NHL Lockout = Clogged Prospects

What I am getting at is the fact that the lockout will prevent many prospects form graduating (HF definition). The result will be a double cohort of talent.

This will make year to year comparisons difficult. For example, next falls to 50 will include this seasons top 50, plus the impressive draft crop of 2013.

Making the top 50 next fall will be a major accomplishment for any prospect.

Has HF given any thought to addressing this unusual situation?

Why does it need to be addressed? They're still prospects.

If anything; it's a good thing. Too many teams rush players in times of desperation. Perhaps this will give players more time to develop more properly.

Many people believe that the 03 draft being so great had something to do with the fact that many players who would have been in the NHL went and played junior for another year.

Not sure if it actually had a large impact, but who knows.

Its true. When you look to season 2005/2006, there was a big group of prospects, they all made an impact to his teams.

As I suggested, it makes year to year comparisons difficult. You could as 'who gives a crap' which I would respond with : I do

I like to compare the evaluations of prospects between organizations and between years. I think that it improves my understanding of the quality of a prospect, and it helps me identify which sources are better.

For example I am watching to see if Pronman's method of evaluation (weighted heavily on puck possession) is superior.

I can also spot players that are trending good or bad as well. (Filatov is an example. He followed the classic trend of a bust).

Since HF is a great source of material, I was simply curious if they had had any internal discussions based around what they might do.

Doing absolutely nothing is likely the best choice, but they might come up with something else.
