Vincour is amazing, not Brayden Schenn amazing but very smart and good. When he's on the ice expect some great plays to be made.

I'm a very avid junior hockey follower. I also know that the 2003 draft class was one of the best in a long long long time and until I see some results from the 09 one there's no sense in even talking about it in the same breath.

I get that you also follow junior hockey, but how exactly do you know how amazing Brayden Schenn is? Have you ever seen a game he's been in? I personally live in the city he plays in and know he is going to be great so im not disputing that. But are you taking the word of HF posters that the 09 draft is so great and thinking that is going to make it better then an 03 draft that has produced many many stars already?

Maybe he's simply not as inclined to hype a draft that's still more than a year away over one that has already yielded 2 players who have been the leading scorers on Cup-winning teams, 4 phenomenal young defensemen who could conceivably all be playing for a deep Canadian Olympic team in 2010 (one of which is a Norris candidate), a PPG player who's arguably the best PKing forward in the NHL, as well as a 40 win goaltender, 2 40 goal scorers, 5 30 goal scorers, and 7 20 goal scorers. And that's only 5 years on.

Let's not forget that in 2006, Angelo Esposito was getting touted to no end as the #1 pick for the 2007 draft. A lot can change between now and June 2009.
