Quite a bit different than what I expected to see. Morrow is turning out to be quite the pick from Shero.

Only thing that surprises me much is that Samuelsson finds a way to sneak in at the end. He always finds the last spot in any type of non-HF voted prospect rankings it seems, whether it's THN or the Trib or PG or whoever. No doubt mostly because of name recognition because I don't see him being anything more than a 7th defenseman at the NHL level.

One thing I like about Hockey Prospectus rankings is that they're very grounded in their projections of what they think the player will become, though I guarantee that it makes people rage when they read it. Way, way too often prospects listings make the 7th-best prospect in an average system seem like a lock to be a top-6 wing or top-4 d, so I do like the more realistic approach.
