Let's add another goalie: Skapski.

Voted for Bourque because he is a very good player for Hartford. He'd definitely be a fan favorite if he made the NHL.

free0717 07-20-2013 01:19 AM

spelling add skapski

JeffMangum 07-20-2013 01:39 AM

I really like this team's top 20. Voted Nicholls, but I like Graves, seeks like a potential riser.

Net Front Presence 07-20-2013 03:02 AM

Spelling.

Add Skapski.

nyr2k2 07-20-2013 05:14 AM

Nicholls, add Hughes.

Agreed.

Bardof425* 07-20-2013 07:37 AM

I don't think any of the 16 - 20 guys are suspects. They're all better than that.

Nor is Cam Talbot a project, really. He's more of a finished product in terms of his development than most of the guys ahead of him. They're just groupings, though.

Matt Carle Place 07-20-2013 09:12 AM

Nicholls. Add Skapski.

Fitzy 07-20-2013 09:30 AM

Josh Nicholls. I think Graves or Spelling have the potential to do better, but right now I have to go with Nicholls. He's decently sized and put up very respectable numbers in the best Canadian Junior league. Much better numbers than Brandon Dubinsky put up.

Nicholls, add Hughes.

OT, but when was the last time that this "best" league won a Mem Cup??

2008, didactically.

Since I have a little time left this morning to go into detail...

When I say "best," I mean best developmentally speaking. I saw a lot of the Q when the Lewiston team was still around, and I watched enough of the OHL when Grachev was playing with Duchene and Hodgson. In my viewings of the WHL it appears to have the best coaches, best checking lines. The role players aren't going out there and trying to beat entire teams by themselves.

Let me use an example. Ann average NCAA team would stop a CHL team in a playoff series. But advocates of the CHL would claim that the age difference (16-20 for the CHL and 18-24 for the NCAA) will have played a huge difference, so it doesn't actually indicate that the NCAA is a better league developmentally speaking for young players. And they would have a perfectly logical argument.

I won't speak to whether the coaches in the Dub are better than in the rest of the CHL, because, frankly, I don't know.

I see now what you meant, but the word "best" just struck me as odd. Living in Atlantic Canada (and in a city that has a Q-team), I can say that the Q is quite proud of the fact that they have won three Mem Cups in a row and most Q observers would argue with you as to what league in the CHL is the best.

In hindsight, I probably should have included a :sarcasm: in my original post.

kovazub94 07-20-2013 10:59 AM

Nicholls. Add the goalie.

Historically, the further west you go in Canada, the more defensively-responsible it gets (WHL>OHL>QMJHL). That doesn't make those leagues better because offensive creativity goes in the other direction, but when a player scores 80 points in the WHL, it is seen as more impressive than if he scores 80 in the Q.

Cynical TyranT 07-20-2013 12:32 PM

add Skapski, I guess, heh

Machinehead 07-20-2013 12:48 PM

Josh Nicholls, if only because he makes me think of Josh Nicholls from Drake and Josh. And then I chuckle.

Kwayry 07-20-2013 02:30 PM

Bourque is falling pretty hard. I wonder why that is.

He's small and doesn't have a lot of skill for his size. Plus, he has a rather extensive injury history. I don't know why anyone would rank him ahead of any of these guys with real potential.

Sad story there but I don't think he was ever going to find an NHL spot with his size and weight anyway.

Cynical TyranT 07-20-2013 06:28 PM

What happened with McColgan? Or is he gone or nobody likes him? Just wondering... Im not up on prospects like I used to be
