No one has a crystal ball, things change fast in the NHL and who can say right now than our 22nd best prospect won't end up better than our 8th?

Mark Stone was ranked 24th just 2 years ago... .... ... (I think this point say well enough about this)

What if Robbie Baillargeon comes out of nowhere and end up being a good top-6 forward?

I think those kind of things have been demonstrated ad nauseum in NHL history

By the way, Brian Rafalski wasn't even drafted.

Those rankings are just an internal re-draft, BPA.

Way more interesting IMO than 95% of other threads
The only thing that shows me is that our prospect polls are terrible predictors of future results. Probably because as a collection of fans we're pretty stupid about this stuff. Also randomness.

In other words, if there isn't a discussion about the prospects involved, these are meaningless threads. (But I still vote most years, so I guess I still think they're fun enough.)
