How is Paul Szczechura not on this list? Here are his stats from last year:
GP G A P +/- PIM
53 16 15 31 +7 31
Now you think ok, but if you break it down, here are some interesting things from this he played in 24 games for Norfolk and recorded 14 goals and 26 points. A point a night I'll take that at any level. Of his goals only 4 were scored on PP. Had he played a complete season with Norfolk he would have had more points than Blair Jones (75 games 42 points) and Justin Keller (70 games 37 points) who you have ranked on your list. Not to mention he was the thrown in for the Leach for Lessard trade as a throw away. He easily out played Lessard who got a call up to Tampa late in the season. Szczechura would have gotten that call up had he been signed to a NHL contract not just an AHL one at the time. Maybe he was a one year wonder but Tampa didn't think so by signing him to a two way contract this off season. I did have another question this one about Mark Barberio, I know he was a 6th round draft pick this year. You have him listed in Norfolk, has this been confirmed or is this where you believe he will ultimately end up playing this season?

Oops. We like Paul alot. Was excited when he got a TBL contract. I guess we just forgot about him or maybe some of us thought he was overage?
But... he's only 22 with only 67 pro games, so he should be on our list...
We'll have to look at the prospect classification again. At first glance, it was thought he was too old to be included.
We'll look again.
The omission was certainly NOT for lack of appreciation for him.

No. Typo. Should be Monction (QMJHL). Thanks for reading our rankings so closely.
You know, if you use the PM (private messaging) function, you can save the staff from looking like a bunch of idiots...

Sorry guys never meant to make you look like "idiots" I really appreciate the effort you guys put into this site!! You do an excellent job of providing coverage and information about what we have to look forward to in the coming seasons. I post pretty frequently over at Admiralszone.com and was turned on to this site by someone who posts on there from time to time as Boltsprospects. I'm a season ticket holder with the Ads so if you ever have questions please let me know. I'm a orginially from Tampa so I was pretty excited when Norfolk affliated with Tampa last season. I am hoping for better things this year as last year was a real struggle for us not making the playoffs in 19 seasons. Here's to a great Norfolk & Tampa season this year!!
As I am learning how to use this site I will be more than happy to PM you next time! Thanks again for everything you guys do here!!

I think I speak for all of the staff when I say it's GREAT to see more Ads fans joining up here and we hope you all stick around & talk prospects with us.
I think Tim was kidding about the PM thing, or half-kidding at least. ;)

Yes, just kidding, cheapseats. Welcome aboard.
