Default Calgarypuck Prospect Ranking 2017 - Round 14

It's baaaaaaaaaaaaaack

Calgarypuck's 5th Annual Prospect Ranking Poll Series

Here are the last 5 years for a quick glance ...

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!

Who will join Sean Monahan, Johnny Gaudreau, Sam Bennett and Matthew Tkachuk as the top prospect. Previous four have gone straight to the show.

Fixed

and also changed the topic title to round 14 instead of 13. Old habits ...

I went Phillips over Klimchuk and Shinkaruk. Upside is still in tact while other two have had some hits to their projection.

Matthew's Phillips has a chance to be a star NHLer. Long road ahead of him to grow, including another year of Junior, probably a couple years of Minor Pro, and still would have to earn ice time in the big leagues.

But I believe!

After that I would say Klimchuk, looked ready to contribute as a 3rd line NHLer late last year. Well-rounded kid.
Then AOM. One of those guys who does something good every shift.
Then Pribyl, who can really control the game. Had some shifts last year that had a Thornton/Jagr-ish feel to them.
Then Tuulola. He has one skill which the rest of this organization sorely lacks - he's a volume shooter with a great shot. It might be one-dimensional but we have about twenty guys who could take full advantage of that one dimension as a teammate of his.
Then Lindstrom. Never underestimate a Flames 4th Rounder. Played 50 SHL games as a draft+1.
Then Shinkaruk. Skilled but kinda limited overall.

Phillips is next for me. Probably the highest potential of anybody left, but a riskier player at this point.

Personally would have had him ahead of Poirier.

Hathaway followed by Lomberg, two prospects with low ceilings but high floors (Lomberg was the last cut in 2016)

Klimchuk, AOM, Shink, Healy, Worherspoon and Lindstrom are next as they all have decent ceilings but are frankly unlikely to make the show.

When I don't have a clear favorite in mind, I ask myself who from the list would I be most disappointed to give up in a trade?

From this list, nothing emerged.

Hathaway will definitely play some games for the Flames. The only other guy I can say that about is Wotherspoon. Went with Hathaway.

My vote is for the guy that's going to make the team next season. Hathaway will be a permanent fixture in this lineup sooner than later. While "ceilings" may be higher in some other other players, everyone else on the list is a complete crapshoot where they ever make the NHL.

Absolutely nothing against Hathaway, but I just don't see replacement level players as prospects unless they have the upside to play in the top 9. Defensemen I cut more slack because of the value of the position, but not career tweeners for the fourth line.

I actually think Wotherspoon might surprise people this year. I was expecting Treliving to cut him loose but he re-signed him. Which suggests that he has a future here.

was between phillips and klimchuk for me. Klimchuk seems like a higher floor type player, but phillips may have the higher ceiling. Hence, went with Phillips.

He plays top line in Stockton, there's no doubt in my mind he could play in the top 9 with talented players. Look at guys like Sheary and Guentzel, Hathaway could fill that same type of role, and already does in the A, IMO.

Went with Klimchuk. Had a big bounce-back last season and I think he could fill many roles, making his likelihood of making the NHL a bit higher than the rest.

Shinkaruk and Phillips are next for me.

not so sure ...

Guentzel was a third round pick that was a point per game college player and then lit up the AHL

Sheary was a point per game AHL player that has translated.

Hathaway has been a much less productive player both at the college and AHL level. I like the guy, and I love his energy, but I don't see much more than that. Last year his production did rise, I'll give you that. Maybe a good sign.,

Wow the shine is off Shinkaruk for a lot of you eh? He was rated quite highly last year. Had a good finish to the year. Not saying he should necessarily go here but it's funny to see nary a mention of him in the thread so far.

For me it's between Shinkaruk and Klimchuk although the Wotherspoon suggestion is interesting. I do think Wotherspoon has a chance to make the team this fall even though I think Kulak has a big edge in that battle. I guess if injuries hit the defense in training camp (knock on wood) both could.

Phillips has that upside but I'm not a believer in players that small until they show it at a level higher than junior. I've seen a ton of elite scorers in junior not make it. He needs to bulk up and prove it against men before I'm a believer.

So yeah Klimchuk or Shinkaruk for me. The one dimensional scorer vs the intelligent all around player with injury problems. Bit of a toss up for me. Don't think Shinkaruk will get a chance here unless injuries hit. I do think he could play for a team like Vegas, I wonder if they'd pluck him off waivers. Klimchuk I think is the more likely NHLer overall if he can stay healthy so I choose to go that direction.
