Simon Stransky LW 73.2
Vladimir Kuznetsov LW 85.3
Maxime Fortier C/RW 89.7
Benjamin Gleason D 89.8
Zach Sawchenko G 95.8
Otto Makinen C 112.3
Michael O’Leary LW 122.5
Veini Vehvilainen (OA) G 122.5
Igor Shvyryov C 122.8
Tobias Eder C 123.7
Matthew Boucher LW 124.0
Tim Wahlgren F 124.2
Ondrej Najman C 124.4

Tobias Eder from what I know there where some concerns if he can really develop into an NHL player, scouts wondering how far ahead into development he was. He had a good U18s a year ago but really didn't do enough to prove himself in the league he was in. He fell a lot, I've seen him in the second round at the beginning of the year after that he just kept falling.


edit: I think Eder should look to move to the CHL, Wiederer was overlooked even though playing in the mens league (like Eder) and got drafted this year. He looks like a good candidate for an overager if he can move to the CHL and do what Wiederer did.

Brinson Pasichnuk - he plays a junior game. he's like Adam Fox but less dynamic, worse defensively, and even more of a 4th forward.

Lyszczarczyk is an excellent prospect aswell..

no idea how Stransky didn't get drafted. he'll be a 3rd round pick next year after he lights up the WHL.

Dawson Davidson, Patrick Bajkov, Brayden Burke are all good prospects too.

Sebastian Aho for the 2nd straight year. 5'10 Number 1 D on Skelleftea who reached the SHL finals. Good shot, great stick, good speed, great vision. Does everything well, just a little smaller. Hope the Habs invite him to camp.

I would have taken Pasichnuk, Fortier, and Shyvyrov in the 4th. Good thing I'm not a GM.


Pasichnuk might be Gostibehere.

Fortier is no worse than Laberge.

Shvyryov should have been drafted.

Those are the three most egregious in my eyes.

Tim Wahlgren is a bit of a headscratcher too.

It should be a crime to have a long last name in which the consonant-to-vowel ratio is 3:1 or greater.

Antoine Samuel who went to the worst team in the CHL and actually gave them a legitimate chance to win every night.

Daniel Marmenlind who some scouts believe will be better then Gustavsson.

Joseph Raaymakers and Stephen Dhillon. Two back-up goalies that will be starters next season. Both with a good amount of potential.

Mäkinen has average size and skating ability. Add that to limited offensive skills, no surprise he went undrafted. Not sure how he was ranked so high to begin with(2nd round by some).

For me the big one is Shvyryov. He probably just didn't get enough looks. I had him really high on my draft board. The good news for me is, as we saw with Borgstrom (23) and Korshkov (31), teams still make some significant misses in Europe, and maybe next year I'll be vindicated.

Were in a league where Nathan Noel goes undrafted then gets picked in the 3rd the following season when he hasn't improved at all, alot of dumb NHL scouts out there.

I really thought Gleason would get drafted and am surprised he wasn't.

He was picked in the 4th, 113 OA - and I really can't see how you can call it a bad selection.

Dumbfounded over Lizard Sticks not being drafted. I thought for sure he'd go, as early as the 5th.

Surprised Sawchenko wasn't drafted. I'd expect him to end up as an invite somewhere for sure.

Lizard Sticks sounds like a good name for a southern rock band.

Wahlgren has to be his skating... it has improved but still need work.

That being said a guy who sees the ice like he does and can shoot so well while being gritty, and already showed he could hold his own in the SHL should have been picked.

He can prove everyone wrong in the Allsvenskan next year, should get pretty good minutes in a league where if he excels will not be overlooked again.

Don't know how good he actually is, but I'm disappointed Sam Duggan didn't get picked. He's supposed to be the best British prospect in like forever.

Igor Shvyryov is the one im most surprised about, I wish Hexy would've used a late round pick on him.

Not simply just bad, but moreso confusing. Noel was undrafted last year, and didn't really improve even though he's a year old...and now he gets drafted? And ahead of guys who are better than him and younger?
