For the record, I'm of the mindset that organizational rankings should be based strictly on potential.
Aboslutely, it happens all the time. No two players develop the same, ever.

This is a Top Prospects poll and I agree with you, it has to be based on what players are the most valuable to our organization right now. If Chevy was flipping Machacek the asking price would be a 6th round pick. If he was flipping Schifele he'd have a lineup of GMs offering a 1st rounder.

If we're voting for guys most likely to get 200 career NHL games in, call it something different. It's not a Top Prospects poll.
