Based on the outcome of this past season...
-Galchenyuk at #1.
Yes, it's the obvious pick.
-Tinordi and Collberg in the top 5.
Great call on these two. Tinordi will be a beast for the Habs next season and Collberg is going to look very nice on the Habs top 9, given his development doesn't hit any snags on the way there.
-Beaulieu at #2.
He looked okay at the NHL level but still needs some seasoning. I still have him in the top 5 but possibly two ranks lower, at #4, just in front of Collberg.
-Leblanc at #4.
Granted, we had no idea he'd hit that big of a wall, that hard. He had so much promise to his game and looked like he was a year or two away and then completely lost a step.
-Ellis at #7.
His drop off, to me, has more reflection on what others did better rather than what he did wrong. He stepped off a bit, but not as much as others and not as much as those two stepped it UP. I still like him as a prospect.
-Thrower at #9.
Same as Leblanc, he lost a step. A big one. I don't see him inside the top 10 but I hope, like Leblanc, he continues positively and proves me wrong. He didn't look good this past season with Saskatoon.
-Bennett at #11.
Just outside the top 10? I think he's a bit lower/behind some other prospects.
-Quailer at #17.
Big drop off for him. Outside of the top 20.
-Schultz at #30.
He shouldn't even be on the list.
HM: Those who were either released or did not get signed, for obvious reasons, but that's hindsight at this point.
-Gallagher at #6.
Top five minimum. Top 3, in my opinion. (Galchenyuk, Gallagher, Tinordi)
-Kristo at #8.
I'd have him closer to the top 5 than the bottom of the top 10.
-Dietz at #15.
He's top 10.
-Vail, Hudon and Dumont at #19, #20 and #21 respectively.
All three of them get bumped up several spots, in my opinion. Dumont will be a very solid fourth liner for the Habs. Vail and Hudon show a lot of upside and promise.
-Nygren at #31.
What. Are. You. Doing. There...?
-Delmas at #37.
My own bias and I fully admit that and own it. I have a soft spot for him and believe he should be ranked higher than some ahead of him.
My top 10 would look a little something like this.
I'd have Nygren at #11, just scratching the surface of the top 10.
