    Edmonton and the Islanders are definately the top 2. There are probably 5-8 teams who could make a case for rounding out the top-5.

    Edmonton has top tier guys but poor depth, not top five, probably top ten.

    Islanders, Edmonton, everyone else in various order depending on personal bias.

    Edmonton's pool is somewhat overrated imo. Their top prospects are all very talented, but overall their depth is not as good as some others, certainly not enough to be 1 or 2 imo.

    Hmmm you could be right about them not being top 2. I forgot that Hall, Eberle and MSP have all graduated now so that certainly leaves them a bit light. Having said that i'd still view them as top-5.

    Florida is up there, especially if Markstrom pans out, he's suppose to be the next big thing.

    Boston is top 5 thanks to Toronto and some good draft picks.
     
  10. Toronto is top 5 in terms of pure depth

    2)Edm
    3)Florida
    Tossup between pretty much everyone in the central, Rangers, Leafs and a few others.

    They've got better depth than most defending Champs have but I think they'd be lucky to make the top 10 myself.

    I'd say the Islanders and Sens are looking pretty good. Especially if they both suck again this year. Toronto's got some good depth.

    EDM graduated Hall, Eberle and Paajarvi in the same year so it kind of hurts our rankings. But then again, adding RNH would probably put us at ~5 ish.

    Big fan of Florida's and Ottawa's prospects. A lot of talent up and down.

    Edmonton is nuber 1 if you count players under the age of 21. They would be prospects on most teams but because they have very little older talent they have "prospect" type players in the big leagues.

    In addition to RNH:

    Lander
    Pitlick
    Hamilton
    Klefbom
    Musil
    Marincin
    Teubert
    Petry
    Perhonen
    Roy

    Yeah, "1" prospect. :rolleyes:
     
  20. Bolded are B type prospects at best.

    Not true at all, the depth is great.

    RNH
    Klefbom
    Petry
    Marincin
    Pitlick
    Lander
    Hamilton
    Hartikainen
    Teubert
    Musil
    Martindale
    Bunz
    Roy

    I'm sure that i'm missing a few

    That's a pretty damn nice collection of prospects and this is after the graduation of the "big 3". I don't know where people get this idea about lack of depth, maybe it's lack of knowledge of the Oilers 2nd tier prospects.

    No order, but these teams should be in the mix:

    Ottawa
    Florida
    Edmonton
    NYI
    NYR
    Toronto
    Anaheim

    You would have to add the LA Kings to the mix, they have the deepest or one of the deepest prospect pools in the NHL.

    I think Ottawa, Florida, Edmonton, and NYI are the top 4 in some order, and then the next 6 to round out a top ten is a total mishmash.

    Colorado may be in the mix with the following (not in any particular order):

    Gabriel Landeskog
    Duncan Siemans
    Joey Hishon
    Calvin Pickard
    Stefan Elliott
    Tyson Barrie
    Cameron Gaunce

    Of course, a few of those prospects may in the NHL this year.
