Round of 128: "Best NA Pro Prospect" - 48. Eric Tangradi vs. 81. Blake Geoffrion

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.


48. Eric Tangradi (PIT)



81. Blake Geoffrion (MTL)

Good comparison, Geoffrion has been given more opportunities to succeed in the NHL but I feel that Tangradi is better and will have a better future once properly developed (who knows if that will ever happen in Pittsburgh's system).

Tangradi. Geoffrion isn't gritty or good enough on defense to get himself a spot on the third or fourth line and he doesn't have any special offensive attributes to justify a spot on the top two lines. Tangradi seems to have a bit more upside. In the end I doubt either becomes more than fringe NHLers.
