I guess it was that hype that surrounds all 15, 16, 17 year old players that have yet to play at a high level. I guess it's normal.
It looks as if he's more a projected mid 2nd round pick from rankings.

Funny, my Google search for Anikeeno reveals only comments made here at HF and on Caps website. We know he is a real prospect, so Google sucks!

Ok from the I can't spell Russian names Department. The reason Anikeeno was not listed is it is Anikienko. That does pull up a Google listing for Russian Prospects.com. So, I guess I suck and Google is ok!@

I've only seen two rankings so far this year. McKeen's has him in the late 1st round (25th), and ISS doesn't have him ranked at all. Like everyone else, it all depends on how he does this season. However, he's definitely been falling.

I've heard he's looked better this season. Anyone have any comments on his (Heshmatpour) play thus far?

He has played well so far this year; it's a nice surprise after watching him last year. His skating has improved and he's playing much better D. He's started to show the offensive side of his game (he got his first OHL goal last week) that we heard about but hadn't seen.

He's playing with a bit of an edge, standing up for teammates (which also didn't happen last year), and playing smarter to this point in the year. He's getting a lot of playing time to this point in the year.

He has improved, but I think he still has a ways to go to before he can be considered a "top" prospect, and I wouldn't put him in the same category as Kindl yet. That's not to say he can't get there, but he's not there yet.

McKeen's is pre-season though. And by all accounts, he's been less then spectacular.

Thanks a lot.

It'll be interesting to see how he progresses.

I believe there are two accounts on this thread alone stating Heshmatpour's play has been much better than "less than spectacular"...

None of us "know." I'm just saying a 6'4 dman with a reputation for being mean has Valabik type potential (+15 spots~)

Who knows if I posted a top 5 before but if the top 5 went more along the lines of early production (keeping in mind skill and talent level), more than actual "potential":

Crosby
Brule
Bertram
Pouliot
Bourret

Guys like Kindl, Latendresse, Anikeenko, and Staal would miss out because their production doesnt "match" (with exception of Bertram, but he's a different story) these 5 guys right now.

1- Sidney Crosby
2- Gilbert Brulé
3- Dan Bertram
4- Alex Bourret
5- Guillaume Latendresse

Latendresse could fall if he doesnt start to produce

What about his shoulder injury also? Is something that could hinder his draft position ala Dan Fritsche?

This is from ISS:

"Has great size and strength. That's the good news, however he still lacks foot speed and lateral movement. Has a choppy stride, a weak skater. This big rearguard is a raw talent that still makes far too many mistakes in the defensive zone."

Is this more or less Boris Valabik, the 10th overall last year? Its a blurb describing Hesh, and it has nothing to do with defaming his integrity; strictly talent and play.

Kindl Has to much raw talent and mental tools to drop to far because of a sub par first month. Cogliano after an amazing U-18 has been getting negative reviews but I didn't drop him to far.....By the end of the season though he'll likely fall and may not be drafted untill the 25-30 range.

This is one of the deepest drafts in a while.

Anyone have an update on how Bertram is doing? He seems to be doing well statistically.
