Chucko is 17th in the AHL in goal scoring this year, seems top 10 prospect worthy.

so whats the verdict? anyone seen it?

So far I know Backlund is 14th overall and Nemisz is 59th. No other Flames prospect in the top 75, so Irving has dropped out from last years top 75

1. Backlund
2. Nemisz
3-10. ????????

Just got the copy in the mail today. Here are THN's top 10.

1. Mikael Backlund(14th overall)
2. Greg Nemisz(59th overall)
3. Leland Irving
4. Mitch Wahl
5. Kris Chucko
6. John Negrin
7. Matt Pelech
8. Brett Sutter
9. T.J. Brodie
10. Keith Aulie

Intersting for sure. Bit surprised to see Wahl so high. Not sure I really agree and I really like Wahl. Thought Aulie would higher as he has probably raised his stock the most in the last year.

i can see sutter being a solid 3rd line checker/energy guy and key penalty killer... i may not put him at 8 but i have no issues with him being in our top 10... i see him as the same guy as Nystrom

I really have no problem with Sutter's ranking. The kid will be a sure fire NHLer (imo of course). 3rd/4th liner is his top potential, but there is no doubt in my mind he'll play in this league. I think Lunatik is bang on with the Nystrom comparision. Maybe a bit more offence can be expected out of Sutter.

That's actually not a bad list, especially for THN who's usually way off at these types of things. Thankfully they didn't have Ryder and Puustinen like other prospect lists *cough*.

Yeah have to give THN credit - that's a pretty good list.

Also for those interested THN gave the flames organization a C grade and ranked 26th out of the 30 teams.
