Tampa Bay Lightning 2013 Prospect Rankings - #1

Note: In contrast to HF's and BP's criteria of eligibility both Brett Connolly and Riku Helenius are deemed eligible for our 2013 HFB prospect rankings as per our previous vote.

Crabby must be disappointed that Fucale was somehow left off the list.

I picked Vasya. I know Drouin and possibly a few more will make the show before him, but no other position in hockey is as important as Goalie imo. Good goal tending can take you from an 8 seed to lifting 36lbs of silver ("I used to do quite well in the playoffs until I took a MAB to the knee." -- Dwayne Roloson)

Although I must admit that having a goalie prospect like Vasya is extremely important for the organization, I've voted Drouin on this one because of his franchise talent.

P.S. Add Sergeev

Why?


Anyway, the answer is Drouin.

These boards overrate Drouin so much. Just because he makes fancy dekes in development camp videos against the Lightning's weak prospect group doesn't mean he's a good player. I mean look at this video, it's proof that he isn't NHL material:



As you can see he clearly doesn't have the size to pull off those fancy moves in the NHL. He's going to get hit hard and often if he tries anything. I don't want to hear that he's the same size as Patrick Kane. As you can see from the video, he clearly doesn't have the same speed as Patrick Kane. He needs that speed to make up for his size. I don't care if he's agile or elusive. At best he's another Rob Schremp. This is just another case of HFBoards obsessing over a highlight package.

You're crazy - his toughness is off the charts- he absolutely BODIES Anthony Duclair 25 seconds in!
