I am at a bit of a loss to understand all of the John Carter threads, though. His chances of making the NHL are slim at best.
According to what? Some bean counter analysis of where someone was drafted back through the sands of history. That's about as valid as some pro football analyst going over the entire history of say Eagles-Giants over their entire history. They must, if they promote that, believe that the results of a game in 1947 has bearing on the game they're announcing. I would say most on here know of these prospects only by reading and various printed sources. Same here, for the most part, but my assessment of the various blurbs on the draftees this year indicates that by written analysis Carter would compare well with draftees as high as the 2nd round maybe. I think the low draft position would be based upon the lack of good competition the last 2 years which might mean more of a long term development project. I think Carter's talent is up there high, and a big center with talent can get to the top level. I say but for level of competition and experience Jo. Carter is very similar to Je. Carter. I say, with a certain talent level and of course good luck, it is up to the prospect if they make the highest levels.
