Rangers Prospect Poll: #10 (Final Top Prospect)

With nearly 50% of the vote, RW Jesper Fasth won round 10. He's probably one of our risers in the coming polls. Third rounder Steven Fogarty took the right to join the poll.

Don't forget to write-in who should be added in the next round. Also would be good to include a discussion/argument on why you voted for a particular prospect.


TOP PROSPECTS

1. LW Chris Kreider
2. D Ryan McDonagh
3. D Tim Erixon
4. RW Christian Thomas
5. D Dylan McIlrath
6. RW Mats Zuccarello
7. LW J.T. Miller
8. LW Carl Hagelin
9. RW Jesper Fasth

Jesper Fasth
Right Wing
Born Dec 2 1991
Height 5.11 -- Weight 176 -- Shoots R

2010-11 HV71 Jonkoping SEL 36 7 9 16 6

"It was impressive to watch him at the World Juniors, and the type of goals he scores, they're not tap-ins around the crease. They are shots that he's making when he's getting them. So we are pretty excited because we think that he's accelerated his growth."
- Gordie Clark in 2011

Poll's not up yet, but I'll already chime in and say Lindberg, add St. Croix.

Voted for Lindberg. He is an excellent player. He was a 2-3 liner for his SEL team playing against adults as an 18 year old in a very difficult Swedish league. The SEL is at least as strong as the AHL and if an 18 year old had 28 points in 82 games in the AHL while being defense-first and dominating on faceoffs, he'd be regarded as a top prospect.

Lindberg deserves the spot in the "Top Prospects" list. He has a decently high ceiling and is decently safe. As a second round pick, he only got better since being drafted.

Add Weise again because of how close he's to making the NHL. At worst he's a 4th line grinder, but as the third highest scorer (per game) in Hartford, he may have the potential to be a third line winger.

Here I went with Valentenko.

I believe he has the tools to be on the roster this season and it's a big year for him. If Del Zotto beats him out it'll be hard pressed to think that he'll have a shot to play on the Rangers at all. He'll most likely be traded at that point IMO. He still has top 4 defensive potential, but can become a safe 3rd pairing player. The reason I take him is because he is the only player not on the list, except Lindberg, that isn't a project at this point. Those players are going to be boom or bust picks, even Lindberg. I'll go safe with Valentenko.

Add Wiese. He'll most likely not get a chance on the big team with the acquisition of Rupp, and already having Avery, Prust, Boyle, and Fedotenko on the roster. If he plays well in the AHL again this season, he'll get a shot with the team next year when I think Avery and Feds won't be retained and be given his rightful shot to be on the team.

There is a pretty big drop-off after #9. Damn.

That's what I said a couple rounds ago. I think the drop off happens after Lindberg, however. Either way, the drop-off is pretty big after the top-10.

And in 6 months, I suspect it will get bigger. A couple kids will graduate and another couple of kids will join the top-10 for having a good season. Then a couple of kids will drop off for having a bad season.

There will be a wide gap from the top 10 to the second 10.

Though I wouldn't expect Fogarty or Yogan to get votes this early, my hunch says they both will be in the top 10 in the next couple years. Voted Tank!

Add McColgan. His upside is WAY higher than St. Croix's.

I don't really think so. Lindberg, Valentenko and Kundratek are all in the same tier as Fasth in my opinion. They are all playing in pro leagues already and Valentenko and Kundratek are probably ready for NHL duty while Lindberg, despite having a lower ceiling maybe, isn't all that far behind Fasth. I think the real drop-off comes after #12. The arbitrary classification in tiers after 10, 20 etc. prospects seems unnecessary and wrong to me.

Had a tough time was not sure Valentenko, Lindberg, Kundratek or Yohan... Think this is a sign of what a great prospect base we have at 10 we have at least 4 prospect that still haev NHL potential.

Went Valentenko

I went for Yogan, but I think out of these prospects its a crapshoot.

Add McColgan, I think he could surprise us.

Kundratek was better than Valentenko last year. Why no love for him?

Add St. Croix.
