Your top 10 2014 Draft propsects

Let's play a little game... make your own top 10 list for the upcoming draft! List from 1 to 10 your favorite prospects in order. This is not a draft prediction thread, it's more like making your own big board, except we're limiting it to 10.

Here's mine:
1: Ekblad
2: Bennett
3: Draisaitl
4: Reinhart
5: Dal Colle
6: Nylander
7: Ehlers
8: Ritchie
9: Perlini
10: Virtanen

First, I would just like to note that outside of Ekblad, Reinhart, Ehlers, and Draisaitl I'm basing my opinions on a combination of highlight videos/scouting reports. Those were the only ones I've seen multiple full games of.

Not a big fan of Nylander personally. I've read that there are attitude concerns. I'm also not sure if the elusiveness he displayed on the international ice will translate to the smaller surface. There's no question he's extremely talented with the puck, though.

For me, there is a clear top 8 and then the drop off to the next group which I would have as Larkin, Milano, Fleury, Perlini, Nylander, Tuch, McCann, Kapanen.

If you're going to dock Nylander for attitude problems, shouldn't you do the same with Virtanen? I've heard about some attitude problems with him too.

I'm not criticizing your list BTW, it's a fine list, just a little different than most.

Virtanen's physical attributes are just too enticing to me. I can easily see him being a Carter/Kesler type of winger. Speed/Size/Shot + a little physical play wins me over. At worst, I think he'll be able to carve out a spot somewhere on a team, whereas Nylander is the epitome of a top 6 or bust type of player.

Ok, I gotcha. I do like Virtanen quite a bit too, and I also see the Jeff Carter comparisons, except Virtanen is probably a touch faster.

Here's my top 3. Not ranking defenseman (too difficult via YouTube).

Sam Bennett
Nikolaj Ehlers
Sam Reinhart

Working on 4-10 now.

Michael Dal Colle
Nick Ritchie
Jake Virtanen
Kasperi Kapanen
William Nylander
Leon Draisaitl

Haven't watched everyone so this may change. Contemplating moving Virtanen above Ritchie.

What does everyone love about Leon Draisaitl?

Decent size (6'1", ~205) and he's young enough to grow a little. He's very strong on the puck, good vision, good passer, and he has fairly nice hands. Very mature. Obviously his skating isn't fantastic (and that's probably a reason you don't like him as much), but you can always improve your skating, and you don't have to be the greatest skater in the world to succeed. Just look at Getzlaf and Perry...

BTW, the more I watch of Dal Colle, the more I like him. I think he might be sneaking up a spot or two on my board.

Not to say I disagree, but I think it's funny you say that, as I have a feeling Dal Colle might be a guy who slips on Friday. Really seems weird that the Islanders, who pick where he's projected to go, seem to want nothing to do with making the pick. Also get the sense Vancouver and Toronto really don't want to be picking at their spots, with Vancouver preferring to move both up and down(through a Kesler deal) and Toronto trying to move up despite it not making a ton of sense for them.

I think after four, maybe even three if things go just right, it could be total mayhem until our pick. That'll be awesome to see if it happens.

It's virtually all based on second-hand information and scouting reports, so I myself take it with a load of salt...

1. Ekblad
2. Reinhart
3. Bennett
4. Nylander
5. Draisaitl
6. Ritchie
7. Dal Colle (know/seen especially little on him)
8. Ehlers
9. Fleury
10. Virtanen

HM: Raking beyond there goes beyond my means even more than before, but guys outside of the top-10 that I like especially are Milano and Scherbak.

Yeah, some when I came across them. Not of all the kids, though, to be fair. Apart from Nylander, Scherbak was the guy where the video had the biggest impact on me being high on him, probably. He just reminded me of Nichushkin in those.
