HF Sabres Prospect Grades Given

http://www.hockeysfuture.com/teams/buffalo_sabres

Our defensive prospect pool looks incredible! Probably the best in Sabres history or no?

We are in dire need of some left wingers! Zemgus at 6.5B seems very low to me...

Also looks like they forgot to include Hurley. ^_^

Defensive cupboards are stocked well. Time to focus on offence next year. I'm fine with a well thought out 3-4 year plan if that is what is in the works.

I tend to disagree with the grades typically given to prospects and this year is no different.

Armia @ 7.0 seems incredibly low. He's also a 'B' in probability to succeed which seems high. Grigorenko only at a 7.5 seems low, too.

I would personally rank Armia an 8.0 C and Grigorenko 8.5 D. I would have to see how they rank other top prospects. Perhaps their ratings are just extremely tough...

Pysyk and Armia slightly under-rated. This is easily the best prospect pool we've had since I've been following the team.

These rankings are nothing more than something to talk about. The guys who make the grades are not watching the kids play.

Yeah, there's no way McNabb and McCabe should have higher grades than Pysyk and Armia. There's no way anyone that's watched them could think that the McDs ar better prospects. Girgensons at 6.5 and Girgs at 7.5 also seem off base to me. Grigs should be 8.0C or D, and Girgs should probably be a 7.0B.

Edit: Actually, I don't thin they've updated any of the existing grades at all, just added some of the 1st round picks from this year's draft class. Maybe they'll fix some of that when they do get around to updating their grades.

With how many European and soon to be college players, a lot of these guys will be labeled as prospects for a while and unless they show off in some international play, their projection won't change much based off how HF opereates.

The probability of success grades are brutal... Ristolainen is considered a very, very safe prospect and Zadorov is considered a pretty risky prospect yet somehow they're both 'C' in that category. You don't even really have to see either play to make that distinction. There are a number of other ones but I found those two to be pretty bad.

I think defense and center group is pretty stocked, scoring wings need help. We have grinding and checking wings, lack goal scorers.

I wonder if Darcy can turn a D into a wing, kind of like he did with Kassian to Hodgson.

Yeah, but I think he is like the 14th best prospect in the entire NHL according to them, even though his rating is lower than many behind him.

Sabres prospects are always lower than others.

Either that C letter grade for Pysyk is a mistake and should be a B or they gave Chad Ruhwedel's little brother a $10 Tim Horton's gift card to do these rankings. How in the hell are they rated the same? And this is coming from a big Ruhwedel fan.

Bad rankings imo, even Lagace got rated and he isn't even with the Sabres organization anymore

Yeah...It looks like they've added grades for some 2013 picks but nothing else. Every other (Sabres) players' rating is the same as it has been for months. I think more changes are to come. Or at least I hope.

Nelson and Catenacci have more talent than ZG?

These are preliminary, they could go up by mid season or the end of next season. I always take them with a grain of salt. They still list several guys that aren't even on the Sabres rosters in their system.
