Thanks David! Great article. The order can be debated (as any list can) but I like what you did. One small nit-pick ... Clifford was a second round pick.

Also you said that Teubert was sent to Reading of the ECHL while he was actually sent to Ontario.

Marvelous job David.

I found an error at the Kyle Clifford-> in the text you refer him being drafted in the 3rd round but he was drafted in the 2nd round.
----------------------------------------------

One thing has to be said after I saw the list. Strong work ethic, leadership quality or competitiveness. Those three things are a good reason to look at the Kings future without the fear of prospects becoming the next Pushkarev.

Dang it! That's why you never write an article in the middle of a bout with insomnia.

I'll fix 'em when I get home today.

Appreciate Your Efforts...

Thanks David enjoyed the read, and the list! Was alot of fun and agree with nearly everything you have to say...
The only one I see we disagree on is Davis Drewiske, in that I hope he can still improve in his offensive abilities.

He is just in his prime as a young defenseman and I hope he surprises you and many others. I liked what he showed last season,
and I think he has some potential on the PP not just as a defensive specialist. His effort to improve an work on his skills will be the ultimate prove all in this regard.

David, great work bud! While I understand the logic, I am still disappointed that Kozun didn't even get an honorable mention. He was a huge stand-out at the prospects camp this year. Much like Loktionov was last year, and Simmonds was the year before.

ditto. Drewiske has some offensive skills I think, but is really just solely focused on defense. I agree that he wouldn't look out of place on the PP.

Great article, good read! Surprised not to see Kozun. Was he was 21st? Real solid prospect list. Way to go scouting! Agree 95% percent on ur list! Switch Loktionov and purcell and I'm sold.

it is interesting that the who the hell pick of the draft at #4 has become our #1 prospect.

Not sure if that is good or bad yet.

Other than not having Drewiske in the top ten, a solid list. I also think Kozun deserves just as much a shot in the top twenty as many of those lessor talented players listed. He is not in the Team Canada camp with Jones, Schenn and Teubert for nothing. For the first time that I can remember, the top nine (plus Drewiske) I think we can say most likely have some future in the NHL, and we can say that without kidding ourselves or being total homers. Time will tell.

I think the list is close to being right but it is odd that our #7 man in Purcell is going to be the only player on the NHL squad this year as Moller will probably take a year in Manchester to develop his high skill level.
I hope they do this as Moller I fear won't reach his talent level if he makes the big squad this year. I stand to be corrected but it will be interesting to see how it plays out.

Robbie Czarnik should rapidly climb that list. I also think Bud Holloway turns things around this year too. Great work!

I agree on Czarnik, he needs to be in the top 20.

The rankings are based on potential, not necessarily on how close they are to the NHL.

I don't understand why people are so high on Drewiske, he's a solid stay at home defensemen but lets not get carried away now.

Unless I missed something, Juraj Mikus should be a forward and not a defenseman correct?

Because he showed (albeit a brief stint) that he belongs in the NHL. Smart passes, decent size, decent shot. Potential long term solid 4-6 defensemen in the league, and those don't grow on trees. He is a thousand times better than Harrold on the blue line. Yes, I said a thousand times!

Re Kozun, he doesn't even crack the top 20, yet Loktionov is #8? I guess that's a good problem to have. As 19 year olds this past season, Kozun scored 1.5 points per game, Loktionov scored 1.29 points per game. Kozun is faster and quicker, yes NHL size is a factor for both (more so for Kozun), but neither player is large in stature. Loki is a 5th rounder, Kozun a 6th....is the gap between the potential that big? It has to be his height, but tell that to Marcel Dionne.

There are two of them. Our guy is a forward. The links are messed up on our HF top twenty page. When you click on his name on the two lists, one of the links takes you to the Toronto defensemen, the other takes you to our forward.
