It has been about eight months into the hockey season and with only one month left in the post season. We are now seeing the separation between the prospects and the focus starts to turn to a larger overall list of players. Many players fortunes changed throughout the remainder of the season and most junior aged players improve in the second half. With the 2012 NHL Entry Draft two months away, the lists are beginning to take shape and rounding the winter mid-term lists. Here is my top 40 list of prospects overall and the remaining list will be posted after the NHL combine. This year's crop is average overall, with a group of potential elite prospects in the top 10. The remaining 20 draft picks in the first round have array of good skills and teams may find a sleeper pick in the early second round.
