well thats one way of looking at it.
then again, when you factor in weve got grachev at 4- too high given his lack of production in the ahl, mcilrath at 6- see grachev but worse since hes not even the best dman on his mj team, ryan bourque at 8- nice prospect but at best a 4th liner and somewhat redundant with hagelin lurking and prusty establishing himself, chad johnson at 10h- jury still out so 10 is too high given who is below him on list and dale wiese at 13- another 4th liner with little offensive upside and no future with this organization.
take them out and put them where they belong, and all of a sudden guys like fasth and horak are near the top 10 where they belong.
either way, we've got some very nice looking prospects getting close.
im especially stoked about forwards ck, horak, fasth, werek and hagelin. all of these guys can play nhl hockey in the near future. 4 of the 5 skate really well, in fact, the collective skating of this group is very exciting. even werek skates better than hes given credit for.
and both ktek and vtank look to be solid prospects with some grit and physicality to their games. god knows our defense is lacking a stay at home punisher like vtank.
