Cool. How deep are you planning on taking these polls?
My original plan was to do it through 10 - and I also thought that would be the only relevant prospects per se. But it looks like some pretty good prospects might spill over, so I could go to 15 or 20.
I mean, how many of you will be able to give relevant decisions as far as guys like Cliche vs. Campbell and such? It's up to that.
Both these guys have so much we would wish from them! They get compared to alot of NHL talented guys! But had to go with CT on this one as well, much as I loved getting Jimmy Neutron and I hope he makes a big splash with us in a couple years! But just Colten I expect to make it at least as a bottom pairing guy!
And to be honest I think he has the potential to be just about everything you could hope from a big rugged defensemen, I have seen his shot and it could be something special with work and a ton of practice... About the only thing he may never bring is rushing the puck. That said if he learns to pass when he is doubled and make a good first pass out of the zone... Wellp he could just be a god send to us for 10 years or more!
Tuebert is a fairly one-dimensional defenseman. Not that that dimension isn't important to the club, or that he won't be good at it, but Loki is a better prospect right now - and with a higher ceiling.
Loktionov may ultimately be the better player but it is ludicrous to consider him a better prospect than Teubert at this point.
Care to back this up with some actual information before you make misguided, misinformed judgments about a couple of players you've probably seen play five times total, collectively, and maybe just once or twice in person?
Loktionov. He's coming off of an impressive first season in America. Teubert needs to settle down and play his game in juniors next year. All considerations taken, Loktionov has the chance to be a special player, and is going to be a year ahead Teubert in development after next season.
