Remember, the 2015 class (aside from McDavid, who got ES), are most likely still playing in their leagues before major junior or semi-pro or professional hockey, I'm 100% certain McDavid would have had more points than that if he still played in the GTHL.

Ah ok. Interestingly enough, the only player in the NHL at the moment who has played in the same leagues as him (who have exceeded his scoring), seems to be RNH.

http://www.eliteprospects.com/league...sum_totals=yes

But he is playing in the WHL next year according to that site. Should be interesting.

I think I have a good feel for what he does and how he measures up.

If your referring to Chad Krys, hes not eligible. Hes a QMJHL prospect. I've only seen him once, so I look forward to next weeks showcase. I'm sure the U17 team will extend an early invite.
Actually wasn't referring to Krys at all, he is one of the outstanding players but not who I was referring to at all. Very familiar with him being a Q prospect. But here is the name that is quite capable of matching and surpassing Day's skill, Jacob Chychrun! You can now list him on your website as a draft prospect that you've observed and "predict" will be in the top 10. I would make sure you know a little about the kid first though before you prophesy his rank based on the performances you've seen by him.

And we certainly will have a write up on him, but not after we have had the opportunity to see him live and in person 5-7 times (As we did with Day, Warren, Osburn, etc). Unlike some we don't judge on hearsay or speculation, myself and my guys put the work in. This weekend will be a great first view to see how he has progressed.

I'm familiar with Chychrun (as I think most OHL guys are), was lucky enough to see him match up with Day and Compuware this year with Little Caesars U16. Dad played in the NHL, based out of Florida, moved up to play higher levels in Detroit. He has the size and skill, mobility is an area to work on but by no means is he a below average skater. He has the ability to be a top 20 pick at this point, well see if he can capitalize on that potential.

I do believe his name is Jakob

He did have 209 points in 88 games last season in the GTHL.

I couldn't imagine more but it is pretty certain it would have been.

Hows the drop off after McDavid? Anyone worthwhile?

Mathew Barzal. He has to prove it in the WHL this year with the Seattle Thunderbirds. Hopefully he can be McDavid's dancing partner.

Major Midget is considerably worse than minor midget.

In Ontario at least, most AA teams can beat major midget AAA teams. Once it gets past minor midget, AAA is about the players still willing to pay a stupid amount of money.

It's not the case in other provinces such as Alberta and Quebec where top players take the Major Midget route over the Minor Midget route. I don't know about BC but I have a feeling its like Alberta and Quebec.

Not in my experiences it isn't. I've played both major and minor midget AAA and major takes the cake by a longshot.

Ontario must be the only exception. Because all the good players from minor midget AAA move onto Major Jr or Jr leaving all the rest to play major midget the following year. Often where I'm from, AA players will get called up to AAA and be the best player on that team, they just chose not to play AAA because it costs around 10000 a year when all is said and done. I help coach a Jr B team and we get a lot more players coming from competitive B/AA than AAA.

in alberta the top bantam prospects usually go straight to major midget AAA then go to the WHL. sometimes a player will go from minor midget AAA to the WHL but it's pretty rare.

I love the forwards in this draft! McDavid,Barzal,Konecny,Strome,Noel are all great forwards. Plus the D's are OK, really like what I'm hearing from Pilon.

Jake Wahlin - drafted Des Moines - U18 US team - listed Vancouver Giants

He is a late 1996 birthdate and has to be considered

Damn, Rantanen's size and age + his production is really intriguing. Saarela's looking good too. Gonna be interesting to see how they develop.

Vancouver Giants - 1997's

Alec Baer will score 100 points in the WHL in the next year

Ty Ronning will be one of the most talented forwards in the WHL within 2 years

Alec Baer is literally the next Dany Heatley. Just not as good.

The kid switches from team to team whenever he wants. He seems to care more about his hype than his actual playing ability.
