It is a testament to how deep the wings prospect pool is. For some good reading this is the best site for our detailed prospect reviews. Goes in a bit more depth. It is run by the guy that runs capgeek (a redwing fan).
You could I suppose add the following:
Athanasiou (arguably isn't even in our top 20! and is having a monster year)
At some point these guys just become Corey Emmerton type mid range prospects (not worth noting). Though Emmerton has become a pretty good NHL forward in the last two years. We all thought he and Lashoff were destined to be waiver fodder.
I think Wings fans are afraid to start saying we have a top 5 prospect pool which is keeping us modest in the 5-10 range. In reality they have a case for as high as top 3.
