Bob McKenzie’s 2012 NHL Draft Rankings

Tonight TSN’s Bob McKenzie has broadcast his list of the top players in the draft.  McKenzie has a stellar record for draft predictions and here are his top-30 rankings along with my thoughts.

1. Nail Yakupov
2. Ryan Murray
3. Filip Forsberg
4. Griffin Reinhart
5. Alex Galchenyuk
6. Matt Dumba
7. Teuvo Teravainen
8. Morgan Rielly
9. Jacob Trouba
10. Olli Maatta
11. Radek Faksa
12. Mikhail Grigorenko
13. Zemgus Girgensons
14. Cody Ceci
15. Hampus Lindholm
16. Slater Koekkoek
17. Derrick Pouliot
18. Thomas Wilson
19. Tomas Hertl
20. Brandan Gaunce
21. Matthew Finn
22. Brady Skjei
23. Stefan Matteau
24. Andrei Vasilevski
25. Malcolm Subban
26. Michael Matheson
27. Sebastien Collberg
28. Scott Laughton
29. Tanner Pearson
30. Phillip Di Giuseppe

There’s nothing radically different about McKenzie’s list as compared to other publications, although he has the two top goaltenders rated higher than most along with a few other idiosyncrasies.  With this list out my own draft predictions are right around the corner.
