Hockey's Future top 100
 
http://www.foxsports.com/content/view?contentId=1790038

Habs prospects:
16) Andrei Kastsitsyn
26) Mike Komisarek
33) Marcel Hossa
36) Ron Hainsey
63) Alexander Perezhogin
68) Chris Higgins

While having six out of the top 70 is pretty good, these rankings still look way off to me. I've always though Perezhogin and Higgins are better prospects than Hossa and Hainsey. I would also flip Komi and Kastsi.

It's good but I was thinking that Komi would be higher than 26.
I was thinking top 20

Anyway 6 in the top 70 is very good :yo:

I guess the person that did this list likes Hossa. It's just one person or persons (I think it was one person) opinion. For me it's hard to see Hossa so high, and Higgins/Perezhogin so low. But all 6 are very good prospects, no matter where they are ranked.

Agreed... just give them time... even though we're restless.

I thought the list compiled by a few quality HF posters a few months back was more accurate.

Komisarek
Kastsitsyn
Higgins
Perezhogin
Hossa
Hainsey



is more realistic IMO.

The one thing I can't believe is them ranking Carlo Coliacovo ahead of Komo, I know they are both good but I consider Komo a bit ahead in his development now and to have more potential.

For me it's very hard to say a certain guy should be over another. I have thought of something kind of different, but not sure about it. I'd like to see prospects rated on levels, or in groups. This may not make sense, but if you look at the Habs, they have 40 prospects right now. Actually I've been told by HF that Ryder, Hainsey and Hossa have to come off the list and be moved to graduated. But to me we have 40 prospects. To rank them all is not easy. I had the idea of grouping the prospects by overall skill. Something like this,

Group 1- Komisarek, Kastsitsyn, Hainsey, Perezhogin, Higgins, Hossa

Group 2- Plekanec, Urquhart, Ryder, Balej, Milroy, Korneev, Beauchemin, Korpikari, Archer, Locke, Lambert, Stewart

Group 3- Ferland, Eneqvist, Lapierre, Puurula, Halak, O'Byrne, Buturlin, Damphousse, Michaud, Shasby, Flood, Linhart

Group 4- Lindberg, Glenn, Deveaux, Larrivee, Thinel, Selig, Marois, Bonneau

With Group 1 being top notch talent. The success of these guys will be a major part of the Habs future success. The skill level of them put them at the cream of the crop.

Group 2 would be the slightly lesser skilled at this point in time, but still highly skilled with a good chance to see NHL time at some point if they continue to progress.

Group 3 would be more of the average skilled or players that have something holding them back still. Skilled with holes in their game I guess you culd say.

Group 4 would be the lower skilled players that are of the longshot varity. Need a lot of work to reach the next level.

The groups were just thrown together quickly, but you get the idea. Of course a few guys could be moved around, it's just an idea.

Just to make you wonder what all the hype/pissedoffness of all these prospect rankings......go ever to cbs.sportsline.com and they'll show komisarek as being number 2.

I guess if counting prospects counts for anything, there might be something in those rankings, but it will all depend upon the delivery ... tell me this, why are Komi and Hainsey not playing? Kats I can understand ... he's not over here, but our two most promising D-men ... let's work them into the system now, not let them ride the pine or toil in the A.

Just my uneducated two-bits! :moon:
