Do I think he is good enough? Of course, and so does everyone else. But people have been wrong before and will be again. He hasn't played in enough games to have graduated to the rank of NHL regular. So, he's a prospect

That's how I see it anyway.

Edit: You think Alzner should still be considered a prospect but Varly shouldn't? I find this peculiar. If Alzner is still a prospect then surely Varly is as well.
Alzner isn't a lock for the team...Varly is. One was here for the whole playoff run, one wasn't. Rookie status or not, a guy who is the incumbant starter isn't a prospect, he's a graduated NHL starter.
