I figure some of you might find this interesting. Just to see how our prospects were ranked at that time by scouts. Sorry if it's a long post.. I'll change the font so the post won't be so damn big.

Remember that with these FW issues, as long as you're not considered an NHL regular at the time of printing, you're considered a prospect for these lists. Age doesn't matter.

The nonstop steady improvement from the time Timmins took over is actually mind boggling, not to mention the graduates that he already has.

I don't think anyone compares, he's a fitness freak as well. I think he's just one of those guys that has an extra level of commitment that many others don't possess. Signing him to an extension was one of Bergevin's best moves so far. It gives me confidence in Bergevin, some Gm's like to put their own guys in place, but he seen the same things that all of us who follow the habs so closely could see, I'm thankful to have him.
