6= 3rd line Forward/Top 5 Defenseman/Backup Goalie
5= 4th line Foward/6th/7th Defenseman
4= High-end Minor league Talent(Might get a shot...)
3= Minor League Role Player
2= Low-end Minor League Talent
1= Unlikely to make it out of junior/college
NR= Not Rated
I personally don't put a ton of stock into those rankings though, cause prospects don't fit into those catergorys so nicely. I use it more as a guideline, but overall I'm not concerned on what line they end up on or even where I see them, cause 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th are just numbers and not really reflective of what coaches use per say.
