ESPN's NHL Team-Prospect Rankings...more bad news

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

i guess i can understand the ranking dropping if you take out smith and nyquist. they were indeed 2 of our best prospects. its not to say our cupboard is bare, but we have to remember that all teams have guys they are excited about. and unfortunately, outside of lottery players, you cant get truly excited about a player till he is at least in the ahl and playing well. fans too often cite numbers from juniors as some garuntee players will make it.

It's ESPN. The Wings have one of the strongest groups of forward prospects in the league.

So hopefully Holland and the boys draft 7 Dmen this coming draft to help with McKee from this draft. Aside from potentially Smith, Sproul, Lashoff, McKee, Backman, maybe Almqvist, i'm not sure of how many dmen we have that will pan out. Yes, our forwards look good though.

What do you guys think about anyone of our D prospects become top-4? I can see a lot of our F with sure potential to be top-6 but as for D, I can't figure out who's got the shot...

I'd say after the obvious one in Smith, the only other defenceman that should be a top 4 guy is Sproul. I didn't count any of this years draft picks since the defenceman we picked are completely unknown to me.

XO is better than Sproul. XO will also most likely be on team Canada come the WJHC this winter as well.

We have a handful of great offense defensmen and a handful of good defensive defensmen as well.
