Sometimes you get the feeling that some rankings are designed to be provocative.

Still, it is a good reminder that the Canucks have one of the very best prospects in the world, and that is something to be excited about.

Thanks for the links, Hank.

Will be interesting to see how accurate these turn out to be.

Guy was throwing darts.

Petterson ahead of Dahlin?

Hughes way down the list ?

Tkachuk way down and both he and Hughes behind Farabee

UW, yes agree.

Mick, was afraid these were already posted. Yes, we are starting to look better :D

DC4PM, no probs. Will be interesting indeed. This list is fluid and will get shuffled rather quickly.

Blob, I don’t think this list is set. I agree, why is Farabee way up while Tkachuk and Hughes are way down? Some of the positions I get... some guys are more proven and established at this point than those that just got drafted. Case in point, a 20 year old Strome is up for this reason (although he’s sure to be passed by many on this list soon).

Dahlin might be the best when all is said and done, but right now Petterson has done the most after a magical, record-breaking season.

I wouldn’t get too worked up over this list. It’s just nice to see for Nucks fans.

The only list Blob likes is his Friday afternoon booze list he makes for his visit to the BCL

I read it as a "Right Now" list, and not where guys are projected to be in even a year. From that prospective, it makes a bit more sense. Dahlin will move up. Hell, he's rated pretty high, given some of the names are 22 years old, and he's 18.

Same for Hughes. He's ranked far down, cuz at this very moment, that is where he belongs, especially since he's still in the NCAA. He'll definitely be moving up through out this year.

But, some people like to get enraged. :D

Bottom line is you wouldn’t get Dahlin for Petterson. Not even close. Dahlin is the better prospect.

I would think it's pretty much impossible to have anything but a 'right now' prospect list... with every guy coming from a different background, with a different skill set, filling a different position and role, all at different ages and stages of development, no quantifiable marker to measure intangibles like commit,emt, compete, leadership and potential, and each teams specific needs.. not to mention hockey is very much a 'what have you done for me lately' sport, how could a person make a list any other way??

Definatley time to rage. :lol:

I kept reading “engaged”. It made me laugh. Then I realized it was “enraged” and I laughed harder.

Thanks for the chuckle Blob!!

Defenders never get the love, people want points, goals, blocking shots do not sell tickets.

I think all the EP stuff has made his stock rise.
