Round of 128: "Best NA Pro Prospect" - 18. Jordan Caron vs. 111. Brandon Manning

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.

Caron, but Manning has shown good stuff in his limited NHL duty. Hopefully he continues to grow

Caron, but I was happy with Manning's play last year. A small sample maybe, but he did well.
