Pacioretty is way more of a prospect than Subban is. Or is Patches 21 on your list?
Well, in Mr. Bross' defense, you need a crystal ball to make that statement with 100% certainty, while he doesn't need one to know that Pacioretty has already played 86 NHL games. He is HF staff, after all, and their
"guidelines"/"definitions" of a prospect
are hardly a secret. If the same "crystal ball powers" are extended to him (Bross) he could reply that MaxPac won't become a career minor leaguer, and could be considered something like a graduate "on probation", if that makes everyone feel better.
But we all know what you're saying, and probably agree to an extent. No need to lay traps with 21st on our prospect list stuff. He'd obviously be at least in the top half of anyone's list, if included right now.
