Not that I agree with it by any stretch of the imagination, but I'd suppose it might be because Tangradi's inability to score at the NHL level is quite a bit more visible to the average fan than Kuhnhackl's struggles to score in the OHL last year.

No. They both had somewhat "off" years, and even moreso for Kuhn, although I feel his coaches, the suspension & injury were part of that. Both remain good prospects and could still become great, but neither had the kind of years where they solidified themselves as blue-chippers. Given Tangradi performed reasonably and has improved every season at the AHL level, I think that's why he's clearly ahead right now.

As someone who voted for Kuhnhackl, let me explain ...


I misread his 2010-11 stats (39 goals in 63 games) as being his 2011-12 stats.


Seriously. This avatar isn't just for show.


I'd like to rescind my votes in these past two rounds. Oh, and someone really needs to update his Wikipedia page.

I wouldn't trust Wikipedia pages for any players who are not very well known or high profile prospects. Odds are a lot of the lesser known guys do not have updated information / totally accurate information in their profile, most of the time.

I know, I know. It was one of those cases where as I was about to vote, I said to myself, "Self, I wonder what Kuhnhackl's numbers were last year." And then I screwed things up further by not bothering to check the years.

Rusty! The only Rusty we could've used this summer is Rusty from PHX, along with that Vermette character. But I digress.
