So, the meeting has begun here at the Conn Smythe Board Room at NHL Offices and the major topic right now are those Western Hockey League players just below the top-tiers performers within the league. Scouts B.J. MacDonald and Peter Sullivan
, who each specialize in the 'Dub', are providing much of the commentary on the players.
The big names, of course, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins
of Red Deer, Ty Rattie
, Joe Morrow and Sven Baertschi
of Portland, Duncan Siemens
of Saskatoon, Mark McNeill
of Prince Albert and David Musil
of Vancouver. All the aformentioned were projected as possible first-round prospects at Central Scouting's mid-term release.
There is some heated discussion right now on players Joel Edmundson
of Moose Jaw, Adam Lowry
of Swift Current, Shane McColgan
of Kelowna, Keegan Lowe
of Edmonton, Sam Grist
of Tri-City and Dylan Wruck
