As for that list I think it's fair to add Ferland and Kulak to the list as well.
Why? Why do you think Calgarys, and only Calgarys prospects go under the radar?
Please give me a logical laid out explanation for this. A good solid explanation as to why fans, professional scouts, sports analysts, and essentially everyone just seem to miss the great prospects that make up the Calgary farm system, underrate the heck out of it, and overrate everyone elses. It makes zero sense.
If anything, being a Canadian team, Calgary should get far MORE attention than teams like TB, Nashville, Phoenix, Columbus, Florida, etc, which don't have particularly huge followings and don't get as much exposure on TV.
Just because most of your prospects have shown improvements since being drafted, doesnt make them B-Prospects. What exactly do you expect from 19/20 year olds playing in a league that includes 16/17 year olds? Almost all CHL players show substantial improvement from their draft year to 1-2 years later.
