I'm really opposed to us ranking the lower drafted prospects above the higher drafted ones before they played a game post-draft. It's ridiculous. I remember a couple of years ago McColgan was almost ranked above St. Croix because many felt they know better than Gorton and Clark. Fast forward two years and St. Croix is a very good prospect, while McColgan will be toiling away in the ECHL.

I have to admit, I thought McColgan could have been a decent player but never thought he was as good as St. Croix. You make a great point here.

Who knows? It's stupid. I never understood how anyone could automatically decide that a specific prospect is better without a year or so to let them develop.

Meh.

Until they get to the AHL (Or a pro league in Europe), it is really tough. Not even tough leagues like the WHL and NCAA are fully indicative of pro potential.

I don't get it either. Some started voting for him 5 rounds ago.

Probably because he scored a few goals during the prospect camp...
