Prospect Criteria for the purposes of this poll mimics the ‘Hockey’s Future’ Prospect Criteria: If a prospect is a skater (forward, defenseman) and has played in 65 NHL games or more before the completion of the season of his 24th birthday; or, if a goaltender has played in 45 NHL games before the completion of the season of his 24th birthday, that player will be considered graduated to the NHL. Conversely, if a player completes the season of his 24th birthday without passing those milestones, then that player will no longer be considered a prospect by Hockey’s Future, regardless of the player’s status with his NHL club.
My goal is to have these polls run for 48 hours each and to extend through the top 25 prospects as per hfboards.
Why? Swedish players doesn't like Russia. I'm sure that he'll leave ASAP if he is getting an one way deal in the NHL.
If he didn't get a one-way deal this year, what makes you think he will get one a year from now when Nelson and strome have spots and kabamov, sundstrom, lee, persson all have another ahl year under their belts.
