Aside from Toews and Price, the whole top 10 is not even close, i mean Johnson at 2, Turris at 4, Ryan way to low at 10.
Not close... Giroux at 18, etc. etc. etc.
I think the best recent example is David Rundblad. Not that he can't turn into a good player, but he had one really great year, won some awards and hockeysfuture proclaimed him the best prospect in the World, he got all the treatment really that Dougie Hamilton is getting now. If you think Dougie Hamilton is the best defensive prospect in the World because you've actually watched him play and see a lot of great things in his game, fine. But when you go 'ZOMG PROSPECT OF THE YEAR' or bring up arbitrary rankings, it hurts your credibility. David Rundblad went from a future hockey god to #33 in hockey's future rankings, the rankings are very much just indicative of who had the best recent season, which is not the best way to judge prospects (especially when one is a year younger and was injured for most of the season).
