    Along with that Foligno is not a flashy player, but boy you can totally tell they miss him.

    I really hope you are right. But when the agent comes out and says he has no doubt that Columbus would offer him the moon, and that it's not about the money, well it sure seems that it's not about the money. Panarin will most likely be signing with a team in the summer that is less promising and not as good as Columbus, because it's about where he and his partner want to live.

    Korpisalo only played 31 games in 2016, we've seen worse goalies have better stretches. Yeah he might be starting quality next year, I'm not that optimistic.

    Yes, he will. And good for that.

    However, he had best play like an NHL goalie and not an AHLer.

    Since he's been in the NHL, for all goalies who have played 78 or more games (same as Korpisalo) he is at the bottom of GAA and save %. He's 46/51 with a 2.93 GAA and 42/51 with a .907 save percentage.

    Bob is 9th in GAA (2.43) and 5th in save percentage (.919).

    NHL.com - Stats

    Korpisalo's numbers for continued NHL employment are, as you might say, UNSUSTAINABLE:D

    Ok, lets look at Bobrovsky 1st Vezina Trophy.

    38 games. 7 more games. But that means everything to you.

    His 2nd Vezina was behind a team that played better than practically 1 or 2 teams all year. LOOK AT THE DEFENSE HE HAD AND HAS.

    Maybe "playoff Bob" is REAL BOB.

    "Vezina Bob" is the one that rarely shows up.

    We're having the Bob vs Korp discussion in the Prospects thread? That's gotta stop.

    This happens all the time. I watch these clips of CBJ prospects and get so excited for the future. I watched the fancy stick work clips of Milano and got excited. I watched Abramov light up the Q and got excited. I watched the World Junior and heard all the talk about Bemstrom and got excited. I watch Foudy turn on the jets down the wing and get excited, or show some touch and get excited.

    Other than Keegan Kolesar and Dillon Heatherington, Jarmo is not trading these guys away. Sooner or later this has to translate to the NHL doesn't it?

    Vehvilainen with a 23 save shutout today. Should push him to around .940 sv%. He’s continuing to impress me big time. Unpopular opinion but I think he’s our best goalie prospect right now. And yes, that includes Merzlikins.

    We really need to hit a Kucherov or Point type of draft pick, having a 2nd or 3rd round pick come in a few years after getting drafted and being a top 3 forward almost automatically would help the team so much

    Maybe not? Mid-late first round picks and high risk/high reward late round picks have been fleeting from the dawn of time. PLD and Werenski were our only high picks in recent years and they've already delivered. I remember the days of Filatov and Brassard and Voracek and how they were supposed to just somehow save this franchise.

    The difference now is that we have built a good environment for kids to develop in so they don't need to put the team on their shoulders. I'd bet that if you put PLD and Werenski on a CBJ team from the Doug MacLean or early Scott Howson era, they wouldn't be the same players because they would have been anointed as saviors from Day 1. Of course no one around here was sold on Dubois until the end of last year, and Werenski was penciled in on the 3rd pairing before training camp his rookie year. Our expectations have changed. We don't need these guys to come in and carry the team.

    Abramov would have made the team out of camp back in those days. Same for maybe Foudy, Stenlund, Carlsson, and Davidsson. I'll take developing these guys Detroit style over thrusting them into the NHL.

    Here's how I had them rated before the season:

    Here's what I'd do now:

    B+ -- Foudy
    B -- Bemstrom, Davidsson, Gavrikov, Merzlikins, Peeke, Tarasov, Texier, Vehvilainen
    B- -- Abramov, Carlsson, Marchenko, Stenlund
    C+ -- Fix-Wolansky, Robinson
    C -- Karlberg
    C- -- Berni, Bittner, Fortier, Howarth, MacInnis, Meyer, Sherwood, Stucker, Vigneault
    D -- Collins, Kivlenieks, Thome, Vainio
    NP -- Siebenaler, Somerby, Zaar

    I have most guys about the same as preseason. Bemstrom and TFW are the biggest risers; Abramov the biggest disappointment. I almost bumped him down to the C+ level but decided that was too harsh. Still, I don't think I'd have him in my top ten right now and he was somewhere around 4 or 5 for me preseason. Also, while I had hoped he'd prove himself way too good for juniors and move himself up to the A level, I don't think you can call Foudy a disappointment at over a point per game, and he looked better in preseason than any prospect bar Stenlund. I also think I was too low on Tarasov and Vehvilainen (and I wasn't the only one).

    If you asked me to do a numbered list, after putting about ten seconds of thought into it I'd go something like:

    1. Foudy
    2. Gavrikov
    3. Peeke
    4. Texier
    5. Davidsson
    6. Vehvilainen
    7. Tarasov
    8. Bemstrom
    9. Merzlikins
    10. Stenlund
    11. Marchenko
    12. Abramov
    13. Carlsson
    14. Fix-Wolansky
    15. Robinson
    16. Karlberg
    17. Sherwood
    18. Berni
    19. Meyer
    20. Bittner

    I'm curious what keeps Foudy high on your list (and thanks for posting it). I haven't watched him for a second this year, so I have zero opinion - I've just seen some other posts on the prospect board indicating he's been pretty disappointing this season. Maybe they're just stat-watchers?

    The only takeaway I have from this is... you crazy haha. Gavrikov should be an A and #1 on that list!!! The guy has been playing top pairing for russian national team games for years now and he cant beat out a 19yo boom or bust guy?!?!?! I mean Im the opposite and penned him in the lineup the year after he was drafted but still!! Haha.

    Anyways Ill give my own quick top 10. Ill do top 10 skaters though then do a separate goalie list because I cant rank where elvis should be between Gavrikov and say Abramov.

    Skaters
    1. Gavrikov
    2. Peeke
    3. Tex
    4. Foudy
    5. Bemstrom
    6. Davidsson
    7. Marchenko
    8. Stenlund
    9. Abramov
    10. Carlson

    Goalies
    1. Tarasov
    2. Elvis
    3. The Finn aka Vehvilivehvihvee

    I cant spell or pronounce finnish names haha

    He reminds me a lot of Dubois. He doesn't put up the numbers (yet) that fans expect, so they say he isn't as good as he should be based on where he was drafted. I've only seen him play a couple of times, but he is always making something happen. IMO, he is going to be a really good player for us in the next year or two.
