I just kinda thought he wouldn't really just count as a prospect at this point. Or if he does, I think he's already exhibited more potential than, say, Nodl.
I disagree on the shot at Nodl. I think Nodl has demonstrated he has more value than Bartulis. Nodl could hold his own fairly well against playoff competition. Bartulis was torn to shreds.
All in all, I'm not very high on Bartulis' upside. I don't think it exists, but if I had dropped him lower, which I originally planned to do, there would be an absolute uproar from the Flyers forum.
That said, I take a lot of stock in others' opinions around here when it comes to prospects. Not as much as my own in the end, but I do pay attention.
Another thing you have to realize is that Bartulis will NOT play on this team. He's the 8th best defenseman on the roster right now.
On the other hand, I'm fairly confident that Nodl is the first call-up among forwards if all things remain equal, as in if he does not make the team outright.
