"Game Time" Prospect Sunday: THE '14 FILE, June 22, 2014

Presenting the 2014 Entry Draft edition of the "Game Time" HOT LIST, our yearly look at a range of players that we expect the Blues to have an interest in, and who project to be available at each stage of the upcoming draft.

Hot List

By Brian Weidler, "Game Time" Prospect Department

Fiala BWThe player that the Blues draft at 21st overall -- even if it is Swiss-born scoring whiz Kevin Fiala (pictured at left) -- will probably not have as accomplished an NHL career as Jason Spezza, who has scored 30 or more goals four times in the last 11 seasons. He will probably not be a point-per-game player over a long NHL career, as Spezza has been (251 goals, 687 points in 686 games), or appear in two NHL All-Star Games, as Spezza has.

What this player will likely do, however, is become a part of the long-term core group in St. Louis and a major fan favorite, as past first-round picks T.J. Oshie, Alex Pietrangelo, Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Tarasenko have done.

Spezza is a quality player, no doubt... but the Blues are, in your GTPD's estimation, better served for the long term by using the 21st overall pick in this year's draft to pick the next Oshie or Tarasenko -- a player that will probably be here for the next decade or more -- instead of trading it for a 31-year-old player, no matter how good that player may be.

With all that said, we now present the 2014 Draft edition of the St. Louis "Game Time" Hot List, our yearly look at a range of players whom we expect to be available to the Blues at each stage of the upcoming draft.

Chatham BWAs in previous years, by totaling the player's ranking from each of the three scouting services to which your GTPD subscribes -- "Future Considerations," "Hockey Prospect.com," and International Scouting Services -- and then dividing the total by three, we arrived at a projected draft position for each player, which was then broken down by round. For example, Belleville native Connor Chatham (pictured at right) was ranked 83rd by "FC," 77th by "Hockey Prospect" and 54th by ISS, for a total ranking of 214 points. 214 divided by 3 comes out to just over 71, a draft position which places Chatham in the third round.
