Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by HF Article, Mar 30, 2011.
Hockey's Future releases their Spring, 2011 Top 50, with this article being prospects 41-50
Nice, when will top 40-31 be out?
good to see gardiner finally get recognition.
Wow Bjugstad and Shore. Very nice for the Panthers.
Haha, Jake Gardiner ahead of McDonagh? Based off of what? McDonagh has been better at every level than Gardiner so far.
5 letters. S F A E L.
damn pretty skimpy on the writing this time around...
There will be full profiles later on, this is just to get the list out.
You should be more upset about the player at #48 than Gardiner.
I loved Gardiner. Sad to see him go and think he will turn into a great player however it seems to me he's on the Tangradi program. Gets no recognition in the Ducks organization then as soon as they are traded they are legitimate sure fire prospects! lol Not saying they aren't but just more so the lack of respect the writers show towards Anaheim's prospects.
McDonagh should be way higher than he is now, anyway. He's been an absolute rock at the NHL level. Something very few of the players on this list will be able to say this year.
Gardiner is just a great player to pick on since they played on the same team. He was outclassed at every level, really, by McDonagh.
He should probably be ahead of most, if not all, of these guys from 41 on back.
The full write-ups will be posted at the Top 50 page as they always are, but not until the full list has been released. A little different this time, but in the end, there will be more information than usual.
Yay, 20% of a list.
You mean the WHL defenseman of the year?
Who's upside is that of a solid top 4 guy.
Something McDonagh already is. In his rookie year.
There is no reason for some of these guys to be ahead of McDonagh.
Very nice. Hopefully he can replace Kaberle on our team in a few seasons.
You are acting like Mcdonagh was a beast in the NCAA.
Gardiner's in the NCAA was a more dominant player than Ryan. There is a reason why the Habs traded him, he made progress, but at times his head coach in the NCAA was saying he was playing quite bad for a 2nd year player and 3rd yar player.
McDonagh is playing a safe game but Gardiner's upside is way better than McDo.
And we all know I don't like the Leafs, but Gardiner's skills are on another level dude. Stop being a homer.
And to everyone complaining, im assuming that these rankings are based on potential. Its hard to argue that McDonagh has more potential than Gardiner, but McDonagh is the much safer pick between the two.
^ Meh I'd still rather have McDonagh than Gardiner just because he's playing in the NHL atm and he's playing well with offensive upside.
Lol I would rather have the guy at #48 (Elliot) than either, I thought he'd be in the top 25....not everyday that a guy puts up those kinds of numbers and can play decent in his own end. Actually, I'd rather have the forward over the dmen in most cases so I'd take Toffoli from that group.
By that argument, Would you have Gomez over Crosby? Because after all he's playing in the NHL right now, and Crosby is still out.
Dont be a homer bro, Mcdonagh had 18 points in 43 games in his third year in NCAA while Gardiner had 41 points in 41 games in his third year.
Nothing against Ryan mcdonagh he is a pretty good prospect but give credit were credit is due (in your case Gardiner)
I rather have Cogliano over Ryan Nugent-Hopkins because he plays in the NHL.
Nice to see it finally go in descending order.
And it screwed me over in this list. I immediately jumped down to the bottom.
shocker that as soon as Gardiner leaves the Ducks he makes this list.
Separate names with a comma.
