Prospects

All about the young players preparing to enter the NHL.

So before reading this, there's a few things I'd like to say just to clear confusion and FAQ's. -There are no goalies in this ranking, I'm not a goalie scout, and I'm not very good at evaluating them! -The MAX number of games played in the NHL to be included is 25. I could have missed out on a few guys but I tried. -This is purely my opinion using my own scouting, sorry if your team's player isn't high enough. This includes 2018 drafted prospects. Thanks for reading; comments, questions and...

My top 31 picks for the 2018 NHL Draft with scouting reports for each player.
Here are the top-100 NHL prospects today. Top-25 by position below Criteria: Each player had to be under-25, selected in an NHL draft (or signed by NHL club) and played less than 1/2 season at NHL level. Positions: Keep in mind that some of the positions change (ie, C to wing, RW to LW). I had to pick one for the positional lists, so don't kill me on that. Methodology: I use a 0-100 scale to rate players. It is largely based on combination of factors, mostly on (a) highest peak...
Let's start discussing the rankings for 2021. IMO Stankoven has all the tools to be the 1st overall pick ; Logan is a very fast skater, strong edges, quick hands, heavy wrist shot, and an extremely hard worker. Stankoven is comparable to Nathan MacKinnon with his amazing puck skills at high speed. Let's dissect this you animals.:popcorn: 1. Logan Stankoven, C (WHL) 2. Aatu Raty, LW (Finland) 3. Matthew Beniers, C (NTDP) 4. Luke Hughes, D (NTDP) 5. Zach L'Heureux, F (QMJHL) 6. Carson...
Regular season has concluded in Russian leagues, so it might make sense to start looking at the prospects and RFAs, who might decide to move to NA this offseason. And by the offseason I mean mostly the time after the 30th of April, as the KHL has changed the rules regarding contract terminations that allowed Gavrikov and Gusev to go overseas early and burn down a year of the ELC. Although I should note that every rule has an exception, as Blackhawks' prospect Ivan Nalimov has already signed...
In my day job we have a tool called a pre-mortem. We discuss what could go wrong before making a significant change to a strategy or process. I am using a similar idea here. Basically, this is a prediction of what a "re-draft" in 2023 might say. The list is of players outside the consensus top 15--because it is hard to define a sleeper that everyone thinks is among the elite. 1. Martin Kaut. He is just now making a few lists as a late first-rounder. Given his size, success in international...
10. Dylan Strome - Arizona, 9. Henrik Borgstrom - Florida, 8. Lias Andersson - New York Rangers, 7. Martin Necas - Carolina, 6. Kirill Kaprizov - Minnesota ...
10. Timothy Liljegren 9. Casey Mittelstadt 8. Eeli Tolvanen 7. Jesse Puljujarvi 6.
1-Rasmus Dahlin, Buffalo, 1st overall in 2018 Rasmus is a defender with franchise level impact, he should fit in right away on the Sabres top pair, may need to be eased in on the PP time and defensively as he is still very thin and will need to fill out before being able to match up with every forward, should have a comparable impact to Auston Matthews in his first year. He will not be on this list for long, essentially already a NHL player. 2-Andrei Svechnikov Carolina, 2nd overall in 2018...
I've decided on making a rankings list rather than a Mock Draft this time :O. This will be where I feel players should be ranked, and yes there will be some crazy choices. I can't say I'm an expert, but... yeah I'm no expert. 1. Rasmus Dahlin D 2. Andrei Svechikov RW 3. Adam Boqvist D 4. Filip Zadina RW 5. Quinn Hughes D 6. Oliver Wahlstrom RW 7. Ty Smith D 8. Joel Farabee LW 9. Jett Woo D 10. Bode Wilde D 11. Evan Bouchard D 12. Akil Thomas C 13. Rasmus Kupari C 14. Noah Dobson D 15. Ryan...
September sees the start of leagues and the start of hockey again! Thankfully I've gotten my list in better order to start the season than the last few years. Defensemen have had their handedness added for convenience. 1. C Jack Hughes 2. RW Kaapo Kakko 3. C Alex Turcotte 4. LW Alex Newhook 5. C Dylan Cozens 6. C Kirby Dach 7. LD Bowen Byram 8. C Trevor Zegras 9. RW Vasili Podkolzin 10. LD Phillip Broberg 11. LW Peyton Krebs 12. C Raphae Lavoie 13. LW Danil Gutik 14. LD Matthew Robertson 15....
I told myself it would be unfair to criticize others in their attempts to make a top 50 NHL prospect list if I did not try to do it myself, so there it is! It is based, like for most people here, on my limited viewings of the players online and my incredible ability to statwatch on the interwebs… Enjoy! 1. Jack Hughes (NJ) 2. Kaapo Kakko (NYR) 3. Cale Makar (COL) 4. Alex Turcotte (LA) 5. Vitali Kravtsov (NYR) 6. Bowen Byram (COL) 7. Quinton Hughes (VAN) 8. Cody Glass (VEG) 9. Erik...

Before commenting, you could say for example; hey why is Pavel Dorofeyev ahead of my favorite prospect from my favorite team? He was drafted in the 3rd round! My 2019 draft prospect rankings are also linked with...
Nowadays we often hear people say they dont want to see their team draft a goalie high in the first round (or even in the first round, period). Because they are so hard to project, it's basically a wasted pick. Many goalies drafted in the first round end up busting hard, while a lot of goalies drafted later end up having NHL success (Rinne, Halak, Lundqvist, etc). I find it weird because the only thing that matters for a goalie is: can he stop the puck? So all the scouts have to do is find...
I've seen quite a few discussions lately about whether or not the Wings should target a defenseman with the 6th OA pick. While it seems like the consensus is that people prefer a defenseman, there seems to be a disconnect whether or not it's crucial that they do so, with some people being perfectly fine with picking a forward. I've long been under the impression that it would be absolutely crucial for them to pick a defenseman with the 6th pick, because I've always thought that top pairing...

My 2nd draft rankings, and my 3rd and last one will be posted at the beginning of June. For this Ranking, I'm going do a Top 62 (2 Rounds) instead of the Top 50 that I did last time.

Grading the first round draft choices of each NHL team.
Let me start off by saying I don’t think this is a good draft like a lot of people seem to think. I think it’s about average but I’m not a huge fan so far. The 2018 draft was stacked and I can’t see how some like this draft better. Another thing, it’s hard to find video on some euro guys so far like always so my bad if I’m missing some worthy guys. This is only from what I’ve seen so far from the guys I’ve watched or seen quite a bit of Jack Hughes Kaapo Kakko Alex Newhook Alex Turcotte...
