Also, would you guys be interested in doing a midseason one of these in, say, January?

Went with Walters for no other reason than that I've seen other people talk about him on the previous editions.

Going with Peluso again. He's got a good shot of being a 4th liner and is a lot closer to the NHL, thus a lot more predictable, than most of the other remaining options.

Also considered Nigro and Walters.

Peluso, appears he would be called up if Reaves got hurt. (if there was actually NHL hockey)

Yes would like a January voting update.

Walters next.

Went with potential in Max Gardiner. A 6'3" centerman who has playmaking ability, decent skating for his size, and plenty of offensive potential? Count me in. He stumbled last year, but I think that his college season more than makes up for it. All he has to do is keep on his current track and get stronger and more physical. If he does that, I really think that he'll prove to be a late-bloomer steal for us.

I went with Peluso. He's likely to be the first one ready for The NHL. He doesn't have the most 2-way potential, but is closest to reaching his. I think that probably one or two of the young goalies will end up being more valuable to The Blues than he will be, but choosing them now is a rediculously long shot (so much can happen with them between now and their 25-27th birthdays).

Went with Walters. I don't think there is much difference between Peluso, Gardiner or Walters. Depends on what you give the most value. Potential wise, it would have to be Gardiner being able to crack the top 9. Peluso could play his role in the NHL, but it remains to be seen whether he would be a liability on the ice. Walters style of play intrigues me. If he can develop and bring that to the NHL level, then we have ourselves one nasty defenseman to play against. I think every defense needs someone who can bring that element.

I really think Cundari is decent, so I would vote for him.

Size isn't so good, but had a great year in 10/11, he just had an off year last year with injuries. This is a make it or break it year for him.

I think there is a LOT of difference among all 3. Walters has the potential to be a very solid defensive defenceman in The NHL. IF he reaches his potential of being a solid #4 or, possibly, even #3 (despite maybe scoring only 10-17 points per year), he'll likely be more valuable to The Blues than Peluso or Gardiner.

yea, I agree. I think play wise and potential wise each one of those three is different. Play style wise, Gardiner is a center with decent size, and can use that to his advantage. He played a solid two-way game for the Saints in the USHL last year. I think Gardiner has potential to be a taller Ryan Johnson type player; someone who won't score much, but uses their specific skill set to their advantage. Peluso is a tough guy who won't be more than a 4th liner. He does offer decent ability to get in front of the net, but I do not think he will differ from other tough guys in the league. I'm not as high on Walters as a lot of people are here. Yea, he plays a nasty D game, but I do not think that will translate to the pros. His +/- is terrible, and he over commits way too much.

I voted for Cundari, but I think Gardiner is a close second. I was impressed with Barriball last year in his AHL stint, but I think his age will limit him.

I just think Walters. Peluso, Beach, SDR at best are 4th line role players. Walters may not pan out but neither might any others by prospect #25. If he does pan out he's Jackmanesque. That's better than a 4th liner and I see relatively little distinction between likelihood of being an impact NHLer among the choices.

I should have been more specific... I meant as far as slotting 1 0f 3 in at the 25 spot, not the type of player they are. I really couldn't argue over one being #25 over the other. Depends on what you are looking for. I think they all are blips on the perimeter of the radar screen in a bunch compared to what is in front of them and behind them.
