DeWolf? No, hell no!

Boogaard is an enforcer.

Hannula is a grinder, a dime a dozen.

Cavosie hasn't made that important step up yet.

Heid yes

Beckett might need some work.

O'Sullivan too! I forgot him.

Marc-Andre Fleury, definitely.

Not in the NHL though it's Ryan Whitney.

*sighs*

Cavanaugh is doing fine. Almost made the roster. Brust did pretty good at the rookie tournament, the critics are split though. Berzins did fine last year. Had stiffer competition this year, should be fine. Eckerblom is finally getting a chance to shine in the SEL. Irmen is fine, four years away.

Your an idiot too Pierre. The Wild have a horrible lineup but haven't moved up anyone from their AHL teams. They have a very solid group of rookies coming through.

Funniest thing is you haven't even mentioned Koivu's name in this thread.

The Avs most highly-touted prospect was Jonas Johansson. Now that he's been traded to Washington, I believe the honor falls upon Keith Ballard, a defenseman currently playing for the Minnesota Golden Gophers.

A surprise out of our system may be goaltender Peter Budaj. Though we're grooming Phil Sauve as our goalie of the future, I think it'll be Budaj in our net in a couple of years. He's currently leading the Hershey Bears to their best start since 1982.

Koivu, Koivu is a toss up at the moment. He's kind of turning out to be like his brother in that he kept getting injured but he has shown flashes of his brilliance. Size wise and ability wise Koivu is great but skating wise and already had a couple injuries, well it's split.

I like Koivu but I think he'll be in between what everyone wants him to be. He'll be solid but for the moment, he needs a lot of work and some guys already have more than he has in camp.

Also, unlike Ruutu and other Finnish players, he hasn't dominated the league yet (could he? Probably not should we judge him on that? No) but the thing is that is what everyone looks at and that's numbers. Number wise the kid isn't that hot. Playing wise, he's pretty good.

Outside of the NHL, I'd definitely say Ryan Whitney for the Penguins.

For Carolina, outside of the NHL.. I'd go with either Danny Richmond or Cam Ward.

Pick one

i thinik pushkarev is overrated by many kings fans. we havne't even seen him once and you're are callin him our best prospect? as to best prospect, it goes to grebeshkov no doubt. but upside, i would have to say boyle just out of size and potential skill. if he can utilize all that, he can become a dominate force in the nhl for years. pushkarev, on the other hand, he maybe a top 6er, but not a dominating force as u seme tobe making him out to be

I'm guessing he didn't consider Pitkanen a prospect anylonger since he is now a fixture with the Flyers.
