Went with Glennie here. Stransky at #11 for me, although it wouldnt surprise me to see him make another huge jump into the top 5 next year.

This will be a runaway for Glennie, torn between Bystrom and Stransky at 11.

I went with Glennie, and my next three (in no particular order) will be Guptill, Ritchie, and Stransky.

I'm thinking Guptill 13th, and I'm still trying to decide between Ritchie and Stransky after Glennie. Stransky has proven more on the ice, but Ritchie is a more complete player with a better shot (many at development camp said Stransky has significant work to do on his shot while Ritchie was considered one of the better shots in camp). Also, Stransky has good puck protection skills (often mentioned as his best attribute ... and a big reason for the Jagr comparison) which is an important skill in the NHL.

I think I'm leaning toward Ritchie next.

After these guys, I'm excited about Ludwig Bystrom, and he'd be 14 for me at this point. He doesn't have great size or strength, but he's willing to compete physically. He's losing most of those battles now, but as he adds strength he'll win more and more. Plus, as we're seeing with Oleksiak, it's not always easy to teach physical play. Bystrom's willingness to get dirty despite playing a skilled, two-way game is not always common.

Ritchie here. Think he's got more potential than Glennie, but next season may change my mind depending on his season in the A.

I've got Guptill at #11, just looking at his stats alone compared to R. Smith's and Chiasson's shows some serious promise, and I just think he'll fit in really well one day.

Glennie finally at #12.

I actually have Molin next at 11, which judging from the voting and comments is way off the board, but yeah. I think we've got a special player here. I rate him highly in long-term potential and ceiling which overrides his distance from the NHL and the North American game in general.

Guptil's numbers were impressive in his Junior year, and I think in a few years he'll be comparable to R. Smith and follow a similar path. He shouldn't be much lower than R. Smith was.

Going Guptil, followed by Glennie, Ritchie, then Stratsky.

Guptill is next for me...

Ritchie has a good game, but I want to see some more from him offensively.

Stransky needs to continue his development curve and he will move up quickly.

Bystrom has a lot of potential, but I have yet to see enough from him to put him over Guptill/Stransky/Ritchie

Voting Glennie here, seems like the obvious choice.

After that it's a toss up between Guptill, Bystrom and Molin for me. I also really like Ritchie's game and I think he can find his offensive touch still. Stransky is also in the mix somewhere. Very deep prospect pool for the Stars.

Stransky for me, but it looks like Glennie will run away with this, so Stransky should go #11.

With you on Molin. At the development camp, he differentiated himself from the others for me. Perhaps it's just because I prefer his style of game (patient, puck control, passing, vision). To me, guys like him are more rare than players with other skills (sniper, power game, speed, etc.).

In fact, I pattern my (very limited) ice hockey game after guys like him and Ribeiro.

Safe to say Glennie has taken this one.

He's next for me too but to be fair it's mostly based off scouting reports and gut feel...
One player who I have actually seen a decent amount of who I seem to be at odds with most of the comments is Ritchie... I think he struggled for most of the year and only started to pick it up when he didn't need to be the guy on Niagara... Against tougher defensive matchups he didn't seem willing to go the extra mile offensively... Personally, I think he's regressed a bit and while there is still potential in him I don't think he should be any higher ranked than he was last year especially as our prospect pool has gotten a lot stronger. I personally have him after all 3 of our second rounders this year
