As far as Downie, I didn't read that last little paragraph about the story of the season. I was finding it ridiculous how everyone was sayin "feel-good" story.

I was under the impression Angelo was Phil 's son....?

But why are we all assuming it's a legacy player like Geoffrion or Messier?
I understand what you mean as far as the whole "front end of the career" thing, but you didn't write the article, and therefore the only way to interpret what a prospect is in the context is based on what they view as a prospect. I'm 99% certain that by prospect they mean a guy who hasn't proven himself in the NHL yet.

Angelo is of no relation to Phil, although that's a common misconception.

And I think you said you get it, but when you link the words "feel good story", " All Ranger fans will take him in", etc, you think of either a person with Ranger ties or a person that overcame something to reach this point.

And Gong, I think this proves he was hardly being sarcastic...
