    Pettersson's season was basically unheard of....so yes, he is not having that type of season, you are correct. Pretty much no 19 year old has ever had that type of season in the SEL.

    Our prospect pool is interesting, there are a lot of guys who I think can make the NHL but aren't top tier prospects, especially on offense. Smith I think can be a top pair D man, but I don't know about a number 1, he is still 18 so its entirely possible. I would prefer we add Byram in the draft because in my eyes he's a bonafide number 1 and having him and Smith be the anchors on the top 2 pairs for years to come would drastically change our D core. Boqvist can be a top 6 player and it's incredibly ignorant to compare a 20 year old's point production to players who have been in mens leagues for years and years. It's middle of the pack due to lack of top end talent but the pick this year may push it near the top 10 based on it having a lot of players who may end up being NHL type talents.

    Not when the statement is made that "he is tearing up the SEL". I mean, that's pretty cut and dry. You either are or you're not. He's not.

    Again, though, I agree that what he is doing in that league at his age is impressive. Definitely showing an NHL upside.

    I think that's a bit more than an "NHL upside" .. I think it's more top 6 forward upside.

    Ty Smith could be top paring D for sure. Maybe not a #1 D that will play heavy minutes in all situations, but he has top paring potential for sure.

    Was gonna say, once I saw the list started with Lappin, it's not going to be pretty :laugh:

    Didn't we just sign Cormier? Can he bump the twelfth spot?

    Our prospects are overrated for the most part

    It has everything to do with our prospect pool... didn't really think I had to explain that since judging a prospect 2 or 3 years after being drafted can lead us to false hope. Do you remember when everyone was high on Urbom, Gélinas, Merrill, etc?

    It's not doom and gloom but I won't start dreaming in technicolor either.

    We were over this the other day. If you believe that the current crop of prospects is similar in value to those of 5-7 years ago, you aren't paying attention.

    Of course a team's fans will always be excited about their prospects. But we have actual legitimate prospects now.

    Comparable for him would be Hampus Lindholm in my opinion.

    I don't but whether you like it or not, they're part of our prospect pool and that's all that's being said here.

    If you want to make a "post Conte" list... be my guess but overall group we have now is average because of the picks made by Conte. Are we doing since the passing of the guard took place, absolutely but it doesn't take away that our overall group isn't all that great.

    Average prospect pool (I.e. middle of the league) is exactly what he said earlier. What exactly are you disagreeing with?

    Not sure how good the writer’s judgement is, but if a prospect is ranked below JQ they’ve got to be really bad, with almost no hope of nhl success.
    That being said, while I don’t think we have a bad prospect pool, it’s not great either. We have a top 2 D in Smith, probably a top 6 F somewhere (whether it ends up being Boqvist or McLeod or Studenic or someone else emerges, I’m uncertain) and a bunch of middle-bottom 6 guys.
    We really need another couple great pieces so the hope is to add one this year via FA, and hit big in this coming draft. I understand that it’s not the most likely outcome, but a potential influx of talent (think Smith, Stone, and Kakko) by next year makes us a very good team.

    I'm saying it's below average and closer to the bottom then the middle.

    HFBoards is, in general, terrible at predicting success of young players. Too many emo-people who think every asset in the pipeline has upside. For the record, of the above, the only one that intrigued me was Gelinas.

    I was one of the ones who was on here asking "who cares?" the day we lost Urbom to Washington

    For the record I hated Gelinas because he was maybe the dumbest hockey player I had ever seen.

    I’m not convinced that Provorov and Chychryn would be significant needle movers this season. Provorov is struggling this year according to PHI fans and it’s not as if Chychryn seems to be doing much to elevate AZ in the standings. Yes they both have wonderful potential but they’d both probably be roughly in he same spots in NJ and we’d be complaining about their foibles.
