Not many Bruins in HF Top 100 Prospects

Fox Sports published the HF Top 100 prospect List. Each player is described in a paragraph. There are a few Bruins prospects...
http://www.foxsports.com/content/view?contentId=1790038

Huml, Toivonen and Raycroft are listed.

When Huml was a teen, he played on a line with Tomas Plekanec, a Montreal prospect who plays for the Hamilton Bulldogs. (Here's his website: http://www.plekanec.cz/zivot02_eng.htm) It's too bad we couldn't lend them Ivan for awhile to see if he could get his game clicking...or, maybe 'borrow' Plekanec from Montreal?

I saw that...what, weren't the Bruins players listed somewhere from 65-100 too? Not only that, but Huml was the top ranked guy, Toivonen was before Razor, and there was no mention of Bergeron or Zinovjev. I noticed the same with some other teams...which to me detracts a bit from the list's overall credibility.

100 prospects, 30 teams ... seems to me that 3 should be about average.

Well take out the Rangers because their prospect cupboard is bare. I am sure there are a couple other teams like that as well....St Louis?

In the end it all doesnt matter what this list says, so who cares?

Agreed some teams will have one or none, and then a few teams will be loaded with 5 or 6. All evens out in the end.

Also on a top 100 list, there are very few players that could be considered "sure things"

I agree but I think it's which 3 that is being argued.

BTW, Taffe is #48.

Well I just took a look at the list, and just a brief glance over made me feel embarrassed for the people who created it.

It is a list of the top 100 prospects, but what it *should* say is that it is listed in no particular order.
