    I've got a whole list of prospects on a fantasy team that I don't know much about so I was looking for some useful insight on any and all of the players.

    Duncan Milroy
    Pavel Vorobiev
    Loui Eriksson
    Rod Sarich
    John Doherty
    Mark Fistric
    Stefan Ruzicka
    Brian Collins
    Darcy Robinson
    Sergei Kliazmine
    Vladimir Gorbunov
    Ivan Nepriayev
    Kevin Nastiuk
    Kiel McLeod
    Edward Caron
    Martti Jarventie
    Billy Thompson
    Patrik Valcak
    Alex Goligoski
    Clayton Barthel
    Alexander Nikulin
    Richard Demen-Willaume
    Jaroslav Mrazek
    Stanislav Balan

    Vladimir Mihalik
    Kristopher Letang
    Mark Fraser
    Raymond Macias
    Cal O'Reilly
    Juho Mielonen
    Scott Todd

    Any info on these guys would be much appreciated.
    I'd even like to see what some people think my top 10 would look like.

    I used to know lots about prospects before the strike/lockout but I admittedly don't know much anymore.

    Thanks guys

    Your top 10 should include:
    Alex Goligoski
    Kristopher Letang

    Several players listed are AHL career guys (like Milroy) or won't come back in North America (Jarventie).....

    Vladimir Mihalik
    Kristopher Letang

    Cal O'Reilly

    My top 9.
    The ones in bold are the ones I believe will have the best NHL careers. Out of all of them I think Letang will be the best.

    Brandon Yip has been out of BU's lineup for about a month now with a dislocated shoulder.

    John Doherty is a UNH transfer playing at Quinnipiac right now and having a pretty good year so far.

    I don't consider myself a "prospect expert" but what else would like to know about these two?

    I can give you the goods on Alex Goligoski too, but we have enough of the Gopher Nation here that they'll be more than happy to chime in on him, so I'll leave it to them.

    Cal O'Reilly is an excellent little sleeper prospect. A late round pick of the Predators. Last year he had over 80 assists in the OHL with the Spitfires, and he's a hard little worker. He earned a contract from the Preds and is having quite the excellent rookie season in the AHL. I believe he's got about 14 points in 16 games, which is excellent considering I thought he'd have some trouble adjusting to the pro game, considering he's on the smaller side (a generous 5'11). Think of him as a Kyle Wellwood part deux. They've travelled down very similar paths, but Wellwood got a lot more press/fanfare around here simply because he's a Leafs prospect. O'Reilly is a much better skater, then Wellwood was coming out of junior (which was his biggest knock). He doesn't quite have the puck skills or the goal scoring ability of Wellwood though. But he's every bit as good of a playmaker, if not better IMO. He's also a better player in traffic and goes to the net harder (although don't mistake him for a PF).

    He's a really solid prospect IMO, and eventually he's going to get some sort of attention if he keeps producing as he has. Mckeens had some very, very positive things to say about him in their latest AHL game report of the Admirals. Basically saying he was the Preds second best prospect behind Radulov on the team.
