Acting all insulted that the prospect is not ranked high... Big deal... If the player is good he will become a player regardless of how he's ranked.
Just seems so silly to complain
Agreed. The order of the prospects look pretty good, that is what I looked at.
I think there are so many potential gems that got drafted late due to size, injuries or skating ability. Hoffman, Pageau, Petersson could all be star scorers at some point or not pan out at all. It is so early and they have so much potential. Heck you could add Stone and Da Costa to that, plus Butler who is already in the NHL. You could even throw Puempel and Prince in there. I like the strategy of drafting talented guys with some question marks and seeing if they develop. Better than drafting for size. Talent rules. One or two of these guys will likely pan out into a star or semi-star player. Bingo should look good next year and better the year after.
Noessen, Silvferberg and Zibanejad will almost certainly be good NHL players, at very least quality 3rd liners. After that we have a bunch of depth young forwards already on the roster and a great deal of boom or bust potential stars.
I wish we had a couple more defence prospects to go with the forwards, I think Murray will address defence almost exclusively in the off season.
