1. Tatar
2. Mursak
3. Nyquist
4. Smith
5. Kindl

yeah, i like how nyquist is performing in the NCAA, he's getting some good points there and looks like a good talent.

funny how the goalies don't get any love around here. I know Larsson and McCollum aren't doing well, but surely they are good prospects, no?

I personally went with Ferraro. I like Gus' skill-set but something about Ferraro just really appeals to me.

Same here, but I have a feeling Nyquist will win anyway.

Ferraro's diminished goal scoring prowess in tandem with Nyquist's offensive explosion has Nyquist edging out Landon.

I went with Ritola. He looked alright in his stint w/ Detroit. Either give him a shot or ship him out. How much longer can he play in the AHL?

Add Nicastro or Coetzee. No big deal.

Personally, I always kept the goalies lower on prospect lists because they seem more unpredictable than prospects from other positions.

Nyquist.

He's getting more points this year because he's learned how to generate assists off of shots more often.

Easily Nquist, should've been higher, not that I can really complain about the order thus far.

Add Kolosov.

are either of them better than our current top 1-6 (assuming Nyquist wins this round, and Ferarro follows)?
won't surprise me to see McCollum at #7, and Larsson maybe a few slots behind. it's not that there's no love, it's just that there's less love than for other prospects atm (especially considering the seasons they're having...)

At some point I'm going to lose track of my picks. Stay tuned as it could be tonight.

1. Brendan Smith - DOMINATING his competition. DOMINATING I say!
2. Jan Mursak
3. Tomas Tatar
4. Kindl - Nyquist [the time space continuum gets a little fluxed when I miss one round and my picks are removed from the board, thankyouverymuch]
5. Chicken Parm Jr [otherwise known as young Landon Ferraro]

I suspect I will vote for Tomas McCollum at some point in the future but man has this Griffins season been a kick in the proverbial nuts.

Never mind. I just saw Nicastro get burnt on ESPN top 10 plays.

Go w/ Coetzee.

Oh, I know that, but they aren't even getting mentioned or anything. I have noticed that these past few threads, but I guess a young talented forward has more to show than a goalie.

I think Ritola is waiver eligible next year so he will most likely be on the Wings.

... or not. He will certainly get his shot, but I don't think the Wings need, or even should, carry a player for fear of losing them to the waiver he does not fit into the opening season plans. I do think he will earn a longer look, but I am not sold on this guy as an NHL level player. He has never played at a + in Grand Rapids and has never really had a break out year. His point totals were not bad last year and he is doing OK this season. I think more was expected of him as a shooter. I am on the fence with this guy. No way he can play on a checking/defensive line so the question becomes can he play on the 2nd or 3rd line. I question it, but he didwell in last year's camp and a good center makes all the difference in the world for a player such as him.

I voted for McCollum again. He's barely 20 years old. I'm not willing to dump him just yet.

Don't get me wrong I agree with everything you are say, but it seems like the Wings are pretty high on him and the Wings usually try hard not to lose players on waivers. I don't think he should be on the team but he will most likely be on a NHL team by next season. He didn't look out of place in his call up, he actually looked alot better than he does in GR. I did not expect Ritola to looked as good as he did, but I could say the same about Howard too. Who knows.

Ritola can definitely play on a defensive line. I just hope that he has guys with him who aren't shy about dishing out physical contact.

I was thinking about him playing next season with Hudler. I really hope Huds is stronger and faster because that could be huge! Or big Bert, or Abby!

Datsyuk-Zetts-Cleary
Franzen-Filp-Bert
Hudler-Abby-Ritola
Homer-Helm-Eaves/Miller

I can see Abby just break out on a line with 2 players makers like that. Hopefully he can regain his scoring touch in GR.

No doubt Mursak is doing well now, but should he really be top-5? He just screams of "what have you done for me lately?"
