Top prospects from the WHL

Who are the top prospects in the WHL for the 2009 draft in Montreal? I mean, not only the top prospects, by now we pretty much know them. What about the guys ranked 10th to 30th? Any recent rankings/scouting reports out there? Will any fan from the WHL make a list?

This would be my top-10, what do you guys think?

01 Evander Kane
02 Brayden Schenn
03 Jared Cowen
04 Scott Glennie
05 Stefan Elliott
06 Carter Ashton
07 Landon Ferraro
08 Ryan Button
09 Jimmy Bubnick
10 Collin Bowman

Personally I would have Schenn #1, but looks good. What are the knocks on Bubnick.. I've never seen him live, and I only have a vague description of what time of player he is. A big guy with some finish.

McNabb, Eakin, Barrie and Howse - All guys I have above Bubnick and Bowman. I see Bowman as a 4th-5th rounder, I imagine more than 10 'dub players are drafted before him.

I dont know about having Bowman ranked at number 10. He's a steady blueliner but is skating isnt great and doesnt make a great first pass. I would take Tyson Barrie before Bowman even though Tyson has an attitude problem.

Braydon McNabb might be the second WHL defenseman taken (after Cowen) in the draft. He's a sleeper pick if I've ever seen one...

I would be Shocked to say the least if McNabb is picked before Stefan Elliott.

McNabb is a sleeper all right, might go late 30's, but is better suited as a mid 50's pick.

Levko Koper is a good sleeper pick for the mid to late rounds. He put up some pretty solid numbers for Spokane, and could be a good 3rd liner in the NHL.
