Sure it does. Afterall, they underated him. The Flyers won't...underate him. He'll belong gone before #9.

I know this board is a certified Turris fan club, but people need to remember what happened to Anze Kopitar. Highly touted, but dropped due to where he played. It's likely that that could happen again...and obviously is he is indeed the next Kopitar, then he'll make a team very happy. But saying he'll drop out of the top 5 isn't ridiculous.

Overall a decent list... some of the player comparisons are off though.

And I don't know where they got their info on Kitchener Rangers goalie John Murray. They say he's 6-5 (!) and compare him to Olaf Kolzig... when he's listed on the OHL site as 6-1 and from the games I've seen him play, even that's being generous.

he didnt drop because of where he played. it was becasue he is from slovenia and teams where worried about that becasue they dont have a history of producing nhl players.

I would suggest that BECAUSE of what happened to Kopitar, teams won't let that happen again with another highly touted player from either a non-traditional country or perceived lower-level league.

I think teams need to use the "eyeball test" a little more these days, because there are great young talents to be discovered everywhere.

I really can't see the Zherdev comparison for Cherepanov..

that inconsistency remark is quite curious too.

Kane's puck skills absolutely dwarf those of Briere's, so I don't see the comparison.

That was a good read. One of the best draft previews I've looked at in some time. I'm referring to the write-ups. I don't quibble with rankings, though they are fun to see.

According to these standings, they sure do...

It's the Under 17 squad that actually is based out of the NAHL, and are matched up in the standings. The Under 18's play some exhibition games against NAHL teams (and have gone 12-1), but I've never heard of the team being considered based out of the NAHL.
Come to think of it, I guess they don't have any league affiliation, do they?
