As you mentioned, people see prospects very differently - I'm just wondering if your opinions are based on video, live viewings, info from others, etc.
I've seen the vast majority of the players in the Sharks system this season (I find it difficult to find college footage--if anyone here has some tips that would be great) and for those I can't, I speak directly with respected people who have. I also have a constant dialogue going on with some friends I knew from school who are more statistically inclined with the game and study that side of the game almost religiously.
I don't want to touch on that one question, but I will say I am unaffiliated with the Sharks organization.
In a perfect world it would be amazing to be able to see all of these guys in person and to be able to converse with them directly, but it's just not feasible. I have seen a number of these guys when they were younger like Gogol (quite possibly my favourite prospect to watch right now). Unfortunately I can't give you that kind of coverage, but what I will give you is real honest analysis with hopefully a few different views that will make you think and discuss.
