Voted Stolarz. He's going to get a boatload of playing time where he's going and the "issues" he has are very correctable. Great glove hand, great lateral movement, big, takes up a lot of net and is very good in the butterfly. The biggest issue is that sometimes he relies on the butterfly too much instead of standing up and letting his size take over and he's also prone to giving up big rebounds because of always dropping into the butterfly. Those are very correctable. He's also made a very positive impression with regards to the US hockey program and everyone there has liked what they've seen.

He took an unusual route by going the NAJHL route and he's one of those guys who has consistently gotten better at every level he's played at. Some see him as a long term project and I don't know what long term is in most people's minds, but three years of NCAA hockey and a year in the AHL is probably what Stolarz needs. That's not very long term when you think of it.
