Drafting Rookies

So what do you look for when you get to the entry draft? Ratings are always so low you don't know what will go up. Scouting reports are never very useful. There's usually only one player on your team all the prospects of that position are comapred too, and the strength/weakness reports are pretty vague. They'll say a player's best strength is goal scoring, for example, but never say if we're talking Gretzky level scoring or Martin Brodeur level scoring. Do we look at their stats? I've seen prospects with a 1 star potential who've scored 1.5 points pre game. Those two numbers don't seem like they should conincide.

Having a scouting report with letter grades, like they do in real life (and that other game) would be so much more beneficial.

Even when the prospects are still 17 years old, the 'Role Ratings' and the strengths and personality comments are at least good indicator in which direction the player will most likely develop.

I always try to draft players with a high 'Professionalism' rating as those players are more likely to reach their potential.

The attached screenies show a guy i┤ll probably pick as he already has decent ratings for an offensive d-man and his good defensive ratings paired with low team player rating (bad for defensive d-men) and mediocre skating would give me a potential 6-8 defenseman.

The always existing hit-or-miss factor makes it way more interesting. Screenie 3 is a 3rd(!!) round pick, 75th overall who developed into an elite playmaking/2-way 4.5 stars center. So everything is possible
