NHL Central Scourting
North America rankings
Quick thought. Lazar at 8th seems pretty low. Id likely slot him 3-5.
I like Morrissey a lot. Pulock/Morrissey battle.
The mysterious Lipon continues. Where does he get drafted?
If only Petan had better size. And staying with Portland, Bjorkstrand will be a great late pickup.
Zykov, huge bump. Interesting to see if he can be more consistent throughout the year.
Gauthier at 4 is surprising. They must be going on his size and smarts because he hasn't had the chance to impress that much.
I am expecting Erne to be the third best skater from the Q.
Sorenson way to far down the list for me.
Monahan clear cut #1 at this point.
Nurse continues to rise; I have to start paying more attention to him.
Domi should get drafted over Rychel.
Zadorov easily the 2nd best defender......and might surpass Nurse by seasons end.
No Jeremy Gregoire from Chicoutimi who was on Canada's U18 team at Hlinka tournament.
Zykov ahead of Mantha,Erne is mind boggling IMO.
Sorensen at 16 is ridiculous. He's easily a top10 in the Q, IMO.
As for the OHL, Subban seems pretty low.
Looking at the rankings and I see so many players with top6 potential it's unbelievable.
Quickly : Shinkaruk,Klimchuk,Lazar,MacKinnon,Drouin,Gauthier ,Erne,Mantha,Carrier,Duclair,Sorensen,Monahan,Rych el,Domi,Horvat.
These players all have a very good chance at being top6 player in the NHL. I count 15, and this doesn't count Europeans, defenseman and goaltenders. There will be a lot of talent left in the second-third round this year.
