  • BF

    Curious as to why a 30 y/o forward is classified as a prospect?

    • Dobber

      Sure. He’s a “prospective” NHLer. If he’s not proven, he’s a prospect. You’ll notice I’ll never list hard and fast rules here. Makes things too rigid. I use my own decision making when it comes to graduating players.

      • Sev

        Thanks. Ship is also “prospect-eligible” in league drafts due to his NHL GP games played total of zero (0).

  • Brad

    How is it that a player like Bertuzzi doesn’t improve his position when he’s one of the only active players left on this list and has his team within 1 win of the Calder Cup?

    Just curious how much could change Between May and June if that doesn’t move the dial?

    • Dobber

      Bertuzzi was too high. And after the Prospects Report’s thorough auditing, he was moved down…and then back up again with the strong playoff. Net result: no change.

  • MasterMind

    Curious as to why Kieffer Bellows is not on this list or last list, but guys that will never have or reach any fantasy value at all are on here? I see guys that are 4th and 5th round picks on this list.

    • Dobber

      I don’t see Kieffer Bellows ever being on my fantasy team. Very little upside, and very long wait.
