Puck Prospectus on 2009 NHL Drafted Players from CHL

1

Looks like I'm the guy who posts the links to PP. Their projection system isn't perfect, but it does have a moderately better correlation with NHL success than does draft position, so it's worth looking at. Some Caps notes: Eakin seems to have been drafted in about the right spot. Fleming has a poor projection. Mitchell has an even worse projection, but you already knew that. Cassavant's projection is equivalent to Eakin's and much higher than anyone else in the 5th-7th rounds. Non-Caps notes: The system loves Schenn and Ellis and hates Duchene, Kassian and Holland (relative to their draft spots. Duchene is not bad but projects as by far the worst of the top 11. Kassian's and Holland's projections are about equal to Eakin and Cassavant). Possible sleepers: Stephan Elliot, Tyson Barrie, Brayden McNabb, Olivier Roy. Note that the system likes the WHL and dislikes the OHL relative to the scouts this year.
