I think this is the last year that Jason Akeson should be considered a prospect. Yes everyone knows I dont like him but he is going to be 24 next June. At some point you have to draw the line.

My point was being they turn pro at 20 because they have no choice but to. CHL players have to sign a deal within 2 years compared to an NCAA player who have to in 4 years.

If he signed with the Canes when they wanted him to he would have been playing in the AHL at 20 right with the CHL players who got signed & had no eligibility in their league anymore.

Ok, not trying to be a dick but that doesn't change anything.

Well you were using his age as strike against him, he may not turn into anything but its a little silly to use his age & the time he turned pro against him.

I mean Gostisbehere will be turning pro at the same age likely.

I was saying he has a lot to work on, which is true. And that while he isn't old he's not exactly young either, which is also true. People reading the comment can take that any way they want, I just provided some facts.

I honestly think he's got a hot at being something in say two years or so but to say at this point considering his age and the fact that he hasn't progressed (when in college) as most woild've liked its a little far fetched to at he definitely has an NHL future.

I agree. The same applies to everyone in the top 8 as well with the exception of probably Laughton since he's so close to NHL ready.

Yes, and to be clear I define having and NHL future as playing at least 200 games in the league.

I went with MA Bourdon, but only as a lesser of two evils between him and Akeson. If Bourdon wasn't so injury prone I would be a lot more confident in that pick but for a 23 year old, he sure has health issues.
