Default Calgarypuck Prospect Ranking 2016 - Round 11

It's baaaaaaaaaaaaaack. almost like Shark Week on the Discovery Channel Calgarypuck and the Summer Prospect Ranking has become an institution for rabid Calgary hockey fans.

2013 - Sean Monahan is the top prospect (2013)

2014 - Johnny Gaudreau takes his turn (2014)

2015 - Sam Bennett come on down! (2015)

The last three years have had a prospect named first, and then make an impact right away on the NHL team. Bennett had to have surgery and mop up the OHL first, but all three were big players for the Flames right away.

Will that be the case again this year?

As per usual the vote is up to you. Some see it as most likely to play, some see it as highest ceiling, others see it as a mix of both.

Happy voting!

Round 1 - Tkachuk 83% (http://forum.calgarypuck.com/showthread.php?t=155575 )
Round 2 - Jankowski 42% (http://forum.calgarypuck.com/showthread.php?t=155585)
Round 3 - Gillies 65% (http://forum.calgarypuck.com/showthread.php?t=155591)
Round 4 - Kylington 35% (http://forum.calgarypuck.com/showthread.php?t=155598)
Round 5 - Hickey 38% (http://forum.calgarypuck.com/showthread.php?t=155615)

I think I said this around round seven, but Brett Kulak. Coaches rave about his work ethic, his mobility and first-pass are more than NHL-level, and he's trended upwards every year, even the ECHL rookie year he came back to the AHL in the second half and lit it up offensively. Has the makeup of a guy who's going to have a long career in the NHL in my opinon.

I was never really sure where to slot Pribyl in. I have him next on my list, then Kulak, but if I did it again, I could just as easily go the other way.

Will stick to my list and go Pribyl then Kulak.

went Prybil because at some point you have to give him credit for putting up good numbers in a league that is similar to the AHL.

If he's the best AHL player left on the list and then that's something.

Also tempted to get into the Fox and Parsons of the list at some point.

Went with Kulak because he has top 4 potential and could see time at the NHL level this year.

Thought about going with Pribyl but I haven't seen him at all, so felt like I couldn't rank him ahead of Kulak.

Went back and forth between Fox and Parsons, went with the G as I feel Fox, as a defenseman, is likely quite a few years away from even going pro whereas with a G that is more expected.

Pribyl I have very low expectations for, but that is probably my own bias based on him playing in the domestic Czech league, I hope I am positively surprised by his performance in NA this year.

Almost voted for Hamilton. Went for Kulak. Would love to vote for Fox or Parsons who seem very intriguing but the gap on how long before they turn pro slants my judgement.

We know that Kulak can play, and I personally think he could have went higher in this poll. No idea what to expect from Prybil.

I went with McDonald. I think he will be the real deal. When you get to see him play more, you will notice that he is not a flashy goalie but a very smart he is always in the right place.

I can't vote right now, but I'll be voting for parsons first chance I get. The last two rounds sidetracked my personal last a little.

Yeah, if it's between Kulak and Pribyl then Kulak all the way.

A: He's played NHL games already
B: Very good scouting reports
C: Better draft position (for those who care about such)
D: Already acclimated to NA ice

I can see good arguments for 10 or so guys at this point.
For me the next 5 are:
Parsons, Fox, Pribyl, Tuulola, Phillips
A bit surprised Kulak is getting so many votes, he's #20 on my list.

I've been voting Pribyl for the last 2 rounds, but it is based on nothing more than his stats last year.

45 points in 45 games is nothing to write off. It is worth keeping in mind that Roman Cervenka had 61 points in 49 games last year in the Czech league.

Priybyl is a bit younger and bigger than Cervenka was when he had his stint with the Flames, so maybe he'll fair a bit better. Who knows.

Kulak and Wotherspoon are definitely safer options as they have both shown they don't look completely out of the place at the NHL level. Kulak in particular looked good at the start of the last year for the Flames.

I get the love for Pribyl. Outside of Cervenka he was the best point producer in the Czech league last season and he did it at 22.

But I am always leary of putting expectations on players from the lesser pro leagues based on counting numbers. There are way more Cervenkas and Wolf's then their are Panarin's. Plus Panarin was putting up better numbers in a much better league at the same age.

Pribyl is a sexy choice. But I think we have too many solid prospects still on the board.

I went Klimchuk. Not a sexy pick as he looks like a third line defensive specialist. But those are the type of players that help you win and we need a lot of help in our bottom 6.

Getting to the part of the list where its really just guesswork for me, and voting mainly on hype and hearsay.

Not that those factors weren't a big part of my previous votes.

Went with Kulak, who I believe is a different player from Culkin.
