    Alright guys!

    Since all of us are getting a little antsy stuck at home with no hockey, I thought maybe it's a good idea to get into some real hockey discussion again to take our minds off of the more sobering things happening in the world around us today.

    And with most of the minor/junior leagues suspended and/or cancelled, it's TIME.....

    for the CAPITALS TOP PROSPECTS 2020 Quarantine Update!!

    Going to be voted upon again by the most knowledgeable hockey fan base in history.. YOU!

    Since we're not sure when we'll have hockey again, let's add to the discussion on who you voted for, what is your estimated date of arrival to the big leagues NHL (if at all), and your realistic expectations for that prospect and how they would fit with the Capitals. Or anything else regarding these prospects.

    Again, to be eligible for the poll, player must be 25 years or younger and has played no more than 25 NHL games.

    If there is someone I missed in the poll or you think should be added, please post about it below.

    I'll leave the polls open for 3 days due to the excessive amount of time we have to kill.. I'll see how it goes and may lengthen or shorten the time if necessary.

    I'll post up the winner in the following Top Prospect thread.

    VOTE 2020

    (you can see that I'm very very bored)


    Edit: Switching the poll to 2 days instead of 3

    And AA rounds out the top 3! As @Ridley Simon says, there was no doubt!

    Talk about a steep drop off. #4 is still pretty clear and obvious, but it gets pretty rough quickly after this one.

    I would agree with this pretty fairly narrow top 4. Admittedly I have recently tended to favor the most difficult positions from the forward perspective.

    Sprong, although still a really young guy (23 years old), has played about 100 NHL games though. I'm not sure if you can consider him a prospect. Certainly not by the NHL's definition.

    I think as of now it looks like this, but I think Leason helps form the "group of five" next year, plus whoever else they draft in the first round. He was in a rough spot as an overager jumping right to Hershey out of his draft year and will take a step next year.

    As an aside, is there any reason to be excited about Riley Sutter or Kody Clark? Haven't heard anything overly positive about them two years removed from the draft.

    McMichael

    Alexeyev
    Feverbaby

    Protas

    Leason
    Nardella
    Vanecek

    Pinho

    Everyone else

    I don’t know, I kind of put those 2 and Leason in a similar boat right now. All the same age, CHL guys with good size, play the same position, and struggling for the most part as first year pros, which isn’t unusual for a lot of guys.

    Sure Leason had a breakout year last year while the other 2 kind of flatlined but so much of that is often one of surrounding talent and opportunities.

    Basically I want to see what they all bring next season before I start to consider writing anyone off.

    Wow, another blowout. Quite a jump in the rankings for Mr. Protas. He certainly earned it. The big year one improvement in his skating, despite the fact that he only hit 6’ 6” in the last year, definitely leaves me feeling very hopeful about his ceiling. If his skating continues to improve, then his ceiling will only continue to go up.

    Here’s a new interview with him on Nova Caps:

    This. But it’s Protas in another runaway.

    as was mostly expected.

    #5 will be a little more diverse, but it should be Vanacek if we are being honest with ourselves... then possibly Leason and/or Nardella.

    Then — ahhh. Ummm. Lots of choices.

    Based on a mix of potential and performances this season I’d say the tiers are as follows:

    In no particular order the next tier is definitely Nardella, Malenstyn, Pinho, AJF, Pilon and Vanecek.

    Then Snively, LuJo, Leason, Sutter and Clark.

    A lot of the other guys are relatively unknown. I’d maybe put Riat in the Snively tier based on his numbers.

    I know the Viper has worked on and improved his skating skills this year. How is he currently speed-wise vs Backstrom?

    No big deal. He won't receive votes for quite some time

    Injuries have derailed the progression for both. They could still get on track, but keep expectations in check for now. Injuries are also a pretty frequent reason why prospects end up busting.
