Why Hockey's Future sucks as a ranking system:

Tanev has the same talent score as Sauve, and Connauton, McNally, and Tommernes have a higher ranking than him.

Gaunce has the same rating as Schroeder, but has the same low rating of success probability.

Jensen is our highest ranked prospect, but has a lower probability of success than Kassian, Lack, and Tanev.

Archibald has the same talent rating as Corrado.

Playing in European leagues give a really poor prediction of NHL success, which is why I'm not reading into Jensen's poor stats too much. Sure, they're not even that bad considering he's tied for 4th in the league in goal scoring, but could be better at just 0.5PPG. The style of game is completely different over there, and smaller skilled guys are having far more success over there compared to big skilled guys.

For example, Alex Steen is still over a point a game (23pts in 20 games with MODO) in the best Swedish league while a guy like Anze Kopitar is scoring at a slightly slower pace in the league below against easier competition.

Playing in the AHL or even KHL would have given us a much better indication of Jensen's NHL-readiness compared to the Swedish leagues. Based on his performance this season, I'd say one year in the AHL (or even 40 games) and he'd be ready to play with the big club.

Nice to see that he came up and got the Win, and only let in 2 goals in the process after struggling a bit with the K-Wings.

Jensen has a higher ceiling though and is ranked higher in the recent top 20 list. But I agree their ratings are a bit weird. Good idea, poor execution. I look more at the top 20 lists and scouting reports vs those ratings. But the top 20 lists are pretty bad too. Grenier at 9th? Sweatt at 17th? They rated Hoznik and Polasek yet left Archibald and Andersson off the list.

I'm sure their ratings would be different at this point given that Archibald had such a lousy time with the wolves last year and Andersson was injured near the start of this year. Also Polasek basically played a full season with the Wolves last year and Honzik was expected to be much better than he has been.

I'm not trying to say their rating system is good, it's just not that bad. I'd also put Grenier higher than Sweatt.

no, their system is crap, and it's done by non-professionals outside the industry (aka fans)

Let nerves get to him perhaps; started with 2 goals on 2 shots. But settled down nicely and shut the door!

Doesn't anyone find I sad that we don't have a single point a game prospect in any league :(
We have some decent prospects alot of bottom 6 talent, But no exciting (other then Jensen) offensive talents.

I don't but we don't really have a offensive talent to follow. Think on how fun it was to follow our prospects when Hodgson was in the hunt for a scoring title. I know we haven't had a pick high in the draft lately but I've noticed we've been taking the safe players ones with ok offensive games good defense and all around games. When's the last time was took a guy that had game flaws but was a very offensive guy similar to an Omark boom or bust.

Joe Cannatta is looking better than Lack OR Climie just now. Another great game for the Wolves.
