NHL season winding down

April is almost here! What will the next two weeks hold?

Will the Toronto pick be inside the top-10, or will the Leafs manage to get it up around 11 or 12?

Should be an interesting finish, and the depth of this draft means the Bruins will still end up with a nice prospect with that Leafs pick, even if it isn't as high as it was looking back in January. Credit the Leafs for picking it up and getting a lot of mileage behind James Reimer.

This week, we'll have updated picks for you, some sleeper players in every league that we didn't cover in our recent series of the CHL, NCAA, Europe, juniors and high school prospects.

We're also going to take a look at some of the more dominant teams in history and how they did in the draft/what kinds of NHL careers their players went on to have. Right now, thinking the '79 Brandon Wheat Kings are up there, as will be the '88 Windsor Spitfires. And, we'll even go to the NCAA for the '87 University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux also known as the "Hrkac Circus" in honor of Hobey Baker winner Tony Hrkac.

If there is anything you, the readership would like to see- drop it in the comments section below and we'll try to do it. Sorry- no CHL free agent roundup- that is a bridge too far and is in the "too hard to do" category given the resources on hand- but if there are particular players you're interested in or storylines you'd like to see fleshed out, we'll see what we can do.

  1. If you can find anything out about Jamie Doornbosch Kirk of the Kitchener Rangers that would be great.

    Has great offensive ability so i cant believe he was never drafted. I believe it was Nashville that invited him to camp last year.

    I hear little things from the little people here, but you know the big boys so just curious if you can find out anything from them.

    I have to believe with the amount of times the Bruins have watched the Rangers that they are aware of him.

    Thanks bro
