not great, but not so far fetched either...

Leblanc's been injured
Beaulieu, as good as he looked in camp, wasn't the top dman on his junior team last year
Gallagher surprised everyone by his camp performance, but it's still just one camp
Bournival's a nice player but not legitimately a better prospect than any of the guys picked in the top 50
Tinordi had a very marginal season last year for a 1st rounder, no surprise that he didn't make the list

bottom line is that all 5 of those guys have as good, if not better long-term NHL potential than many of the guys on the list, but in terms of pure top-end potential, legitimately not greater than the 50 guys picked there.

lucky for us, NHL wins aren't given out on the basis of how many prospects crack that list
