hey, since i have some time to kill before 7:00, i'll chip in a bit.
Carter: 8A. He's been impressive at every level so far and was very good in the minicamp, no reason why that shouldn't continue
Richards: 7.5B. It's odds-on he could be a 2nd line center with 60 point potential, but a drop to a 30-40 point 3rd line guy isn't out of the question by any means.
Niittymaki: 7A. I'll stay with the A because rating 7 is only journeyman No.1 and I'm really bettting that Niitty can achieve that. Maybe I'm a bit optimistic here though, but I like what I see.
Sharp: 7B. I agree with your ranking there, he has that potential, but needs to have about a 20 point year this year. Hopefully more.
Seids: 7B. Close to a 7C IMO, size could be an issue here.
Ben Eager: 6.5A. I really think Eager can become a really good 2nd/3rd line player, and he backed that up with a really impressive performance at the minicamp.
Umberger: 7B. Talent is there for sure and he's put up big numbers, but what kind of effect will a year out of hockey have on him?
Ruzicka: 7B. He did have a heck of a 1st year and it looks like he has the skills, but let's just hope he isn't a 1 hit wonder, another good season in the OHL bumps him to a 7.5A hopefully, but we will see.
Drozdetsky. 6.5B. Put up good numbers in the RSL which is pretty hard to do, especially playing with men, but he hasn't played the NA game yet and who knows if/when he comes over.
Potulny: 5A. Got to include him cause he's one of my favorites, he has scored at all levels and at only a 5 rating, he deserves the A.
