He's also 23 years old so i'm sure that played a part in the low ranking. 95% of these guys are under 20

Being younger doesn't make them a better prospect though. That's the fallacy with alot of these lists.

The majority of the guys on this list will never put up over a point per game in the AHL, let alone become NHL regulars.

Pulkinnen has shown a trend of putting up points in top leagues. The likelihood of him becoming an NHLer is much higher than alot of the players ahead of him on the list.

Yeah and im pretty sure they know that. Do you know there criteria when making there lists? They may have him low because of his age. A lot of good players on this list, nothing wrong with thinking 93 other players have more potential.

Potential is nothing more than hype. The guys near the top are young so they haven't been able to underachieve or exceed expectations.

A guy who has met or surpassed expectations should be ranked higher. If the criteria includes players who are 23, they should be ranked the same as ones who are 18. There's only a handful of them that will jump into the NHL right away, and the rest will have to go the same route as Pulkinen, which is the development route.

Yeah but I know they are thinking it.

I personally think being in the top 30 is a compliment to him considering these lists are often based on point totals, and Jake didn't exactly have the best season.

The fact that he's being considered that high despite the lack of high point totals says alot.

I think the list is pretty good, Canuck fans are just sour because Virtanen is ranked so low.

Just curious, which team are you a fan of?

I won't argue with 30. That means of the 30 teams, we have a first rounder in 3 years worth of drafting. These rankings are pure fantasy until these players start to put up numbers in the NHL, and many of those players are bound to spend years toiling away in the Minor leagues waiting to get their shot at the show. Our drafts in '13 '14 '15 have been excellent and the fact that we're being named in the same breath as teams that have been perennial tank artists is encouraging.
