to go.

Gustav Possler and Robert Hägg from Modo could very well be in the race.

It's usually offensive talent that sets a draft apart, and there is a lot here. I haven't had the opportunity to see almost any of these guys but just looking at numbers and comments they appear to be on a steep curve, most of them. It will be good if most stay healthy, can score and play some D, and keep improving. A few sure have strong skills and hockey sense, something the NHL needs in spades.

Klimchuk, Pulock, Lazar, Forsberg, other guys in the WHL are the most likely for me to see, but I don't live near any teams (PA and Saskatoon are closest) so it'll be hard. So I try and follow comments and stats.

What I 'know' is this:
Lazar - fast, skilled, not big but can fight through checks
Klimchuk - good hockey sense, plays 200 feet, needs acclimation to true fitness, strong offence
Shinkaruk - scorer but more a total offence player, smart on offence for sure
MacKinnon - strong, strong on his skates, good hockey sense, can dominate offensively if his wingers move
Pulock - strong on both ends, carries the play well, good checker, great shot, smart passer

Most of the rest I don't know enough to say, but a lot intrigue me.

A few guys hurting now for 2012, Pulock is OK I hope, I wonder how these guys are going to be doing in January on, it will be interesting to watch these 2013 guys for a while!

Another guy to watch for the 'Q, aside from Drouin, is Jérémy Grégoire with the Sags, big kid with two-way potential.

Interesting to see your views. Forsberg and others drop but no huge risers into the top 10 from nowhere, as one would expect; hard to come from nowhere. I would like to see Klimchuk, Shinkaruk, Pulock, and Lazar play, plus more, but not sure if I ever will.

I live in Victoria and have seen Kanzig play plenty of times, great defensive defensenan, I have never seen him really play offense. But Kanzig has the ability to block shots and has great gap control, the problem sometimes is when he goes for a check and the opponent gets by him, it's hard for him to get back into the play, which most of the time leads to scoring chances, he also takes dumb penalties all the time, holding etc. If Kanzig gets mentioned in the top 30, I say Pilton should as well.

What about Hunter Garlent? is it just size issues holding him back?

I've seen him play and he has some pretty slick offensive skill. His point total (13 in 25GP) does not look that bad at all when you consider he started VERY slowly.

As a Leaf fan I know Burke is already making plans to trade to get Seth Jones (he's tall, American, and American trained). But I'd prefer the Leafs to go after Pulock, Klimchuk, Barkov, Duclair, Rankin, Rychel, Domi, and/or Shinkaruk, by getting two 1st round picks. I'm pretty sure MacKinnon and Monahan are out of reach.

But I fear Burke will go for Jones and the Leafs will give up 2 1st round picks, 3 solid roster players (like Schenn, Gunnarsson, Frattin, Reimer), plus a prospect or two (McKegg, Mikus, Ross, Holzer, Aulie).

Of course, the 2013 pick could be traded for Bobby Ryan (plus another 1st and a second rounder, of course).
