Itīs too hard to rank our prospects for me, I would only say one thing - Harrington is a key for us and our system. Heīs the most sure thing out of our boys and I can see him playing in NHL as soon as next year and maybe slowly and surely develop to complement Letang on our 1st pair. Point is that Letang would have his hands open for some killing offense, Harrington is comfortable in complementing situations like that and playing big minutes. If I had to compare him to somebody, I would say Girardi.

We need just 4 of these 6 prospects to fulfill their potential and we will have a Top 5 defense in the league in 4-5 years. (we can still add something nice from FA).
He's one of the youngest defensemen in the AHL, and playing a system that takes a lot of getting used to, even for veteran players.

Our eventual First Team All-Star James Neal, of all people, took awhile to find his bearings here.
