Like I said, most will bust, not everyone.

This is not based on a crystal ball. This is based of more then a decade of following the Montreal Canadiens and the great tendency of this board of overrating our own prospects due to excitement. If you want any proof of this, just make you own research of the prospects lineup we've been discussing in the past and tell me they were realistic.

Fact is, we'll find a positive consensus on this board on most prospects until they reach their potential. In the end, some prospects will find a way up in the pro's and most will not crack an NHL lineup. And this is not bashing on prospects since it's actually a really hard task. Many factors can lead to success or failure and timing is one of them.
