barnaby...

it all depends on how you rank a prospect. You seem to think that NHL-readiness is very important. Personally, and we may've already beaten this to death, I look more to potential, as in, what can this guy become. Probabilities of becoming something factors into the decision too but I'm ranking a potential #1 goalie who's 19 years old and 2-3 years away from the NHL higher than a guy like Moore, a guy who at 23 or 24 isn't going to improve much more even though he can currently play a fourth line in the NHL, with the upside of the third line at some time.

As for Murray vs. Prucha...personally I didn't vote for Murray, but people see a guy who can be the team's potential captain, a hard-nosed, hard-working player who'll stick up for his teammates and has third line or second line potential.
