I voted for Mark Alt based on age, pedigree, size, and athletic ability. I've only seen him play one game in college, so who the hell knows.

You added Michael Parks over Matt Konan? Blah. :(

LegionOfDoom91 07-31-2013 12:21 AM

It's going to be a crapshoot from here on out.

dats81 07-31-2013 01:36 AM

I picked Akeson for being the most stable offensive force on a crappy Phantoms team year in and year out. Just to give him some credit and not necessarily because I seem him making the big club or anything.

Noebels already demonstrated that he can make big strides in a short period of time and if he progresses at that pace he may very well be considered as a callup as early as this season.

Mark Alt could be a hidden gem. He has all the tools and just needs to add the last grain of effort and dedication to make it. I could see him turning into the most improved Phantoms player this year.

Amongst those three choices it's bsically a toss up in my eyes.

Why are Konan and Raffl not even on the list???

ilovetheflyers8 07-31-2013 07:25 AM

I chose Noebels over Akeson. I know little about both but I read in an old article before voting that Noebels was going to focus on rounding out his game this year. If he did that, which I think he did, and he continues to do so then I think he has a better shot, probably as a second-third liner than Akeson in the top 2 lines. My next choices are Akeson and Lauridsen.

sa cyred 07-31-2013 09:36 AM

Went Noebels. Watched him play a few times last season and even as the youngest player on the Phantoms I thought he showed not only great progress but great ability all over the ice. Scored goals, played defense and used his body. His consistency went way up also. I do think he has a chance at an NHL career.

Ironmanrulez 07-31-2013 09:41 AM

picked noebels, because of his working abilities. He can be a very productive 3rd or 4th line grinder with a bit of scoring upside.

Akeson is small and very skilled. He can be a Read light, but iŽam not sure if he can overlive his small size!

Overall i really wish another german to rock the nhl and especially the flyers :D so iŽam biased ;D

Rock me Noebels :yo:

jd2210 07-31-2013 11:18 AM

Akeson. Add Konan

dingbathero 07-31-2013 11:37 AM

AKeson, if he made it as a reg. he should wear number 47 ;)

sobrien 07-31-2013 03:06 PM

Went Noebels over Akeson, but it was close. Noebels already has an NHL level shot, and is responsible defensively. As someone mentioned, I can see him cracking the NHL as a solid 3rd-4th liner with some sneaky offense. Think Nodl with a few more points.

kammy 07-31-2013 03:10 PM

Mark Alt...

is without a doubt a future NHLer.
should have been ranked several slots higher IMO

GKJ 07-31-2013 03:17 PM

Not sure if even the Flyers think Parks is a prospect.

If that is true, it's a great move by Homer. They got him for Luke Pither who is now in Finland.

It's not. How someone could make that statement is beyond me. He's extremely raw who showed promise late last season in the few games he played in the AHL. I mean he's not old but he's gonna be 22 and just starting his pro career with lots to work on.

Kevin Danko 07-31-2013 06:31 PM

Akeson I dont get why he's this low. I voted for him twice already in previous prospect threads

hockeyfreak7 07-31-2013 06:39 PM

Still don't know why Raffl's not included.

Close for me between Alt, Noebels, and Leier. I'll go with Noebels for now, but I'm interested to see how both he and Alt do with a full year of time with the Phantoms.

Cuiff 07-31-2013 06:40 PM

The Dane...only because I have been pulling for him since he was drafted...no other logic used or considered

Konan will be added next. Raffl is pretty old to be a prospect at 24, but then again Flanagan is older than he is. They've had very different careers paths. I guess I never really saw Raffl as a prospect.

As can be said about just about every single NHL defenseman. 22 is fine for a guy to be entering pro hockey and just about all 22 year old defensmen have A LOT they can work on.

I think Alt has a better shot of sticking in the NHL than Lauridsen based on overall game.

I really see Noebels playing a decent amount of games with the Flyers at some point this upcoming year. I really have nothing to back it but its just a hunch.

CHL kids are starting at 20 or younger (if they make the NHL). 22 is not old, it's typical of a college guy I guess.

Btw I agree about Alt as compared to Lauridsen.

Yeah but some of those CHL players spend a year or two in the AHL after that.

I believe Carolina was trying to get Alt to sign after his sophomore year but he didn't want to sign with them hence why they traded him to us for nothing basically.

I can see that. There will be injuries and you can be sure Akeson and McGinn will get a handful of games, but there are going to be other call ups. Noebels, Straka, and Raffl will get NHL time at some point I think.

hockeyfreak7 07-31-2013 07:59 PM

And I will second the sentiments about Alt above. He will be a more effective players than Lauridsen, imo. I'd suspect he will be a call up at some point this year as well.

What am I missing? I was saying that the CHL d-men turn pro at 20 or younger. 20 years old if they are going to the NHL or AHL and younger if they make an NHL team out of juniors which isn't very common. I was pointing out that most d-men turn pro before 22. Keep in mind I wasn't arguing that it's old for a d-men just not exactly young to be turning pro.
