Meaning LW Bud Holloway, RW Oscar Moller, D Andrew Campbell, D Andrew Bodnarchuk, C Marc-Andre Cliche and C Justin Azevedo are not considered prospects (this is an all-inclusive list of players not eligible that are Kings property + not on Kings).
It's a good vote. Some say he was the best goalie in junior hockey last year. Went with Miller, but I am voting Bartosak next. Consider he had 5 shutouts, a .935 save percentage...and his backup was 5-10 record, so it's not like the RedDeer Rebels were great - Bartosak was their MVP.
He's around this range on my list. I have Jones then him right now as for who will be getting my votes. I like Mersch a lot. I just think there's ~10 prospects better than him.
I think this board, like many boards on HF has a tendency to overrate Russian prospects. As someone who has been on this board since the late 90's I could list of so many names of Russian prospects who were supposed to be can't miss and they missed. Including many from this team. Volkov, Lyubushin, Schefer, Pushkaryev, Anshakov Fedorov.
I don't know, I haven't seen any of the Russians play in person, we will see. But getting back to Mersch and some other debates on this list, having seen plenty of Mersch, Gravel and Forbort. It's pretty laughable where they are all ranked. The spots in the rankings are probably right, but the players themselves should be different. But Gravel and Mersch weren't first round picks, it's the only thing I can think of.
I'm waiting for HF's list to be posted before I post mine too. I have all 32 of them ranked, mostly out of boredom.
Great. Your name was one of the ones I was thinking of when I said that we have allot of solid posters here who have put up their lists.
I get mired in ranking sheets and lists that turn kids into forms and numbers so when it comes to our prospects I usually try to go as in depth as I can. That said I really enjoy seeing what others have to say about the kids and usually learn a thing or two as well.
Might be able to soon though. It's out of my hands though. Just something I don't really wanna talk about until I figure some stuff out. Would love to post my write ups if I can though.
lol ok fair enuff What id love to see is a sticky thread with all the write up anyone wants to make. With this sticky it makes it alot easier for trade proposals for the teams wanting a report on how a player plays. this way when someone asks about a player u can just send them to it.
