I agree with Edge...
Murray's starting to remind me of Todd Harvey, less the scoring (which is a scary thought considering Todd never amounted to much of an NHL scorer). Murray can play in the NHL, I believe, but I'm thinking more along the lines of a fourth liner at this point, and I think that right now, Hollweg's a better prospect (there you go Melnyk), albeit possibly injury-prone.
Out of Hartford and guys I've seen...Tyutin and Kondratiev will be NHL defensemen. Moore, I believe, can be a third or fourth line center (not your typical fourth liner, but nothing wrong with some speed and skill at center...and he's valuable as a penalty killer).
I think Taylor will be an NHL defenseman, but am not totally sold on Liffiton, who's a bit younger at this point.
Giroux has the tools and size, but needs to find the drive. He'll need to break-out in the AHL prior to getting an NHL shot.
Pock will be an NHLer, but I see him floating around.
Lampman will get his calls, but I just don't see NHL regular just yet.
Balej and Lundmark perplex me to no end and I cannot confidently say anything about either at this point.
I have a good feeling about Montoya, but have never seen him play.
I think we'll have a bit more clarity on Montoya, Korpikoski and others after the WJCs.
