Well yea. When you have a bottom ~2-3 prospect pool in the league for several years straight, there's really only one direction to go in
The prospect pool IS better than it was for Calgary 3-4 years ago. But that doesn't mean that league-wide it's good. Just that its better than the worst prospect pools in the league..
PS: Leafs are hated on MUCH more than Calgary. And other teams non-troll fans are still willing to admit that our prospect pool is at least decent (though not top 10 or anything). If you ignore the trolls out there, lots of people do simply post their objective analysis/criticisms, and the general consensus has been and is that Calgary has a below average prospect pool, and that doesn't stem from some Calgary-hate-bias, real or imaginary.
I haven't seen a single poster besides Calgary fans talk about Calgary having a good farm system... you call it anti-Calgary bias... When in reality its just Calgary-homer-fan bias that causes anybody at all to think they have a good farm system
