    Interesting takes by pronman. For some background I’ll tell you that he breaks down tiers by:
    Special: One of very best plays at position
    Elite: top 10-15% at position
    High-end: 1st liner/top pair
    Very good: top 6/top 4
    Legit: bottom half lineup

    9 player projected as 1st line or better

    Laf in special tier, Byfield is bubble elite/special
    Groups Stutzle, Raymond, Perfetti into Elite tier

    Zary, Mercer, Jarvis all high-end/very good—> i.e. 1syt line tweeters. The first two there play center. Personally, Zary worries me.

    Brenden Brisson at 14 is interesting. Has him listed as a C in the very good tier (top 6). I’m not super familiar with the player. Pronman has said before that he just lists the players as they’re listed by central scouting, so I’m intruiged as to if he’s an actual C.
    14. Brendan Brisson, C, Chicago-USHL
    Oct. 22, 2001 | 5-foot-11 | 179 pounds
    Skating: 50
    Puck Skills: 60
    Physical Game: 45

    Shot Grade: 60
    Brisson, the son of NHL agent Pat Brisson, was one of the best players in the USHL and had a great World Jr. A Challenge, tying the tournament record for scoring. Brisson is a very skilled player. He has the slick 1-on-1 skill to beat defenders consistently and make plays in small areas. He’s an extremely creative playmaker who can make a lot of plays off the perimeter and make plays with pace. He improvises very well, making high-end plays under pressure. Brisson is a great passer, but also a great goal-scorer, who scored numerous goals off his one-timer. That combination makes him very dangerous on the power play. Brisson has limitations in his size and speed, which is why some scouts still question how his game will translate. He does compete well, attacking the middle third of the ice; and he isn’t a perimeter player, although I wouldn’t call him very physical.
    Ryan Hardy, GM of the Chicago Steel, on Brisson: “He has so many attributes that are attractive. He has skill, he can score, and he can make plays.”

    Mercer is the guy that I like more and more with everything that I see/read about him. Might have to find a new guy though if Pronman likes him too.

    I don't really know amything about Brisson. I do know that guys drafted out the USHL are pretty much impossible to get a read on.

    Brisson is a guy that I think you look at with Pittsburgh’s pick. Like I said, I don’t know much about him, but 59 points in 45 USHL games is impressive. His team was loaded, which is something to keep an eye on, but I think he could have a good season at U mich next year just based on historical comparisons. I like Mercer too, especially in our likely range, I just wonder why his production slowed down when he got traded.

    Maybe this stuff is better put on the main Prospects page? Seems to me you are flooding HFB in order to get hits. I mean, lots of draftniks do, but you are going further than most.

    Yeah totally Bettmans fault for the pandemic. How dare he do his job and try to minimize the loss for the owners while still providing a fair playoff format....

    Watch, Minnesota wins their play-in, gets blown out in the playoffs and drafts in the late teens, early twenties losing out on a talented center again. Meantime, Pittsburgh loses their play-in, gets a top 8 selection. Hockey doesn't start on time, we get Pittsburgh's pick next season in the late 20s and pick another Zach Phillips, because not enough data on the draft selections next year and the guy that did well this year that slid for 'unknown' reasons, yeah there is a reason why he slid.

    can you just imagine IF wild lose to vancouver then hit the jackpot? 1 in 8 shot for christmas to come early. i was also happy to see the projected top 10 did not include lundell , better chance for us to pick 11 or 12. (assuming loss to nuckers)

    Anybody want to give a quick summary to somebody that has paid zero attention to whatever was supposed to happen tonight? What does 'ghost team' mean?
