Things look much more interesting from here on out. I'll go with Max Reinhart. There is no reason, after a little AHL seasoning, he can't become the next Adam Henrique. The guy has vision and creativity and is able to read the play extremely well. Excellent passer and offensive player all around. But he's also a great defensive player and has great all around work ethic. I see him as a more polished version of Jankowski and he's my darkhorse to make the team out of camp (may not stay up the whole year).

Gotta ago with T.J. Brodie. He had a pretty impressive rookie season, so there's no doubt he'll improve lots more. I think he could be a top 2-4 defenseman when it's all said and done. (heck, you could call him a top 4 defenseman already.) I think he is the 2nd best Flames prospect, without a doubt.

Im going with Irving here, Brodie is great, but I see Irving making much of of an impact in the future, although, as a goalie thats a given. For my Brodie=Irving, but goaltending is the more important position.

Is Brodie still a prospect? If yes then him.

I still considered him a prospect, otherwise I would've gone with Irving.

I auto-selected Jankowski based on upside, but after clicking submit I realized I should have went with Irving.

As Brodie showed us last season, he's already a pretty damn good puck moving defenceman. I think he's a lock for a top 4 spot.

Even though I love Reinhart, he hasn't quite shown what Brodie has at this point.

My list:

1. Baertschi
2. Brodie
3. Reinhart
4. Jankowski
5. Gaudreau
6. Irving
7. Brossoit
8. Sieloff
9. Ferland
10. Granlund

That is pretty close to my list. I may bump Granlund and Ferland for Horak and/or Nemisz, and bump Gaudreau ahead of Jankowski. Overall pretty solid list though.

Went with Brodie. He has shown us the most of any prospect we currently have at the NHL level. Hard to argue with that.

I think he was referring to the lack of Arnold in the poll.

He's around #6 on my list; I'd like to see him added.

Brodie's more or less running away with this so I'll start a new poll adding Arnold. I agree, he's ahead of some of the guys on the guys already on the poll.
