well of course you are comparing them, but for me, I compare them on even terms. So in the case of Pateryn vs Didier vs Reway, you have 3 prospects that are all at different stages of development. Clearly Pateryn is closer to the NHL but he's in year 5 of his development, Dider is just in year 3 and Reway in year 1. So in this case when comparing Reway to the others I compare the others not at their current level but where they were at during their first year of development to be on even footing with Reway.

When I compare Didier to others I compare him to how each player was in his 3rd year of devleopment, etc...

Great article, montreal!

Mac on top is very interesting and has me pretty excited.

I for one like that you don't count NHL readiness. It makes it more interesting and also involves a lot more thought on your end. Amazing as always.
Thanks.
