First Round Bust: Top 20 Wild Prospects

It's that time of year where the HF top-20 is winding up, we await the unveiling of the Hockey's Future rankings to bash and other sites start coming out with their own lists. So Dan and I thought, why not have one more?

And that's what we did.

Instead of just doing ten like last year, the number of guys are doubled. One, the prospect pool is good enough where twenty seemed reasonable and two, we're up for it.

Our plan is to count down from 20 to 1 and update this post/thread as it goes. We hope that we can explain ourselves, have a compelling argument and at worst be told how ****ing wrong and idiotic this idea is because that's how the internet works.

Top 20 Prospects:
#1 - Mikael Granlund
#2 - Jonas Brodin
#3 - Charlie Coyle
#4 - Mathew Dumba
#5 - Johan Larsson
#6 - Matt Hackett
#7 - Brett Bulmer
#8 - Jason Zucker
#9 - Zack Phillips
#10 - Mario Lucia
#11 - Johan Gustafsson
#12 - Darcy Kuemper
#13 - Erik Haula
#14 - Daniel Gunnarsson
#15 - Raphael Bussieres
#16 - Kris Foucault
#17 - Nick Seeler
#18 - Tyler Cuma
#19 - Chay Genoway
#20 - Tyler Graovac

Fringe Stuff:
Honorable Mentions (in no order): John Draeger, Colton Jobke, Adam Gilmour, Christoph Bertschy, Lou Nanne, Stephen Michalek, Sean Lorenz, Kyle Medvec, Justin Fontaine and Joel Broda.
Not considered a prospect: Steven Kampfer, Nate Prosser, David McIntyre
