Beyond Tomorrow: The Class of 2016

*

With the 2016 NHL Draft just a little under two years away, there is still a lot to be learned about these late-1997 and 1998-born players. There is no overwhelming consensus as to who will be picked first overall like there is for the 2015 draft, but Dmitry Sokolov is one of a few favorites as well as Sean Day, the fourth player to be granted “exceptional player status” by the Ontario Hockey Federation.

*

Beyond Tomorrow will track and feature some of these players eligible for the draft throughout the next year and present several in-depth profiles of hockey’s elite 16-year-old players.… read more

I'd pick Patrik Laine easily in the top-2 and at this point propably 1st overall. Only Chychrun i'd be very hesitant to pass up.

Puljujarvi is another player i'd propably have in my top-7 right now.

No clue how those players didn't get to that list, the omission of Laine is inexplicable.

Patrik Laine is interchangeable with Matthews at this point. He is really skilled, fast and a goal scorer. Recently saw both play and was really impressed by both. I was actually surprised at how dominant Laine was. You have to see him play to see that he has the complete game along with really great size.

Thank you everyone for reading. I prefaced the article by stating this preliminary list of players are those with first round potential that I would like to feature throughout the upcoming hockey season. This is by no means a "top-10" list.

My bad i thought you meant that was your list of most likely 1st overall pick candidates in '16 draft.

Has any prospect ever received an "A" rating when it comes to "probability of reaching potential"??

I think Parise did but I don't know the circumstances or the reasoning behind that as it was before my time. Most prospects, including the high end ones, are at a B by the time they have graduated.

Carl Hagelin is one that comes to my mind, he was 7.0A.

I think Michael Campoli is going to be a big surprise in the NTDP this season. Very curious how he compares to Chad Kris. Thy are very different styles but I think Campoli may be a better defenseman. We shall see.

David Quenneville is my favorite player out of this draft, and I think he will easily jump in the rankings between now and the draft.

Michael McLeod and Tyson Jost are going to be stars in their respective junior leagues.
