Don't know if he has been mentioned already, but I think Joonas Järvinen will be great. He plays good game all around, he's big and I think his style of play is great for North American style of play.

He is highly skilled for his age with good speed and has an excellent awareness on the ice. Not many 6'4 forwards can move and handle the puck like this kid. Once he gets to BC next year he will be comparative to a Jimmy Hayes style of play.

My vote goes for Brendan Gallagher. The kid brings so much heart to each game. Plus he has a lot of tools to become a great player just need to adjust playing with his small frame in the NHL

I'm not sure Vatanen would qualify for this thread. He's very highly touted, and plenty of people see star potential in him. There's just a bust factor there too, when you consider his D game, and his size. He's more of a boom or bust prospect, than a dark horse type of player.

Kurker and Nieves probably have higher upsides but really REALLY loved his all-round game and huge frame. Also loved the way he progressed over the season; really started to show offense at the end of the season. I was jumping in my room when my favorite team picked him!

Reid Boucher reminds me of Chris Kunitz. Don't see a star in him.

Brian Dumoulin. Liked him even before he became a Penguins prospect. Known him for years. Great size. Long reach with his stick, which makes him an awesome poke checking machine. Makes smart crisp passes on the tape. Can be physical. Is positionally sound. He's the complete package! He's ahead of Simon Despres and Joe Morrow from the looks of things. Not surprised. Potential Top pairing defenseman that could surprise on the scoresheet as will as dominate in his own end. All he has to work on is his shot and how much he uses it.

Edit: I would say they are close, him and Despres.

I also love Eddie Lack. Anyone who knows me, is aware of my love for the guy these past few years. Great east-to-west coast game. Very big goalie that covers up a lot of real estate. Isn't afraid to go out of the net to challenge shooters. Often gets caught off guard retreating back, and makes smart plays with the pucks. Very agile and fast on his feet for a guy with his frame. Confident, and almost cocky. He's going to be a top 5 NHL starter one day. Many see NHL-ready goalie. I see superstar NHL starter.

In the Jets prospect pool:
Last year I would of said Ivan Telegin, but he's starting to get recognized.
I think Adam Lowry will have one big year in the NHL where he'll be a solid above average 2nd liner and surprise many... but he'll need to get a lil' less heavy footed before then.

As a Blues fan, I'm going to go with Dmitrij Jaskin. He's a big powerforward (6'3", 193 lbs. with the frame to grow even more) with a lot of skill to compliment his style. There's been questions about his motivation, and he struggled a ton last year, but he's really picked up his pace in the QMJHL, and it looks like the smaller North American rink suits him much better than the bigger European rink.

I personally see him as our fourth best forward prospect (which isn't bad when you have Tarasenko, Schwartz, and Rattie as your first three), and while people tend to hype those three a lot, I think Jaskin's going to be a stud as well.
