Lack needs to be in the NHL or he'll be a UFA (honestly he'll be a UFA anyways) plus as others pointed out, he isn't even a prospect anymore in HF's prospect FAQ (since he's 25 and has been in the AHL for 3 years).

Of course there is a clear different between Lack/JS and the rest of the prospects mostly due to the others being very very raw/long term projects (i.e. Subban), realistic are a long shot to make the NHL, or be any more than a 4th liner/depth dman (i.e. Lain).
I agree, looking through the list it's hard to find stand-outs outside of the top 6. The top 6 is pretty decent, and then there is a precipitous drop-off. I'm not counting Lack because he has graduated from prospect status. He should be removed so as to not skew the results.

For me, the next picks go:

Mallet
Cassels
Subban
Cannata - should be well ahead of Eriksson at this point
Lain
Hutton
Tochkin
Eriksson
