Hockeyâ€™s Future Top 50 NHL Prospects, 31-40
Thanks again for all the work!
Thanks alot. I was beginning to wonder what happened to the rest of the list.
My first impression is that I'm very surprised that Hainsey is ranked above Perezhogin. I don't think you'll find a single Habs follower who would put them in that order.
Looks like Steen's in the top 30... possible 25.
Ahead of Higgins.
EDIT: Great work.
How in the world is Robert Nilsson ahead of Chris Higgins on the list? BTW, you've got Leksand down as Nilssons team, when really hes playing for a team in Switzerland.
Other words, great work guys!
Not anymore. They lost their quarterfinal series, and thus his season is finished.
yeah and this sucks ..
Hainsey before perezhogin ...sure hainsey skills are great .. but he's really not enough mature to play in the NHL even if he's 23 !
give me a break !
and IMO higgins is as good as steen !
anyway this ranking is not real accurate IMO in terms of habs prospects !
I think it is.
Perez ain't as good as some Hab fans make him out to be.
No Eriksson, Miettinen, Daley or Jokinen is pretty sad, especially since I don't agree with alot of prospects being on it. Guess the Stars prospects will continue to be underrated anyway..
actually i thought montreal had 3 prospects in this ranking !
Higgins and Perezhogin I expected : Kastitsyn top 25 ; Higgins top 30 ; perezhogin top 40 !
and hainse to rot in the minor for the rest of his career !
moral of the story ... i suck at ranking players
Yes it seems so, at the swedish page www.eliteprospects.com, on the left side, top 100 prospect, Loui Erikssson moved up from 4th to 2nd place just after Alexander Steen and before Robert Nilsson, updated in march 2004,
Your right, he's even better.
Hrmmmmm, NJ is 4th in the other ranking and will only have 1 guy is this ranking......A little odd.
Well Perezhogin is 5th in points for AHL rookies, he's only 6 points back from Noah Clarke. He also has a 1 point per game avrage in his last 40 games (Since Jarvis gave him some ice time). There's also a guy named Travor Timmins, director of personnal, who said 2 weeks ago that Perezhogin became this year Bulldogs' best player.
The thing that bothers me, is how can HF rank Canadiens as the best team in terms of prospects, and the same time rank their prospects so deep in their chart?
Aulin should be a little higher, but it's nice to see Fehr recognized as "rising with a bullet". He was a steal.
I think it has to do w/ the number of high end pospects that a team has. No offense to anyone here, but there is little difference between #50 and #30 as far as tallent goes. So why people are getting upset w/ where a player is put is well beyond me. Besides, w/o a crystal ball noone knows who will end up where when there careers are over.
Thanks to the staff for taking the time to put this together, if for no other reason then to start discussions.
You knew it was only a matter of time before this was said :p
Kyle Wellwood has 46 points in 65 games... on one of the worst AHL teams. That doesn't mean he deserves to be on the list. Perezhogin has 43 in 69 games.
I think HF ranks the organizations in terms of depth.
I'm not upset, I just disagree
I'm surprised that Upshall is so low on the list, especially since some of the concerns about his limited scoring upside should be partially alleviated by the decent numbers (18 pts in 22 games) he's had in the AHL.
Suprised to see Aulin ranked ahead of Oullet
I'm surprised Ouellet's not in the top 30.
They thought he was a little old for a prospect. 22. Not his fault he's behind Kolzig.
In that case, Penguins would be ranked first...
BTW, to add to your point, Michel Ouellet has 27 goals as a rookie for WB, yet he's not in the top 50 prospects, and rightfully so.
Hainsey and Aulin are a tad high IMO.
I would pick Krajicek over Hainsey right now.
And Fehr over Aulin.
