Should be out shortly, THN tweeted out the cover: Last year's thread: http://hfboards.mandatory.com/threads/2017-thn-future-watch.2174003/ Just the usual disclaimers: - Please don't post the list for copyright reasons. - Teams themselves provide the individual top 10 lists. So if a particular prospect doesn't show up on your team's top 10 list (or you don't like the order of your team's top 10), it actually wasn't done so by The Hockey News. We've seen in the past where a team might've intentionally left an unsigned prospect off their top 10. - The overall team grade includes NHL players 21 and under who won't be ranked in the top 100. - The polling tends to happen right after the WJC, so the rankings usually seems to be bit slanted towards players who participated. - Depending on the year, THN gets 12+ people to participate. But each respondent turns in his own ranking, so naturally there's usually not much of a consensus especially once you get past the top tier of prospects. It's not like THN got all the participants in a room and they argued where to rank players. It's a very inexact process. The year where Alex Pietrangelo was ranked as the top prospect, he wasn't in half of the respondents' top 5s. The difference between 25 and 45 is probably a lot smaller than what most people perceive. Although I know it won't happen, I'm hoping we can minimize the number of "I can't believe where they have (my team's prospect). He should easily be 20 spots higher" type posts.
