This thread screams Sgarbossa.


Also Nikita Kucherov.

I think he's pretty well known at this point.

The only guy that comes to mind from Buffalo's pool is Hurley. He's very young and a long way out, but he has a lot of tools.

60 points would be the absolute upside I think, and although I would be thrilled, it would have a lot to do with who he was playing with.. I see Bozon as more of a complimentary second line guy. Good but not great (which is what Im hoping he would have to be to get 1st line duties in mtl in a few years).

Maybe Im missing someting but i see Bozon as kind of an equivalent to Martin Rucinsky (not style wise, but talent wise).

In terms of low radar potential 1st liners I like Hudon for Mtl and Justin Bailey in general.. was a bit miffed that Buffalo got him

Although, if Cammarata can get past the size issues he could surprise easily

Why is this a bad thing. I would think a fan of a certain team has done more research on a prospect belonging to their team. They certainly bring more to the discussion than the condescending poster to tries to generalize the thread in an attempt to seem important.

Is that the guy Anaheim drafted in the 6th round?

With Nashville, we're hoping Pontus Aberg (2nd round/#37 in 2012) can eventually be a top line winger.

I have yet to see you make any kind of an informative post.

So tell me BATMAN, who is a lesser known prospect with first line potential who isn't a prospect for your favorite team?

Maxim Trunev and Alexander Avstin

If everything goes right : Collberg, Andrighetto, Bozon, Thomas, Lehkonen and Hudon could surprise. Holland could also be top-6er, but probably not 1st-liner.

I don't think Trocheck has first line potential.

IF anyone, lesser know, is Grimaldi*.
Longshot, but, he has the ability.

Compared to Bjugstad, Barkov, who everyone has read about.

Jimmy Lodge. Has all the talent to be a stud.

For the Sens...Shane Prince and Ryan Dzingel have been very impressive every time I've seen them.

Tim Harrison

Crazy I know, but he has all the attributes to be a very good power forward, but to say he is extremely raw is an understatement. he stands 6'3, he bowls over anyone who gets in his way (just ask Baertschi), he shates very well and has very good offensive instincts.

I am really looking for to seeing how he develops at Colgate over the next couple/few years

Totally agree with Kucherov.
Like the Palat, Fast, Leivo, and Johnson mentions too. All on my UFHL keeper roster

Max Friberg and Kirill Petrov are a couple names to chew on too.

I have a feeling the only way Trocheck or Grimaldi will ever play in an NHL top-six, they will have to move over to a wing. Grimaldi is never going to be able to hang as a center. He could be a nice winger since he's got the already got great speed, acceleration and grit. Trocheck adds more and more to his game every single year, so we'll see how much he improves moving forward into his first pro year. Both are very intriguing hockey prospects regardless. Love 'em!

Grimaldi is known.

This isn't a thread for players who were hyped but fell. It's for legit late round guys who were never really hyped but look great.

Sgarbossa could end up being the next best undrafted prospect.

Somene mentioned Rajala, that kid is the real deal. Charles Sarault and Kucherov as well.

No one on the Canucks side. Although apparently Jensen is underrated among fans of other teams, I'll throw him out there.

Carter Verhage and Josh Leivo come to mind for the leafs (of course it is unlikely)

For the Isles I'm gonna go with Anders Lee and Kirill Kabanov. Lee within 3-4 years and Kabanov within 2 years if they can develop and put it together. Both have high ceilings.

I realize it is basically impossible to have a unknown player to have first line potential so this topic starts off asking for reaches but I don't think Harrison has that kind of potential. I think at best he projects to a real good third liner not that that is bad as the Flames had to manually add him to the draft () but I think this is a big reach.
