Over the past couple weeks, I've been breaking down the good and the bad of what's happened so far during the 2015 NHL offseason. After going through all four divisions, looking at the players that teams have added and subtracted, and how they've spent their money, I figured I would put together a big list of which teams are winners and losers, and which teams are floating in their own category somewhere in the middle. Hey, it's the summer and we still have like seven weeks until the season starts, so it's the perfect time to sit back and speculate.

Jets Nation Prospect Profile 2015: #16 JC Lipon

The 2013 NHL Entry Draft was a solid summer of prospect stocking for the Jets, with the Jets accumulating at least eight players who made the first step by earning their entry level contract (nine if you include the undrafted Axl Blomqvist who was signed out of prospect camp).

One of these players was JC Lipon.

Lipon was an overager who went undrafted for his first two eligible seasons after putting up mediocre point totals. Small scoring players tend to be under appreciated, but small players who do not score are outright and legitimately ignored.

We continue our summer prospect profile series, checking in at #16.

Report: ESPN's Pronman ranks 6 Jets in top 100 prospects and top 10 goaltenders

We discussed earlier how ESPN's prospect guru Corey Pronman likes the Jets prospect cupboard. Pronman had ranked the Jets sixth best prospect depth overall (warning: paywall).

The well versed prospect expert recently released his top 100 prospects and his top 10 goaltender prospects (warning: more paywalls).

Five Jets made the top 100 prospects, while one made the top 10 goalies, showing in part why Pronman likes the Jets so much.

We will discuss some of the list, but not give out specific details as we believe that Pronman's information is worth an ESPN subscription alone (plus copyrights and all).
