Is it really necessary to add prospects like Tochkin? Even if we're going all the way to #20, there are already enough options in the poll.

I think Tochkin might be my last add, I can't even think of anyone else that's still a prospect.

Looks like McNally is running away with this one.

Need some comparisons between Mallet, Labate, Sauve, Price, Tommernes, Sweatt, Anderson, Polasek, and ??? to round out the top 20.

Pretty deep pool imo.

McNally, followed by any of these three: Friesen, LaBate, Mallet (personally, i'd go 2,3,1 in order)

Went with Labate actually; like his combination of skill and size and the versatility factor. He could develop into a top 6 forward, or would even be useful as a 3rd liner too.

Patrick McNally will win this probably. Very high ceiling based on his play so far.

Knew McNally was going to win this vote anyways but you're bang on. Labate is a 6'4 centerman that played as a true freshman and had 20 points on one of the most difficult programs to get ice time on. Tons of potential in this kid.

I think Price should be in the next conversation. From reports he has a very strong all around game.

I went with Mallet over McNally. He has a rare combination of size, skill, and physicallity. I realize he was an "out of left field" pick, but I've liked it since day 1. He was draft eligible in 2010, and this past season he outscored 1st round draft picks from that same year. If he can build on what he just did in the Q and translate it to the AHL, wow, will he be a good player. It was a toss up for me though, McNally could be a great defenseman.

McNally again...should be higher up IMO,but info is scarce and he's still a long way away from the NHL.

Kinda disappointing how Sauve has fallen and will be lucky to make it into the top 15.On the plus side,it's a good sign how much our drafting and prospect signings have improved during the Gillis regime.

Next time we do this we should specify what we are voting on:

a) closest to playing in the NHL, or

b) potential to be a great player, or

c) most likely to be an NHL regular, regardless of level ....

because all of these criteria seem to have been argued ...

It'd be silly to specify and focus on just one of those items. All factors ought to be taken into consideration, not just who is the most NHL ready. For example, I feel Sauve is NHL ready to at least be a 7th Dman. But I would not consider voting for him in the next 4 spots.

Focusing on just one aspect skews the list. Some may value one aspect more than another, but potential and readiness should both play a factor in your voting.

The fact McNally is not getting his due before now says something about our drafting the last several years.

He is a good prospect with a high ceiling, and certainly someone I would not call a "boom or bust" player.

The problem I'm having now is comparing and ranking a guy like Friesen, who I see as a very good chance to become a checking line centre very soon, with a guy like McNally who has the skillset everyone wants in a D man, with a good frame, but an ETA of ~2015. I mean, I just don't know how to say he's a "better" prospect than Friesen when Friesen could have 2 or 3 NHL seasons under his belt by then, while McNally could be joining the team post Sedins. Anything could happen between now and then. Hoverboards could be invented!

If it's closest to making the NHL, class of 2009 and 2010 get a clear advantage. For me, b) is the main criteria, c) is a tie breaker, and a) isn't really a consideration because draft year shouldn't determine how good a prospect is.

That is why I thought Tanev was way too highly rated, and why I'm picking this year's 2nd rounder over 4th rounders from previous years.
