I guess so. I really just don't like him. Again, like the Delmas opinion, my opinion on Schultz is completely biased.

Yeah, I'm gonna disagree with you on Delmas. The guy is not a very good goaltender and he doesn't have any NHL upside.

agreed , there is a reason the Avs let him go and I've seen him play live a few times too (habs camps, Q) and he just isn't an NHL quality goalie, maybe not even AHL...seriously...

I like how there is potential to expand our top 15 in a couple weeks. Time to start pumping out players who are developed to the organizations need.

Magnus Nygren was such underrated (behind Archambault and Schultz lol!), I was putting him #13 on my list and everyone was telling me I was overrating him. Leblanc and Thrower cannot be call miss evaluation, no one could have predicted this underperforming season

At the end of the day, you're still looking at a D-level prospect at best. Let's not pretend Schultz would be considered anything even remotely special if he wasn't in a prospect pool where size and fighting ability are a premium.

I don't think the thought is Schultz was special, it was that he was a safer bet to play in the NHL than the bottom 10 prospects(based on how management treated him at the end of last season). Dumont is a safe bet to make the NHL, does that mean he's a better prospect than Thrower? Some would say yes.

I've been telling everyone that wasn't the case since day 1. Only that Sgt. Pepper fool doubted the "oil sand worker" scouting report of piss poor skating and marginal (being kind) hockey I.Q.

And yes, imo, Dumont is a "better" prospect than Thrower. We're talking about the bottom half, couldn't care less stretch of prospects anyway (where Nygren didn't belong from the get-go - as I believe I may also have been saying since day 1), but Dumont actually has some big league skills; he just isn't blessed with size. Thrower, on the other hand, has very little in the way of big league skills, but is blessed with size.

I'm not sure Archambault was that bad... Getting released may straighten him out and he has some potential.

Well... he's 6' ~200 lbs at 19, as opposed to 5'9" 172 lbs at 22...
