Kyle Turris, Burnaby - Thought I was really sticking my neck out way back in September when I had him in the middle of the first round. So much for that. Franchise centre. Don't worry, he'll fill out enough. I will be stunned if he's not one of the first two picks in the draft.
Riley Nash, Salmon Arm - Big time riser in the second half. Very complete player. Is knocking on the door of the first round.
Casey Pierro-Zabotel, Merritt - Seems like he's always on cruise, and that bothers me. Deadly around the net, however. Wish he used his size more. Very risky pick, but worth a 2nd round gamble.
Russell Goodman, Nanaimo - Good playoff run bumped his stock up a bit. Could be a middle rounder now.
Jamie Benn, Victoria - Has a good shot, but he sits around the slot waiting for his teammates to dig the puck out of the corner. Probably a middle rounder, but not very high on my list.
Chris Rawlings, Powell River - Looked better last season than this. Still worth a late pick.
Justin Courtnall, Burnaby - Okay, the fact Central measured him at 6-3 (he was listed at 6-1 all year) doesn't change much. Yeah, he skates well for his size. But that's about it.
Ben Winnett, Salmon Arm - Don't really like this player. Smallish and soft. But might have enough skill to draw late round interest.
