    Thats interesting... Leclaire still is considered a prospect and Latendresse cannot be in tehe top 10, yet he isnt on the list even though hes considered Montreal's top prospect. But i am aware that he is considered Montreals top prospect, just cause hes "King Latendresse" and hes the "Quebec born Messiah". Also the fact the media is pushing for Gainey to put him on the team AND the HABS lack size up front. But still, anyways I like where Kopitar is, hes going to be very special playing with O'sullivan.

    21. Marc Staal
    22. Matt Carle
    23. Luc Bourdon
    24. Shea Weber

    Honest to God, I would have them in the reverse order.

    I wouldn't be shocked if he was, these are usually contests to see who overrates their own team's prospects the most, and Montreal usually wins.

    Otherwise, they do a very nice job on these lists. I wouldn't be so much concerned with the order necessarily as I would the range and the company they're in.

    This means that Devin Setoguchi is in the top 10! or not in the top 50.

    Both Radulov and Weber seem a little low (I would take Weber over Staal, Boudon and Carle and I would take Radulov before Schremp, Ryan and possibly Wolski) but pretty good list overall.

    So the top 10 will have Malkin at #1, barring some complete mental lapse. From there, in no particular order the rest of the top 10 will likely consist of ...

    Brule
    Getzlaf
    E. Johnson
    J. Johnson
    Lehtonen
    Semin
    Ward
    Backstrom
    ________ ?

    Meaning we won't see at least 2 of:
    -- Latrendesse, the Habs #1 prospect even though #2 Kostitsyn (43rd) and #3 Price (47th) were ranked,
    -- Nokelainen, the Isles #2 prospect even though #3 Okposo (50th) was ranked,
    -- Howard (#1 on the Wings list), Hudler (#3 on the Wings) and Kindl (#4 on the Wings), even though #2 Filppula (49th) and #5 Grigorenko (44th) were ranked

    according to hf pittsburgh made a very nice pick with staal. with kessel and backstrom in front of him allready. i didnt like the pick in the first place anyway, i hoped they would pick kessel. great to see that backstrom is in the the top 10 along with o'sullivan.

    I 100% agree. And thought the EXACT same thing
     
  11. I think you guys meant Mathieu Carle, and Montreal own him, not the Sharks :sarcasm:

    What about O'Sullivan!! He should be in the top ten or at least it looks that way.

    That would be it - I was busy trying to convince one of my girls that she's not potty-trained and she did in fact need a diaper on and couldn't remember him.
     
  15. I think they said Top 25, not Top 5000 :D :sarcasm:
     
  16. I think Toews is pretty underrated, the word 'dominant' is used for Staal, while mostly intangibles are used for Toews, and that he only has solid offensive skills...Toews has alot more than just work ethic, leadership and grit. I think often times people mistake 2 way player for moderate offensive ability..I see no reason why Toews won't be a PPG player and a potential selke candidate. I don't have any big problems with the list.

    I'd probably put Bobby Ryan a bit lower until his skating gets better and improves on his play away from the puck. I have zero doubts that his skill with the puck is NHL quality, great vision, good stickhandler a very nice shot just has to work on his legs.

    ok so it just proves Latendresse is ranked #1 on Habs just cause its most likely he will get a good shot at the team before everyone else, and the fact Kostitsyn has been fading.
     
  19. I thought Kostitsyn had more potential than Brule? :sarcasm:
     
  20. That because Habs, like every other teams (except chicago), have stupid fans. But its also true that habs prospects and player are highly underrated by hockey fans...

    But not false. Every year, theres at least 1 Canadiens prospect thats curiously high on the list. In February, Perezhogin was higher than Michalek, Wolski, Kopitar, Boyes, and Radulov. At that point in the year, Boyes was 4th in rookie scoring, Michalek was playing with Marleau, Radulov led the Q in scoring, Wolski had 6 points in 9 NHL games, and was scoring more than 2 points per game in junior, while Perezhogin had done nothing with Montreal and nothing with Hamilton.

    Last year, Kostsitsyn and Perezhogin were higher than O'Sullivan, Lundqvist, Brule, Ryan, Kopitar, and Ward.

    This isn't a criticism of anyone in particular, these lists in general are pretty good. But, we just have to keep in mind that the Montreal prospects are probably going to be about 10 slots higher than they should be. Maybe they're like the Yankees, in that they do a very good job of hyping up their prospects in the press. Nothing wrong with that.

    Teams with 3:
    Kings (Tukonen-40, Kopitar-14, O'Sullivan)
    Ducks (Perry-30, Ryan-13, Getzlaugh)
    Canes (Ladd-28, Ward, J. Johnson)
    Caps (Semin, Backstrom, Fehr-48)
    Bruins (Rask-26, Toivonen-16, Kessel-15)

    Teams with 0:
    Buffalo
    Calgary
    Dallas
    Philadelphia
    Tampa Bay

    Judging by the ranking of the already known Kings and Ducks players, Getzlaugh will be 3 and O'Sullivan will be 4. :)

    Kostitsyn, reminds me much of a Markus Naslund... all i can tell you is he will find a home somewhere on a teams top 6.

    Is Lehtonen actually still considered a prospect? i dont think so, if he's no on the website i dont think he's legal. We could see Setoguchi in the top 10????
