Round 2: "Best NA Pro Prospect" - 29. Zack Kassian vs. 40. Louis Leblanc

On to Round 2...

QUALIFICATIONS: Minimum of 50 AHL + NHL games played (20 AHL + NHL games played for Gs); Maximum of 100 NHL games played (30 NHL games played for Gs); 26 years old or younger by 12/31/12; Signed to play in North America next season; Can't have played more than 50 NHL games in 11/12 NHL season, injured players exempt (ie. Mike Sauer, Jacob Josefson, etc.)

Disclaimer: This is based on my own subjective rankings. So if you don't like them, too bad - the best will win in the end. If I overlooked someone: too late the bracket is already made. Made a total list of ~200 but pared it down to 128.

Similar skill levels, but Kassian's physicality gives him the edge.

Kassian for me easily. Don't see much upside in LeBlanc as I do in Kassian. Ryane Clowe 2.0.

Offensive upside? Leblanc has 10 points in 42 nhl games, while Kassian had 10 points in 44 nhl games.

Voted Kassian, but Leblanc could turn out to be better.

Yup. Kassian also had significantly better AHL numbers and was put in a 4th line role/healthy scratch with the Canucks/Sabres.
