The magazine just isn't what it used to be.

The recent top 20 from Hockey's Future that was just released is a far better assessment of our prospects.

Also keep in mind that our prospect pool in THN looks a lot worse than it does on Hockey's Future because of the way they determine what a prospect is and isn't... see Emelin.
Once again, while THN has certainly fallen in recent years, keep in mind that the rankings are done BY A PANEL OF NHL SCOUTS, and that each teams rankings are done by AN ACTUAL MEMBER OF THE ORGANIZATION. Whether it be a scout, gm, assistant gm, etc..

I'm still looking for confirmation that our top 10 list was done by a member of the org again, but it has been the case since the annual issues have been published.

Interested in checking out 50+ years worth of covers from "The Hockey News?" Check out my collection here:
