Rate our prospects: #1

Now that the draft is over (and since no one ever seems to agree with HF's rankings), who is the #1 prospect for the Blackhawks?

Use the same rules as HF does for prospects, except we'll exempt Jonathan Toews. Polling will close in (EDIT: 3) days. You may recommend a replacement player if you wish.

A lot of good prospects there, but Beach is the only one that has all-star potential

Voted for Beach, but there are 5 or 6 guys there that will probably end up being quality NHLers. I love that we are in this position with so many good prospects. I think I could make the argument for at least Bolland, Kontiola, Crawford, and Hammer (Aliu is still a wildcard too) as our best prospect. Kontiola especially I think is underrated around here.

On the flip side, Dale needs to consider moving some of these players to get some impact players that can help us get deeper in the playoffs THIS YEAR.

I voted for Beach but my second choice would have been Crawford.

I voted for Hammer, since I believe he is the most ready prospect to make the jump to the NHL, and be a regular contributor. I haven't seen Beach play yet though.

We'll get a better idea after the prospect camp on July 7-11.

Hammer. I really like his upside and agree hes probably the most ready along with several other like Bolland. I'll have to see what Beach is all about but his previous jr. stats do project well. Lots of talent knocking on the door.

Beach. I'm not as high on our prospects as a lot of people are.
