Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by theo6060, Feb 25, 2004.
Who do you think is the most overrated and underrated prospects for the 2004 draft?
I love the guy, but he's not good enough to warrant a #2 ranking by CSB. I can see him going in the 21-26 range, but definitely not that high.
Underrated---i dunno. there are usually few prospects who are underrated going into drafts.
Redline just moved him up to #12 overall. Looks like CSS isn't alone in their projection of him.
Mike Green(Someone had him in the top 5)
I agree with Green and Schwarz. Not sure about Schremp, I sort of get the impression he's been getting a bit more attention than he deserves.
I have to admit, I think Marek Schwartz is the most overrated. Not that he's any good, but he didn't strike me as being a top 10 draft prospect in the WJC's. I thought Montoya, on the other hand, was the most underrated player in that tournament from what I saw of him (Lepisto be damned!).
Schremp is my pick for underrated, everyone seems to like his talent but his attitude is extremely overplayed.
For a kid who has the skill to be a top 3 pick I've seen him fall out of the top 10 way too often.
may not be likely underrated player but there is one player outa junior a his name is, Mason Raymond, scouts have been looking at him as well as bertram!! maymond will suprise people but needs to put on the pounds!!!
I've only seen him three times, but Michael Funk struck me as someone who had all the tools to be a top 4 NHL defenseman. Good size (needs to fill out, though), skating, puck moving and decision making. CSS rated he and Fistric both in the mid 20s, and assuming Fistric is rated appropriately, I think Funk should be rated higher.
Mike Green overated....HA
With Chipchura appearing in so many top ten lists, I'll nominate him.
I second that nomination
Underrated I would say Mark Tobin who is 91 in NA. The team who will draft him will get a great player
Overrated... Travis Zajac
Underrated... Sean Garrity (Green Bay - USHL)... due to his mono earlier this year
Scouts are there for Bertram.
Raymond wasn't a 1st or 2nd All-Star team selection.
Never even heard of this kid.
Overrated: Schremp and Smid.
Underrated: Salmonsson and Green.
Overated: Ovechkin (just a bit, best talent in awhile but he cant single handily turn Pittsburg around, just warning you Pen fans.) I also think Wolski gets to much press, he's soft,
Underated: Schremp, Schwarz (could be Richter), Lisin,O'Neil, Carl Soderburg, T.J. Hensick, Montoya...goaltending is a big head game, and he's got one of the best heads on any goaltender.BRUCCCEE GRAHM ...he rocks.
