Top 20 Prospects

Hockey's Future released their top 20 prospect list for each team this week.  The Sabres list does not include many surprises.  Drew Stafford is obviously the number one prospect with Clarke MacArthur, Andrej Sekera, Jhonas Enroth and T.J. Brennan rounding out the top five.  I guess if there is one surprise it's that Marek Zagrapan is number nine on the list.  Zagrapan struggled a little in his first professional season but he came on at the end and appeared to be more comfortable as the season progressed.  In my opinion he is still one of the Sabres top prospects.  There are probably a lot of Sabres fans that are upset with Patrick Kaleta being left out of the top 20 because he is a fan favorite.  In response to this I have compiled a list of my own.

  1. Drew Stafford

2a. Clarke MacArthur
2b. Andrej Sekera

  1. Jhonas Enroth
  1. Marek Zagrapan
  1. Daniel Paille
  1. T.J. Brennan
  1. Marc-Andre Gragnani
  1. Mike Weber
  1. Nathan Gerbe
  1. Dennis Persson
  1. Chris Butler
  1. Tim Kennedy
  1. Ben Breault
  1. Vyateslav Buravchikov
  1. Mike Funk
  1. Drew Scheistel
  1. Corey Tropp
  1. Phillipe Gogulla
  1. Felix Schutz

My list slightly resembles that of Hockey's Future but with a few quirks in it.  I agree with them that Patrick Kaleta is not one of the top 20 prospects although that may be upsetting to some fans.
