Risers

Beaulieu - came into the pro game still coasting and got a kick in the pants. kudos to the player development staff for getting him to actually try during a game, he's got talent and if he combines it with effort will be a good one.

Kristo-could have helped the 'Dogs this year but looks a man with a mission as a senior. dominates on the boards and a scary good combo of speed and quick hands. such a cool finisher as well.

MacMillan-since he's played top line with Kristo the two have been on fire. great vision and soft hands.

Ellis-gaining in confidence and starting to play with that Cap'n Morgan swagger again. Paired with Beaulieu and looking great recently.

Gallagher-kid is made of some kind of rubber or something, he gets clattered and battered every shift but is consistently the 'dogs top goal threat every game.

Falling

Leblanc-clearly he is still playing hurt but why is the coaching staff so determined to turn him into a checking line winger? Let him be the best he can be.

Thrower- turning it around now but early signs were not good.

Holland-made a bright start but his hands have gone cold and he is lacking confidence. rotating linemates doesn't help.

Archambault-is this the best he can do when playing for a contract?
well I did just get an offer from a rival company for a big pay increase but I don't think I want to move to New York. If I did take the job I don't think I'd have much free time to do this, my current job is really easy so I can do a lot of hockey stuff at work from time to time.

Agree on the risers, I'd add Hudon for sure and Nattinen has been looking better of late as well. I wouldn't have Thrower as falling, he's looked sharp in his return from injury. I don't know if I would consider Archambault as falling either, as he seems to be playing his best hockey but the question is will it be enough to land a contract, which I assume it will be although that will depend on how the roster shakes out between now and June 1st.

Gallagher
Thrower
MacMillan
Bournival
Leblanc
Bozon
Holland
Naatinen
Vail

Very good. I don't know if I would drop Leblanc that low, I'd have Dietz a little higher since he can do a lot of things well. If Kristo were more consistent I'd have him at 3 like you do. But I gota admit this is one of the best rankings i've seen for our current group of prospects so nicely done!
