WHL depth for the 2007 entry draft is big particularily at defence and forward.

On defence - *$Alzner, *Aulie, *$Blum, *Ellerby, Ellington, *$Hickey, *Plante, Postma, *Ross.

At forward - Bowman, *$Gillies, *$Hamill, King, McCrae, *$Repik, *Sonne, *$Sutter.

In goal - LeClerc, Mucha, Sexsmith.

* - denotes a player who I believe has the potential to go first round.

$ - denotes a player who I believe will go first round.

I think a lot of that has to do with the USHL development time line as ooposed to the majot-junior route. It gives teams more time to allow the players to develop. Not to mention that they have been putting out some very good talent recently.

And don't think the CHL hasn't noticed either. When it comes time for agreements to be negotiated or re-negotiated look for the CHL to try and level the playing field.

Brandon will catch fire by the end of the season. He is very fast and has a quick shot. His grit is undeniable.

Pardon moi?

Sexsmith has the 3rd best set of number for goalies in the WHL right now. He had another shutout tonight for the Giants and is just as much the #1 goalie in Vancouver as Dustin Slade is! Don Hay has said these guys will rotate back and forth for the entire season. You obviously know nothing about the WHL or the Giants and what Sexsmith has done already is a little more than the, 'not very much' you indicated in your post.

As noted by another poster, he is playing with Omaha in the USHL right now for some games. However, he will be playing high school hockey with Hill Murray in Minnesota once that starts up next month.
