The Hockey News "Future Watch" 2011

2010 - http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=716924

2009 - http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=591712

2008 - http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=474062

It's getting to be that time of year again. We're approximately 2 months from the magazine getting shipped out to subscribers, so I'd imagine they will start working on it soon. They do the majority of the write-ups immediately after the WJC.

Remember, age doesn't matter when it comes to Future Watch. As long as the player isn't considered an NHL regular at the time of printing, they're considered a prospect for FW. This is why sometimes you'll see a player who is 24yo or 25yo on a teams list.

Anyone want to take a stab at the top 5 this year? Top 5 for your team?

Montreal could look something like this:

1. Louis Leblanc
2. Danny Kristo
3. Jarred Tinordi
4. Alexander Avtsin (maybe too high for him right now, but I really like his upside and the org is high on him)
5. Aaron Palushaj

Subban, Eller, Pacioretty, Weber all currently in the NHL.

edit: Jason Kay from THN just informed me that the on sale date for Future Watch this year is March 14th (about a week later than usual). Subscribers will receive it about a week earlier.

I knew this thread had to be coming. The Caps are going to have almost a complete overhaul atop their prospect rankings, with each of the Capitals' top 5 prospects from last year's edition (Carlson, Alzner, Neuvirth, Johansson, and Perreault) currently in the everyday line-up.

An attempt at 2011, counting Carlson, Alzner, Varlamov, Neuvirth, and Johansson as graduates:

1. Evgeny Kuznetsov, F (1st/2010)
2. Braden Holtby, G (3rd/2008)
3. Cody Eakin, F (3rd/2009)
4. Dmitri Orlov, D (2nd/2009)
5. Mathieu Perreault, F (6th/2006)

HM: Stanislav Galiev, F (3rd/2010), Andrew Gordon, F (7th/2004), and Patrick Wey, D (4th/2009)

It's looking like Washington's going to go from having ridiculous prospect depth by HF standards to just about average in one year. Looking at the Caps' top-20 according to HF, there's a good chance that only 8 (Kuznetsov, Holtby, Eakin, Orlov, Wey, Galiev, Grubauer, and Kugryshev) will maintain their "prospect" status by the beginning of next season.

3. Mats Zuccarello, LW/RW, Connecticut AHL
4. Dylan McIlrath, D, Moose Jaw WHL

Wow, it's tough to prognosticate with all of our last four first rounders in the NHL as regulars.

1) Jeff Petry
2) Anton Lander
3) Martin Marincin
4) Tyler Pitlick
5) Curtis Hamilton

I would rank the Flames:
1. Tim Erixon
2. TJ Brodie
3. Greg Nemisz
4. Leland Irving
5. Ryan Howse

I think we'll see
1. Tim Erixon
2. Greg Nemisz
3. Mitch Wahl
4. TJ Brodie
5. Leland Irving.

Pulkkinen ahead of Sheahan and Jarnkrok, I haven't been following Red Wings prospects this year but, I couldn't imagine Pulkkinen leaping over both.

For the Leafs.

Kadri
Aulie
Rynnas
Caputi
D'Amigo

Holzer and Blacker are two HM. Mckegg and Ross will be in the top 5 for the buds next year.

Kadri shouldn't count since he's been with Leafs longer than the Marlies.

1- Zack Kassian
2- Luke Adam
3- Marcus Foligno
4- Mark Pysyk
5- Brayden McNabb

HM: Brennan, Crawford and Lagace

its close between adam/ kassian and pysyk/foligno. I give kassian the nod because of upside and junior numbers and foligno the nod or making the WJC team.

Don't forget Goalie Jhonas Enroth. He should make the jump by the end of this season. Foligno, Kassian and Adam would make one hell of a line! Old time Sabres hockey.
