Why is Liljegren still at #2? He's been disappointing in the SHL this season and didn't make the Swedish WJC team. I would think at least Hischier or Vilardi would have surpassed him.

Nikita A. Popugayev too low. It should be at least in the top 20

Yeah, it's not exactly fair to penalize a player on Sweden or Canada for not making the WJC team, considering making either team as a draft-eligible is pretty difficult -- but the point about his play in the SHL is still relevant.

Its not easy being a junior on a team with 7 regulation wins in 29 games.

I personally have him a little lower but he's still in my top4 or top5. Weak draft + I could easily understand if some scouts think there just hasn't been a large enough sample size to drop Liljegren. He really hasn't played much this season and with the men's team he's getting like 2 minutes per game. Gonna be way easier to see where he's at now that he got loaned out to Timrċ.

Who is this year's Adam Fox? I'm wondering who to be hoping for for defensive help in rounds 2-4 with a very skilled offensive defenseman that mostly lacks size.

Erik Brannstrom
David Farrance
Henri Jokiharju

Those are the first three that come to mind. I think Brannstrom is the best of the three. Outside chance he goes in the first round. More likely all three of these guys are second/third rounders.

Chekhovich seems underrated to me. Sure size is a concern, but he has some serious skills.

I wouldn't have Kozlov higher.

Cale Makar seems pretty similar.. but he's higher ranked and a better skater than Fox was I think.

I'll look into all of Brannstrom, Farrance, Jokiharju, and Makar. I think this type of player is going to have a serious upswing in necessity as offensive help and good passing from your defense becomes increasingly important. With guys like Ghost and Krug establishing themselves and finding success, the league will embrace undersized defenseman who have exceptional skill. The days of the big guy that can't skate or pass are long gone.

He was injured... and yeah Canada doesn't take many draft eligibles anyway.

Another list that has Foote pretty low. Don't really get it.
