Interesting list. Good to see Geordie and Matt on it. This is a pretty solid group out of the WHL and both Bronco players will no eagerly anticpate the Central Scouting Mid-Term Rankings due out sometime in January.

Central Scouting has lost a little bit of it's pull over the years due to NHL teams liking certain players and going with their scouts rather than the NHL's panel.

Hopefully Broncos goaltender Ian Curtis can get some extra looks in the coming weeks and at least get his name on the board somewhere. At 6'5 I'm surprised the scouts left him off the list. They salivate over size... can't teach size right?
