Voted Beaulieu but I was really close to Tinordi; absolutely love them both...in a manly way, of course...

Fucale for me. #1 goalie potential whereas none of the D-men have #1 D potential and there are no forwards in that group that I'm comfortable projecting as first liners.

Well we already have our #1 D, plus I would think Beaulieu does. If he improves his defensive play in the next few years he is going to be a great two-way d-man. He certainly has all the tools.

I'm not ranking the prospects based on what we have and where they fit into our team, I'm ranking them based on their stand-alone potential and projection. Also I don't think Beaulieu has the hockey sense to be a #1 D man. To me he's a #3-4 D who runs the power play and plays 20-22 minutes per game.

Voted Tinordi cause he's the most ready of them with very good upside.

But Beaulieu would be ahead if he can fix his defense.....hope he does in the next years cause he has a ninja vision

edit : just saw your comment monkey....almost the same about defense issues. Had a good laugh sorry

Using this, I would have to say Fucale

Beaulieu is 6'1", as he was listed on the Habs website.

Did you see Beaulieu play for the Habs?

Was he taller than Patches, who is 6'2"?

Beaulieu is clearly the guy with the most potential out of all our prospects, plus he has very good hockey sense.

Tinordi has reached a maturity level that puts him in front of Beauieu for the no. 1 spot.

in terms of pure "upside", I have to go with Collberg.

Of all the guys on the list, if each were to reach their absolute ceiling, I think he's the best of the bunch.

Tinordi, Beaulieu & Fucale all probably have a better chance of ending up better players, but in terms of pure ceiling Sebastian takes it imo.


Add Dumont.

Tinordi. Proximity to NHL, and a safe bet to be a top 4 D-man.

Come on man. Clearly? Some hockey pundits (Craig Button for one) say that Fucale is the best goalie they've seen at his age in a while. Beaulieu's a great player but many have questioned his decision making which is probably one of the harder weaknesses to improve.

I'm not saying Fucale is the clear cut #1 prospect but I think it's laughable that you're implying Beaulieu is miles ahead of all other Habs prospects in terms of potential.

Where did I say he was miles ahead? Tinordi is obviously someone who has more chance to reach his potential, which would be a top 4 minute eating defenseman. Although Beaulieu is a tough one to predict, you said he doesn't have the potential to be a #1 D and I disagree with that. He has very good hockey IQ and will continue to improve defensively. I doubt there is another prospect who has the same raw skill and upside as Beaulieu does, he has also shown very good progression since his draft year and had a great first season in Hamilton. Like all prospects there is a small chance Beaulieu does reach his potential but if he does he will be something terrific and will be a #1 d-man.

This is a very tight race.. and I went for Beaulieu because I believe he has the highest upside in the pool. Just tremendously impressed with his vision and how composed/smart he was with the puck in the NHL. He'll never be a defensive stalwart but I see enough of his game that he won't be terribad defensively for an offense-first guy.

He's listed as 6'1" on the Habs website, and I think this is what his actual size is just by watching him play, he was definitely shorter than Patches who is 6'2".
