Sens Prospects rated 3rd by Hockeys future

Great news for Sens fans!!!!

http://www.hockeysfuture.com/article...ing-2012-1-10/

3. Ottawa Senators

Strengths: The Senators have top-end skill at all forward positions led by Mika Zibanejad, Jakob Silfverberg, Stefan Noesen, and Shane Prince. Despite graduating five prospects and trading another key one this season, the team still has a group of players who can provide depth at the NHL level including Stephane Da Costa, Jim O'Brien, Andre Petersson, and Robin Lehner. Ottawa has a very young NHL team so the organization has the luxury of giving their future prospects more time to fully develop properly for the NHL.

Weaknesses: The organization has no goaltending prospects behind Robin Lehner at any level of hockey and needs to address this hole. The Senators have a lack of high-end talent on defense with the graduation of Jared Cowen and the trade of David Rundblad, but do have a good quantity with lower potential.

Top 5 Prospects: 1. Mika Zibanejad, C, 2. Robin Lehner, G, 3. Jakob Silfverberg, LW/RW, 4. Stefan Noesen, RW, 5. Mark Stone, RW.
Lost to Graduation: Bobby Butler, Erik Condra, Jared Cowen, Kasper Daugvins, Colin Greening.
Lost to Trade: David Rundblad.
Added: Cole Schneider.

In other news... Leafs are rated 18th

About what I expected... Incredible to still have a top-3 prospect pool after "losing" Cowen, Butler, Greening and Rundblad.

I liked the fact that they mentioned guys like Da Costa and Petersson other than the obvious Silfverberg, Noesen, Zibanejad, Stone and Prince. I also think Puempel gets overlooked (and not just in that article) too quickly. The guy could easily rebound after an injury/suspension bug season and be considered a top prospect once again...

And when they say :

Quote:
The organization has no goaltending prospects behind Robin Lehner at any level of hockey and needs to address this hole
This hole has been more than filled with the addition of Ben Bishop

Anderson : 31 y/o (just turned 31 a week ago)
Bishop : 25 y/o
Lehner : 20 y/o

Looks good, at least better than ever in Ottawa regarding goaltending

Let's just add a boom or bust goalie with a late round pick that we can take a lot of time to develop.


Finally, the lack of high end D-man talent will likely be adressed in a few weeks with the 15th overall pick (or better, knowing Murray) in a draft filled with great D-men prospects

Future is bright and has been since the 2008 draft

I'm actually surprised, I figured we'd dip quite a bit with Cowen graduating and Rundblad being traded away. Guess Silfv and Stone have had good enough seasons to keep us up there.

Ya no one was expecting Stone and Silf to rise to top prospect status. Ultimately we got two guys that may be better in the long run than the guy we took 6th overall last year.

We'll still be top 5.

Zibanejad, Lehner, Noesen, Puempel, 1st rounder, Prince, Stone.

Silfv, Boro graduating.

Heck, I think we can be second if those guys continue their development.

Would rather be ranked 30th after whoever graduates with the 30th overall pick that year

IMO, since 2008, we stockpiled first round worthy prospects like candy...

Karlsson : well the guy is top-3 worthy, maybe even 1st overall worthy
Petersson : still 1st round worthy IMO, it's great to get a prospect like that in the 4th round
Wiercioch : looked like he was in the first two years, but is a bit of a question mark now
Cowen : top-10 pick and looks to be totally worth it
Silfverberg : top-15 pick worthy easily
Lehner : huge potential, I would have spent a 15th + pick on him without a doubt
Stone : another guy who had his breakout (and a big one) after being drafted
Zibanejad : picked 6th overall for a reason
Noesen : we were shocked at first to see him drafted in the 1st round but now we see
Puempel : let's not give up too quickly on this guy, goal scoring ability is there
Prince : still not sure why this guy wasn't a 1st round pick
Butler : really tough sophomore season but showed a lot of promise in his first 30 games (maybe more early 2nd round worthy)
Da Costa : worthy of a 1st round pick IMO. World class vision and skills


I wouldn't have been mad with any of those guys if we somehow picked them somewhere in the first round. In summary, I feel like we got 12 first round picks in the last 4 years/drafts. Awesome

I love the fact that despite Edmonton picking the first overall pick three years in a row, in addition to the benefit of picking first for each following round, the Senators are still considered higher ranked in prospect potential.

Well done Murray!

Only one of their first overall picks was included in the rankings. Hall and Ebs are both graduated and Yakupov isn't Oilers property yet.

This is an total fail as an argument. Sit back and think a bit, you will figure it out.

Great news again for the future of this club. Hopefully they can stay the course and not be overly anxious to try to "cash in" on their youthful depth.

what do they mean by this: "They have the luxury of again having the first overall pick at the draft this summer so another jewel will be added to the system to replace Nugent-Hopkins once he graduates." How has he not "graduated" yet?

Because of injuries. Because the Oilers played a kid who wasn't ready physically for the NHL. Because the Oilers.

The thing that makes me laugh / be sad about them is that I don't think Hall or RNH are going to live up to their potential. The Oilers don't just draft poorly, they also develop poorly. The kid line was boys playing against men. Injuries inevitable.
