More Draft Day Resources

Browsing the internet today I found an absolutely fantastic blog for everyone looking to get some first hand scouting reports of WHLers. NHL Draft Notes is 'A Western perspective on the NHL Draft, Prospects, and the NHL Scouting Community' from Michael Remmerde, a scout and contributing editor of Redline Reports.

He goes through most if not all of the top draft eligible WHLers and Tier II Jr. league players for this draft.

MG had another excellent pre draft post in which he goes through ESPN's mock draft. They have Calgary selecting Jordan Eberle. Here's NHL Draft Notes' perspective on Eberle. Not entirely encouraging, and this note is particularly damaging:

Casual player - effort level is never there. (Source)

Of one of MG's potential mock draft guys, Joe Colborne:

Certain first rounder, and probably right in the middle near the 15th pick. I'm hearing there may be a team or two drafting near the end of the first that are trying to move up to pick him. In any case, it seems unlikely he slide lower than the 16th-18th overall range. (Source)

You can also read about Matt Calvert here and Kyle Beach here.

You never know what you're going to find on that there internet.
