Not sure that means anything. In April, 2 months after Geoffrion has been traded, Gabriel Bourque was #10 on the list....and ended up playing a very good in the NHL for them. While Latta who is now #4 on the list ended up with less points playing for their farm team than Taylor Beck did who's #8.

Just saying that while I will not believe Geoffrion is bad based solely on what we've seen, just putting some perspective on prospect pool rankings.

And I just checked that on December 2011, Geoffrion was #7. Behind guys like Latta, Smith and Beck. But before a guy like Lindback who might proove he should have been higher. And before a guy like Watson who, for me, doesn't make any sense.
