Yogan has to be the pick here based on this recent play. Add Parlett.

- I haven't seen any scouts say that Yoggi has top-6 potential.
- I also doubt that Fogarty has top-6 potential. All the scouting reports say that he's a gritty forward who hits hard and scores garbage goals.
- McColgan has top-6 potential, but that's because he's an offense-first player. He definitely has no bottom-6 potential since he can only play on the top two lines. Seeing as he was just drafted in the 5th round, it seems fair to say that his value is just that - a 5th rounder.

Hopefully in the next year, either St. Croix or McColgan take their game to the next level and become top end prospects. If one of them pans out, it will be huge for the Rangers.
