Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by Holly Gunning, Aug 11, 2005.
yawn, smid gets no respect. Not saying he's a top 25 prospect, but would you guys leave Mattias Ohlund off of the top 50 list?
I would have ranked Horton higher than 12th.
Other than that, it seems good.
I was unaware the Smid was Ohlunds level without even playing a game at the NHL level...
Only objection with these rankings is Pouliot suprisngly high ranking (MIN must be tickeled) other then that, good job at compliling the list...its intresting to see various opinions on who the top prospects are
Sweet, Perezhogin goes from outside the top 50 to 25. Habs fans can't complain.
Those are the guys left in the top 10 I guess(not in order of course).
Top 10 looks good, except for maybe Suter. I'd put him around 15th or so, but still a nice list.
20. Andrei Kostitsyn, RW, Montreal Canadiens
22. Dustin Brown, RW, Los Angeles Kings
my order for the list above
Yawn, some guy complaining that his opinion doesn't jive with the opinions of the HF staff.
I'd take Toivonen over Tyutin, Coburn, and Semin.
Tyutin at #17 Wheres Whitney again...oh right............
Hmm..because your a bruins fan?? That doesnt say much.
From my former position as a writer for HF, I despised these threads.
Every Joe Phan, from Joe Phan town, whining about Joe Phan's team's prospect being left off, too low, yakity shmakity blah blah blah.
To all you Joe Phans out there.....comment about the list as a general work and/or omit any reference to a player that plays on your favourite team and we will all be better off.
So where the hell's Max Gordichuk?
No, because of potential. Toivonen has the potential to be a franchise goalies. Tyutin is great, but I just think goalies are more valuable than defenceman.
EDIT---Great list though, I have basically nothing wrong with it.
I am not a big fan of Pouliot, expected Perry to be a bit higher...but everything else meshes nicely. Good work HF.
Thats who he is usually compared to.
shouldn't be suprised, but I would take Ryan Kesler easily over 10 guys on this list.
Hey if you want to 'publish' an online magazine, be prepared for criticism just like any other normal writer.
I know I'm a habs fan, but anyne else suprise to see Price not there. He is the only of the top 6 not listed and there are some listed who went even later. I think they drop the ball on this one. Maybe not top-25 but top-50 yes.
Colaiacovo gets no respect at all.
Price is a mid 1st rounder at best, but the Habs picked him 5th overall. There are plenty of goalies that are better than him and deserve to be on the list more than he does. Leneveau, Leclaire, Ouellet, Harding are all prime examples
Wow he has more upside than all of them. You should see a guy more than twice on TV before running your mouth.
more uspide maybe, but proven skill, i don't think so
