Cherepanov = Super Prucha.

Sure would be nice to have a guy with that level of talent in the cupboard.

I'd hate to pass on Espo if he's there for us in the 1st. We lack that top-tier talent in the system and we have plenty of guys in Callahan, Dawes, Dubinsky who can be potential 2nd line scorers. I wouldn't be against going for the homerun with Espo, even if he has bust-potential.

We did that w/Jessiman. I don't think I could handle all the posts on every scout and front office personel who will get excoriated by people screaming about another bust and generally working themselves into a lather about Espo being a bust after we did this with Hugh. The good news if that happens we just ressurect all the Jessiman posts and change the name to Esposito

Agreed. However, I think Jessiman is not a fair comparison. Espo is considered a top top talent that has some attitude issues (see Robbie Schremp). Jessiman came out of left field and didn't seem to be on anyones radar but ours. I think Jessiman was a case of us shooting our load too early. Guys like Espo and Sutter have perennial all-stars written all over them with the right coaching.

It was said that Los Angeles also had him on their list; everyone else had him 25-35.

Just so it isn't lost on you guys, our first prospect feature is posted on page three. However, an easier way to find it might be just to click on the link in the very first post.

Look for Jakub Voracek's feature today or tomorrow depending on when I hear back from my insider.

I'd like to do Kyle Turris, Karl Alzner and Patrick Kane in the next week or so. Anymore requests?

Logan Couture, Sam Gagner, Brandon Sutter, Zach Hamill and Keven Veilleux...for starters.

Seventh round

"The Rangers are pleased to select Lyon Messier from the Texas Tornado's of the NAHL"

Quote:
After two seasons in the NAHL, this draft-eligible defenseman has set his sights on college. He could get drafted in the later rounds of the 2007 Entry Draft, but wants to have all of his bases covered

The draft order has been changed

Quote:
The 14 non-playoff teams will be seeded in inverse order of regular-season finish, just as they used to be, with the draft lottery remaining the same.

- Teams that lose in the first round of the playoffs, except those that won regular-season division titles, will be slotted next in inverse order of regular-season point totals.

- Regular-season division winners that did not advance to the Conference finals will be slotted next, in inverse order of regular-season point totals.

- Teams that make the Conference finals will be slotted next, in inverse order of regular-season point totals.

- The two teams that make it to the Stanley Cup final will get the final two picks - No. 29 for the Cup finalist and No. 30 for the Cup champion

The Rangers voted for the change

Is he Billy Smith's son?

I'm not too excited to see us take a goalie so high but after reading up on him I like what i hear so far.

here is some more from the HF article "OHL preliminary Top 10 prospects for 2007 Entry Draft" on both Smith and Trevor Cann. (01/20/2007)

Quote:
8a. Jeremy Smith, G, Plymouth Whalers

8b. Trevor Cann, G, Peterborough Petes – Between Smith and Cann there is very little to choose from. They are roughly the same height, although Cann has a substantial weight advantage over the lanky Smith. In addition Cann is probably the bigger name, having been a last-minute addition to Team Canada’s WJC selection camp when it looked like London’s Steve Mason might not be able to overcome his injuries.

Cann has been dynamite this season, posting at 19-18-3 record in a whopping 42 games. He’s been peppered with shots, but has posted a respectable 3.49 GAA behind a stellar .913 save percentage.

Conversely, Smith hasn’t seen the same amount of rubber. Sharing duties with Washington Capitals’ draft pick Michal Neuvirth, Smith has only appeared in 22 games. However, the one thing that’s truly stood out in Smith’s favor is that although he’s paired with an NHL-drafted goaltender, the club loses nothing when Smith is inserted between the pipes. Their overall statistics and performance has been nearly identical, which bodes well comparison-wise.

Smith has posted an excellent 2.43 GAA and a 13-5-1 record, along with a .925 save percentage. While these numbers seem to sway the argument in Smith’s favor, one must understand that while Smith’s Whalers are fighting for the overall OHL crown, Cann’s Petes are just treading water. With the trade of marquee Petes like Steve Downie (PHI) and Daniel Ryder (CAL) – appropriately in this case to Plymouth – it will be up to Cann to ensure the club stays competitive, which is a pressure Smith doesn’t have.

With only a couple of inches, but miles of rubber between them the choice isn’t yet clear.

I would not take him with a mid-round pick. Maybe in the last round. 8th in the USHL is not that good.

*8th in the UShl not that good come on and lets see where he ends up when the season is over .Marcou has made every USA team for his age so far and will continue to get the job done mid round pick only because of his size

Just a quick update fellas. Voracek is/has been done for a few days, but just needs a few final touches. I'll be adding a few more guys this weekend: probably Turris, Alzner, and a special interest to the Rangers (and everyone else) Sutter.

He's not even ranked by CSS.
