Johan Larsson for me, he might be special.

Voted for Coyle.

So awesome that we can finally have debates about our prospect pool. 3-10 is a crap shoot IMO, they all could end up being studs.

First two were easy, but this one is less so. For me it's between Larsson, Coyle, and Bulmer. I think I'm actually going to choose Bulmer on this one, just because of how good he looks right now, as opposed to upside.

Besides, who are we to tell him he's just a grinder?

If you rank on ceiling alone Brodin wouldn't be your #2. It's safe to say Dumbas ceiling is much much higher as far as defenseman go and Coyle Zucker and Phillips even all have that "ceiling" as a star. I not so sure Brodin is that.

But don't get me wrong either a Brodin is my number two based solely on he is the best bet prospect we have behind Granlund

Right on. What's eve more exciting is the sheer depth it gives us. We have a little bit of everything in the prospect pool

Not saying I don't have high hopes for Bulmer... just have higher hopes for those with even more potential.
So based on that theory Bulmer fits in somewhere behind the Dumbas Coyles Zuckers Larssons on thi list?

I'd hafto agree. An I'm a huge Bulmer fan!

Reasonable. Pretty much how I have it except with Bulmer swapped with Phillips.

I think Phillips has more upside than Zucker (or, bold statement, Coyle for that matter), but he's also much less likely to reach that untapped potential.

Don't understand the few people on here that have this idea that Coyle isn't what was promised.
All you had to do was watch any of his Q games last season to see.

No, not the Wild prospect scrimmage.

Half the players at the camp were no bigger than the Q players he faced, he simply decided not to use his (and this was new info) now 220 lb frame to beat the snot out of our own prospects. He could have man handled anyone of those guys, and I promise you he didn't out of lack of physicality.

Coyle has a rare combo of being a good skater, with good hands, good vision, gritty, has a good shot (notice nothing is great, but nothing is lacking) and is BIG. Thinking on it, he is great at protecting the puck, can play defense, and plays with great work ethic. He at the very least will be a 2nd line player in the NHL in one-two years.

What's Coyle's potential really? If he could turn into a 30-30 player I think I'd be happy. 2nd line RW PWF?

Same here... and I think I was the most vocal about wanting Dumba at the draft as well. It's not a knock against Dumba that I have him at #5, it's props to all those above him... Granlund, Brodin, Coyle and Larsson.

I could see him easily reaching top line RW Power Forward... quality Power Forwards are hard to come by, and he looks to be a great one in the making IMO. Future NHL All-Star.

I went Coyle because I think he can be a 30g power forward. He has size, work ethic, speed. Questions are if he's got the hockey IQ and the hands. Leaning yes obviously.

Zucker I didn't see enough at all from his stint last year to think he'll be a big time success. He could be a shorter version of Setoguchi or could break out and be a 30+ goal scorer. The fact he adapted quickly to the NCAA is promising but we'll know halfway through the year much more about his potential NHL career.

Dumba is a ways off now. He's got a lot of talent and looks great but he's still pretty raw, compared to the more polished and proven Granlund, Brodin, Coyle, Larsson, and Zucker.

Nope. I have him at #6 as well. That's not a knock on him- more of a praise for our other prospects. And I wanted Dumba months and months before the draft like Talon.

I think 30+30 is reasonable for him. I see him as the RW on the Parise/Koivu line in a couple years, so he'll be in a very good position to succeed.
