2.Armia(seriously underrated goal scorer)
3.Foligno(huge man crush here)
4.Pysyk(and im eating huge crow here cuz a year ago he was the center piece of every deal I proposed).
9.Flynn (if he counts)
dang being a rochester native who has seen every game this year....forgot about tropp on my list ...so easy to write him off when hes out so long, id def bump him to my top 10...guy is Kaleta with less spunk but more offense
just for fun I'll add what i hope they'll turn out to be (/fantasy on)...
Foligno (dominant 2 line power forward, future captain, fan favorite)
Grigs (1C obviously)
Pysyk (a elite version of Tallinder)
Girgs (similar to Mike Richards maybe?)
Armia (Vanek 2.0)
McNabb (a smaller pronger type player)
Tropp (very good 3 line winger)
McCabe/JGL/Catenacci/Kea (steady D/Monster Shot/speedy 3C/physical 3C)
1. Mikhail Grigorenko
2. Joel Armia
3. Marcus Foligno
4. Mark Pysyk
5. Zemgus Girgensons
6. Brayden McNabb
7. Jake McCabe(Not happy with this pick)
8 Dan Catenacci
9. Jerome Gauthier-Leduc
10. TJ Brennan
I'm super, super high on Z's upside. I think he has Selke potential, and you can't win a Cup without a reliable checking line unless you have the two best centers in the league (and Staal was no slouch defensively either).
Whats cool is that even the top 3 or 4 aren't exactly the same every time. Means it's a nice pool of good players. I would have to say Grigorenko and Armia and Girgs are the more likely top 3, with Foligno as the HM right up there too.
