Default Summer 2015 Prospect Ranking - Round 32

it's time.

Calgarypuck's 3rd annual Prospect Ranking Poll!

Going with the 25 and under with 65 or less games played at the NHL level which actually works pretty closely with my own rule of thumb of "anyone not too old that hasn't been penciled in".

Therefore Granlund, Ortio and Ferland are still prospects.

Monahan and Gaudreau are young but clearly established and no longer prospects. Bennett may be penciled in but he's only played 12 NHL games and is a prospect.

I'm sticking with Wolf until he's no longer Flames property. Brings a dimension that says he's not done yet in Calgary potentially.

Going with Grant just because he's played at the NHL level (I guess so has Wolf and Billins though).

I love Wolf's game. But the fact that he went home after one season speaks volumes.

Grant has played NHL games, the others have not.

I don't consider Wolf or Billins prospects anymore.

Neither Billins nor Wolf fit the 'prospect' criteria laid out in the OP. Both are 26 years old (Wolf will be 26 well before game 1 of 2015/16 season).

I don't get the 'has played NHL games' argument.

This is a prospect vote. I don't care if they've played NHL games in the past, I care if they are going to play NHL games in the future.

I agree with you for the most part... but in rounds 30-35, NHLGP starts to matter. The fact that a prospect was considered NHL capable at one point, definitely should garner him votes this late in the game. Odds are not good that Deblouw or Bruce will be given the same NHL opportunity that Grant already has.

NHLGP doesn't really weigh into my voting in Rounds 1 thru 25. Beyond that though, it starts to weigh more heavily with each round that passes.

I don't know much about Bruce except that he's a big defenceman but I see him as the only one left with some NHL upside until proven otherwise.

Wolf and Billins are no longer a factor even though I liked Wolf. Deblouw has shown very little in college and I doubt he'll be signed while Grant may serve as an injury replacement but that's it.

Right now the odds are not good that DeBlouw or Bruce will be given the same AHL opportunity!

No, you're picking him because of his name...

Wolf and Billins will likely never play in North America ever again. Bruce and DeBlouw are both very long shots to make it. Grant will at least play pro hockey in the Flames organization this year.

It's not a ringing endorsement, but he gets my vote here.

Aww. I've only voted beyond round 20 with the express purpose of trying to induce runoffs.
