From the #4 thread, but this is my reasoning for picking Eric O'Dell.

This kid is likely going to get overlooked, but I think he has the potential to be a top 6 forward in the NHL. When O'Dell entered the OHL with Sudbury (2007-2008), not the highest of scoring teams over the last few years, he put up very, very impressive numbers and demonstrated some very nice offensive tools. In 26 OHL games, he notched 14 goals and 32 points. Which turned out to be impressive enough to get him selected 39th overall by Anaheim. What is pretty amazing about that is he was just 9 picks shy of being a 1st round pick... and he played just 26 OHL games that year.

The next two years (2008-2009 and 2009-2010,) O'Dell continued impressive on mediocre Sudbury teams with back to back 30+ goal seasons and close to the 70 point mark.

Last season, his overage year in Sudbury was supposed to be his best yet, but missed time due to heart issues. He had a hole in his heart, something he was born with. He missed half the season last year but when he did return, he returned in great fashion potting 20 goals in 39 games and a total of 44 points.

I rememeber O'Dell coming to town last year. Only reason I do remember him was because he wore #91 and was the best player on the ice. Until looking the other day and seeing he was that guy wearing #91, I didn't know. I remember him to this day. Didn't know his name or much about him, but looking back I remember him. He was dominant.

In my opinion, O'Dell stands a good chance of becoming a top 6 forward at the NHL level, and if not that, a real good 3rd line forward. This kid has the tools, I have no doubt about that. I think he'll surprise.

O'Dell is a much more prolific offensive player than Cormier. And while I don't simply go by offense, it's interesting that these 2 are from the same 2008 draft class, O'Dell went 39th and Cormier went 45th.

I'm a firm believer Eric O'Dell is a fine prospect, and one thats high end potential is a top 6 forward.

Telegin, I think he could develop nicely.

I think it's between Kulda, Machacek, and Telegin.

I voted for Kulda because he has been solid in the AHL and just played (although he got kicked out) of the World Championships.

Could be a solid 5-7 D Man soon.

Telegin for me. I won't be surprised if he moves up these rankings in the near future.

I'm going with Spencer Machacek. I think this year is his make it or break it season. Three years of AHL experience along with 12 games in the NHL says to me that this is his last year as a bonafided prospect. If he doesn;'t make it this year, he might just be on the road to permanent AHLer.

Sorry Guerzy, that hole in the heart thing that O'Dell experienced scares me abit. Had the same thing as a child and I can see how that might effect him. It may be nothing for him, but I'd like to see another year in junior to assess his standing.

At 21 years old, O'Dell has no more junior years available. He'll either be in the AHL or another developmental league like the ECHL next year.

O'Dell, Telegin, Machacek and Maxwell were all drafted in rounds 2-4. All of them put up points in Junior, but Machacek and Maxwell have already proven themselves in the AHL as well (O'Dell and Telegin very well could, but haven't gotten a chance yet).

For that reason, I like later round prospects that have proven themselves in the AHL (Postma, Machacek, Maxwell, Kulda, etc) over ones that have only proven themselves in Junior thus far.

Crap, didn't realize O'Dell was already 21. My bad. Guess I meant let's see how he does in St. John's to assess how he performs.

Add Austen Brassard. I think he was a steal in the 5th round for Winnipeg. He brings the elements of toughness, grit, size and character. I hope he can continue to develop his scoring and on ice vision this year in the OHL.

o'dell could very well end up being a 2nd line center. he's a project, but one worth staying the course on.

it was a battle for me between him and telegin, but he wins it based on the fact that he's more developed right now.

add jordan samules-thomas.

Poll was closed before I got a chance to vote. It would have been for Machacek.

Add Brennan Serville and I second the add of Samuels-Thomas. He's an interesting prospect on a horrible, albeit improving, team.
