World-Famous 10th Semi-Annual Beacon Prospect Poll: #1 NYR Prospect

With all our prospects eliminated from the WJC, now is the time to get back to ranking our prospects. We will rank our top-25 kids and the 5 who will remain in the poll, but won't make the top-25 will become Honorable Mentions.

Please write who you want added to the poll, and give a reason for it. This makes the discussion here more lively.


WHO IS A PROSPECT: We can't all have different standards based on what we each want personally. We are on the HF board, so let's follow their rules. The standard for what's a prospect is here:

* Please don't write that so-and-so should or should not be a prospect. It's not up to each individual here to decide, it's up to the HF rules. Therefore, since no NHL games were played, all the prospects from the summer are still eligible because no NHL games were played

HOW TO RANK PROSPECTS: Based on their value in a hypothetical trade or waiver draft. This takes into consideration a prospect's ceiling, how close he's to making it, his health, work ethic, the whole deal. Imagine there was a prospect waiver draft and you could keep only one prospect. That guy is our #1 prospect. Then imagine we had one more waiver protection. That guy is our #2 prospect.

CATEGORIES: We'll be ranking the top 20 prospects.

- The top 5 will be "Top Prospects"
- The second 5 will be "Second-Tier"
- The third 5 "Projects"
- The fourth 5 will be "Suspects"
- The fifth 5 will be "Long Shots"
- The remaining 5 prospects who made it into the poll, but were not voted into the top-25 will be listed as "Honorable Mentions," their order being determined by how many votes they got in the last round.

The first 6 options in the poll are the top 6 prospects from the winter who haven't graduated.
