Nice to read a fairly well thought out prospect take on some of the Flames prospects here. Much better than the typical trollcentric take we get from most fans of Calgary and Vancouver at this site. (although Vancouver does have a couple of good posters here as well every once in a while).
But I have to agree with some posters here who believe that you are as delusional about some of your prospects as many of us, including myself, were for a couple (or a few, or a whole **** load).
These kids have to start looking good at the NHL level sooner rather than later, or they are just going to be left behind in the minor leagues. (My meaning of minor leagues is anything but the NHL).
Some will transition better in a different league (SEL, KHL, AHL) but if they cannot hack it in the NHL, do not be too surprised.
Anyhow, thanks for your well thought out perspective of some up and coming Flamers. Their are a couple of good ones that we will see in the NHL against the Oil I'm sure!
