Mikael Granlund remains top prospect for Minnesota Wild

Hockey's Future wrote an article on our prospect depth

I'm reading it now, will edit in with thoughts. Wanted everyone to see this before it gets posted somewhere else.

In other words I wanted to be able to claim "FIRST!"

Rank Name Position Grade Last Rank Change
1 Mikael Granlund C 8.0B 01 0
2 Charlie Coyle C/RW 8.0C 05 +3
3 Jonas Brodin D 7.5B 04 +1
4 Marco Scandella D 7.0C 02 -2
5 Matt Hackett G 7.0C 03 -2
6 Zack Phillips C 7.0C 08 +2
7 Jason Zucker LW 6.5B 06 -1
8 Johan Larsson C/RW 6.5B 07 -1
9 Brett Bulmer RW 6.5C 14 +5
10 Mario Lucia LW 7.0D 21* +11
11 Justin Falk D 6.5C 15 +4
12 Cody Almond C 6.5C 11 -1
13 Erik Haula C/LW 7.0D 13 0
14 Tyler Cuma D 7.0D 10 -4
15 Darcy Kuemper G 6.5C 16 +1
16 Nate Prosser D 6.5C 18 +2
17 Johan Gustafsson G 6.5C 21* +4
18 Kristopher Foucault LW 6.5D 19 +1
19 Carson McMillan C/RW 6.0C 21* +2
20 Mikko Lehtonen LW 7.0F 20 0
*list only goes to 20, 21* = not ranked in last list

Honorable Mentions include:
Jarod Palmer, David McIntyre, Chad Rau, Justin Fontaine, Chay Genoway, Sean Lorenz

My thoughts:

Nice to see Lucia and Gustafsson crack the list. Still don't agree on some of the grades for some of the guys(Namely Brodin, Hackett, Phillips, and Larsson), but oh well, it still looks like a bright future for us fans.
