Josiah Didier (had a good season in the NCAA as a freshman and only heard good things so far, kinda surprised to see him outside the top 25)
Ian Schultz (has potential to be a gritty 4th liner willing to fight and he showed good progression, hopefully he can pick up where he left off and become what I thought Conboy was gonna become)
Olivier Archambault (one of the few realistic boom-or-bust prospect remaining, I liked the things I saw in the preseason games he was part of, he's good at stickhandling and Timmins seems to be high on him. I expected a better season since he was on a new team and with a fresh start but at this point who cares, he has more NHL potential than the forwards remaining here)
Colin Sullivan (has all the tools to be a good bottom pairing defenseman, he's commited to Boston College next year so we'll see what happens but he has some potential especially at this point of the rankings)
Erik Nystrom (this year's intriguing prospect, I'm kinda surprised he hasn't been voted in earlier than now. People around here love those homerun type of picks, just look at Trunev and Avtsin a couple years ago. Timmins is really high on him and our european scout kept an eye on him so chances are that he's not some out of the dark pick for ***** and giggles)
HM: Trunev (if he showed any signs that he'd be interested in coming over he'd be in the top 15 without a doubt but there's no sign right now that he'll ever go oversea)
Pateryn (has a similar package to another prospect in our organization called Brendan Nash minus the pro experience and with log jam on our defense and how old he is I don't see him having a chance at cracking the NHL unless the injury bug feels like ****ing with us once again)
Dustin Walsh (didn't play much this year because of an injury but he has nice size and he's a centerman, we'll see in a year or two when he comes to the AHL)

Right now I'm kind of laughing at those who cast a vote for Schultz instead of Berger. Berger has the skating and puck skills to go with that size, and could turn into a permanent 4th liner somewhere, at least. The "most knowledgeable fan base in the league" has really let me down over the past 10 picks or so.
The same Alain Berger that's too slow to do anything at the pro level? The guy could barely crack our decimated by injuries AHL squad last year and he only had a single goal in 47 games. If you're gonna call out a community for lacking knowledge, how about you do your own research first. There's a reason why this year Schultz got the call-up and not Berger.
