That's pretty beside the point. This article doesn't seem too bad, but every time I read one I notice a bunch of glaring problems. It always seems like the writers aren't as familiar with the team/its situation as they should be and it never seems like they've actually seen any of the prospects play at all. I think the backlash they get is probably exaggerated, but most of the articles seem pretty much useless to me.
This article is pretty short and unambitious, which probably helps limit the potential for errors. The only thing that really jumped out at me was the claim that Patrick Wey is a puck-moving defenseman, which just isn't true, along with the complete omission of Schilling. Edit: Also left out Flemming.
