The funny thing is how much these rankings, ESPECIALLY those in BH99's second tier and projects sections, will change. We could well see a goalie (or someone like Gaulton) up near 11 or 12 by this time next year.
Even in our mid-season rankings, we'll see huge changes. Gilroy may prove to be better than Anisimov, for instance. Chad Johnson can establish himself as a solid AHL starter, while Boyle or Byers will fail to make the Rangers, proving that they aren't NHL material.

McD, Heineken, Nigel Williams, Bourque, Byers, Boyle may all prove a lot to us - either showing that they have real NHL potential or not.

Many of the Hartforders on the list will change rankings also. A role player in his rookie year may become a top-6 forward in the AHL, thus boosting his ranking; or he may stay at the same level or collapse into the ECHL, thus falling off the list.

Our list at mid-season will likely be 25 and not 30 players because I expect a half dozen players on this list to drop off completely very quickly.
