I put Straka, Stolarz, McGinn, Noebels, Akeson, Manning, Lauridsen, (Bourdon), and Flanagan in this tier.
I agree 100 percent with the ranking but it's just not how I see it playing out in the polls. I'm a big believer in Cousins, I truly think he'll be a solid NHLer but unfortunately many on here don't think his game will translate to the next level. Combine that with the Stollie and more recently Straka hype and I see Cousins falling a bit. Don't get me wrong, I think Stolarz has the tools to be a really good player but it's so early. And as far as Straka is concerned if he can learn to play all zone next season in the AHL and stay healthy I think he's got an NHL future but that's a lot of if's and even still I would consider him a slightly bigger and slightly younger Akeson.
