I'm not 100% what HF's definition of a prospect is (it's on the site), but I know that it relates to age and NHL games played, not so much current situation.

Obviously, Semin and Green are NHLers, but they might not be "graduated" by HF's criteria.

You're right. But they should change their criteria. I mean, Richard Zednik is more of a reject than Semin, ha ha.


There, fixed that for you. :)

I agree, but I think it's important for some of the young guys to get their confidence up from playing another year in the AHL (which is where Klepis should be). The lockout year provided many of the Sabres' top prospects that very opportunity, and now they're showing what a benefit it can be.
