Men's league vs. Jr. league
Go-to player on WJC team vs. Not on WJC team (though you could argue that team politics got in the way)

It's clear Ottawa 67's bias.
Actuall I beg to differ. Perhaps I overrate Princes ability to make the transition to pro hockey, but it is not related to a 67 bias.

What I hear about Petersson is that he lacks a level of commitment needed to make it happen. This raises his risk factor. He has the athleticism to be a prductive NHLer, but he needs to raise his 'want it' factor.

At this time, I think Prince has a higher 'want it' factor, more likley due to the fact that I have not heard anythign against him in that respect. I suspect that he does not have the same level of athleticism as Petersson though.

As for the above poster not liking my percentages..... you have a butt, pull out your own numbers and let us see how you see the players potential. We are all just making our own evaluations of course.
