2014 Prospect Ranking Poll #5

From the last poll:Ritchie takes #4 with around 35% of the vote, despite a late comeback by Andersen. Psst - Andersen is an option, folks.


Each poll be open for 48 hours. If it's not close after 24 hours, I'll call it. If it is, it'll go the full 48. In the event of a tie after 48 hours, a 24-hour runoff will be held. The winner will get the open spot; the loser will go back into the pool, not get the next-lowest rank. The poll will go up to #25. Players are in the poll on the basis of HF's prospect criteria. Essentially, skaters with less than 65 games before the season of their 24th birthday, or goalies with less than 45 games before the season of their 24th birthday, are considered prospects. There are some nuances with respect to older-signed players, but I believe that applies only to Farragher and Andersen, who can remain a prospect for a bit yet.

Vote on players using whatever criteria you like. This isn't the readiness poll or the talent poll or the most-likely-to-be-best poll per se, it's just a survey of who we as Duck fans like.


Prior years results (that I could find):
2004-05 Lockout II Edition
2010 Edition
2011 Edition
2012 Edition
2013 Lockout III Edition
(if anyone can find other years, let me know and I'll add them)

Why is Andersen an option? Shouldn't he have graduated?


I still have Kerdiles above Andersen, even though I probably shouldn't. I think Andersen's upside is "good starter." But how do you compare that to "good 2nd liner?"

But did Haller ever piss off Brett Hull by repeatedly checking him, or give Shane Doan a sneer of doom?

I dunno. I'd say a "good starter" has a much longer career arc than a good second liner. But good second liners are harder to come by these days.

Doesn't make sense to not vote for Freddie here even though he is by all intents and purposes our starter for the time being, which I'd call a graduate but whatever. Him and then Kerdiles.

Yup. Nice to see.

It's also interesting that this is the case even with the recent graduations: Lindholm, Etem, DSP, Silfverberg.

And Holland traded away. Looking at last year's poll, the top 13 all have a good chance of being good NHLers. I don't think we're that deep this year, but it's still close even without those guys.

Andersen is an option here. But by your negation of Andersen being an option despite he's on the list, you're actually voting that Andersen's talent doesn't exist. ha ha ha

Here's a good way to see it: If your best player on the ice is the "good starter" in net, then you can win more games than if your best player on the ice for all forwards is a "good 2nd liner".

Actually, this year in Norfolk provided a good example of having a "good starter" with a numerous amounts of "good 2nd/3rd liners".

Yeah. We get about 75 votes in a full 2 days, and Rakell could catch him, but he won't.
