Second the add Jones.

Take Klein off of that list. He's not a prospect IMO. Anyone else think this?

by definition he still is a prospect

He has yet to play in 65 games AND he has yet to reach his 24th birthday ... he will be taken off the list this time next year, either way ... and sitting on the bench doesn't constitute "playing in the NHL"

I think Klein should stay because I also think Sulzer should be on this list (add Sulzer btw).

I went with Blum here because he improved his game this year (he is tearing up the WHL), and he reportedly is in the 180s weight wise. If he can add another 15 pounds, he will elevate his prospect status even more in my book. I know its fun to attack this selection, but if there is one thing we do well, it is draft defensemen, especially those that are in the WHL (Franson and Weber come to mind). I love his tenacity and aggressivness, and I think he is a sure-fire blue-chip prospect.

Dang, I don't know why I can't vote. I'd take Pickard here if I could, but it is very close between him and Blum for me, so it really I won't matter who wins for me. Edit: HA! Didn't notice Rinne was still on there. Boy that's tough, I think I'd go with Rinne instead just cause he's closer to the NHL and should become a very good goaltender.

I guess I understand what you are saying re: Klein. But I seriously doubt that any of those left are ranked over Klein in overall prospects. What was the phrase on the first poll? Most NHL Ready? Klein. Definitely and he should be up at #1 then, IMO. But remove him and what we have come to so far is correct IMO.
