    What a terrible list. In what world is Big Mac not a top 50 prospect in the league?

    I found it strange too. Even internally he ranks other people ahead of him and I'm surprised by that.

    He's an idiot. Couldn't even get McCarron's stats right.

    Ellis will be 24 soon. He's not a prospect anymore. He might become a late bloomer in the next seasons but he's not a prospect anymore.

    Actually, not many people consider him to have potential to be a 1st liner. 2nd liner would be a huge success for him, 3rd liner is probably where he projects in the NHL.

    THAT SAID, if/when he gets there he will definitely fill a huge void on our roster and will be super important to our success.

    Ellis as opposed to Hudon is very puzzling to me.

    That isn't to suggest that people wouldn't value him as a top prospect; a lot of people project him as a 40pt second/third line tweener than can be inserted throughout the line up. With his size and defensive skillset that isn't anything insignificant.

    Lehkonen
    Juulsen
    Ellis
    McCarron
    Scherbak

    Lehkonen is most likely to make the Habs because he's the smallest. ;)

    Little bit of hate towards the Devils. No Zacha or Blackwood is absolutely insane. might be a little bit of a stretch to say Santini
    Also, where is Nick Ritchie

    Ellis as in Morgan Ellis? Isn't he a bust at this point?

    Ellis shouldn't be anywhere near that list. Its clear Button knows very little about these prospects.

    I'd say he's still a prospect, if I were ranking them he'd be on my list likely in the top 15.

    And I thought Pronman's list was crazy, holy cow that's nutty. No Hudon in the top 5? McCarron has slowed down from his hot start but still not sure why he's not higher. Reway and Lekhonen imo should be close to each other imo, as one is more skilled and the other's game is more suited for the NHL.

    About 14 months ago. But some players refuse to stay busted.

    Link to Pronman's list?

    Apparently all I find is a member only link.

    All I can think of is that he realizes that Lefebvre does not know how to develop forwards.

    I stopped perusing the list after William Nylander. :nod:

    Rantanen is having a more impressive season than Nylander and is younger but he's 17 spots lower lol.

    True. It's called Toronto Sports Network for a reason.

    Is Button drunk? McCarron is easily our best prospect.

    Button is a buffoon.

    I'd take any list he makes with a grain of salt. He's not any more knowledgable than the average HF poster, IMO.

    A few months ago, this forum gave a 75% vote to Nikita Scherbak.

    Why ? He's an incredible prospect, I wish we had him... as much as TSN is Maple Leafs biased, not reconizing how great Nylander is... looks a lot like Habs bias...

    I think it's because he's ranked first. (I personally have no idea about all these prospects except for what some guys on HF say).
