Who is the Predators 2nd best prospect?

OK, Colin Wilson was the clear winner of the honor of "Top Prospect", now lets move on to who's the Predators second best prospect?

The poll will remain open for a maximum of 72 hours or until a clear consensus has been reached...

HF Preds Board Top 10 list:

1) Colin Wilson
2) ???

I had to pick Ellis. I know there are those that aren't impressed but I watched him this summer along with Blum and I had to give the edge in potential to Ellis. Blum is ahead of him right now, Blum will have some NHL minutes next year, but Ellis really impressed me with his ice vision, his attitude and the way he took charge in camp. Both of these guys are going to be stars in the NHL.

The only reason I would hesitate with Josi is I need to see him play a season in North America. It was thought that Ville would be something grand and he never adjusted to the game here. I know that there is that risk with any young player. He definitely has the potential, but I have the extra question with him.

This. Josi might be the 2nd best prospect we have. Everything we have heard about him is fantastic. From being a top D-man in a good Swiss league. To making the Swiss Olympic team that is actually a solid team. I'm just a guy who wants to see before he believes. Therefore I will vote Blum. I have always had my concerns about Blum but he seems to be progressing steadily.

Blum. He may even pass Wilson at some point and become just a notch behind Weber/Suter.

Agreed with needing to see Josi on NA ice first. It can make a huge difference.

I generally agree with this. I don't think our organization has ever had new draftee have such a great training camp and be given such big minutes in pre-season. He has great poise and IQ. His size, though, is of great concern to me. It just means he's going to have to work twice as hard to make it.

I don't have any questions regarding tools and talent with Josi (he's significantly faster than Koistinen), but I do wonder how he'll hold up over an 80 game season in the AHL. He has strung together a pretty lengthy series of injuries over the last two years.
