    do one or both of the following:

    1 - for each of the thirty teams, list who you believe is the best prospects outside of the team's top 15

    2 - pick a couple prospects outside their team's top 15 (no more than one from each team you list) that you would love to add to your own fav team's group of prospects, and why / what they add to the depth

    ok.............. GO :banana:

    :edit: of course when i say top fifteen, i mean by hf standars

    for example, as a colorado fan, i'd like to add cam paddock to the organization from the penguins. in junior, he was a complete player with speed, offense, physical play, fighting, leadership, and defense..

    imo, he could develop into a player similar to hinote, however with better hands and a better puck control game... i would really like to see him down the line on the avs fourth line (maybe third) creating energy with his speed and forecheck

    For the flames:

    David VanderGulik

    Think he could be a good offensive guy in the future for the flames...

    Also Greg Moore who was traded to nyr was a solid prospect...I like Chris Simon, but was also high on Moore.

    Players in BOLD are guys I'd like the Sharks to have.

    Anaheim - Kyle Klubertanz next awesome unknown NCAA defenseman
    Atlanta - Juraj Gracik
    Boston - Martins Karsums skill player who loves to hit
    Buffalo - Atrem Kryukov
    Calgary - Egor Shastin
    Carolina - Magnus Akerlund
    Chicago - Bryan Bickell big time project who could pay off
    Colorado - Mikko Viitanen
    Columbus - Petr Pohl
    Dallas - Matt Nickerson
    Detroit - Drew MacIntyre
    Edmonton - Jason Platt no reason other than he's a Bay Area kid...PR move
    Florida - Petr Taticek take a chance on his upside
    Los Angeles - Ryan Munce NOTE: saw Cammer's and Gleason's name on "Notables" but that has to be neglect (I'd for sure take Gleason)
    Minnesota - Clayton Stoner besides the cool name, he could be a top 4 guy
    Montreal - Duncan Milroy
    Nashville - Alexander Sulzer Sharks lack Germans
    New Jersey - Ahren Nittel
    New York (I) - Wes O'Neill love them big defenders
    New York (R) - Bruce Graham wanted the Sharks to take him in the first round this past draft, tantalizing blend of size n skill...just needs to take advantage of it more often
    Ottawa - Jeff Glass either him or Regin...both have potential to be solid players
    Philadelphia - Ben Eager
    Phoenix - Jason Jaspers
    Pittsburgh - Ondrej Nemec
    St. Louis - Colin Hemingway
    San Jose - Jason Churchill
    Tampa Bay - Jonathan Boutin
    Toronto - Robert Earl
    Vancouver - Julien Ellis-Plante
    Washington - Sami Lepisto about 3 or 4 guys I wouldn't mind adding but I think Lepisto will be a solid NHL player for certain

    Anaheim - Nate Saunders- Big and rugged defensive defenseman (with a little upside)
    Atlanta - Scott Lehman- good defenceman in all situation
    Boston - Ben Walter- Good all around player
    Buffalo - Artem Kriukov- Needs to find his game, but if he does :eek:
    Calgary - Richie Rigier- Rather Smallish, but will overcome that with talent and a hard work
    Carolina - Antti Jokela has a shot at miking a good nhl starter...but more probably will stay in Finland
    Chicago - Matt Keith The kid can put up pts
    Colorado - Richard Demen-Willaume has some potentiel to become a good all around D-men
    Columbus - Trevor Hendrixx- The guy can put up pts, is good defensively, Hits and even fights at will... What else can U ask from a 9th rounder :dunno:
    Dallas - Raymond Sawada- Will his big numbers translate in the NHL probably not, but could bring some of it :dunno:
    Detroit - Drew MacIntyre has a long way to go, but always adapted well at every level so far
    Edmonton - Roman Tesliuk steady defenceman, good all around game
    Florida - Josh Olson- Taticek being top 15 I'd go with the next best thing
    Los Angeles - Tim Gleason Great potentiel, would have picked Baier if eligible
    Minnesota - Clayton Stoner Nothing exceptionnal, but he shoes flaws in his game
    Montreal - Chris Heino-Lindberg- That guy could end up being a legitimate Number one in the NHL
    Nashville - Simon Gamache- Got great wheels and is all offense, could use a more complete package though
    New Jersey - Tyler Eckford Big and showed some upside potentiel
    New York (I) - Wes O'Neill- Great potentiel, has ALL the tools to make it big
    New York (R) - Bruce Graham Nice blend of size n skill, is still very raw, needs to refine is game
    Ottawa - Mattias Karlsson Another tough rugged D-man
    Philadelphia - R.J. Anderson- Could become a very good PP quarterback
    Phoenix - William Engasser has lots of offensive upsides
    Pittsburgh - Patrick Bartschi - Great Ice vision, good offensive skills, great attitude
    St. Louis - Lee Stempniak- A great potntiel, for being rated so low :dunno:
    San Jose - Nolan Schaefer- Has big guys in front of him, but has the Talent
    Tampa Bay - Albert Vishnyakov- has steal potentiel written all over him
    Toronto - Robert Earl- can he overcome size issue... I think so
    Vancouver - Julien Ellis-Plante- Jason King is still a prospect and not ranked...I don't think so
    Washington - Nolan Yonkman has the size, the Skating, the grit..but dosn't seems to be able to put it all together :dunno:

    Word to the wise folks. Don't tell Patty who you like if your in a keeper league with him. I raved about Klubertanz play last year in Green Bay and he traded up and took him 3 picks before me!! Watching him with the Badgers now makes me even angrier that I opened my mouth.

    He couldn't get Karsums though :)
     
  15. You can't pick Karsums, he is exactly at 15 (although he should be higher....)

    Yeah but does that make him better than guys like Taticek and Olson just because he can hit. Taticek while considered by many as a bust is the best of them all.

    Sorry buddy. Ya told me a good deal in advance about the kid (maybe early winter) and the more n more I read bout him, the more he grew on me...you just gave me too much time heheheh. I knew he wasn't gonna last with your 3rd rounder. Ya can have him for Tuks tho (don't wanna see Stewarts name thrown out :D )

    PS: if its any consolation, I remember feeling kinda bad I moved up right before you to take him...but that feeling subsided when I got an awesome player :yo:

    In order:

    Taticek
    Uchevatov
    Olson
    Bellissimo
    Bagnall
    Lojek
    Jaakola
    Tume

    Taticek is the best

    I'd probably take Olson over Uchevatov as well. Uchevatov is a bit of an unknown qauntity. Uchevatov is a long term project while Olson probably will make the Nhl as 4th possibly 3rd liner in the future.

    because i really loved watching this guy in juniors. if he were to add some more size and develop his skating, i could see him as a good fourth line pest. he's just a player i like, edmonton had a few guys outside of ferguson too, but i liked him the best

    I don't know enough about other teams prospects to pick theirs, but for the Flames, I'd say David Van der Gulik is our best darkhorse.

    He slipped under the radar due to the fact that he was drafted out of the BCJHL as an 18 year old - thus he was a bit behind his counterparts, ie. Chuck Kobasew, who played in the same league and is a very comparible player - but showed tons of flash in a few prospect camps in Calgary and is really making a name for himself in the NCAA.
