I have to follow the editor's and managing editor's related outline to some extent but in this article, it is an AWARDS article so there doesn't need to be analysis or a lot of depth. We had a limited number of words and needed to try to get as many different Prospects into the awards.
I personally don't give all the negative issues about the prospects but will point out what needs to be improved as simple as possible. I don't want to be like the Gazette.
Do you think the average reader is going to know about
edge control, plant leg pivots, crossover acceleration moves, reverse C strides or transition to offense footwork? There also positioning issues for break outs, back checking issues, on the boards break-out control or specialty teams positioning and play reading for the shooting lanes
but it's just too much for some articles or the average reader. I could go on and on but I won't.
I will try to answer some of the other questions on the article by other as well, to give more details about the players.
Thank you for at least reading the article!
You have all of this information on the Habs prospects?
Myself and many, many others on this board would love to read your observations. We do appreciate your time on this article but Overlords is right......we aren't reading anything that we didn't already know.
It did seem that you may have tried to force a different player into each award as their were no multiple winners. If Gallagher was the top prospect then it would stand to reason that he would be the best offensive prospect......Beaulieu was a bit of a reach for that award.
Like I said, thanks for taking the time to write the article and I would encourage you to write up a detailed analysis and breakdown of each players technical and physical strengths/flaws.
