Michoulicious's top 50 NHL drafted prospects (July 2019)

  1. Michoulicious
    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)

    32. Drake Batherson (OTT)
    33. Adam Fox (NYR)
    34. K’Andre Miller (NYR)
    35. Victor Soderstrom (ARI)
    36. Jordan Kyrou (STL)
    37. Grigori Denisenko (FLA)
    38. Sam Steel (ANA)
    39. Moritz Seider (DET)
    40. Arthur Kaliyev (LA)
    41. Spencer Knight (FLA)
    42. Troy Terry (ANA)
    43. Eeli Tolvanen (NSH)
    44. Ryan Poeling (MTL)
    45. Joe Veleno (DET)
    46. Alexander Alexeyev (WSH)
    47. Maxime Comtois (ANA)
    48. Joel Farabee (PHI)
    49. Jason Robertson (DAL)
    50. Jake Bean (CAR)

    Honorable mentions (in no particular order) : Josh Norris (OTT), Henri Jokiharju (BUF), Josh Brook (MTL), Owen Tippett (FLA), Cal Foote (TB), Alexander Romanov (MTL), Rasmus Kupari (LA), Rasmus Sandin (TOR).

    I would also have placed Vilardi and Timmins for sure in the top 50 for talent alone, but injuries are too much of a concern in their cases.

    First thing that strikes me after doing the exercise is how much I seem to like Philadelphia and Anaheim prospect pools (4 players in the top 50, only behing the NYR (5), which have the top pool by far IMO). It is helped by the fact a lot of their prospects have not graduated, but still. I always liked the way they drafted, especially in the mid-late first round. Gotta trust that amateur scouting staff, they know their stuff!

    Other notables: COL (3, 2 of those in the top 10) LA (3), DET (3), MTL (3), FLA (3), OTT (3).

    Feel free to tell me it sucks with all the hate I know your capable of, I welcome all comments!

    Edit: I did put Frost twice, so I removed one and put Bean at #50.
