Default Athletic Prospect rankings

They are re-freshing their prospect rankings and so far are up to #21 (Reverse orders) who are the Oilers.
The Flames have yet to appear.
I suppose one advantage of not giving prospects a chance is that it helps your prospect rating.

Will post when the Flames show-up.

compared to our off-season ranking

1. Wolf, Dustin (+1)
2. Pelletier, Jakob (+1)
3. Coronato, Matthew (-2)
4. Zary, Connor (-)
5. Ruzicka, Adam (Graduated)
6. Valimaki, Juuso (Traded)
7. Kerins, Rory (11 on Athletic list)
8. Mackey, Connor (Graduated)
9. Poirier, Jeremie (-4)
10. Schwindt, Cole (-2)
11. Philips (not counted as a prospect by Athletic)
12. Beck
13. Kuznetzov
14. Ronni

So the big risers are Poirier and Sergeyev who was 18 on our list. Pettersson too who was 19 on our list.

Quite surprised they have MEP at 10. He has had a nice year numbers wise but he is not an NHL prospect.

Curious why you say this. He's been excellent of late and isn't that small. Could see him latching on somewhere.

He’s had an amazing year. Last I saw he lead the Wranglers in +/- and was up there in even strength points. I think he could be a solid 3rd liner in the NHL.

Well first of all, what do I know? I'm no expert.

But I have seen him play live several times through his career though admittedly not this year. At the end of last year, I would have predicted this would be his last year with the organization but he certainly started the year off strong, he deserves credit. Cooled off lately it seems. But I don't think he becomes an NHLer:

- he is a smaller player. That is a factor not just with Sutter.
- he's never going to make it based on his defensive game and motor. This is not Blake Coleman or Mangiapane. AndI just don't think he's anywhere close to elite enough enough offensively to get a look
- he'll be 23 this year

Seems like the kind of guy who can have a nice career playing a level or two below the NHL. Not like the Athletic has him ranked that high, I just think you have more prospects who are bigger unknowns at this point that "could" turn into something. So I think around 15th is maybe what he should be.

The Flames have just been so healthy that you don't see the occasional callups for guys like him. So barring injury, he is down the list.

But he clearly took a step, hope he continues and makes it.
