At this point I have to start going with guys i feel will be closer to starters for their NHL career....and that means Hackett slides in at #5.

Just feel comfortable that he will be a quality NHL starting goaltender.

Anyone who is basing any of their rankings off those two scrimmages is out of their mind!

You watched a stream of the Thursday scrimmage and you didn't (in a meaningful way) watch the stream of the Sunday scrimmage. I was in arena for both of them. Yet, you accuse me of not using logic?

You: I watched a stream. First half of Thursday, Coyle sucked, therefore Coyle played very poorly in ALL of the scrimmage. Anyone that disagrees with me is either lying to themselves or didn't watch.

I do not expect you to see the logic failure here, but I do expect you to fall back to name calling and arguing nothing but semantics. I also expect you to draw a concrete generality based on an extremely limited set of data.
Go back and look at almost every single person's review of the scrimmages. Dan's Recap is the most positive thing you could find about it:

He played well this game, but he didn't dominate like many thought he would. I still think he has a great future, but suggest maybe we be patient with him rather than throwing him straight into the NHL.
When the most complimentary thing the most positive review of his play is that our expectations are too high, that's not exactly a good sign. So keep with your high and mighty "I was there watching him therefore everything I say is 1000% accurate" ******** and try actually address the facts at play from everyone else who was there but disagrees with you.

But keep saying that our 5th best prospect is the guy who was so debilitating that Coyle couldn't do well, I see it's working real well for you.

Going overboard? I think not.
Coyle is Gordie Howe-lite

Granlund is Gretzky-lite

X Prospect is Y Star-lite

Going overboard on a comparative analogy is easy and can be used for any player/Star, regardless of inherent absurdness.

No way... if Granlund's anything-lite he's Datsyuk-lite.

he was given a 2-way deal and he re-signed. I expect he'll end up in Houston... but he could be held as the 14th forward behind Kassian.

Veilleux was brought in to create competition in training camp. No one will work harder than him....so with him being there, it will raise the level of compete among everyone else.
