    The only true way to rank prospect pools is by how many guys turn into NHL players

    I got Vegas here. Surprised to see them have such few votes.

    Anaheim/Ottawa should be higher and Detroit way more down

    Janne Kuokkanen - Martin Necas - Julien Gauthier
    Jamieson Rees - Ryan Suzuki - Morgan Geekie
    Patrik Puistola - Jack Drury - Stelio Mattheos

    Jake Bean - Roland McKeown
    Jesper Sellgren - Anttoni Honka

    Alex Nedeljkovic
    Pyotr Kochetkov

    Top-6 could all be legit NHLers with a couple impact players (Necas + Suzuki + Rees). Defense is average overall but Bean and Sellgren have top-4 potential. Two excellent goalies.

    NHL Roster of: Eichel, Dahlin, Thompson, Reinhart & Middlestadt added to their prospects, they're still winners regardless of the Poll ranking.

    I would rank: COL + NYR + EDM +BUF + PHI/MTL.

    So maybe 4th? :help:

    Really? They just stomped the AHL with the youngest team in the league last year

    They don't just have a solid top end, they have what's likely by far the best depth left on the board.

    Yeah, wrong word to use, meant the depth of the top end or whatever. Theres a steep dropoff IMO after Necas. While the VGK have Krebs, Hague, Dorofeyev, Elvenes, Korczak and Morozov, who I'm higher on than most, the Canes have Puistola, Rees, Suzuki, then a steep drop off IMO. So the three don't really compare to me, and you also have a steep dropoff. Theres a lot of quantity, but I wouldn't say its quality.

    Quality and quantity is better on the Canes side. Four 1st round picks (Necas, Suzuki, Bean, Gauthier), eight 2nd round picks (Kuokkanen, Rees, Kochetkov, Nedeljkovic, Drury, Loustarinen, McKeown, Martin), three "swing for the fences" 3rd round picks this year (Puistola, Honka, Fensore), and multiple 3rd/later round picks who look like they have NHL talent (Geekie, Mattheos, and Sellgren).

    I don't agree. I am really not a fan of any of your first rounders aside from Necas, who I'm really high on, I don't put much weight on goaltending prospects and Rees and Drury are the only two I'm high on. Puistola and Fensore are really nice too, but again, nothing on Krebs, Dorofeyev, Korczak, Elvenes and Hague, even if you believe Glass and Necas are equal (I do).

    Not getting the Anaheim love over Ottawa here. The have the slight edge up front, but the Sens blow them out of the water on D and in nets.

    Yeah I'm a little surprised by the lack of Sens love / even Sens hate. Batherson, Brown, Norris, Formenton, Brannstrom, JBD, Thomson, and 4 goalies with #1 potential is easily top 10 worthy.

    Admittedly, they probably only boast two forwards capable of being 1st liners (Batherson/Brown), but the depth on D and G is outstanding.

    Could go either way with Anaheim or Ottawa. I don't think goaltending has much of a factor in these polls unless they have a top rated goalie prospect (someone like a Knight, Demko, Sorokin, etc.)

    My concern with Ottawa is that I don't project any of those guys as high end talent. Brannstrom is my favourite of them all, he seems like a 2/3 guy to me, Norris will be a 2c upside sign 3c downside, Batherson top 6/ top line guy, Brown I'm not so high on (lower than Norris), Formenton who knows, etc etc

    It's a nice pool with lots of guys who even fit into Ottawa's system, good number of NHL talent players but I couldn't justify voting it ahead of any of the ones picked already or Vegas with Glass, NYI with their defencemen, Anaheim with their high end skilled forwards etc.

    A lot of depth in the pool though.

    Because nobody outside Detroit believes Veleno is a Top 6er. Or something.

    Ottawa being undervalued because.. Being Ottawa? People really hate Melnyk that bad? Can't understand why Anaheim is tied right now with Vegas also on the board.

    Tbh, Ill chime in and say that I believe Anaheim does not have better forwards prospects than Detroit.

    Detroit/Ottawa should be behind Vegas but clearly ahead of Anaheim.

    I think Edmonton should be up there due to their very very strong defensive depth for prospects. Forwards lower them down though

    Since were saying the same thing, does this mean you are wrong too?

    Say what you want about Dorion as a GM, but the guy is great in amateur scouting.

    His drafts (2008 + 2009) as director of amateur scouting in Ottawa were pretty great. Beside Jared Cowan, not many mistakes and a lot of good picks (Karlsson, Lehner, Hoffman, Silfverberg, Smith, Boro, Wideman).

    Ottawa drafts generally pretty well. Their pool is deep and well balanced. They deserve that spot IMO.

    I have them a bit behind.

    My concerns about Edmonton is how both of their top D prospects are boom or bust. I see Bouchard and Broberg each either becoming studs or not being able to out it together and becoming busts.

    I have a tough time comparing them to a team like NYI.

    I'd take Dobson over Bouchard, Wilde over Broberg and Aho is pretty comparable to Jone and Bear. Sure Edmonton has the quantity (Samourakov... Spelled wrong sorry) but NYI also has Wahlstrom who, even though I have a hate boner for, edges NYI over them. I think they are close though, I only have 1 or 2 remaining teams ahead of them.
