    What prospects out there are not getting enough credit?

    Enough credit from Hockeys Future, Central Scouting or just the general media.
    These do not have to be sleeper picks. If you have a beef with where Perry is ranked, for example. I for one think that Perry is going to be an amazing NHLer and isn't getting nearly enough credit for his maturaty and playing style/level. I agree with Don Cherry that Perry will be one of the best NHLers to come from our WJ team. Of course, I'm also a little biased being a knights season ticket holder. But he has the tools.

    for the habs there's Yann Danis. He has a very good technique. Also, he just started to play pro and it's a little bit hard. But he has the tools to be a good #1 goalie imo.

    For the Penguins....perhaps Noah Welch? Don't hear too much talk about him, and he recently was ranked 19 on mckeens if I'm not mistaken (passing Whitney).

    gotta agree with that! Niklas has top-pairing upside and Howard could become a starter.

    Couple of Finns- Jarkko Immonen(NYR) and Jussi Jokinen(DAL). Both late round picks in their respective draft years. Immonen currently leads the SM-Liiga in scoring(or is right near the top), and Jokinen sits around 10th and has lead 2 straight international tournaments filled with NHL players in scoring.

    Perhaps Mikhail Yunkov, though exposure from the World Juniors could change that in a hurry.

    I agree with Matt Greene I think he is going to open a few eyes if he decides to go to the AHL next year. The Oilers really wanted him to sign but he is a loyal guy and didn't want to walk out on his college team this year.

    But here's hoping for next year

    I wouldn't even be surprised if he signed once the college season was over. He hits like a truck apparently

    Don't want to rain on your parade but Jussi Jokinen is not underated. You stars fans rave on about him a lot. He may turn out very good but he is certaintly not underated.

    Having TSN do a between periods feature on him and Maguire gushing about him should disqualify Richards from any under-rated list.

    Us Stars fans? You mean all 3 of us here? We are the ONLY ones who ever talk about him, while everyone else is all enamored with Mikko "Got drafted high because of my brother" Koivu, although things are slowly starting to change ;)

    Not that I was able to watch the game last night, but I still think he's under-rated and equal to Zach Parise.

    If Matt Greene can learn two words, he can become something special.

    Controlled aggression.

    That's because he's not as good as Parise, atleast not offensively.
