My vote only counts as much as yours. And it reminds me who I voted for.

I know, but I felt left out without having anyone to add lol.

Ironically though Mauldin's had more of an impact already than more than half of the guys on this list. And when all is said and done, Mauldin may have played more games at the end of his career than 5 or so guys we pick here.

Hishon. Most talented, and I get the feeling he's going about his recovery the right way by not trying to rush it.

I have never seen him play, except for a few highlights, but it doesn't seem like many people consider Scarbossa one of our top prospects.

Judging from stats alone he seems pretty impressive.

But my choice is either Hishon or Siemens, I guess I'm going with Siemens.

I would say the reason is that Sgarbossa doesn't scream 1st line/pairing talent. Siemans and Elliott both have the talent to be a 1st pairing defender if they develop perfectly (Barrie could be argued but I see him as a #3 PP QB sort of player). Hishon is a bit confusing to me, but he has 1st line talent, but it is very unlikely he reaches that at this point.

I see Sgarbossa's potential to be a top 6 player (2nd line) with good hands and grit. Maybe a 25g 35a 60p player in his prime if everything falls in place. More likely he ends up a 20g 25a 45p. His style of play will be hard to translate directly to the NHL with his size and may take a few years to develop. In other words, he is a project to become a top 6 player. That isn't the type to be a top prospect.

Fair enough. Like I said, I haven't seen his style, but those kind of numbers are impressive. That's why I thought he had a higher potential
