The top 20 list this winter is a bear. Seriously. The top 5 were easy (Nail, Schultz!, Klefbom, Marincin and Hartikainen) but after that there’s a long list of higher picks underperforming, last year’s emerging talents playing like this year’s NP’s, and a couple of forgotten Finns posting some impressive numbers.
So, I’ve decided to pick this point in the conversation to remind you of what holds value on the Lowetide top 20. I hold “wide range of skills” dear, so a big man with good hands and foot speed will be favored over a player with fewer skills who is more of a finished prospect.
What does that mean? Well, this week I’ll be posting names 6-10 for this winter’s 20 and unlike the top 5 there has been a lot of movement. #6 first thing tomorrow.
