I'll post the ranking for the Major Junior Canadian leagues within the next few days as a follow up, as well as the players I thought were missed in these leagues from the NHL's list.  If you would like to view the list from the NHL release, click here.

As far as Minnesota Duluth recruits go, Blake Heinrich (72), Adam Johnson (135), Willie Raskob (173), Neal Pionk (174), and Brett Boehm (201) all made the list.  Interesting enough, I thought more recruits/current players could have made the list, which I'll post later, but as for now we'll have to wait and see.

Its sad how Minnesota isn't pulling any of the big recruits anymore. They are on the top right now, but I see that ending very soon. Once their first line leaves Minnesota is going to hit a rough patch I believe

That's true if you go only by CSB ranking. They currently have committed the #1 (Cammarata), #3 (Kloos), and #12 (Guertler) scorers in the USHL; all of those players don't have prototypical NHL size, but are likely to be four-year college players. Add Vannelli, Fasching, and Brodzinski, and I don't think they're all that worried.

Agree with #2 here. Gophers have a lot of solid recruits in the making. To be honest, how Cammarata and Michaelson didn't make the list is beyond me. I don't think the Gophers will be rebuilding for a few anyway, more like reloading.

Michaelson? He has been passed over in two straight drafts already, and really hasn't done anything to warrant getting drafted.

how BRODZINSKI ISNT ON THIS LIST IS A CRIME ES LEADING THE USHL IN GOALS AND TOP 5 IN POINTS ALL THE D THEY HAVE AHEAD OF HIM CANT DO THE THINGS HE CAN FOR A TEAM
