17. Ramage - You hear almost nothing about this guy. Wouldn't be surprised if he went the way of Joey Leach (as in, the Flames don't sign him). He doesn't seem to have much upside, and that's the reason the Flames cut Leach loose.
18. DeBlouw - Awesome freshman campaign for a seventh rounder. His offensive production is rather surprising considering he's a defensive/faceoff specialist. A unique prospect, and I'm interested to see how he progresses.
19. Bouma - Likely out for the season. Tops out as a fourth liner, but he's a great shot blocker and team guy.
20. Aliu - Not sure how the organization values him. Passionate guy, and could be a fourth line **** disturber. I don't think any of our other prospects/players possess that quality.

HM:
Breen (supposedly he's taken big steps in his game. He's a lot meaner and nastier).
Kulak (he plays on a terrible team and thus his numbers aren't quite as nice and sparkly)

Busts:
Howse
Wahl (Actually doing quite well in the ECHL but the Flames don't seem to want to give him a chance, even on the offensively challenged Heat)
Nemisz (zero points in thirteen games and he is slower than molasses. He doesn't play mean either. Hopefully the Flames don't bother qualifying him. It think it's time to move on). I can see people not agreeing with this one but I just don't see him filling any role period. Not a **** disturber like Aliu, not a shot blocker like Bouma.

Interested why you have guys like Ferland ahead of Bouma? Ferland might have more offensive upside, but he hasn't proven he can even stay up in the AHL?

I agree about Nemo, but I would trade him for a pick... asset management. You might be able to land a 3rd or another reclamation project.
