While it's interesting to watch the playoffs and track scoring chances, the focus for Edmonton fans is the upcoming 2011 NHL Entry Draft. TSN's Bob McKenzie and Craig Button put the finishing touches on their final rankings and love Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (I can't wait until he's drafted so everyone can drop the "Nugent"), NHL Central Scouting has their final split North American / European rankings and also love the Nuge.
None of these guys are Sidney Crosby or Alex Ovechkin, but the addition of high-end talent will impact the top 8-10 teams in this draft for a very long time. We want to hear from you. In the comments below, list your top five prospects, not by predicted draft order, but by whatever ranking system you use, learned or not. We'll compile a "Copper & Blue Reader's Rankings" after a few days of what I assume will be heated discussion.
