Hodgson and Toews are too high for me, but otherwise a very solid list.

Dont think Toews will be a first rounder. Dont see Cuma not being a late first, especially over Stone. Grachev will be a late 2nd. Boychuk will go above Bailey. Filatov will fall as most russians do.

Just my opinions.

I think that for anyone who has seen Bailey play especially recently would put him over Boychuk. Filatov is too good to fall and has expressed lots of interest in coming over to North America to play next year.

I have a feeling Ennis falls this draft. Two reasons: size and poor showing so far in the playoffs.

Anton Gustafsson should be anywhere between 20-30. Unfortunately he's injured now and won't attend the WJC-18, so you'll miss the opportunity to see him there. But he's a complete 2-way center kind of like a mix between his father Bengt-Ake Gustafsson and Sami Pahlsson. I think he's a pretty safe bet to become a 2nd-3rd line center in the NHL.

AJ Jenks, not sure if hes a first rounder, but that may just be me as i really have never liked his style of play.

But as everyone else said, solid list

good list. I'd put Boychuk higher and Hodgson lower. Just me. I doubt Filatov falls out of the top 10

I could see Zach Dalpe going late first round.

I'm starting to think Stefanovich's inconsistency is gonna leave him out of the first round...

Can anyone tell me what kind of D Stone is?

And so, I too guess he won't fall...

This news on Filatov definitely improves his stock. IMO its the only reason people are saying he could be better than cherapanov.

I think I agree with you. I've watched Québec-Chicoutimi's games on tv and on the net and Stefanovich played a really good game in game #3, but we haven't really seen him in games #1,2 and 4. I wouldn't draft him in the 1st round.

just after a few suggestions and watching a couple junior games I am actually ready to change quite a bit on this list.
