2012 Minnesota #6 Prospect

Johan Larsson barely got a majority with 50.43% of the vote but cruised by the rest of the field to claim fifth.

2012 HF Wild Prospect Rankings
1. Mikael Granlund
2. Jonas Brodin
3. Charlie Coyle
4. Mathew Dumba
5. Johan Larsson

Now the battle for sixth looks to be between Jason Zucker and Matt Hackett. Will this providence finally get his guy on the board? Will a goalie go this early again? Will Zack Phillips get any support? We'll find out.

New guy is Nick Seeler. As always, polls are up for two days. Even if I'm not around.

Hackett for me, it was a toss up between him and Zucker but I'm going with Hack for this poll.

I'm still not sold on him ever having a top-6 presence, but I'll go Zucker.

Gotta take Philips, 6'1, 185 lbs right handed shooting centerman with great offensive instincts and competes like hell ....thou Im big on Bulmer and Zucker as well, just like this kids long term potential/ we have enough chip and chase guys, like his patience with puck and vision.............certainly no bad picks, lots of great prospects.

Funny thing is we are so deep, case could be made for guys like Bulmer and Zucker who have already played some games at the NHL level to be much much higher.
Great time to be a Minny fan....Best !

Bulmer.

Love the grit and agitating he brings. And seems like he has some scoring touch too. Would love to him become Burrows like player.
That's why I hope that he spends 2 seasons in AHL to polishing his scoring.

Bulmer. IMO he's going to an excellent NHL 3rd Liner for a long time. The way I see it, the odds of him succeeding long term in the NHL are greater than Zucker or Hackett's. You could argue Zucker has a higher upside but I think he also has a higher chance to become another Wellman.

As far as goalies go - who the hell ever knows??? They come and go so quickly, from the greatest to goats in the blink of an eye.

Hackett.

I am not sold on Zucker. I mean, I see a great 3rd line player that has great speed, a very good fore-checking game, brings tons of character, and a sneaky shot. But I don't project him to bring tons of offense and seen as a regular top six forward. More of a good 2nd liner/great 3rd liner.

With Hackett, he's won at every level, and that includes the NHL. I think he has starting potential, and I like that alot more.

wanted Hacks at #4, so gotta vote for him until he gets it.

Although...I love the support Zucker is getting on here. After hearing his quotes from this past summer, I think he'll have the attitude/work ethic needed to really break through in the NHL. The guy talks like he will work his rear-end off until he becomes an All-Star. We'll see if the has the skill to match the work-ethic.

Like I said in the previous poll, I wanna see a little more of Zucker (whether it be Houston or the Wild) before I make my opinion of him.

I see Zucker as somewhere between Wellman and Parise. I don't think he'll ever score like Zach, but he will have a successful NHL career and score enough to be a very good all-around player.

If Bulmer can continue to improve his offense, with everything else at his disposal, I gotta give him the nod.

So.. somewhere between a career ahl'er or an elite scorer in the nhl?

Come on Hackett Supporters! This is a very close poll, we need you to vote Hackett!
