going kucherov...him coming over to NA, hes now more likely to achieve his nhl dream and I think this kids ceiling could be amazing. Top line winger talent, i guess could be boom or bust, but the upside I feel is the highest of the prospects. Namestnikov I would think as a ceiling of 2nd-3rd line good 2-way center, but maybe more likely to reach potential due to known work ethic. Koo Koo a solid 2nd pairing 2 way Dman as well a safe bet to reach potential..but hey im not a scout haha
It's not really about not believing in Tic. He's still good and will be a decent NHL goalie.
It's more that for a long time he was the top prospect in a very weak pool. Now, very quickly, we have some pretty good depth and a lot more choice.
That is fair enough, I just think don't agree that Vasilevski should be first, he got talent for sure but just proven it the russian minor leaague and goalies are the toughest to judge, at least Tic proved his ability at AHL level (including playoffs) and is closer the NHL.
