Andersson, then Noreau. Add Missiaen.

I'm adding Missiaen over Talbot because he's younger & had a decent season in the ECHL. Stajcer has been unable to hold a starting spot in juniors over the last couple of years, so he'll need to prove something as a pro. It's very close among them.

I don't see McColgan. It's all about improvement for a prospect, and McColgan seems to have hit his plateau 3 years ago. Three years ago, his stats were outstanding as a 16 year old, and he was considered a surefire 1st round pick. But he did not improve at all as a 17 year old, and he dropped to the 5th round. If anything, he regressed as an 18 year old, so he probably would not even be drafted if he were eligible again. A player of his size needs to be extraordinarily productive to make it as a pro, and it just hasn't been there for him.

Interesting indeed! Makes for a good group of people! It's undeniable that we have hard ons every year for US, SWE and CND players.

McColgan

Man I find it hard to believe that Bourque isn't going to make it the top 15 players--I thought just like alot of the guys that he was going to be a fairly good player with his height the only thing holding him back.

If I were to venture a guess, I'd say at this point McColgan is here because of the skills he has, not necessarily because of how he's used those skills or the results he accomplished.

It's a fair enough approach, even if I have to admit it's not my approach.
