Ross. Ross>Percy but I guess one was a 1st rounder and another was a 2nd rounder.

Narrowed it down to D'Amigo, Finn, Ross, Holzer, Ashton.

Not sure who to pick but going towards Ashton.

I'm pretty sure it was said that Matt Finn is a better prospect than Stuart Percy by scouts lol, very comparable

This one should be Matt Finn for sure. Then it gets interesting after that.

And just to be nitpicky, Richard Greenop is no longer a Leafs prospect. He's a UFA and his future in pro hockey is sketchy at best.

Jamie Devane should be on the main list. One of our more underrated prospects.

When I see these rankings, I realize how deep our prospect pool actually is. We may not have that many blue chippers, but when one of Finn/Ross/Ashton isn't good enough to crack the top 10, that says a lot. Ashton was arguably Tampa's 2nd best prospect behind Connolly when traded, and easily a top 5 for them.

I was just about to say this

Hopefully we get a good rate of them being successful!

I'm having a hard time trying to get a read on Deschamps.

He was a real difference maker in the AHL as a 22 year old! I mean, he's only a year older than Blacker/Ashton/Kadri/D'Amigo, two years younger than Holzer, just a few years older than Ross/McKegg, a year younger than Mueller, and the same age as Colborne.

Don't know if he's one of our better prospects or just middle of the pack.

Quality>Quantity considering the lack of difference makers on the current roster.

IMO, it should have been Holzer a couple rounds ago. As far as likelihood to make an impact in the NHL this year, I'd put him up there in the rotating 6-7 dman spot. Some of these kids are so far off or we know so little about them that I can't be rating them above a guy that seems capable and probable of helping the big club this year.

Patience.

How are you so sure that Biggs won't become a top PWF, or that Percy won't be a great top pairing, or that Reilly won't be Karlsson 2.0, or that Kadri won't become an impact player, or that Ross doesn't become an Ott? I could go on and on, but you get what I'm saying.

Guys like Gunnarsson and Reimer are just getting into the lineup now and are starting to become impact players drafted by the organization.

Predicting how prospects develop isn't a science. It's near impossible to predict how some kids will translate their skills to the pros.

On their boards, he's ranked at #4. Pretty exciting for sure. I wonder how different we'd be ranking him if he had just gone to the Marlies without seeing any games with the Leafs last year.

People are under-rating Ashton even more.. Wow.. Just because people seen a short glimpse of him at the end of the year.. Everyone knew he wasn't ready for the big leagues.. Don't mean the potential isn't there folks.

People need to stop looking at the stats.. Ross is a grinder in the NHL. His offensive game isn't THAT good. Sure he's done it in Junior, but a lot of people have too.. Ashton has top 6 potential, and I'd say Ross is more of a bottom-6..

If you think Ross' potential is a grinder and a bottom two line guy what makes you think Ashton's potential is a top two line player? Ross has produced more in the WHL and is the more skilled player of the two, and plays just as gritty a game if not more so. I think both have top two line potential, but think both will become really great third line guys in the end.

This was a much tougher choice, and for me it boiled down to Ross or Finn.

Ultimately, I chose Finn. He had a higher potential draft ranking than Ross.

Ross is still a project player, probably needs more fine tuning than Finn.

Tough choice between Finn and Ross. I'd say both have similar likeliness to play in the NHL, but if Ross reaches his maximum potential, he could be a huge impact player. Definitely someone that nobody would want to play against.
