Can't Miss

The players were graded on a scale to determine which players had the best chance of playing in the NHL, regardless of talent potential (table to the left).

Each submission was entered into a database, creating a Calgarypuck.com average likelihood index for each player.

The additional index for likelihood helps to paint a very different picture in conjuncture with the orginal potential index. Clearly talent matters with prospects, but talent with issues (conditioning, attitude or injury problems) can lead to a much lower likelihood number.
