Excellent to average 3 to 6 shifts. Below average 6 to 10 shifts. You want to see them coming and going.

Goalies are trickier. The forget abouts are rather easy. Poor - skating, mobility, movement, technique.

The remaining minority is a question of adversity and fall apart moments. Happen to every goalie so it comes down to learning, adapting and changing.
Okay prove it, go to a game or watch it on tv when it starts again and let us know what type of career each 1st year player is going to have.

Even people who do this type of evaluation for a living get it wrong in the sense that you can look at most 1st rounders and throw them in a pot over and over instead of looking where they will rank from where they are picked1-30.

Here are the top players by points from the 06 draft

The drafting is getting a bit better than it used to be but it isn't science in any sense of the word.
