Sorry, don’t want to jam up on Racki here, but just finished reading Elliotte Friedman’s Mondays 30 thoughts and I can’t stress how awesome it is. Everyone needs to read this. Its on CBC’s website every week and always interesting.

Absolutely money. Now scroll down and continue on with Racki’s awesome post where he admits that he was wrong.

Bob McKenzie – Examining the Logic Behind Central Scouting Rankings
Also, the Edmonton Sun has an article on why Seguin topped the list.

We will likely prep a collection of draft info for around that time.
