    Is Ryan Graves still relavent. I know he’s been marinating in the minors for a while, but hes having a down year and has never earned a call up

  • Ian Sharp

    Where does Sebastian Aho (NYI) land on this list? Very good AHL stats this year especially for goals. Popped his 1st in the NHL yesterday, added an assist and was first star.

  • Steve

    How the hell does Lilegren make the top 10 and be over a guy like Chabot?

      First words in the article:
      “As always, players within +/- 5.0 ratings points should be considered about equal value and at that point would depend on personal preference and team needs.”

  • Bruce Allen

    After watching Jake Bean play 3 years of Jr hockey I am not certain he will ever be a factor in the NHL. There has been little advancement in his skills from last year to this ,in fact his puck possession skills seem to have eroded. Hope I am wrong .
