Whoa, throw on the breaks there Mr. "I have never seen one of these players take a shift in my life". Just because you have never seen or heard of these teenagers before does not give you the credibility to doubt what Mr Timmins and his staff have worked so hard to uncover. I can look at eliteprospects.com, compare stats based on historic context and make judgements too, but I am smart enough to know that there is a little thing called intangibles. In order to feel the "true" potential a prospect may have,,, you need to go to the rink, buy a ticket and watch the game. By criticizing the habs 4th to 7th round picks less than 24 hrs later (except for Daniel Pribyl, which I am sure you are happy with based on the numerous games you watched Sparta U20 play this season) you are truely showing a lack of credibility. It takes more than looking at the PPG ratio to evaluate talent! You are acting like you wanted T.T. to draft a power forward in the 4th round or later that was going to be on the team next season or something. Sorry but it's not going to happen. The amateur scouting dept works tirelessly all year long to make sure that through ALL 7 rounds they take the best player available. I guess that is why you are "seriousfan" and not "seriousscout". You comment on just about every thread that pertains to prospects and you copy and paste stats every monday during the season so you think that gives you journalistic credibility???
