When was Boyle added to the vote? I would rank him higher than some of these guys.

He was just added this round. Nobody voted for him before. It's not my choice, it's people writing in who they want added.

I am not getting why there's no love for Nigel Williams. The kid is 6-foot-4 230 pounds, so he's huge.

In the OHL, he had 36 points in 46 games and then 46 points in 67 games. In those years, he had 92 and 100 PIM.

He had a very solid season in the OHL with 21 points and 55 PIM in 70 games. I haven't seen him play, but he got decent points for someone his size, so he must have decent skill for a big, tough defenseman.

He may not have the best hockey sense, but I think that with the right coaching, he may become a top-4 defenseman.

A similar argument applies to Valentenko joining the voting. I think he should be added.

i don't get how Gilroy ended up 7th????He should easily be in the top 3. He's going to make an impact long before MDZ and Grachev.

I think fans are killing prospects they aren't familiar with: McD, Gilroy, Nigel Williams, Valentenko.

I will confess that it's been an issue for me. Hard for me to vote for a guy like Williams that I really don't know much about over a guy like Sauer that I've been following for years. It's probably a bit illogical, but I don't know how I can get around it.

I think that at some point, you have to go with stats and scouting reports. When a 6-4 230 pound guy can put up almost a point per game in the OHL and have decent offensive numbers in his rookie season in the AHL, he must be doing something right.

His size and numbers aren't dissimilar to those of Jeff Beukeboom at the same age in both the OHL and the AHL. I am not saying he'll be as good, but he has reasonable potential.
