Pysyk and Armia slightly under-rated. This is easily the best prospect pool we've had since I've been following the team.
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.
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.
Guys----dont think this is anywhere near up to date....even the rankings by team doesnt reflect the draft.
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.
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.
