    The 2017 rankings, at quick glance, look good.
    Steve Kournianos is a smart guy. His rankings can be controversial at times but he watches a lot of hockey, knows a ton about all the prospects and doesn't just throw numbers in front of names - he puts a lot of thought into his rankings. He writes some articles for DobberProspects as well. Here are some of his articles at DP:
    Top 25 Centers for the 2018 NHL Draft
    NHL Draft: Top USHL Prospects
    2018 NHL Draft: Top 10 Goalies

    Thanks for the insight. His web site looks snazzy, but I've never come across his rankings before. So it's hard to know if it's just some hack in his basement with decent coding skills. Appreciate the insight. Would rep ya if I could, but alas, I need to share...

    In the article top 25 centers, Kotkaniemi is not there?

    I agree. I actually like Steve's analysis overall and he takes some undeserved flack at times for misses, probably because he's so enthusiastic with his opinions. I happen to like his approach quite a bit and seem to agree with him more often than not. He's also had some impressive picks in the past. His stuff is well-written and enjoyable to read as well.

    He's got him at 11th overall, and listed as a LW/C, so maybe he doesn't consider him a straight up C?


    500 rankings!? I remember reading some of the profiles last year on that site, 500 seems like a crazy number of players to rank. They either must have a huge array of scouts working on this ranking or they are spread too thin.

    Kotkaniemi spent the entire season playing wing. Steve only considered players who played center most of the season.

    Bizarre because the others sites put Kotkaniemi as a center.

    He's a natural center and projects to play that position in the future, and has played that position for Team Finland in their tournaments like the U18 Worlds. But yeah, he spent the entire season playing wing. It was his rookie season in a pro league.

    I would say the Canes they need that game changing sniper, I'm also not 100% sure MTL keeps the pick knowing Bergevin. They mainly need Center help but they also need scoring wingers and Zadina is the person to take @ 3. I'm just not buying the whole Carolina takes Zadina because of Necas thing ..
