Seriously, after our top 5, the list is just depressing.

For very few teams will this not be the case. And 6-8 all have a realistic shot at being career NHL players.

I guess.

I'm moderately "high" on Schilling, while I think Wey is more like "Meh" and Groober is a complete tossup wildcard.

I think Barber is going to jump up these boards in the next couple years though.

Really don't get the people who are higher on Schilling than Wey. They performed at very similar levels during development camp and played well in shutdown roles on quality NCAA teams. But Wey is about two and a half years younger than Schilling, is bigger, and has displayed solid leadership and the ability to step up his game against higher level competition. There's a reason Wey made the WJC roster.

Don't really see much that Schlling does that I don't expect Wey to do better at his age.

I'm under the impression Schilling's skating is a decent amount better than Wey's. And that he has more offensive potential, whereas I don't expect Wey to contribute offensively at all.

I don't see either one contributing offensively, and based on what little I saw at developmental camp, Wey's the better skater. Both are good solid defensive blueliner prospects with not much separating them other than age, but I also see Wey's ceiling as a second pairing version of Alzner.

Also, while the system feels shallow right now, part of that has to do with the fact that most of the Capitals' prospects are in an unfamiliar place--college, where it's a bit harder to get a read on a prospect than in juniors and the AHL.

That said, add Haar.

I think people just prefer Schilling because he's knocking on the door now (if you take GMGM at his word), rather than a season or two from now. I don't think I do, but there's no set rule for how you weight the factors so why not?

Wey put up good offensive numbers in the USHL before he went to Boston College (34 points in 58 games as a 17/18 year old).

If Wey wasn't committed to BC for his senior year, I think he'd be neck and neck with Schilling.

Wey will be asked to take on a much bigger offensive role this season with BC early on as young, talented freshman get comfortable at the college level. He logged serious TOI last season on a team loaded with offense upfront and at the blue line. He was utilized as a shutdown pairing, top penalty kill pairing because that was the role he was needed to fill. Time in USHL, an all star as an 18 year old, suggests he will do just fine if asked to fill a PP role at the blueline. That will not be his role at the next level but he will be more then adequate in the offensive zone. Second in the last three seasons in +/- for the Eagles at
+44.


If Wey wasn't committed to BC for his senior year, I think he'd be neck and neck with Schilling.
Couldn't agree more with your comments...Wey is a lot closer then folks think to being ready for NHL caliber talent. He wants his degree. He looked very comfortable at Development Camp, as he should have as a 21 year old.
