St. Louis Blues – Top 5 Prospects (The Hockey Writers)

THW's Shawn Reznik's take on the top 5 Blues prospects with some honourable mentions. I'm guessing many would prefer to see more prospects ranked, but worth the read...

http://thehockeywriters.com/st-louis...p-5-prospects/

Excerpt:

Quote:
"Much like Ian Cole, Tarasenko is built like a Soviet T-34-85 tank and certainly isn’t afraid to use his strength to his advantage. Throwing the body around and going into the dirty areas of the rink is one of Tarasenko’s specialties and it was showcased during his play in Buffalo. The speedy, tenacious winger can beat you with his acceleration, balance, dangles and most importantly, scoring."

Wait. No Brock Beukeboom in the top 10????? How dare someone who follows the prospects make a list.

Good read.

Schwartz will be headed back to Colorado College barring a fantastic showing at training camp.
I would think that the writer would know that college players can't attend training camp and retain their NCAA eligibility. Oh well.

There were a few other errors and it seems that the writer is mostly just familiar with Allen and Tarasenko from 1-2 games at their respective WJC appearances but overall, not a bad overview.

I still don't agree on Grachev as our number five, but I like the article none-the-less

I believe Grachev was traded for a 3rd round pick, not a 4th.

That is correct. Shoddy research by the journalist.
