Top 20 Flyers Prospect Rankings (#3)

I figured this is a pretty big dead period in the NHL, let's get some type of discussion up. Personally, I don't think any of us consider Giroux(44 games) or Parent(54 games) prospects anymore, they've more than established themselves as NHL players. Neither were invited to prospect camp, and HF is basically the only place where they still count as prospects. Please also post who you would like added to the poll. I didn't add Ross because he's 26, and I don't see him being a prospect.

1. LW James vanRiemsdyk (#2 overall, 2007)
2. D Kevin Marshall (#41 overall, 2007)

Big wingers who can score never go out of style.

I voted Nodl. Depending on how the lines are split up whether Stevens keeps out top 6 on the top 2 lines or split them up over 3, Nodl may get the chance to taste second or first line minutes.

He played 38 games on a pretty stacked offensive team, and with the loss of two 25+ goal scorers I think he has a good chance of playing a decent chunk of this season.

Whether or not he becomes productive with more NHL games under his belt is another story though.

Bodrov for me.

Maroon has one good year, Nodl couldn't play in the NHL last year, and while Bourdon seems great, I still wonder why all 30 teams passed on him twice before he was taken.

Bodrov has had 2 seasons at a high level in the 2nd best league in the world. Obviously you have to factor in that he might not come over, but he's still my choice for the moment.

in my head was jvr nodl marshall maroon bodrov bourdon. with the main list putting marshall 2nd i bumped nodl out of the top 5. something tells me once these top few guys develop there isnt much else coming for a while unless one of the goalies surprises people.

i definitely think you should put bearclaw out there to be ranked. Oliver lauridsen.

I voted Maroon. He's gotten consistently better since getting drafted and has really improved his skating and conditioning. If he comes to camp in top shape, he might just take Knuble's place in the line up. He's got size and more important, he's got great hands. It was a definite toss up between Maroon and Oskars Bartulis, who along with Kevin Marshall, is probably the most ready defenseman to crack the roster.

I went with Bourdon, because of his upside. If he ends up like a smaller Sheldon Souray, we've got a gem.

I don't think it's fair to write Maroon off as one good year-- he's grown tremendously as a player and person each year he's played, and he's already shaken off a few negative labels. He notched 54 points in his first season in the A on a mediocre team, and is just 21 (his birthday was the end of April). With the way he's risen, I think, and I feel one could argue as well, that he'll continue his nearly seamless adjustments. Those savvy-type players who do at least one thing more than think can be pretty valuable, and that's him.

Still voting for Nodl because I think he has a chance with the big club, and if not, would make some good trade bait.

MAB, I think the guy is going to be a beast. It was between him and Nodl.

I thought it should go JVR, Marshal, Boudon, Nodl, Maroon, as a top 5.

Maroon add Ross.

I really like Maroon. He's got a lot of talent and skating/conditioning was all that was holding him back. He seems like he's really committed and keeps making strides year to year. It was between him and MAB for me.

Ross isn't a prospect. He's two years older than Richards and Carter are.

I'm sad that these are the choices for our #3 prospect . I have to remember all of the young guys that are already on the squad and here for a long time .

For a scoring winger, Nodl hasn't shown a scoring touch, even for the Phantoms. I'd like to say Bodrov because of how the Flyers talk about him, but I have never seen him play. Going with MAB over Maroon I guess.

So age is an absolute requirement to be a prospect? Because I would think if you are in the organization and not a shoe in for the NHL, then you're a prospect.

Assuming of course Ross re-signs, as he is RFA.

I thought that I was the only person that noticed that. I mean 4 points in 38 games in the NHL with a -15 isn't really all that promising when you see that he only scored 20 points in 40 AHL games. He is only 22 though so he'll still improve, just not sure if he'll ever be more than a good 3rd liner.

I voted Nodl, he has great skating ability and for a young player is capable defensively. I see him a lot like Kapanen.

I've soured on Nodl. I had decent expectations for him but in his limited time as a call up this year he was really unimpressive. He wasn't bad...he just wasn't good either.

Way too early IMO, he seemed to be decent defensively in the AHL, give him some time...
