Is Bartchi #1?

I might be a bit biased because I'm a huge flames fan, but in your opinion is Sven Bartchi the #1 prospect not playing in the NHL? This guy is insane! Played great for us last year for 5 games and is tearing up the ahl. I'm not counting players who haven't been drafted yet like mackinnon but out of the players recently drafted I can't think of too many that are better than Sven. Maybe someone like yakupov but I mean Bartchi really looks like something special and I have never been impressed with yakupov, even in junior

An argument could be made for top 5 but number 1 seems a little far fetched considering guys like Huberdeau, Kuznetsov, Yakupov and Granlund would be on that list. But I think Baertschi could surprise a lot of people and play beyond many peoples expectations and better then some of the players that are usually consensus on being listed ahead of him, a lot of that has to do with draft position.

Actually, it's either one. Bärtschi is the Swiss spelling, Baertschi is just the North American one. He wore Bartschi during his time with the Winter Hawks.

He missed the "s", thus spelling it as "Bartchi".

Sven wore Bärtschi with Portland.

I don't really understand why his name should be transcripted with ae when Scandinavian players as well as other Germans don't do this with åäö and even ü. I guess it's fine if that's how he wants it but I don't really see the point, to me it just looks strange and no pbp is going to pronounce it "correctly" anyway.

Actually, a good nickname for him (other than svensational) would be cheddar. I often hear people say Bear-Cheese anyways haha.

Bartschi might be the best. I think he'll be the best prospect because he's already displayed so much raw talent and the Calder race usually has an unknown player in the mix. Given that nobody, excluding Flames fans, know about the Flames prospects, Bartschi will be an underdog in the mix.

Bart is still in the West, and as such won't get a good look from Eastern media.

However, I can see Bart being in the top 3 despite the Eastern bias

In terms of Current skill, and ignoring guys like Eberle and Hall who should be in the NHL right now, yes, but Yakupov obviously has a higher ceiling, but Sven isnt that far behind, Calgary is looking at a force if they can get another iginla type player

Leafs fan here, I absolutely love this guy, I think an argument can be made for top 3, but in my book he is definitely top 5 right now, and could certainly overtake for top 3 spot.

What a beast.

No. I'll say he's the best just to annoy everyone, but he's not.

No, simply due to his lack of "professional" experience he has compared to the likes of Tarasenko, Granlund and Kuznetsov.

Unfortunately he missed the WJC's due to injury which would have helped him gain even more recognition across the hockey world as well.

With all that said, there is not a single prospect out there that I would trade Baertschi for. His mix of skill, passion and work ethic are extremely rare and will set him above the majority of these players moving forward in my opinion.

Burtshe is the best prospect in the world hands down.

I think Tarasenko might be better as far as proven record sofar. Sven might be much more well rounded than him and Kuz though. Would love to have a Hossa clone.

#47 IN YOUR PROGRAMS, #1 IN YOUR HEARTS!

Or something like that. I'll add to the butchering of his name. Bestchi?

But is he the best player currently not playing in the NHL? Well, I'd argue that there are 700 other guys not playing in the NHL right now, and if/when the lockout ends he'll most likely be with the Flames, so its kind of a dumb statement really.
