    Martin Marincin at 40, that's huge for a Slovakian kid in his rookie season who spoke ZERO English to start the season and had to get the stuff his coaches told him translated if there was time. :laugh:

    Great kid, very good player. Should be a top-2 guy hopefully if we don't rush him.

    Did what? Draft a highly skilled guy that dropped due to question marks around his durability?

    Pulkkinen isn't in the same category as other famous Detroit gems because everyone knew how good he was leading up to the draft. They rolled the dice and so far it's looking like a great pick.

    The real gem in this block of players is Taylor Beck. That was a heck of a third round pick by the Preds...almost cracked the NHL roster in his rookie year. He's going to be a good one.

    Eh, when it comes to Pulkkinen i'm not sure. He was touted incredibly high only a little while ago and i remember reading pages and pages of the thread saying he might go first overall. I was shocked how low he fell in the draft, and i think Ken Holland was too.

    After seeing Stefan Elliot at 48 I didn't think Marincin was going to make the cut...but I thought Elliot was a 2010 draft pick. It's nice to see Marincin get some recognition.

    Well said. Pulkkinen was ranked in the top 2 with Taylor Hall a year before the draft by some sources.

    I'm aware that this is a late and lame gripe, but what's with the format this year? The club icons were a quick and easy way to scan to your teams prospect, rather than reading most of the article, and each opening line sounds like the call at a race track, "and bursting through on the outside is..."

    BOT I like the position of Beck, although risky, he got rave reviews from Pred camp, he and Blake G beasted in a couple rookie games

    I feel confident speaking to this, as I discussed it with Ken.

    These blocks of ten are articles announcing the list, but there will still be a traditional HF Top 50 set up once all is said and done complete with player profiles and the rest of it once the blocks of ten are all released.

    Does anyone else think Luke Adam should be a little higher. I honestly don't know him at all, but his stats seem great for a rookie in the AHL. Better then our Kadri, IMO. Does he play on a true #1 line? I know the Marlies role 4 lines and split up the offense, even had Voros playing with Kadri for a bit.

    i'm a *little* surprised to see Ryan Ellis outside of even the top 30, given that while an overager, he's now the highest scoring defenseman in OHL history, and his stock seems to have risen considerably since even being drafted, but my surprise is tempered by my pleasure at the recognition of Taylor Beck, who has put up monster seasons in the OHL back to back, and was one of the last cuts at training camp this year.

    Definitely not. If I had to guess, I'd say he lands in the top 20.

    A little surprised Ellis is ranked this low. While I am very questionable of his size and skating he has great offensive and a good hockey IQ.

    I saw they had updated his profile on March 10th but have did really nothing and still have him listed as a left wing... :shakehead

    Not sure about other people but I don't see him as a potential top liner, I think he could become a good 2nd liner. He's got great numbers as a rookie in the AHL though. I'd imagine if Adam had top line talent, he would likely be much higher on these lists.

    The top 30 should be interesting, prospects from canadian teams that should fit in for sure are Kadri, Hodgson, Rundblad and Cowen, along with hopefuls such as Kristo, Leblanc, Lehner, Pitlick. Then the NHLers that may have missed the max games count, Hall, Eberle, MPS

    edit: I stand corrected, Pitlick is lower then Marincin. Cannot make it

    hmm, no Faulk in either the first or second group, but both Dalpe and Boychuk are now gone? Disappointing

    Can one of the writers explain to me how Justin Shultz doesn't make the list but Jake Gardiner does? I don't understand that.

    I'm not sure deHaan deserves it, may have just missed. Hamonic on the other hand....

    Kristo's season certainly doesn't look worthy. Leblanc probably isn't high end enough, although I like his game. Lehner won't get in, his AHL numbers at 19 are impressive though despite being shuttled up and down all year (2.56, 917.% in 20 GP, 3 SO). Pitlick would be interesting but his draft status and being 2010 drafted probably keeps him out.

    Everyone who says that Pulkkinen is Zetterbeg or datsyuk kind of steal is wrong, they were unknown players, but Pulkkinen only dropped out of the top 10 because of injuries. He had lots of bad luck with those injuries, all stacked in a two year span.
