Mantha (50 goals, pro-sized, what's the point of being in Junior?)
Ristolainen (Stud d-man, NHL ready IMO)

Not sure if I see anyone else being closer than these guys. Thoughts?"

I think Lindholm would take another year in Sweden and I can't see Horvat making the jump. Monahan, depending on who he's picked by, could possibly make it though. I'd like to see Monahan back in junior as I think he could really use it as a chance to get to the next level, especially if he was moved to a contending team.
I think it really depends on who picks them, Monahan I could see being a 3rd liner for a team as of next year. Sort of how Couturier was used in his rookie year, especially if he's drafted by Edmonton. The thing that all of these prospects have in common is their solid defensive play which would help them get a spot in the NHL as of next year.
