Espo seems to have lost hold of the #1 spot on most rankings. It's interesting to see USHL players ranked higher and higher each year. Okposo taken at 7 last year and Petrecki ranked in the top 5.

Hmm... Gagner's not rising? I'd wonder if maybe that's too obvious, but they don't have him top 10, so I don't know.

Woodlief usually has lesser known prospects as "risers" and "fallers" so that could be the reason. Kind of surprised he's not in the top ten, although Kyle does tend to march to the beat of his own drummer.

US: These are the only ones I know enough to talk about and this is the order I'd put them in.

Petrecki
Kane
Van Riemsdyk
Llewellyn
Hoeffel

Yes, he is Alex's younger brother. It was stated on other posts that he needs to improve his skating much like Alex needed to at the same age.

as per the article :

"From a geographic perspective, itıs a phenomenal year in the WHL, which hasnıt seen the likes of this much talent in the last 10 years. "

Better then the 1985 crop two years ago?

i really cant figure why he still has mike hoeffel in the top 10 over james van riemsdyk. also him choosing lesser known players for rising/falling can be the only explanation for not having pat kane and sam gagner as risers, and even jon blum. i dont like this list that much, by performance alone gagner and kane should be in the top 10.

Isn't he that guy with the heavy metal hairdo and an atrocious "knees around his shoulders" skating stride?

It's pretty hard to argue against Ryan Getzlaf, Dion Phaneuf, Brent Seabrook, Braydon Coburn, Eric Fehr, and Shea Weber.

Scouting is as much about projecting a player's future than anything else. Apparently they feel some guys project better than what you think.

The dub has a bunch of guys who will be moving up the charts this year.....whether that's into the TOP 10 or not I don't know, but there are several guys just from the dub who should be 1st round material.

Brandon Sutter - Red Deer
Colton Gillies - Saskatoon
Thomas Hickey - Seattle
Brett Sonne - Calgary
Nick Ross - Regina
Tyson Sexsmith - Vancouver
John Negrin - Kootenay
Eric Doyle - Everett
Jon Blum - Vancouver

and few kids either not eligible or from different leagues, but 1989 born;

Luke Schenn - Kelowna
Kyle Turris - Burnaby

From the highlights I've seen of Gagner and how he's producing, to have guys like Hamill and Repik ahead of him right now just isn't very credible. I'll be surprised if either of those guys is top-10 at year end.

And it's a little premature to be claiming that this year's WHL crop is better than what came out of that league in 2003. Good group this year, to be sure, but that's going a little far.

sexsmith hasnt done very much to prove he is a first rounder. you have to be the #1 goalie for your team if you want to be picked in the first round and sexsmith is not. slade has taken that job from him.

Yes and no... Phaneuf is amazing and I like Weber & Seabrook but, IMO, Getzlaf, Fehr and, more importantly, Coburn are overrated.

Voracek reminds me of Marian Hossa or a Milan Michalek. Big, fast, skilled, can finish and create.

Just watch Hossa play for ATL and that's what I see down the road when Voracek hits in the NHL someday.... I love watching him play.
