I don't think it ridiculous as far as "prospects" go. He was never the "gotta have" prospect, which is usually the way this ranking system goes. Not to mention he is about to graduate from the prospect ranking.

Nitehowl 03-29-2013 01:26 PM

6 of top 10 are from Canadian teams...

BobbyFischer* 03-29-2013 01:33 PM

Meh.. kind of crappy list.

Canadian bias.

Maybe before he got drafted, i'd understand. Since he's been playing he's in the Calder discussion now so why is he still so low on the list?

There are several other prospects that don't seem to make sense as to where they are. Time will tell but at least BGally has shown he's a top prospect right now.

More than kinda. How is a calder candidate get listed at the end?

Woof....its a dog of a list

SnapVirus 03-29-2013 01:39 PM

Its based on potential career-wise.

Galchenuk 'could be' a 80-100pts player if we check that list.
But Gallagher at the end a 40-60pts player.

Defensive defenseman get severely underrated. Tinordi should be in the mix too.

Classic overrating of "skill" and draft position going on.

The tears from Oilers fans are delicious.

Team_Spirit 03-29-2013 01:56 PM

Im sorry but this list is total ****.

ProspectsFanatic 03-29-2013 01:57 PM

Gallagher > Beaulieu.

MooseOllini 03-29-2013 02:01 PM

Gallagher is too short, they missed him :sarcasm:

JayKing 03-29-2013 02:07 PM

Good to see he passed Yakupov.

Frozenice 03-29-2013 02:43 PM

I wonder how Detroit feels about how their over-ripened fruit isn't as highly ranked as they like to tell everybody they are.

ChesterNimitz 03-29-2013 09:39 PM

I watched Galchenyuk skate as a 16 year old in the OHL. He was a dynamic skater and never thought that Montreal would ever be in a position to draft him. He's not yet shown that type of skating after the knee injury and surgery. But that's to be expected. It sometimes takes a full year for a player to recover full use and strength of the joint after surgery. I expect that next year, with additional time for his knee to strengthen and, of course, his being one year older, we will see a very special player.

poetryinmotion 03-29-2013 10:09 PM

Wasn't expecting that, quite an honor. Who says HF is a joke? :sarcasm:

He's almost 21, three years older than a lot of the players on that list. That's at least a partial explanation.

No doubt he's shown that he can be an effective player in the NHL though, 49 is low for what he's shown this year.

Ceiling wise, no.

I think they are going with potential, and while Gallagher is still younger than Tarasenko, and is generally awesome, they are assuming he's already closer to being a finished product than many others on the list.

Polls like this come with a lot of bias from the people compiling it.

Its just like the NCAA Football rankings to determine who will play for the National Championship.

It makes for an interesting read about "opinions" but is not really worth the bandwidth that it consumes when it comes to future reality.

Well, keep in mind these are writers/bloggers and not scouts.

No, it's still a bogus ranking. Gallagher has proven himself in the rookie class this season, which is what that article is promoting. He should be a top 10 , plus I named my new dog Gallagher.
