2012 Minnesota #9 Prospect

In the battle between Brett Bulmer and Zack Phillips, Bulmer wins the vaunted title of being the 8th-best Wild prospect with 57.41%.

2012 HF Wild Prospect Rankings
1. Mikael Granlund
2. Jonas Brodin
3. Charlie Coyle
4. Mathew Dumba
5. Johan Larsson
6. Jason Zucker
7. Matt Hackett
8. Brett Bulmer

Not putting up a new guy just because the last one had 100 votes for two people and only four received votes. If someone needs one, well the poll is only open for two days.

Phillips. I still take him over Bulmer. Top six forward over a 3rd/4th liner.

Still 100% at 12 but I expect Lucia's mom fan to vote for him again.

EDIT: 13!

I also expect Haula to get at least one vote.

First vote for someone else will be because that person wants to be "that guy", "give them some love", or "even things out a little bit"

i'd throw a vote out to Haula because his name would be the most fun to shout when he scored. HOLLA!!!!

Phillips.

Then Lucia/Seeler, depending on who wins that coin toss when the time comes. Haula's not an NHL prospect, in my opinion.

I think he's come along a lot further than expected though. I don't think he's as much of a long shot as he used to be.

Doesn't do enough to have a defined slot on an NHL roster.

We all agree? That's no fun.

The only downfall of writing about Gopher hockey is trying to come up with new Haula puns.

That's up to the coaches to give him a defined slot on a roster. He just has to put himself into position to force the issue. Which he has slowly been plugging away at, improving as a player far more than many expected, and has even Fletcher thinking they might have found someone for the NHL in the 7th round (you did see that Webisode I assume?).

Does he clearly project to a role? Not really, but that's because he is a tweener in style is all. Lots of players don't fit into a slot all neat a perfect yet still end up getting the proper NHL roles defined as they progress.

I'll worry about where he'd slot in when the time comes. Right now I'm just impressed with his development thus far... no longer just some random 7th rounder that we know we'd never see. He has a legit chance of actually becoming a player for the Wild now.

It's sad that this one has made it longer at 100% than Granlund's poll did. His SHOULD have been 100%.
