I'd have Mayo higher. He was super solid when called on during the Kings' playoff run this year.

Mayo should be a higher, but due to the stacked team the Oil Kings have he didn't get much ice time to prove himself. I think next year he breaks out and is in the top 15 in terms of WHL players.

By draft time Joe Hicketts will be top 10 in the WHL and first round pick imo.

Solid list as always Yandle.

You have Brycen Martin lower then many other rankings I have seen. Could you explain why?
Also I am intrested why you have Lee over Paulic.

I am also on the Mayo bandwagon, but I am also glad to see Atwal in the top 30! Wouldn't say he's the most talented though he is very fun to watch so let the hype begin for him!

As a Royals fan and major Joe Hicketts fan I hope the same.

Martin I am not entirely sure and I had trouble on where I should put him, but for me it comes down to what players games I like more. Martin has a Heatherington aspect to his game (not in terms of play) but he isn't noticeable when you watch him, which is a good thing because he rarely makes mistakes.


I've seen Lee more then Paulic so I have my reasons, but in terms of numbers Paulic is better.

These rankings will change drastically throughout the season just to remember.

I grew up in the same area as Mayo and have seen him all throughout minor hockey.

I agree on Atwal, played some big minutes as soon as he joined the Giants for the second time. Fun to watch that's for sure!

Nikolishin has the potential to b the best player out of the dub imo. If he grows a bit it will certainly help his cause.

Really? During the import draft I read some opinions that claimed he was basically a bottom 6 at this point. The thoughts came from a fairly respected scout, too. I've never seen him play, though.
