With the draft rapidly approaching, I decided to put together a table summarizing the various first round targets we've profiled over the last couple of weeks. I have included each players rankings according to NHL CS, ISS and Corey Pronman. If you to check out rankings by other consensus outfits, make sure to drop by this post over at C&B.

Flames Draft Targets: Dark Horses and Sleepers

While we have profiled a number of players ranging from Sven Bartschi to Ryan Murphy, the truth is there are still a number of possible picks for the Flames in the first round. In addition, the club has two more picks inside the top-60 thanks to the Erixon trade and may even choose to add another asset or two by trading down or moving a body. 

Unfortunately with the draft mere days away we don't have time to do an in-depth profile of every possible top-60 Flames target. To compensate, I have put together this list of potential Calgary "sleepers and darkhorses". Feel free to add any more names or details in the comments as you see fit.

Perhaps the most interesting of the prospects we've covered so far is Matt Puempel. The OHL's rookie of the year in 2009-10 after scoring 34 goals and 69 in 59 games, Puempel was considered a probable top-10 talent into the season before injuries and circumstances derailed things a bit. He still pops up in the first round on most lists, but unless someone goes off-board Puempel will most certainly be available when 13 rolls around.

First Round Targets: Ryan Murphy

I am mostly convinced the Flames should expend their first round pick on a forward this year. The forwards corps of this org are rather dismal outside of one or two bright spots, and even those guys aren't guaranteed to be impact guys in the NHL. In fact, I'd say you can count the number of forwards who project to be consistent top-6 producers on no hands, if you catch my drift.
