I voted for Miller over McIlrath. Although I'm intrigued by the prospect of McIlrath developing into the bruising defenseman we've lacked, I think Miller is more of a sure bet at this point. There are still questions about McIlrath's skill level as a pro.

Hagelin is a little further down the list for me. I see him as a great third liner for years to come... sort of like a Todd Marchant. I just don't see Hagelin having the hands to score much more than he did last year. As a very good 4-year college player, Hagelin was more mature than your typical first year pro, so he was able to step in and produce as a rookie. But I don't see a great offensive upside.

Add Michael St. Croix. Although junior point totals are not the last word, he had a truly outstanding season. I think this puts him ahead of other prospects like Yogan, who was never as productive as St. Croix in juniors, and Fogarty or Nieves, who haven't been as competed at the next level yet (which for them will be college).
