Need Habs Fans insight!

Okay so I'm not sure which section this would go in but I need abit of help.

I am not crazy about the HF way of classifying player's potential.

So I thought I'd try another system to better rate and understand where everyone thinks our Prospects are at.

Basically its simple really, its on a scale of 200

200 being Wayne Gretzsky, Mario Lemieux, Crosby, Ovechkin, etc...

190 being Kovalchuk, Gaborik, Hossa, Shea Weber, Mike Green, etc...

180 being Vinny Lecavalier (the season he scored 100 points), Joe Thornton, Rick Nash, Markov, Sedin twins etc...

170 being Ales Hemsky, Mike Cammalleri, Brad Richards, Duncan Keith etc...

160 Scott Gomez (now), Ryan Suter, Cam Barker, etc..

and so on, you guys are free to put player comparisons, as this is to roughly measure future potential and not current.

Below 100 and odds are the player won't make it to the NHL level. Below 80 and hes pretty much a career Junior, player, or anything pretty much under the AHL.

So in no particular order:

Max Paccioretty
Benoit Pouliot
P.K. Subban
Danny Kristo
Louis Leblanc
Alexander Avtsin
Olivier Fortier
Mikael Johansson
Patrick Johnson
Scott Kishel
Michael Busto
Michael Cichy
Andrew Conboy
Robert Mayer
Niklas Torp
Brock Trotter
Dustin Walsh
James Wyman
Jason Missiaen
Greg Pateryn
Ryan Russell
Petteri Simila
Joe Stejskal
Greg Stewart
Andreas Engqvist
Yannick Weber
Aaron Palushaj
Ben Maxwell
Joonas Nattinen
Ryan White
Mathieu Carle
David Fischer
Tom Pyatt
Cedrick Desjardins
Mac Bennett
Steve Quailer
Gabriel Dumont
David Desharnais
Maxim Trunev
Alexei Yemelin

Edit: I forgot to mention that you are allowed to go like 141-2-3-4-5-6,etc... for example, Kristo 164, the 4 in the 160 is like saying hes gonna be just abit better than X type of player. As for the 100s, 110s, 120s, those are kind of like lower end NHLers. Like I would put Afinogenov at around 130

This is also meant to be fun, and I'm quite excited by some of your answers! I encourage everyone to jump in and its okay to answer only some if you are unfamiliar with a few or most prospects.

So cheers and let the fun begin!
