That's actually not that awful. I'm surprised.

we'd be looking a lot worse if it weren't for several surprises. Ferriero came out of nowhere, demers did as well(what a great draft pick he seems to be, 186th overall). With all of our goalie picks it's not a surprise that they're improving(other than sexsmith). I'm surprised they rated Petrecki so high despite his falloff in the AHL.

Good to hear of some of the guy's i've never heard of having good seasons in their respective leagues.

Frazer mclaren was a pretty big surprise for me this season as well. I'd like to see him get another chance to fill the enforcer role soon, still not a big staubitz fan because of his tendency to get dumb penalties.

Agreed. Just some nit-picky stuff...

Nick Petrecki is rated way too high.

Greiss isn't a prospect anymore.

Tyson Sexsmith wasn't injured in Worcester, he arrived injured and tried to play though it.

Brandon Mashinter generally plays on the 4th line and fills in on the upper lines as needed.

I'm surprised. That actually seems pretty accurate.

I actually can't complain about that list too much. Kudos to the writer for doing a competent job (a nice change of pace on Shark prospect lists)

I agree on Nick, what do you think his rating and position in the top 20 should be?
I can't see him as a top 5, I'm thinking he'd be in the middle some where, more like a 7C.

I think Ferrerio is closer to a 7C.

Well, both Zalewski and Ferriero are pretty much wingers now. So I don't think the lack of winger prospects in the system is as bad as it looks even if closest thing we have to a blue-chip prospect is Frazer McLaren or Ferriero. I'm certainly still feeling somewhat better about our long term defense prospects than our wingers. On a related note, anyone know if Wingels is the kind of player that could transition to wing effectively? (He's a right shot, and unless he's fond of his off wing, he would probably play RW. It would make me feel better about not having any decent RW prospects outside of Ferriero.)

It concerns me a little bit. It should have an impact on our draft strategy, especially in the later rounds.
On the other hand, it is very likely that we will have a cheap backup for years to come (and perhaps a good starter out of that group) for the next five or so years to come, which will give us more liberties on FA signings.

i think they're all trade bait. doesn't matter what positions they play, it matters how much they're worth.

Nobody among our prospects is close to being untouchable (applies to most teams). The fact that we have depth in net is an advantage, teams like the Ducks (who actually have in Pielmeier a former shark prospect who dressed for a game some days ago) might be leaning towards giving up some assets (ok, not necessarily someone likes Huskins/Moen again).

Have you seen pielmeier play against the stockton thunder? He's a whole bunch of "meh" and "blah".

I've seen him maybe 3 times, and he's sucked in every game. I'm in no way upset about us giving him up. He's a crappier german goalie than patzold.

(looks like HF overrates him too, 7.5C for him...)

Exactly. DW is creative. If there's a need, he'll find a way to get it.

No true #1 Center, Trade for Thornton.

Need picks? Trade Toskala to Toronto.

No #1 D in the system, fine. Trade for Campbell. Campbell doesn't re-sign. Trade for Boyle.

No Elite goal-scorer in the system, no problem. Trade for Heatley.

Since the lockout no GM has made more blockbuster trades than DW.

Wingels can play center or either wing position and has played all three positions over the past three years. However, most of the time he has played right wing.
