THN Draft Preview is out

There are some surprises. Thelen at 15, Wolski at 19, and Green at 32 are rated way too low IMO. While Smid at 11, Meszaros at 12, and Dubnyk at 17 are too high.

Can you post the top say 30 or 40? Or would that be a violation of copyright?

Smid at #11 is NOT, too high.

A subscription.

Smid and Meszaros were both rated by THN as two-way defensemen. Smid is a 6'3" d'man who dosen't play a physical game and seems to lack toughness. He passes well, but often overhandles the puck. Meszaros certainly has offensive ability but is only 6' tall. THN dosen't think that's a problem for him. Then they say Mike Green at 6'1-1/2" is too short? They have Green rated at 32 because he was on a bad team. Gimme a break!

I'm going to wait and see if they put it on their website. They've done that in the past.

I picked up a copy today at a local convenience store. There was only a couple of them left so I'm assuming it's been out for a few days here.

Meszaros isn't 6', he's around 6'2. I was just watching a tape of him (Slovaks/Czechs wjc) and to me he stuck out a lot more the Smid did. Meszaros has a nice shot and was more physical. It's only one game but I would take Meszaros over Smid. Also Meszaros was the only '04 prospect playing in the WC's not named Ovechkin.

Green to me looks more around 6'0.

Are you in the US or Canada?

THN has this nasty habit of not getting their US subscribers the Draft preview on time and an even worse history of not getting it to US newstands on time. I had to wait until a week before draft day to get it in Washington via newstand. I'm a subscriber now, so hopefully I'll have it in the next day or two.

I've never thought that there is a single "best" guide. They all bring something to the table.

You can get: The Hockey News, the Redline Report, McKeen's, ISS, or Central Scouting's draft lists. I like to read as many as possible and make my own decisions. Frankly some of the reasoning behind some of their placements is stupid. Other times they can have biases (both for or against) certain players.

US. NY. LI. North Nassau County to be specific.

And usually my mail service is very slow. So I'm surprised that I am the first to get it.

I await mine. No THN in the mail today for me but I am eagerly awaiting it so I can properly start to forumulate my mock draft.

I just picked it up, and what stands out most to me is that Blake Wheeler is 72nd and Roman Tesliuk isn't in the top 100. It's an interesting list, very interesting.
