I'll try for the Dallas Stars, starting from 2000:
2000: Antti Miettinen (224th)
Stars best prospect for a few years now, propbably the best since Brenden Morrow. Doesn't seem to have many holes in his game, though he seems to get injured rather easily these days. Highly skilled, defensively responsible, likes to lay players down on the open ice, plays a mature game.
2001: Jussi Jokinen (192nd)
Another Finn; Jussi is one of Finland's most consistant prospects. Doesn't seem to get any recognition while in fact he has outscored hyped Mikko Koivu in each and every season. In fact, Jussi has one FNL season less under his belt, and no, he's not older, in fact he's a month younger. Mikko's career season: 6 goals - 24 assists for 30 points, Jussi's; 15 goals - 23 assists for 38 points.
2002: David Bararuk (147th)
Coming off a very good season. Bararuk led the Steelheads in ppg for as well the regular season as the playoffs, where another Stars prospect, Dan Ellis grabbed the honors as playoff MVP right before him. Very talented but still a little unproven at the proffesional level, though he seems to be off to a good start this year.
2003: Alexander Naurov (147th)/Elias Granath (196th)
It's getting a bit harder to tell as most of these guys haven't had the time to seperate themselves from the rest, but both were somewhat "steals" in 2003. Granath played for Swedish under 18 squad and is one of 3 Stars prospect with the potential to play for Sweden's defense some day (Fransson, Grossman being the other two). With one season under his belt, Granath made elite prospects top 50 prospect list. Naurov is a slick playmaker with a lot of potential. Very raw and unproven but one to keep your eye on nonetheless.
2004: Fredrik Naslund (104th)
Don't know much about him to be honest, so I'll just copy/paste his elite prospect profile:

Prior to this season this big winger had not seen any senior action, but Västerås’ coach Pär Bäckman played him in a good amount of games and Näslund displayed flashes of brilliance. As the season progressed Näslund saw more and more ice-time in the U18 junior league where he clearly was on another level than most of the opposing forwards. He scored 12 goals and 15 assists in 14 games and was basically unstoppable on the ice. It should however be noted many players in the league were younger and Näslund had another intensity level since he had already played senior hockey. In the U18 World Junior Championships Näslund was quite anonymous and did not really do anything to improve his stock for the draft.
He is an offensively very skilled player. Näslund has great size and is a quite fast skater when he reaches full speed. When he skates with the puck he is tough to stop and has a good scoring touch. He has also good technical skills and reads the game well. However, he has some work to do with his defensive game and his consistency. Näslund should be ready to be a full time regular in the second tier league next season. At 6’4” he is among the biggest players in the league and with good linemates he will be able to show off more of his offensive side next season.
The Sens have always done well in finding some late round gems.
Brandon Bochenski was a 6th round pick in 2001 I believe. He had a shot at the Hobey Baker last year but was a runner up. Not the fastest skater in the world, but has an amazing shot and has size, which always helps. Scored a goal in his first AHL game, albeit a preseason one.
Jan Platil was a 7th rounder in 2001. He plays a nasty style of game which the Senators could use on the blueline. Had a rough first year in the AHL but is off to a great start this year. Potential #5/6 defenseman.
Grant Potulny is a player the Senators would love to have make the NHL. He works extremely hard, has lots of character, and is a great leader. Could become a 3rd line player in the NHL.
Another guy to keep an eye out for is Will Colbert. He was just named the Ottawa 67's captain and is coming off a great season.
as far as second day selections go for Carolina's current group of prospects/young players:
Magnus Kahnberg (7th rd - 212; 2000) - Magnus has definitely seen his stock rise over the past few years. But last year he may have emerged as a pure sniper, leading the SEL in points last season. Once the whole lockout mess is streightened up he'll likely get a look in Lowell if not Carolina itself if he's not too old to bring over by then.
Chad Larose (UFA, signed 2003) - Consistently improved in his 3 seasons in the OHL turning into an offensive machine his final season. His lack of size will hurt his chances of making it to the NHL level, but he has the skills to get there.
Kevin Nastiuk (4th rd - 126; 2003) - Huge improvment from 2003-04 as across the board. I'm not really sure if that's simply a sign of the team in front of him, his improvment or both, but Nastiuk has emerged as a potentialy solid goalie at the NHL level. He'll likely end up as a solid backup somewhere.
Matej Trojovsky (4th rd - 130; 2003) - Size is a huge bonus for the Czech defenseman at 6-5, 220lbs. Not much of an offensive upside here, but this guy isn't going to be relied on for that as a 3rd pairing type guy. he nearly made the Canes out of the 2003-04 preseason and was the last defensman cut from the team since they felt they could develop him better by taking their time with him by giving him another year in the WHL.
Brett Carson (4th rd - 109; 2004) - A fairly good skating d-man with decent defensive skill and offensive upside that has yet to really display what kind of game he has. He is likely to be a replacement for Brett Hedican when he either retires or leaves via Free Agency.
The Canes have found some decent 4th rounders before with Niclas Wallin, Josef Vasicek, Tommy Westlund, Shane Willis and Sami Kapanen all picked over the past decade.
Sergei Mozyakin (02, 9th round, 263rd) - undersized and has had some injury problems, but when healthy, has ripped up the RSL. He has sick offensive talent and has scored at more than a point per game (if I remember right) when he's been playing.
Arsi Piispanen (03, 5th round, 138th) - another player with sick offensive skills, but he's a beanpole. Plays hard. Soft hands. Good stick skills. Organization raves about the guy, but he needs to eat steaks. LOTS of steaks.
6th rd-#168: Antero Niittymaki- Great season last year in the AHL, very good in his short stint witht he big club going 3-0 with a 1.01GAA and a .961 save pct. His AHL totals were 2.02GAA with a .924 save pct. Hitch is really set on Esche though, so it will be interesting to see what happens there.
6th rd-#191: Rejean Beauchemin- Was the best goalie at the WJC recent camp according to coach Sutter. Had a very good year last year and has past a couple good goalies in the Flyers system to put himself behind just Niittymaki on their depth chart.
6th rd-#172: Dennis Seidenberg- I think most people are aware of him by now, but he has to be mentioned.
9th rd- #291- John Carter- Last pick in last years draft. I have never seen him play, but from every source I have found, it indicates his is a boom or bust player, with a big upside. Good size at 6'4", played in a remote league that was not heavily scouted, and would make it hard to guage where he was in comparison to players in higher leagues.
