The CAT line. Coleman Anderson Talvitie. Print the T-shirt’s.
Did Talvitie get the hatty?
Ty Smith has 4 assists through 2 periods
44 points in 30 games..i would have been happy with those numbers from McLeod as an 18 year old.
Also, looking at the stats Smith is tied for the team lead in points. The person he's tied with has 8 more games played.
I presume the guy he's tied with is a forward?
Correct indeed, I think the next highest scoring defensemen on his team has like 24 points.
I had no idea Walsh was that highly regarded
I don't know if he's really highly regarded league wide, but he does put up a lot of points which is what that chart is basically showing. It'll be interesting to see what Shero does with this defense because between our current group and our prospects we have a lot offensive defensemen.
I thought Jeremy Davies was pretty highly rated at this point too. I guess not enough to get himself into the top 30.
Walsh is definitely fairly highly touted
go back to the deadline from last year and Shero said that teams were asking for some of his prospects that he wasnt going to give up. I think we know who hes referring to.
Looking forward to adding Smith and Walsh. Shero will have to add support around them but this is very encouraging. Another A+ for Castron.
That list is an rating based on that person's NHL-equivalency metric, not really an actual rating of prospects. Though it'd be interesting to see how they get those numbers across the different NCAA divisions. Davies has 16 points in 16 games, whereas Fabbro has 13 in 16 games. I'm not well-versed in the NCAA so I don't have much insight to offer there.
Yeah, I think people around the league value him but I think the chart may be a misrepresentation of that. Not saying that's what the chart is displaying, just that it may be confusing without context.
It's funny how some here complain about our blue liners here and how they can't play defense, but also hate the idea of defensive defensemen like Mueller or Santini, and want more offensive guys. I mean, it would be great to have players that can do both, but those are the elite players that are very hard to come by.
Age is a huge factor in equivalency numbers.
Davies is 22
Fabbro is 20
I wouldn't be surprised if Davies is in the Devils lineup last game of the season
he's old enough. he'll be playing pro hockey next year. he has nothing left to prove IMO
...unless he wants to go 4 years....
32. If we were to make a rough sketch of the Devils’ current prospect rankings, what would it look like?

I think McLeod should be higher and Blackwood a little lower.
Corey Pronman's thougts on Ty Smith (from the comment section):
"he was typical Ty. Ice in his veins puck moving. A little too cute at times but was one of Canada's best defensemen."

This is the first time I can remember where nearly everyone has a consensus top 10 prospects.
