10. Alex Tanguay, LW, 20, Avalanche: Pure scorer with uncanny ability to create space for himself; releases puck as quickly as anybody; needs to work on skating speed and strength; with slick-passing center, should become a sniper.
11. Tim Connolly, C, 19, Islanders: Dynamic player with moves that undress even veteran foes; doesn't work hard on defense but should improve with maturity; hesitates too much in scoring position.
12. Mike Fisher, C, 19, Senators: Doesn't take a shift off; very aggressive on forecheck; has hockey sense to be excellent penalty killer; surprising scoring ability for someone with hard edge to his game; needs to improve on face-offs.
13. Steve Kariya, LW, 21, Canucks: Speed-burner who plays with enthusiasm and smarts; creates space because of willingness to absorb hits; quick release as he penetrates offensive zone helps him score off the rush.
14. David Tanabe, D, 19, Hurricanes: Outstanding skater; handles puck extremely well; big-time offensive potential; not afraid to take chances; special ability to make tape-to-tape passes out of his zone.
15. John Grahame, G, 24, Bruins: With superb glove hand, consistently snares shots headed for top corner; height (6'2") allows him to overcome mechanical flaws; needs to improve puckhandling.
