I posted this same question in the Poll board but there's been no response to it. So I think it would get a bit of a better response here. Anyways the original question
" I was debating with my friend about the wings prospect pool. He said that the wings would be lucky to have a top 15 prospect pool while he proceeded to call me the biggest homer on the planet. I personally think that they're anywhere from 9-13 depending on how the playoffs go for some of their prospects. So my question to you HF is am I really that big of a homer, or are the wings indeed a top 15 prospect pool?"
Hopefully I'm not to far off based in my rating of Detroit's pool.
Edit: Just to let you guys know that I'm using HFs definition of a prospect.

I think top 15 is fair. They don't have any prospects aside from Smith that are necessarily 'elite', but that's just because of their draft position. I am very pleased with the all around depth and potential from all these guys, beyond what's listed here. Most of their prospects have a legitimate chance of being very good players. However, other than Smith, Nyquist and Jarnkrok I don't know if they have a sure thing like a lot of teams do.
