  1. Since pitt has two star caliber forward prospects I wanted to see what team(s) had the best forward prospects after them.

    Colorado has a good crop: Svatos, Wolski, Parshin, Stoa, Stastny, Fritsche, Durrand and Hensick. However none were really considered blue-chip prior to this season.

    I suppose Edm isn't too bad with, Schremp, Cogliano, Pouliot, Jacques, Trukhno, Goulet, and maybe even Mihknov, and Umicevic all having top 6 potential. And don't laugh, both Mihknov and Umicevic have looked dominant at times this year. And I think guys like Schremp and Cogliano have all-star potential.

    Not as good as the Pens by a long shot, but still not too bad depth, imho. Alongside guys like Stoll, Horcoff, Torres, and Hemsky I think the Oilers have a bright future. :) Finally it looks like Edmonton is starting to draft a bit better!! Yay!

    Ya LA should be #1 but ok.....
    Brown, Cammalleri, Tambellini, Kopitar, Tukonen, Pushkarev, Boyle, Lehoux, Kanko, Roussin, Hogenboom
    Pittsburgh may have the best 2 foward prospects but overal foward prospects we should be #1

    thought he was in pheonix?






    i'd agree on LA though, they have a great group. Other might challenge, but i think LA will win in the end.

  15. yes, but if you want to throw him out of the prospect category then I guess Pittsburgh could be included.

    Washington with Ovechkin, Semin, Fehr isnt too shabby!
     


  19. I am not impressed with Cammalleri, at all, personally...


    But the Kings have some excellent prospects on their hands. However, Brown will not be considered a "prospect" for many more games...

    Colorado is doing well, but I would have to agree with a previous poster and say LA's got it.

    With Cammy, Tukonen, Brown, Kopitar, and Tambellini, I'd be extremely surprised if any of them were to become less than a top-six. Tambellini is looking more and more like a 1st liner these days too, and Kopitar and Tukonen do have the potential to hack it.

    Following them, I'd certainly take Minny (O'Sullivan, Pouliot, and Koivu), Anaheim (Ryan, Getzlaf, and Perry), Buffalo (Zagrapan, Vanek, Roy, Stafford), New Jersey (Parise, Zajac, Bergfors, Vrana), Philly (Carter, Richards, Umberger, Potulny), Pittsburgh (Crosby and Malkin but empty afterwards) and Washington (Ovechkin, Fehr, Semin).

    The Habs main strength in their farm system is their forwards. Perezhogin, Higgins and Plekanec are all playing well in the NHL as rookies but Higgins is having problems producing although his all round game is fun to watch, it remains to be seen just how good of an NHLer he will be if he can't produce at a better clip. Perezhogin has a lot of skills but is just coming off a viral infection and has been impressive at times. Plekanec is usually never talked about due to the other Hab prospects getting all the hype, since he was a 3rd rounder, but he's a very good hockey player imo, not great in any area but works hard, good speed, decent offensive skills, faceoff abilities and has some grit to his game.

    After the 3 NHLers, Habs have Latendresse, Kostitsyn, Chipchura, Grabovsky, Locke(leads Hamilton in scoring), with some lesser known offensive guys like Aubin, D'Agostini, Siarhei Kostitsyn (having a great rookie year with London) Juraj Mikus and our skilled offensive prospects but long shots in Michael Lambert, Cory Urquhart, Duncan Milroy. There's also Lapierre and J T Wyman but it's hard to say what kind of offense they will bring in the future.

    With Perezhogin, Higgins, Plekanec, Latendresse, Kostitsyn, Grabovsky (off to a slow start in the RSL) and Locke the Habs know they have some very interesting offensive prospects. Plus character guys like Chipchura, Lapierre, Ferland and the impressive play of their most recent draft picks, Mikus, Aubin, D'Agostini and Siarhei Kostitsyn, it will be interesting to see who pans out and who doesn't.

    ???

    At center alone, after Crosby and Malkin Christensen is already making a name for himself. Salmonsson is considered to have worlds of potential, Stone we all know what he did last year.

    You may argue that some teams are more stocked than others, argue with HF rankings (and I quote, 'Strengths: 1 Goaltending quality 2 Excellent depth at forward), reasonable minds can differ. But to say the Pens cupboard is bare @ forward is patently ridiculous.

    These are HF's rankings of our center position alone:
    1. Sidney Crosby 10.0C
    2. Evgeni Malkin 9.0C
    3. Maxime Talbot 6.5A
    4. Johannes Salmonsson 7.5C
    5. Ben Eaves 6.5C
    6. Erik Christensen 6.5C
    7. Ryan Stone 6.5C

  25. I don't care about the rest of Pittsburgh's prospects...Crosby and Malkin together make a bigger impact than the top 5 Los Angeles prospects combined, which to me suggests they are the top.
