The fact that he's ahead of MDZ and McDonagh shows you all you need to know about these. Gilroy was ahead of Kreider and Sauer. Who cares how fans voted anyway? Besides at some point Kreider was our #1 prospect too.
The point I was making across is that just because they are highly ranked prospects, doesn't mean they're guaranteed to be elite players. This is the case with Anisimov who was the best prospect in the system all the way to being known as a tweener in a matter of 2 years. Same thing with Kreider and Miller, both are highly touted prospects right now, but I doubt they become anything more than another Anisimov or Dubinsky.
