Round of 128: "Best NA Pro Prospect" - 49. Drayson Bowman vs. 80. Brenden Dillon

HFBoards as a whole has a tendency to overrate prospects not playing North American Pro Hockey because they haven't been exposed yet. So I'm doing a 128-player tournament of players that have only played North American Pro Hockey.


QUALIFICATIONS: Minimum of 50 AHL + NHL games played (20 AHL + NHL games played for Gs); Maximum of 100 NHL games played (30 NHL games played for Gs); 26 years old or younger by 12/31/12; Signed to play in North America next season; Can't have played more than 50 NHL games in 11/12 NHL season, injured players exempt (ie. Mike Sauer, Jacob Josefson, etc.)

Disclaimer: This is based on my own subjective rankings. So if you don't like them, too bad - the best will win in the end. If I overlooked someone: too late the bracket is already made. Made a total list of ~200 but pared it down to 128.

Don't let Dillon's undrafted status fool you, he was recently voted by Stars fans their 5th best prospect, ahead of promising third rounders Reilly Smith, Cody Eakin, and second rounder Patrik Nemeth.

He was very undersized during his draft years, but he's a big guy now (6'2") and he uses his size well.

I personally would go and vote for Dillon. He just is a type of player I like.
