I'm not sold on Bachman's glove & his size will make it easier for guys to go top shelf on him. Which to me means on some nights he's going to be just fine but others when teams are shooting well his size is going to hurt him and allow for some goals.

I personally wouldn't have Larsen on this list either because he's NHL now to me. I'm also not a believer in Campbell but I don't know that there's any sure fire home run guys here so by default I guess he'd be listed first.

1) Campbell (AHL will tell, assuming terrible coach is fired)
2) Oleksiak (He's not Chara but he could be Bowmeester)
3) Chiasson (G & others are higher but he's produced in a bad situation, needs to sign)
4) Nemeth (Nordstrom 2.0 if things go right)
5) R. Smith (I still may have him too low)
6) Stransky (Huge believer, he's going to be our new Ribeiro)
7) Bachman (size has him here)
8) Glennie (can he finally put the work and drive together with the talent?)
9) Richtie (big body, a full year on a good junior team will tell the tale)
10) Fraser (Whoever said Ryder's replacement is dead on)
11) Dillion (Everything you could ask for this year, should push for spot next season)
12) Beskowrany (is he going to get a chance or is he Ellis part 2?)
13) Guptil (NCAA freshman point leader at UofM? Color me impressed.)
14) Klingberg (3 year project but what a nice possible outcome)
15) J. Benn (made himself into something, not sure if that's more than a 7th d-man though)
16) Vance (big man has a future in the NHL)
17) A. Smith (I'm not a believer but I hope he proves me wrong)
18) Sceviour (He'll make it as a 4th line guy but that's not that significant to me)
19) Jokipakka (steady is great in a d-man and could fill a hole here starting next midseason)
20) Molin (probably should be higher)
