Trunev I will try and see on webcast a couple times, Missiaen might be real hard to see if he doesn't get more playing time though. Kristo I won't see too much next season but once he goes to North Dakota I'll see him a good bit. Too bad he turned down Minnesota, would have seen a ton of him.
Dan, did you ever go to Ottawa a few years back to have a look at the Knights when Nash was playing?

I did watch that on draft day, he certainly does have very nice skating ability. That's it with an 18 yr old, you never know what you're getting. He looks like he could be a good one. Thanks again.

Trunev might be the best value and might be a sleeper.... but at this point there is nothing to put him over Kristo, Qualier, and Missaien who were all picked ahead of him.

We know Timmins obviously liked Kristo the best at this point in time.

This can of course change as they develop... but to rank them out of draft order now is kinda silly in my mind....

There are very few of us on this board who have seen all 5 play... and as a result I take Timmins assessment (evidenced by the draft order) as the defining factor right now.
