Cory Pronman's Top 10 Canes Prospects

Very informative.

1. Ryan Murphy, Defense
2. Victor Rask, Center
3. Jeremy Welsh, Left Wing
4. Zac Dalpe, Center
5. Danny Biega, Defense
6. Chris Terry, Left Wing
7. Phil Di Giuseppe, Left Wing
8. Erik Karlsson, Left Wing
9. Riley Nash, Center
10.Mark Alt, Defense

Most interesting thing is that he says "the sky is the limit" for Faulk, and likes him *more* than Skinner.

Here's our top 10 so far for comparison:

1) D Ryan Murphy - ∞
2) C Victor Rask - 51%
3) C/RW Zac Dalpe - 42.5%
4) C Jeremy Welsh - 48.8%
5) LW Philip Di Giuseppe - 38.3%
6) D Danny Biega - 54.1%
7) D Bobby Sanguinetti - 41.4%
8) D Mark Alt - 31.6%
9) C/LW Erik Karlsson - 38. 10 %

Pretty dang close, actually

I don't find that interesting. Faulk has elements of his game that do not involve puckhogging and whining/diving, which is more than you can say about Bieber.

Why are people so down on Di Giuseppe? Is it because he's a long way from playing the NHL or does he really have less potential than Chris Terry? He was a fairly high pick in comparison to the others around him on that list.

I don't think people are that down on him. Part of it is probably that he is new to the organization, but he really wasn't that high of a pick compared to some of the others on the list. He was a 2nd round pick in a weak draft.

The guys ahead of him on that list are:

Murphy: 1st round pick
Rask: 2nd round pick
Welsh: 24 year old highly sought after NCAA player
Dalpe: 2nd round pick
Biega: 3rd round pick in a deep draft who has excelled in NCAA
Terry: one of the leading scorers in Canes AHL affiliate the last 2 years.

Murphy, Rask and Dalpe were all 1st/2nd round picks like di giuseppe. Welsh and Biega could be viewed as later bloomers.

Well, in Pronman's list #3 through #8 are really close (they're all described as being barely top 6 or top 4 if they reach their potential)

Pronman admitted he's lower on Di Giuseppe than most people when he did his rankings of the top 100 draft prospects. Had him in the 50s, knew he might get taken anywhere from late first to early second (so 25-45). He doesn't like his decision-making inconsistency

A very realistic look at what we have. I like how he mentions welsh has limited playmaking skill, I just don't see him as a center at all. Not in the NHL, especially with the two guys we have in front of him. I agree we have Murphy and rask as legit prospects, and everything else is a question mark other than maybe Nash. Nash is legit for a bottom six role, he's the one we don't expect offense from anyway. He can check and win draws now.

Rask and his skating. Rough. Hard to hang hopes on a guy who struggles to skate at the level.

One inopportune transposition from major embarrassment. And not to mention the hell that must have been middle school.

If Chris Terry had a shot at being a below average second line forward, wouldn't we have seen him in the NHL by now at 23?
