World-Famous Ninth Semi-Annual Beacon Prospect Poll: #1 NYR Prospect
Another draft is over and now now let's get back to ranking our prospects. We will rank our top-20 kids and the 5 who will remain in the poll, but won't make the top-20 will become Honorable Mentions.

Please write who you want added to the poll, and give a reason for it. This makes the discussion here more lively.


WHO IS A PROSPECT: We can't all have different standards based on what we each want personally. We are on the HF board, so let's follow their rules. The standard for what's a prospect is here: http://www.hockeysfuture.com/whatmakesaprospect

* Please don't write that so-and-so should or should not be a prospect. It's not up to each individual here to decide, it's up to the HF rules. Therefore, since no NHL games were played, all the prospects from the summer are still eligible because no NHL games were played

HOW TO RANK PROSPECTS: Based on their value in a hypothetical trade or waiver draft. This takes into consideration a prospect's ceiling, how close he's to making it, his health, work ethic, the whole deal. Imagine there was a prospect waiver draft and you could keep only one prospect. That guy is our #1 prospect. Then imagine we had one more waiver protection. That guy is our #2 prospect.

CATEGORIES: We'll be ranking the top 20 prospects.

- The top 5 will be "Top Prospects"
- The second 5 will be "Second-Tier"
- The third 5 "Projects"
- The fourth 5 will be "Suspects"
- The remaining 5 prospects who made it into the poll, but were not voted into the top-20 will be listed as "Honorable Mentions," their order being determined by how many votes they got in the last round.

GRADUATED: Carl Hagelin, Mats Zuccarello
TRADED AWAY: Steven Delisle, Blake Parlett
UNSIGNED: Jyri Niemi, Peter Ceresnak, Shane McColgan

ADDITIONS: Michael Kantor, Josh Nicholls, Tommy Hughes, Adam Tambellini, Pavel Buchnevich, Anthony Duclair, Ryan Graves, Mackenzie Skapski.

LW Marek Hrivik and RW Christian Thomas both should be up there, with C Michael St. Croix and C Boo Nieves deserving consideration too. I will say Hrivik because he's the safest of all of these to make the NHL.

Voted for Kreider due to his potential. Hopefully he can put it all together this year.

Joey Bones 06-30-2013 09:12 PM

I chose Lindberg over Kreider because I think Kreider will be on the opening night roster most likely. Add Hrivik.

HatTrick Swayze 06-30-2013 09:12 PM

Kreider add Hrivik

Beacon 06-30-2013 09:13 PM

The vote on who to add will be much closer in this round than who'll be our top prospect.

So, you're that high on Lindberg, eh?

Blueblood9 06-30-2013 10:11 PM

Voted krieder due to the fact that he still holds the most value of the all. I thjnk the names up there are the right no one needs to be added

Crazed Beaver 06-30-2013 10:26 PM

Voted miller,
To me he is absolute lock for third line two way player with some o.

BrooklynRangersFan 06-30-2013 10:54 PM

Very tempted to go with Lindberg, but I want to see him play in North America first.

Kreider, add Nieves.

The same set of names have been repeated annually. It's almost about time we unleash them.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 01:28 AM.
