4.) Your team' 3rd best prospect.

how about your team's?
Flyers

1. I'd say Ragnarsson .. some would argue Pitkanen
2. Kapanen
3. Burke
4. Seidenberg (should be re-classified as a prospect), if not Niittymaki, then Ruzicka

I see our guys in this order
1) Eric D
2) KJ
3) Joni P.
4) Danny
5) Marcus Ragnarrsson
6) Mattias Timander
100th or 7th) Chris Therien

If Dennis is active by the playoffs, Therien moves down one.

- Ron Tugnutt. He gets trashed on alot, but he's played in a total of 5 games in a year span. He won't post .930 abd 2.00 numbers by playing once every 3 months. Amazing attitude and supurb team player, but has regressed quite a bit. Whether it's due to the lack of games or age.
Poor Tugger

As a Sens fan, I love Tugger and feel tied to him forever in that horrible moment on April 28, 1997 when Derek Plante's shot bounced off his glove and into the net in overtime of game 7 to deny the Sens their first ever series victory. *sigh*

Desjardins
KJ
Markov
Pitkanen/Ragnarsson
Ragnarsson/Pitkanen
Timander
Therien

When York come back from injury, the Preds look something like this...

1. Hamhuis/York - If Hamhuis continues to heat up, he might be our #3 for good here soon.
2. Arkhipov/Hall - Adam is in a similar situation to Hamhuis. He's been hot lately and is right up there with Arkhipov.
3. Chris Mason - everyone laughs but he has consistently outplayed Vokoun when given the chance.
4. Shishkanov - AHL rookie of the month.

Depending on the night, recently either Lydman or Reghyr. Could be Warriner, Gauthier or Leopold, though - the top 5 are pretty decent, really.
2.) The 8th best offensive forward on your team.
Matthew Lombardi - there's a precipitous drop-off after our #1 scorer, though.
3.) Your team's backup goalie.
If he clears waivers, Roman Tuek
4.) Your team' 3rd best prospect.
Tim Ramholt
1) I'd say Lydman I think, but it could go either way (Leopold, Warrener, Regehr, LYDMAN, Gauthier, Ference)
2) I agree, it would have to be Lombardi, though he is losing ice time the closer we get to the POs (Iginla, Conroy, Reinprecht, Saprykin, Donovan, McAmmond, Gelinas, LOMBARDI, Kobasew, Yelle, Clark, Nieminen)
3) If Turek is gone, Jamie McLennan who has been solid this year (Kiprusoff starts of course)
4) I agree with Ramholt (Phaneuf, Nystrom, RAMHOLT, Taratukhin, Krahn)

If I were to rank the Leafs forward in terms of offensive capability/potential and not necessarily on their production this year, I'd have Reichel as the 8th best offensive forward behind Sundin,Mogilny,Nolan,Roberts,Nieuwendyk,Tucker, and Antropov.
Actually I did include Mogilny in my analysis. I just put Reichel as the 7th (ahead of Antropov) and then Stajan and Antropov tied for 8th.

Technically Renberg also has the same number of points as well (24), and Ponikarovsky is only one less than that (23), but I figured that listing 4 players would be overkill so I just picked the two that I think currently have the best offensive instincts.
