I think all 3 of those guys have fallen behind the others. They are further along, but they have failed to make a significant jump and have established themselves to a higher degree as prospects without an NHL future. Especially Fournier and Nestrasil. These guys are 21yo and playing mostly in the East Coast league. How many 21yo players in the E go on to the NHL? Parkes maybe has a chance, but even 4th-liners in the NHL have to put up more than 8 points in an AHL season. These guys have all pretty much flamed out, imo. Guys like Bodin (and McKee and De Haas) can still make a jump. Odds are they won't and that they'll flame out as well, but there's still a chance for them.
