Early look 2016 NHL draft

I know i am going to take heat because i have Sean Day down in my rankings, but I just do not like his hockey sense at all....the kid has world class 1st overall skill but he can not put it together at all...he is the biggest boom or bust of the draft IMO...there are probably some Euro's i have not seen or even really heard of yet for this draft but this is an early look and some people will throw names out which i like to take notice of and see if i can get to see them play.

great speed and plays both ends of the ice, but very questionable hockey sense....I have him 6th to 7th round.

Great list, thanks for the early look.

Hard to disagree when these guys are so far away, but I do think that both Clague and Steel end up going higher. Stacked draft though, not many obvious candidates to drop to allow for that.

Some other high end western prospects not mentioned: Beck Malenstyn, David Quenneville(I'm guessing he just slipped your mind?), Quinn Benjafield, Kaden Elder, Tanner Kaspick, Josh Mahura, Davis Koch, Kody McDonald, Morgan Geekie, Ryely Mckinstry.

Great list as usual, Scoutman!

I thought Gauthier would be a bit higher. Like top-20ish.

no Quenneville never slipped my mind...at 5'08 for a defender it will be hard for a player like that to get drafted in the first two round unless in the WHL he is so great that they can not pass him up...I put Girard there but even him i think will fall to 3rd or 4th.

Thanks for the list scoutman, always enjoy getting an early look. What can you tell me about Chychrun and Krys? What are their biggest strengths and biggest weaknesses at this point? What kind of games do they play?

again same as Quinniville and Girard....Vete is going to have to be pretty special on defense to be sub 5'09 or shorter....i mean really this is midget they are in now...a defender at 5'08 or 5'09 is only going to grow another inch or two if at all....so teams are scared taking a 5'09 forward let alone a 5'09 defender...Candella i have as the first pick in the 3rd round and Ang i have early early 3rd too

How does Sokolov compare to guys like Ovechkin and Kovalchuk?

Thanks for the list.

German Rubtsov, Valeri Naumenko, Mikhail Shabanov, Alexander Poluektov are all players with first round talent. They're part of the pwerhouse Vutyaz squad that won the World Selects '98 tournament.

Fabbro ahead of Clague? I don't get it.

And Malenstyn behind Legein, Hannoun, and Dube? Not in my books.

Good point about all of those d men being diminutive. It'll interesting to track if any of them grow a couple inches.

Few others names that came to me: Ty Ronning, Zachary Sawchenko, Evan Sarthou, Elijah Francis, Matt Barberis, Cole Johnson

Wow. I am surprised to see you have Tobias Eder at 44.
I thought he would probably be the most intriguing German prospect for that draft, but I would not have expected to see him so high on a list of someone, who actually knows his stuff.
I have only seen him a couple of times myself, but on those occasions he looked very good. Hopefully he can stay in the concersation for the first three rounds.

OMG I forgot to add Malenstyn, he is a gem im fixing him now.......as for Fabbro and Clague, well i like Fabbro a little more than Clague, that is personal preference.

He really impressed me at the U17s this year, I personally think he is going to turn out to be a gem.

funny thing is I have not seen Francis play yet, this is a first not to see everyone play for the Q draft.......Ronning i really like, he reminds me of his father.

Hey Scoutman, how close are the top defensemen in your eyes? Specifically Chychrun, Krys, Clague, Fabbro, Day, Lindgren? Seems like there's a drop after these guys.

this is a pretty special year for defense......Chychrun and Krys i think are close in impact wise and same as Lindgren......Lindgren I really like his booming hits, great shot, smart play, skating, passing, defensive play he is a great all around defender...........Chychrun i like his puck moving, excellent amazing shot, he is so smart, great at both ends of the ice, his size he uses...........Krys is all about smarts, great or castrating plays on the ice, he makes hard plays look so easy, he is a great skater, good puck handler, excellent in own zone, smart pincher, great passer...........Clague is a guy who is extremly smart he controls the game, makes defensive play look easy, he is always in the right position i do not remember ever seeing him out of position, he works hard on the ice and does a good job jamming for hte puck, he is a great passer and knows how to kick start the offense, this guy is a major big time prospect.......Dante Fabbro, i have to say i always have a soft spot for offensive defenders, I think the art of offense is getting lost with some defenders now and i hate seeing that as a lot of coaches want all defenders to play hard core defense and slack on the offense now but Fabbro is amazing offensive defender, he is a good skater, great puck handler, excellent passing on the fly or from the breakout, he is a good shooter, very smart on the ice, i like his explosive ability in the offensive end, i also find he does not leave his end out to dry to often either. Any of these defenders could move up higher than i have then ranked, they are all amazing.....now Day I am not sold on the guy, I have him ranked still high but he is a guy by the time i can see either rising right up to the top or falling like Nick Ebert did, Day is an amazing skater, hands down the best in the draft, he has good puck handling skills, exciting puck handling, good passing, excellent offensive rushes but now is the bad, i find with his rushes he has trouble creating decent offense on those rushes, I find he does not pick his times right, he misses capitolizing on plays because i find he does not see everyone on the ice, i find and you can see it watching him he is use to his skating getting him out of trouble and his lack of hockey sense but as he is moving up in the ranks his skating though amazing is not pulling him out of situations he could get away with and he is not adapting well IMO.

Anderson and O'Leary are miles apart right now...maybe not by draft day, but right now Anderson is at the top of his class IMO. otherwise interesting list, nice look at some different regions side by side

Nice to have some info on 2016 already. As a Finn, I'd love to hear your opinion on Patrik Laine and Jesse Puljujärvi. Could you see them finish in top-10 or even top-5? They are touted as very good prospects not just in Finland's scale, and I believe Laine was one goal away from tying the best u18 goal scorer in the A-juniors (u20?) being one year younger than the record setter. Anyways, I'd like to hear what you think about them and their potential.

Anderson i really liked a lot and i can see him sneaking up into the 1st round easy, O'Leary IMO is a great all around player with some amazing hands and amazing IQ, he is going to surprise.

Thanks as always.
Parker Aucoin is the only glaring omission for me, best pure goal scorer from a very deep Western Canada 98 group.
I agree with your assessment of Quenneville he should be a good Junior player but at that size it will be tough to make the pros.
As was pointed out I would have Clague over Fabbro but they are very close.
Why is Campoli so low? I was very impressed with him at the All-State game.

Ia this, at the moment, looking to be another deep draft? If so, 2013, 2015, 2016 possibly deep drafts?

Parker hasn't impressed me this year. Was a stud last year though.
