Needs an injury free season.
He's only 21 and can play at the pro level.

I see him as a potential Samuelsson type if he can keep building his game.
Samuelsson didn't crack the NHL until age 24/25.

I went with Corrado but man, a Connauton - Corrado pairing would be so sick, two howitzers, both can skate - Connauton is really fast - , both can play physical, both fight. It would be awesome.

I went with Mallet ... probably a few years away, but I think he is going to be a steal.

That's my impression as well. Just guessing but if you don't make quick and good decisions and aren't mobile/quick, it must catch up to you in the AHL and even more so in the NHL - the game is so darned fast.

Nope. People seem to be only judging on the players ceiling, i look at it like who is more valuable as a prospect. Somebody with more likeliness to succeed also has an effect on my voting. There are still major flaws that wont' allow alot of these players to be regulars in the NHL (if even an nhl player at all), i dont believe the same can be said about Friesen. I think his attributes make him an easier transition into the nhl

I bet if we went back to the voting with Hansen before he played in the AHL, people would have said the same thing as you just did "joking?"

Corrado needs to score at almost a PPG pace next year in the OHL if we're going to consider him such a good prospect.

Not eligible until next year. He played in the AHL for a few games once his OHL season was done, that's why there are Wolves highlights of him.

Mallet, I like his upside, and his physical style is better suited to this 'garage league' that the NHL is deteriorating back into.

Im reaching? Im sorry but we're talking about rank 7 in our prospect list, most prospects dont even go onto make the nhl. Alot of these guys left have big flaws in their game, corrado may not but like i said, corrado might be a better prospect but since i haven't seen him as much, i have to go with the next guy.

There is many people stating that he will be an nhl player.

Reaching? Hardly.

I voted for Corrado. He impressed everyone in his first training camp with the Canucks, including management, as he got a contract right away. He followed it up with a very strong season in the OHL, which, at least statistically, was better than expected. His opportunity with the Wolves was very brief, but again he impressed. Nothing has been proven, obviously, but to me he's looking like a steal, and I wouldn't be surprised at all if he ranked much higher when we conduct this poll again next year.

If, during preseason, Corrado looks like he's already passed Sauve and Connauton on the depth chart, do the Canucks just send him back to junior anyway? Do they keep him for nine games and then send him back? Do they keep him, give him sheltered minutes in selected games, hope he's selected for the world juniors, and plan on his having developed enough to be making a regular contribution by the end of the year? I know, I'm getting way ahead of myself, but it's July. And Corrado shoots right.

I'm liking our potential bottom 6 C's of the future. Gaunce and Friesen. Going to be awesome if everything goes accordingly.
