Haula has come a very very long way for a 7th round pick, but he's still a very longshot for making a top-6 role in the NHL. Both Lucia and Bussieres have higher ceilings, and probably have a markedly better chance of making the NHL in some capacity.

As for the rest of the field, Kampfer is at least an NHL depth defenseman, as he's shown in his 61 NHL games. Gustafsson and Kuemper have garnered much more impressive accolades (although goaltenders are incredibly hard to project) than Haula. Cuma's ceiling has been lowered due to injuries, but he's still a better bet for making the NHL than Haula.

I just can't see any compelling argument for voting for Haula at this point.
