I'll update it when needed

Also, this chart only includes prospects/players (U27) that actually have a shot of one day cracking the roster.

Some may think I'm crazy, but I actually do think we may have a future number 1 center already. Not much reasoning behind it, but I just feel like with the center depth we have right now, chances are one of them will underachieve and one of them will overachieve. It's not guaranteed, but I think it could happen

McCann could get there. Long shot, but he's got that swagger to be real good kinda like Shinkaruk.

Realistically I think we have two elite second lines with our prospects, and that can be good enough to win, if your bottom 6 is two elite third lines.

IMO we need to work on our future D. A legit 1C would be nice but like Derp said "Realistically I think we have two elite second lines with our prospects, and that can be good enough to win, if your bottom 6 is two elite third lines."

Im pretty sure Benning was saying Tryamkin is almost NHL ready, so his upside is probably better than a depth D-man more of a top 6 maybe a top 4. Hutton is definitely a top 4 Defenceman same as Corrado. IMO

I agree. This is why I ranked him as a Top 6/Top 4 Dman in the future. The reason I put Top 6 and Depth Dmen in one ranking is because I couldn't find a colour noticeably different than the ones I already used haha.

"Tryamkin+"

A couple of them are bound to surprise and exceed expectations. It always happens. 3 seasons into the nhl we didn't think the twins were ever going to win scoring titles but they did. I gotta think at least 2 of our current prospects go above and beyond their ceilings. Whether Virtanen goes Iginla for us or McCann/Horvat become #1C, something will go right for us.

A useful chart. I think that this demonstrates that we have decent depth in the prospect pool at Centre, but we are pretty thin on the wings. I expect that JB will attempt to compensate for the relative lack of prospects on the wings by signing UFA wingers (e.g. Moulson, Jokinen, etc) or by moving 1 or 2 prospects from centre to wing. As far as I know, Horvat, Bonino, Matthias, and Vey can play (and have played) on the wing as an option to center although they may not be as useful in that position. I'd like to see us get more wingers like Virtanen, Shink and Kassian in the system through the 2015 draft.
