By HF itself I would say Cam Atkinson. Overall, I would say Lukas Sedlak

Chris Wagner. Led all underclassmen in scoring, sixth in the NCAA, currently the top rookie forward in Norfolk, and he was trusted with minutes on the PK virtually the moment he arrived in the AHL.

I can't see how Stone is underrated after last year's WJC. Everyone knows who he is now.

For me in Detroit's pool with Tvrdon going down for the year it is really up to three guys. Landon Ferraro who is playing dynamite in Grand Rapids and restoring a lot of what people thought in his draft year but have since come to think he would never reach and wrote him off. Then two D-man that not a lot of people know a ton about. Marchenko over in Russia, probably would have been the captain for team Russia at the WJC last year if he wasn't hurt but injuries are his big problem. Right now he runs the point for CSKA and is earning a lot more ice-time. Then probably my favorite for this Nick Jensen. I see no way his skating doesn't get him in the league. He is decent sized kid and has improved in all zones. Clever with the puck and an occasional lights out hit because of his ability to close and accelerate. An awful lot like an alumni from St. Cloud State University, Bret Hedican.

He is in the ECHL with Reading after a rough star in Hershey, so he is already over. In fact he came over to play for the Indianopolis Ice and then Saint John Seadogs, he has been over here for five years running now.

William Karlsson for the Ducks maybe Rikard Rakell as well.

Karlsson and Rakell are good choices as well. Karlsson maybe the most, since he plays in Sweden.

Hard to say for Minnesota; Mario Lucia is having a great rookie season, Erik Haula is outproducing Kyle Rau and Nick Bjugstad (a 1st rounder) or Johan Gustafsson who has been a stellar goaltender in the SEL.

Gotta go with Gustafsson. On a team loaded in depth, Gustafsson doesn't play in NA and isn't really 'known' around here. But he could be a better goaltender than Hackett or Kuemper.

Think Wagner can be a top 6 player or does he top out as a 3rd line PK forward?

I disagree. He just isn't that talked about because he plays for Columbus. I think most people know he has very high upside

Kadri is so universally crapped on, I think we might've hit the point where he's actually underrated. Weird.

I think he could be a second liner.

Pretty much this.

Although I would make a case for Hudon as well.

SJS prospect Hertl is very underrated around here. He is going to be very good. I think he suprises most of the people at WJC this year.

Beau Bennett. Gained a bunch of weight, leading the Baby Pens in scoring in his rookie season, looking good.

More difficult for me to find one that isn't on the Avs...

Will stick with Siemens I suppose, even though some other names like Sgarbossa should get mention too.

Hard to say for the Hawks.. I'd say Kevin Hayes, as he seems to be the forgotten 1st round pick. He's still a project, but he has outstanding size, above-average hockey sense and playmaking ability and is (from what I've seen), a good skater for his size.
