Howse is probably a long shot, but if he ever finds his toolbox...

I went with Howse, even though he came in out of shape last year he started to show up at the end of the year. Still lots of potential in him.

I can't vote on my phone but I'd go with Howse here. I'd bet he shows up like a different player this year on a mission, otherwise he'll be an after thought of the Flames and he knows that.

Crazy how much Wahl has fallen off the radar.

I haven't seen him play, but I figure we must have drafted Wotherspoon in the 2nd round for a reason, so he'll be my pick.

Hard to argue with him either. I really hope Aliu has a break thru year of sorts.

If I could vote, but since I'm too new, I would go with wotherspoon. Watched a couple Winterhawks, Oil kings games from the whl finals and he appeared to be solid.

Wotherspoon. Had Alui not scored in his only 2 GAMES he wouldn't even be considered at all, I still don't even consider him a decent prospect for the fact he has only 2 games with us under his belt and the rest of his time has been AHl and unspectacular, no way he should beat out a second round pick.

How is Wortherspoon ahead of guys like Bouma? Are people voting based on ceiling?

To be honest he is my least favorite pick out of the Feaster era so far. He is pretty big but not huge, he isn't afraid to play the body but doesn't hit alot, he doesn't have great offensive instincts, he is positionally sound but not overly fast. I see him as a new version of Pardy which I don't value that highly.

Hell 2 games in the NHL is better than 60% of all prospects in a given year. Aliu not only played in the NHL, he played exceptionally well. A player that got 3pts in 2 games certainly deserves to play a third ****ing game lol.

2 games more than Wotherspoon might ever get.

I think everyone's reasons are their own.

For me I don't consider Bouma a prospect anymore.

Hopefully, he was apparently pretty lazy this year. Next year will be really make or break for Howse I think.

Apparently I'm the tie breaker on this one. Wotherspoon. Top four potential someday, nothing but praise so far at the development camp and from his coach in Portland. The fact that he's fallen this far is a joke.

I like Aliu as much as the next guy, but come on, we got him for scraps for a reason. Two months of hockey in the A and a few games in the NHL doesn't elevate him into our top twenty prospects. If those few games mattered Brett Sutter was going to be the next Eric Lindros for us. The fact that he's getting votes over Bouma? Laughable.
