Some people in here are either really young or have a short memory.

It's really frequent that highly rated prospects bust, even after tey have reached the NHL.

There should even be such a thing as a "A" prospect, while "B"s should be rare.

In exemple, to become a solid NHLer, Tinordi will have to improve his skating a lot(not straight line obviously, but in the corners). If he doesn't, he will stay a #7 dman. So there's no way he should be a 7B. I think he's will be great btw, but I might be wrong.

Imo, Gallagher overachieved last year. Again I might be wrong, but if I'm not, do we really need a 30 pts / year, 5'8'' player on the 3rd line? That's why he's a C. It's second line or bust for him basically.

Some of our "surefire" prospects will bust miserably, while some of the lesser known guys will become solid players.
