AHL player at best

Lol @ people commenting career Ahler and fringe Nhler. I will put a bet with anyone that he is a sure-fire NHLer Likely a 3rd liner and solid 4th liner at worst.

Same team, yes. Same line, no.

How do you peg him as 4th liner at best or an AHL player? What are you basing this on?

players who project to be 3rd liners aren't blue chip prospects

He is doing a good Tucker impersonation as we speak.

My objective (but definitaly not unbias) opinion on Ross:
He doesnt play on the Hawks top line, so his production is not at all inflated by Rattie

Hes not a blue chip prospect, and doesnt have high end talent

He does have legit 3rd line NHL potential, and he brings some intangibles.

This is generally what I've heard about him. I think if he makes a name for himself in the NHL, it will be as an agitator. I've read he's been to therapy for anger issues.

Whoever said Ross is a bluechipper needs to be banned from the prospects board forever. He'll be a 3rd liner at most.

what is Kassian? projected to be 3rd liner, 2nd at best ...

Ross is not as physical/strong, but is more of a pest

if he has the potential to become a GREAT 3rd liner, Clutterbuck mold

he could also become a Lucic/Clowe like player if his offense translates

I don't care if he's a bluechipper or whatever that means. If he becomes something as crazy (and relatively skilled) as Tucker was, it's a win.

Brad Ross is as much a bluechipper as Jerry D'Amigo. That is to say, not. When you use the term blue chip prospect, one should be referring to the top prospects in the game, guys that are going to step in and get top six minutes, put up 60+ points at the very least. That ain't Ross.

You're not talking about Ross are you? Surely you mean Kassian. If so, my mistake. If not.........................................

The only way it would be even remotely possible is if he was somehow capable of adding 30ish pounds to his frame. With the game he plays, i just dont see it.

Calling him a blue chip prospect is ridiculous, but I do like him. I'll stick with what I said earlier in this thread, before it was necroed: he should be a good, pesky 3rd liner. I think he has a very high chance to make the NHL as a useful bottom 6 role player/pest, though a fairly low chance to be any sort of star. I might have been a bit optimistic saying that he'll spend next season split between the NHL and AHL, I think next year Kadri and Frattin will both be ahead of him for those 3rd line NHL minutes, but he should be a solid AHLer next year, and should make the NHL eventually.

Agreed, too much depth in the AHL atm for him to make the big team.

Our "3rd" line isn't your typical 3rd line in the NHL. Right now we still have 2nd line failures in Lombardi and Connolly. Armstrong fits the typical mould, as should Ross.

My guess is by next season Burke will start to make space for his bottom 6 prospects. If Ross can put on a decent show in the preseason, he will likely get at least a start up here to bring some much needed grit to our lineup. If any players get an extended look it could those that fill a real need.

If Brad Ross is a blue chipper to you then you must think the Leafs have a dozen blue chip prospects. If this is the case I say we call the Oilers and offer up all of our blue chip prospects for theirs. All 12 of them for RNH,Hall and Eberle. 12 is better than 3 right? Oilers can't resist this gratuitous offer.

He will be what he was drafted to be. A third line agitator with some offensive upside.
