Top 5 prospect pools in the NHL

Rank the top 5 prospect pools in the NHL.

I would say:

1. Minnesota Wild: Granlund, Dumba, Brodin, Coyle, Larsson, Phillips.
2. Florida Panthers: Huberdeau, Bjugstad, Shore, Petrovic, Matheson, Grimaldi.
3. New York Islanders: Strome, Reinhart, Kabanov, Nelson, Lee, Mayfield.
4. Edmonton Oilers: Yakupov, Schultz, Klefbom, Marincin, Gernat, Musil.
5. Montreal Canadiens: Galchenyuk, Collberg, Beaulieu, Kristo, Tinordi, .
HM: Ottawa Senators and Chicago Blackhawks.

-Definetely think Islanders are at least HM.
-St. Louis is behind Minny, Florida, Edmonton, NYI, Montreal, Ottawa, Chicago, Washington, Detroit and Pittsburgh, IMO.
-I dont see too much talent in the Buffalo pool. Somewhere around 15 for me.
-Pittsburgh is top 10 but only 1 good forward. Plenty of D though with Morrow, Harrington, Maata, Pouliot...

I agree. I included guys like Yakupov, Schultz, Huberdeau, Galchenyuk... because they are still young and could be in juniors but Detroit has planty of talent that arent big names like that. Jurco, Smith, Jarknrok...

Not top 5 but I think Anaheim should be up there

Peter Holland: great year in Norfolk.
Kyle Palmieri: still kind of a prospect but he's almost locked himself into our top 6. Great scoring skill
Emerson Etem: hasn't hit his scoring stride in the NHL yet but he looks like a pro. Top 9 already
John Gibson: one of the top goalie prospects in the world right now
Rickard Rakell: strong two way player in the OHL. Not far from being an NHL regular.
Hampus Lindholm: arguably Norfolk's best blueliner when healthy. Terrific blueliner in his own zone.
Kevin Roy: NCAA's top scoring rookie. Not far from Johnny Gaudreau in scoring as a freshman.
Sami Vatanen: still adjusting to the North American game but it can't hurt having the first defenseman to be awarded Finlands version of the Norris trophy twice in a row since Kimmo Timmonen can't hurt.
Frederick Andersen: had a bit of a rocky start in Norfolk but now he's a candidate for rookie of the year.
Devante Smith Pelly: the way he has played this year I almost didn't include him. But based on how he played the year before ill say he still has good potential.
William Karlsson: great rookie in the SEL. Top 6 material. Centered Sweden's top line at the WJC.
Nic Kerdiles: decent enough freshman at Wisconsin. Was expecting bigger numbers, but he has good two way play.

I'm primarily a Sens fan, but I'm also a big Flyers fan. I'd definitely put the sens in the top 5 if you're considering Zibby and Silfverberg to still be prospects (They've already burned contract years), but I would NEVER put Philly on the list, lol.

Without even looking at rosters and specs, before the season began, Ottawa, Florida, St.Louis and Minny seem to have been the most frequent teams in people's top 5's (online, by analysts and so on...)

I would switch Zharkov with Musil or Rieder. And just for Yakupov, Schultz and Klefbom alone that should be #1.

No Panthers? Really Caps fan? Your division rivals glasses are on.

Leafs will produce a lot of NHLers, not highly skilled ones though.

Canucks fans will arduously argue that our prospect pool is the worst. It probably is, but eh.

Maybe top 10, but top 5 is a bit of a stretch.

Galchenyuk, yes.
Collberg, logging 10-15 minutes a game. He is playing against men already though.
Beaulieu, nice offensive-defenseman type prospect but he needs to continue developping. He's maybe 2-3 years away from making the team.
Kristo, I don't see it with Kristo. He has great games but then he is a no-show in others and this is the NCAA we're talking about. If he wants to make the Habs - something he's said he's more than ready for, he'll need to improve drastically to get a sniff.
Tinordi, likely the defensive prospect to get a crack at the roster next year above every other prospect. I'm very high on him.
Leblanc, a bit of a mystery. He was in the NHL last year, this year he is struggling to find his game in the AHL. Then again, every player down in Hamilton is having a hard time, so I wouldn't put too much stock in that. Gallagher wasn't having it so easy either and he's doing great in the NHL.

Would bring up Tampa in the HM section (so in the top10)

1 Vasilevski.
After him the next 10 - 15 have all Top4/Top6 potential or in case of Tokarski and Janus average starter potential.

They lack the sexy names and the Yakupovs Huberdeaus but have one of the deepest pools in the league

I think we're better than San Jose. No one else springs to mind though.

Didnt a significant amount of these "prospects" graduate? This list is extremely skewed.
