Today starts my initial rankings of all 30 teams youth and
prospects. I have tried to build in anyone 22 years of age or
younger however it is possible that a couple slipped through the
cracks. Searching between Farm, Pro roster and prospect list is
hardly a rewarding task but I think I have done pretty good job of
filtering through all the rosters. I have tiered the team into
groups which I will then comment on. I tried to be consistent but
didnít always check the ages. In general I used 22 and under as
prospects that were considered. I had a bit of leeway for some
players particularly the guys in the crease. A few guys that have
graduated may have been missed on the list but for the most part I think
we have it sorted. One last disclaimer, if you are lower than you
think it isnít because I hate your team (Unless itís the Canucks, then
quite obviously your team and your fans are the worst at everything) I
will try to list a top 5 prospects for each team but there are some teams
that donít even have 5 worth counting so it I couldnít even put the
Canucks in the lowest tier which I was disappointed by.
Well this is the bottom of the barrel RSHL wise. Most of the teams
are in win now mode and have traded away a good chunk of the future to
compete right now. Three of these teams must be considered as
contenders for this years cup, so the window is open now. Teams like
Pittsburgh L.A. donít look like they have enough horses to get over the
hump this year and with very little coming behind the roster could be in
for a bit of an overhaul in the next couple of seasons. We will get
into the next Tier of teams next week. And this tier is where I can
finally throw some shade at the boys from Vancouver, stay tuned for that.
Rather have the roster of the panthers than be higher on the list.
Nothing wrong with "Here and NOW!!"
Good Read. :)
FYI What happened with the last 15 teams grades in day s of the entry draft.
I want to see what mine was going to say
It will get covered in this section once we move up the ladder a bit I am sure
Isles here...first off, great article. Second, a quick defense of my prospects/youth. It's true, the prospect cupboard is thin, but Nick Suzuki & Ryan McLeod are still only 22, half the pro roster is 27 or younger and another 13 on the farm roster is too. So, not a lot more coming, but also probably not a lot of openings in the next few years either. I know I'm not much of a writer, but thank you to those who are, it's a great addition to the site.
Prospect Pool ranking. No need to defend the list with your teams current pro roster guys.
Burkie is who you want commenting on pro rosters not me.
Great pro roster? How many cups do you have @Islanders?
Who said great?
Even if great was said about a roster. Past roster quality has no bearing on a current roster. But this what some of us have devolved to. No one can say or do anything without being shit on by others. I'm sorry you're such a sad sack that you can't feel good about yourself without putting down others...asshole
Whoa... We are a good group of guys here... Simmer down there big guy
Sad sack, no. Asshole, definitely! Didnít realize chirping someoneís fantasy hockey team for not winning a cup made me a sad sack Ö. Sorry to everyone who finds the ďhow many cups have you wonĒ offensive.
I haven't won any 😁
neither has most of the league though
Despite the comments, great article and cant wait for more!
