Horrible order in ranking. Someone is just looking at some stats and message board garbage.

I know its easy to get excited about prospects but, damn I feel like we are stacked! Great seasons by Griffith and Camara in Juniors. Both top goalie prospects are well on the right track. And we just got a solid bunch of guys from Dallas. I hope Fraser gets a chance to show his stuff on our 3rd line wing, seems like a perfect fit. Stacked for the current and looks like the future too!

I don't think it's too far fetched. I was watching the Knights specifically for Jared Knight a couple years back, an Griffith was always a standout.

What do you think the chances of Spooner making the third line center next season? I cant wait to see him in Boston full time

Kelly and Soderberg are ahead of him. His best shot would be playing wing. If one of our Centers go down to injury he'll hopefully be the first in line to get called up.

Don't know why they included Caron, but not Bartkowski and Krug. Heck, you could even put Soderberg on that list.

That's what I was thinking as well. I'm really intrigued with Fraser, He sounds like a future power forward and if Morrow pans out, this could be right up there with the Espo and Neely thefts as I'm willing to bet Eriksson out performs Seguin for the next 5-6 yrs.

Subban
Spooner
Morrow
Knight
Smith

Svedberg
Camara
Ferlin
Khokhlachev
O'Gara/Warsosky

Forget Caron they have a book on him and July 4th he became expendable; he'll be in every preseason game hoping someone likes and they can get some type of salvage on him

Koko is dead prospect skating IMO- traded twice the look of someone who'd rather be someplace else- my guess was in that rumored draft day mega deal with Calgary if Lindholm was there and Feaster pulled the trigger. I'll be very interested to see if he is at camp and what they do with him. I have never watched a player look so lost playing a different forward position as Koko in Manchester.

I know Knight was hurt. I'm not saying he's bad. I'm saying I like Griffiths game too. It's not that far fetched to have him above an oft injured Knight at this point.

Knights injuries are why he's so low on the list. I don't doubt you or Knight DKH, but for now I'd put him #3 behind Spooner and Koko for forwards.

I hope he does make the team in three months better him than Caron.


Bummed out to hear about Koko, hopefully Chia can get him back on track.

He also posted some solid stats in other categories. He posted a +26 rating in his junior year, which ranked third in the country, and led the team and the CCHA in plus/minus with a +27 rating in his sophomore year. Similarly, he was the best player on Dallas with more than 20 games played in Corsi On statistics. I haven't seen alot of him but another site stated "A few breakaways scattered here and there, some shots off the post and getting jerked around a bit from line to line robbed Smith of what could have been a much more prolific NHL rookie season"

Great post - the more folks I have talked to who watched him have very positive comments. Lot of Reilly Smith 'your really going to like him'

Just want to make a couple comments on Seth Griffith ..he played injured then rested it, then after coming back they almost never put him back on the line he had chemistry with ..This is why he slipped near the end of the year IMO

Wait until Kirk's list comes out on NEHJ (hopefully tomorrow)

Then we can have a realistic debate
