Maybe he's into tall, skinny brunettes?

Graves - add Bodie,
then Skapski, Mantha, St Croix
seems St.Croix has been on the radar forever, but he's only had one year pro, and he finished strong (as did fellow rookie from the W, Nicholls)
Mantha is a bit of a wild card, but I respect Gordie Clark's judgement, and having been recruited by No Dak is a testament to his performance and potential

Went with Nieves again. Same conditions apply. Ceiling to me is a 2nd line center. He went down last year, but he is now in his junior season. He has to perform this year. I'd be more of his freshman year than sophomore year will be shown.

yeah almost as mind-boggling as Haggerty, with only 1 dominant season on his record, and not seen as well-rounded, being in ahead of the guys on today's list

Tommy Hughes may be more likely to have a notable NHL career than Haggerty, and he wont make this group's top 15

Leslie, who is generally on the conservative side when it comes to rating prospects, graded Haggerty as a 7.0D, evidently feeling there's a lot of upside with him. Similarly, there were a number of places that published their "Top College Free Agents" lists and were pretty effusive in their praise for his game and overall potential. There are quite a few people that are high on him.

Your point is well-made though. IMO, the farther down the list you go, the farther the pendulum swings towards "upside" and away from "safe bet." A guy like Haggerty may have a lot of question marks, but so does everyone once you break out of the top handful of guys. With that in mind, lots of people would choose the upside guy over the steady, "boring" defenseman who is probably more likely to have a successful professional career.

Tommy Hughes is steady, but I am not seeing any one quality that leads him to the NHL. He may develop it, but nothing special yet. He's like Allen, but a little worse across the board, so not really there yet.

add St. Croix. I still believe. Seems like he had a decent 1st pro season, even if it was at the ECHL level. Hopefully he makes the needed summer adjustments and can raise his game to the next level (AHL i presume). He's only 21 and such a baby face still.
