    I noticed the following guys arent on their team's TOP 10

    Can anyone explain why?

    Carolina: Magnus Kahnberg
    St-Louis: Alexei Shkotov, Peter Sejna (maybe too old) :dunno:
    Washignton: Maxime Daigneault, Jared Aulin
    Ranges: Balej (probably too old) :dunno:

    Can somebody explain why these guys didnt make the top 10

    Anybody else know who else was overlooked

    Kahnberg is something like 25, so he may be too old. He's also having a tough season... not scoring-wise, but the assists simply aren't there.

    Balej has had a rough season thus far, but hes still a solid prospect.

    I am pretty ticked off. I went to coles which is our biggest book store and they didn't have it in. Would supervalue or sobeys have it in their magazine rack?

    From what I hear:
    Petr Vrana (WJC star)
    Ahren Nittel (torrid AHL scoring pace)

    Both missed Devils list over Janssen, Foster, Laine, Redlihs and Pihlman

    They did a horrible horrible job on the Devils.

    THN catches alot of flack, some of it rightfully so- but aren't the team prospect lists in their Future Watch issue done by an executive from the team itself? I'm pretty sure that's whats stated in past issues. My understanding has always been that a team executive like the GM or head scout gives their team's top 10 ranking and a league-wide top 50 list which THN then averages out with all of the other league-wide lists and comes up with a consensus top 50. I haven't gotten my copy yet so I can't confirm for this year but I'm almost positive that's how it's been done in the past.

    I just read my copy and I was suprised a few prospects weren't included in their teams top 10s:

    Anaheim - Mark Popovic (he's having a good yr with Cincy)
    Carolina - Brad Fast ( he's having a crappy year yes, but he's still 10 top on the canes isn't he?)
    Los Angeles - Petr Kanko ( has he fallen out of the Kings' top 10 already?)
    NY Islanders - Wes O'Neill (having huge yr w/ Notre Dame - even though they suck)
    Washington - Mike Green ( i know wsh's loaded with good prospects, but take a look at what he's doing in the WHL this year, i think he's going to be a VERY solid 3-4 D man for years to come....he's got a mean streak )

    Anyone agree? Disagree?

    It looks to me like each team is done by their writer. That in itself doesn't lend credibility to the project. The top 50 is done by NHL executives(16 out of 30 replied). There is a very wide range of knowledge there and the familiarity with other team's prospects may not be that succinct.

    I could have sworn that Kahnberg DID make Carolina's list. I remember thinking it was odd because of his age.

    I'm especially puzzled by the exclusion of Shkotov - certainly more worthy than many of the Blues' prospects who made the list.

    I can't figure out why they wouldn't have Mike Green on the Caps top ten or in the overall top 50. Even on HF, on the Caps top prospects, he is listed at #8. I just don't get it. I think he's one of the better defensive prospects. Wes O'neill should definately be on the Isles list. He's is clearly better than two or three of the other prospects listed. I always wonder, who is making up these lists, writers or scouts?

    And 10 of those 14 goals are on the power play.

    THE DEVILS NEED A SCORER ON THE POWER PLAY.

    Nittel is proving himself...well, at least in the AHL he is.

    Vrana was also robbed. What happened to Vrana to warrant a snubbing?

    THN does not have an age limit. A few other prospects listed are 26 and 27 years old.

    Roussin for Florida

    Dany Roussin for Florida?

    Rene Bourque - would he have been eligible for Chicago?

    Beauchemin for Philly?

    Khudobin for Minnesota?

    Daniel Paille - was he on the list? Cant recall

    Ryan Callahan for the Rangers?

    These guys have all had a great deal of success this year - I would think that all of them are in their respective clubs top 10 prospects.

    also...Tim Brent...

    instead they picked Dustin Penner who is a long term project and Curtis Glencross who had a great pacific division rookie tournament but is having a difficult AHL rookie season.
