It wasn't hard at all for me to vote for Ralphy da Bus.
IMO Kampfer is a fringe NHL Dman at best. A depth, call-up guy.
I like Haula's speed a lot but I'm not sure about the rest of the package.
Goalies are very hard to rate. Kuemper had a good start in his limited games last year in the AHL but I'd like to see much more, as in holding down an AHL #1 job for a full season. I'd like to see how Gustavsson does in North America, too. Not saying they're bad or not good prospects or won't make it, just that I'd like to see much more of them.
As far as Bussieres in the Q, or any kid in any league, there's a lot more to the story than just scoring. In fact, scoring in the Q is a very poor indicator of how a kid will do in the NHL IMO. I like his size, speed, and aggressiveness.
