I went with Ritola but I'm pretty much going with Ritola/Nyquist/Mursak as my next 3 in no particular order.

Might as well vote for Julien Cayer because no one I vote (this time Jan) ever gets in anyway...

Kind of surprised Nyquist is getting so many votes. IMO, the kids physical tools are going to make it tough for him to be a big producer in the NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE.

I think our Swedish contingent is tilting the poll.

Also... can the four Ritola voters explain to me what makes Ritola such a good prospect? What kind of upside are you seeing with this guy?

Nyquist's physical tools include very good speed and hands, apparently very good hockey sense, and he's not any smaller than someone like Zetterberg and he's bigger than Tatar. He's faster and bigger than Hudler, and if he comes close to Hudler's skill level, he's a fair bet to be at least a 3rd line player with good scoring touch.

He doesn't have to be a big producer in the NHL to be the 4th best prospect. It's doubtful they have 4 guys in the current pipeline that are going to produce more at the NHL level than he will. In any case, we won't really know about his physical tools until he gets some time in GR or Detroit. College scorers sometimes translate to the pros and sometimes they fall on their face.

Like any of these guys, he might not amount to anything as a pro. But his physical tools appear to be as good as anyone else they've got.

I have no idea where the Ritola love is coming from, though.

Im suprised McCollum is getting no love. One bad year and it amazes me around here how much people write off a kid who should be a top prospect for us. I guess we all forgot how bad Mursak was a few years ago and now it seems all is forgotten?

I'm probably voting for him at 5. He's currently 7th on the HF page, so he's likely to move up even after his fairly lousy season.

Why should he move ahead of the Wings' other top prospects, many of whom had very good seasons?

When do we start to see votes for Almqvist? He should deservedly shoot way up this time around.

Ahhhh yes, A2. I'd vote for him just because. But in all actuality, its just a tad too early to vote for him simply because we've only see one great year out of the squirt. Let's see what he does next season before we put him in the top 5.

I'm a HUGE fan of him but I think he's only our 8th-10th best prospect at the moment. Ahead of him are Tatar, Smith, Nyquist, Sheahan, Kindl, Mursak, McCollum and Järnkrok. That still leaves guys like Ferraro, Pulkkinen and Nestrasil out and they have huge potential.

I think our prospect pool got MUCH better after this years draft, because we got like 3 forwards with clear top-6 potential. Actually, last year was really good too and we got some pretty good d-men also.

why should he be top prospect? because being drafted in 1st round?

he sucked last season, he sucked at the WJC...he has a long way to go to climb the ranking. which he might do, but at the moment he's hardly top5.

Almqvist isn't even in our top 10. He's had a good start to his SEL career but he's still light years from being a solid NHL prospect. I'd still rank Nicastro ahead of him at the very least.

Yeah it could be that being just one year out is when all of the prospects for the 2009 draft class look really good but dayum is that looking like a solid draft.

1. Ferraro - the one guy who is struggling but should turn corner.
2. Tatar - looking like a can't miss top 6 guy.
3. Nestrasil - like Ferraro had a rough year but should turn corner.
4. Fournier - they are really high on him at RWC in the prospect section.
5. Jensen - long shot but he's going to college. No real hype on him.
6. Mitchell Callahan - he seems to have a decent shot and he'd be a fan favorite.
7. Almqvist - off to a very good start and fits the Wings m.o. of finding a great player near the end of the draft.

If that draft ends up looking as good in 4-5 years as it does now that would be quite a haul. We'll have to wait and see how things work out.
