Starting with the Protectors of the Twine, then the Kings of the Blue Line and ending with the Chiefs of Celly. As always I remind people that these lists are constantly changing, it is rated by the ranking of the prospect, not necessarily the best player at this moment, and there are many weighting factors to the formula.
There will be some surprises in the Goalies, starting with the top of the list is the youngest player on the list.
Vote on the poll on which goalie think is the best prospect in Tier 2 Juniors at the moment:
What started as a concept to keep the Northeast Hockey Talent in the Northeast where more than 1/2 of the NCAA teams reside, ECAC, Hockey East & the Atlantic Hockey Conference conferences to name a few, has done a fairly good job of keeping local talent close.
Not getting the USA Hockey blessing on their financial model was a negative blow to truly calling themselves Tier 2 but nothing strong programs the likes of the Jr. Bruins, Islanders Hockey, NJ Hitmen & South Shore Kings cannot survive (and thrive).
While it is good bar talk on how the NAHL and the NCDC compare overall (I still think the NAHL is deeper in the talent pool and with 3 East teams being strong this year (NJ Titans, NE Generals and undefeated Philadelphia Rebels) it remains to be seen how the two leagues co-exist.
