I went with Tesink. Hope he has a big year to establish himself as a prospect. I'm thinking Beach next as long shot. Could use some more meat on his bones but appears to have some solid hands and has some offensive abilities. Interested to see if he can fight less and develope his game.

When does HF's top 20 list come out? It seems like they skipped the Blues and have moved on to the "players to watch" thing. I'm just curious to compare their list with this one.

Took Tesink. This area of the selections makes me think of the prospect rank-overlooked Ryan Reaves who is now a full-time one-way contract Blue. Someone in this group is going to rise and surprise.

I went with Tesink, as he has a decent possibility to be a 3rd line NHLer. Andronov might have a slight chance to be a top 6 forward in The NHL. But, I think a LOT has to go right for that to happen.

Agreed. I was impressed with him at the camp, but he, like many others, will be caught in the numbers game.

Wait, I was out of the country for over a week and I haven't missed a single poll?? I think we can speed these up. No need to spread them out so far or keeping the voting open so long for each poll IMO.

Went with Tesink again.

See, I figure if we're gonna have a lockout, we need something to keep us occupied. Also, I wanted to make sure you didn't miss anything.

Yeah, I understand the desire to have things to talk about during the lockout (especially topics not specifically about the lockout itself) but if we go all the way I to the 40s (the Blues easily have that many prospects) and we only do approx one per week, this poll process is going to take forever!

I agree with that. There's something about Parayko that I like; I just can't put a finger on what it is. Maybe it's because he's a big offensive defenseman whereas the other big defensemen are defensive-oriented?

Anyway, I voted for Tesink. He's more than earned a spot in the top twenty with his play. He's not a primary scorer, but he'd be an amazing fourth-line player in the NHL.

Parayko intrigues me too but I'd still have Eronin in front of him and possibly Nigro as well. I'm interested to seeing how Parayko does with Alaska-Fairbanks this season though.

I'm surprised nobody has made a case for ANY of our goaltending prospects other than Allen.

I got to admit. Binnington definitely deserves more consideration than we are giving him. He is off to one heck of a start. He's seeing 34 shots a game, has a 2.23 goals against and has a .934 save pct. That's impressive. I just think after all the years of hyped goalies that we focus more on who puts points on the board. Seems like forwards generally get more attention.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I was under the impression that Binnington was a legitimate prospect but haven't heard a peep about him from anybody.

I think both Binnington and Lundstrom have decent NHL potential but goalies are such crapshoots. Both are just a bit outside my personal top 20.

I expect Lundstrom to make Sweden's WJC team this year.

I'd put Tremblay in that category, as well.

I think in a nutshell, all draft choices are crapshoots. The Blues do think enough of him to give him a contract. Several folks from that draft do not have contracts, but are higher on our list. I think the Blues may value him more than what we do.

Both Binnington and Lundstrom turned out pretty well in NHL 12, so hopefully the same happens in real life.
