Default Calgarypuck Prospect Ranking 2020 - The Voting List

Just kicking off our 2020 Calgarypuck Prospect Ranking at a very odd time of year.

This is year eight, with the first year graduating Sean Monahan as the #1 prospect.

Below are the players that I think should be available for voting, but I'd rather find out if I've missed someone, or should omit someone before we get going.

In the System

Code:
Player	Age
Zagidulin, Artyom	25
Philp, Luke	24
Kirkland, Justin	24
Yelesin, Alexander	24
Mackey, Connor	24
Poolman, Colton	24
Gawdin, Glenn	23
Lerby, Carl-Johan	23
Kinnvall, Johannes	23
Parsons, Tyler	23
Tuulola, Eetu	22
Phillips, Matthew	22
Valimaki, Jusso	22
Ruzicka, Adam	21
Emilio Pettersen, Mathias	20
Pospisil, Martin	20
Zavgorodny, Dmitri	20
Pelletier, Jakob	19
Wolf, Dustin	19
Notes: I've included Valimaki due to his lack of games played. With injuries he's only played 24 games and he's 22. That's still a prospect in my mind.

Reserve List

Code:
Player 	Age
Foo, Spencer	26
Rafikov, Rushan	25
Karnaukhov, Pavel	23
Mattson, Mitchell	22
Sveningsson, Filip	21
Koumontzis, Demetrios	20
Solovyov, Ilya	20
Chechelev, Daniil	19
Feuk, Lucas	19
Nikolayev, Ilya	19
Nodler, Josh	19
Zary, Connor	19
Boltmann, Jake	18
Francis, Ryan	18
Kerins, Rory	18
Kuznetsov, Yan	18
Poirier, Jérémie	18
Notes: All the new picks included. I struck Foo for age. Could make a case for nuking Rafikov and Karnaukhov as well.

Rafikov, Rushan

Mattson, Mitchell
Sveningsson, Filip

I have zero expectations for any of these guys. I can see why you’d keep the bottom 2 on the list but the top 2 will never come over to NA IMO.

Say keep sveningsson, realistically if he were good enough he would come and play. As for the two russians there is no point, as they wont be bothered ever entering the Flames development system. Mattson is so bad it's hardly worth ranking him, but someone has to be last.

Until we hear something from at least another resource or someone more substantial I would leave him off. Even if he does eventually come over he would represent something more like a European free agent signing than a prospect.

Yeah I vote the Russians off the island until we hear something a little more credible about their interest in coming over.

They probably get voted in so low anyway based on a lot of us not knowing much about them or how they've played lately, so to me doesn't matter much if they make it into the voting or not

Rafikov for sure. Karnaukov seems unlikely but the fact that he has played several years of hockey in North America, in Calgary no less, I would leave him on

Russians should be in, Foo should be off. Rafikov’s contract is up this year, and could definitely fit on the third pair next year if he was at all interested in coming over. He’d certainly make more playing here than in Russia, so I see it as likely unless the D group stays as deep as it is.

Foo is a UFA after his KHL contract is up so even if he comes back to NA he won’t be Flames property.

I would keep the Russians in. They are officially prospects.

This was good, but "erankulation" would have finished it nicer.

I don't see why we don't have all the Russians on the list. Maybe they come over, maybe they don't - but they are still Flames' assets, no? I would keep them on the list if for no other reason than to get a grasp at what their value is just in case another team decides to make a swap with Calgary at some point.

I take it the recent drafts picks aren’t in - or if they sign a contract are they.

The 2020 draft class would be included for sure.

Filip Sveningsson needs to sign by Jun 1st 2021
Mitchell Mattson needs to sign by Aug 15th 2022

^ They should remain prospects until we lose their rights

Pavel Karnaukhov is 23 years old
Rushan Rafikov is 25 years old

I wouldn't count out the last two just yet, we do have six other Russians in the system which may entice others to come over, Artyom Zagidulin is 25, Alexander Yelesin is 24, Ilya Solovyov is 20, Ilya Nikolayev is 19, Daniil Chechelev is 19 and Yan Kuznetsov is 18.
