Inside today's Locked on Canadiens:
Scott and Laura welcome Byron Bader(@ByronMBader) to the show to discuss all manner of things related to hockey prospect pools. The hosts ask Byron how his site hockeyprospecting.com works, and how his model helps to predict the futures of all 32 NHL franchises. They learn about how things as small as what league a player is drafted from can help form comparisons dating back 32 years!
Naturally the next question is, how do prospects like Joshua Roy and and Riley Kidney stack up inside Bader's model and how they project in the future. Would a season like the one Roy just had in the QMJHL project even better in a league like the OHL or WHL?
Finally, with 14 picks in the upcoming NHL Draft, how does adding a Shane Wright impact their ranking? Scott also wants to know, if you can overcome a lack of superstar talent, with a wealth of mid-tier NHL talent projections. The hosts also ask Bader about how his model projects the current top three in the draft rankings, and how Juraj Slafkovsky stacks up to Shane Wright.
