Ranking the Flyers top 10 prospects

In light of the recent top 50 and the exclusion of Ryan Parent from the list, I thought it'd be interesting to see people's views of our prospects. Obviously the top of the list will change with the draft. I'm using the criteria HF uses so I'm going to include Coburn and Ruzicka.

1. Steve Downie- over 2 ppg in OHL, another great WJC
2. Ryan Parent- 1A with Downie, maybe the best defensive defenseman prospect in the world
3. Braydon Coburn- Has shown great ability at NHL level, tremendous skater
4. Claude Giroux- Another good year in the Q, should be a WJC star next year
5. Ryan Potulny- Averaging close to a PPG in the AHL, played well at NHL level
6. Stefan Ruzicka- Been up and down at NHL level, but showing more confidence and playing better. Sanderson called him one of the most skilled players on the team.
7. Andreas Nodl- Tremendous freshman year for Saint Cloud, a year or two away
8. Mike Ratchuk- Quality freshman year at MSU, great skater
9. Oskars Bartulis- Another quality defenseman putting up a solid year in juniors
10. Denis Bodrov- Hard to evaluate because most haven't seen him play, but he's gotten good reviews from Russian fans who have watched him play
