Yeah, I have Sproul #1 and Backman #2. Both guys are playing at a very high level in their given league this past year. Jurco would have been #3 for me.

Surprised that Mantha won last round, and so many people are voting for Frk this round. Just an observation.

Sheahan. I think he can be penciled in as a third line center or top9 wing. He's just a solid player, who I think has NHL written all over him.

I'm a really big fan of Frk, but I see little separation (in terms of talent) between him and Backman. I'm just a big fan of his, especially since he cut down on the penalties. Next year will be telling to see how legit he his.

Surprised to see Sheahan so highly regarded, I like him too but I really want to see his offense increase before I rank him this high. I guess I'm really big fan of offense.

I love the notion all our top kids are 6'+... We have one hell of a solid farm with a nice blend of attributes..

Sheahan for the forth time. Everybody keeps talking about the good years the other prospects had but forget the fact that they were junior players not pro's. man I sound like a broken record. I do like all the prospects voted for already but can't put a younger guy playing against boys ahead guys with talent playing against men.

Sheahan was a key guy on a Calder winning team he deserves more credit. I guess if he pulls this one off I can start my lobbying for Ferraro next.

Frk for me. Showed he can more than hold his own with top-level talent. Played with Drouin and MacKinnon, but learned how to create his own space and has a monster shot. Has developed quite well. From his first year in Halifax to last year, he made amazing strides. Was a terrible skater when he arrived from Czech Republic and is now a decent skater. Still needs at least 1-2 more years to develop.

About the same places I have them, understood Mantha, especially with his size and new toy thing going on, but cannot see why Frk is getting that much love in comparison to Sheahan.

Like his shot and compete level, but really want to see him at the pro level. Sheahan answered a lot of his offensive questions and had an extremely strong post-season. Played in the Top 6 all year long, even displaced Andersson on the first line for a good chunk of the season when both were down.

Sheahan is dropping because posters saw him get pushed around at the NHL level and have realized that, despite his size, he's just not the NHL-ready, physical, two-way forward that they thought he was.

Many of us had an unrealistic expectation that this kid would be able to come in and win physical battles against NHL veterans just because he's so big. When some of the other kids get a call up and we see their weaknesses exposed, their stock will drop too.

You watched a game where he played six minutes and drove in to play against an extremely physical St. Louis team. He didn't have a great game. But having watched his 72 games in the AHL plus playoff run if you think Sheahan is going to get pushed around a bunch prepare to be surprised. Sheahan and Glendening are probably the best two prospects in terms of board play down in the AHL, very solid on their skates. He isn't overly physical in the hitting department though, but he doesn't shy away from contact either. We will see with another off-season to get a little stonger cannot imagine you will see the same and hopefully he gets more than a game and 11 shifts to prove his point this time.

Jensen may very well play in the NHL regularly before anyone on this list.

Sheahan. He showed great playoffs, is pretty well rounded and ready and had an overall good season in the Pro-ranks. That gives him the edge over Junior players like Frk in my books. He could skyrocket next year, though.

With that logic, I'm surprised Almquist wasn't your choice...

Woudn't mind about that.

I think my highest wishlist are 3 right-handed defencemen, who could be the fastest developers to have a perfect defence with handnesses in some day.

I think people are more enamored with offensive upside even if it is a long ways off. It's a lot sexier of a pick than solid two way 3c.

Voted Sheahan

For me it is the difference in ceiling.

I see Sheahan as a surefire NHLer, which is a bonus, but I don't see him being a regular top 6 forward, unless used to spread out the line up, much like Abdelkader has been used this past year.

Sheahan has the physical tools to be a bottom 6 forward for the rest of his career, so he has that going for him, plus he has played some pro hockey already.

Frk has the talent level to hold his own on a 1st or 2nd line in the NHL. He has that next level of talent that guys like Sheahan don't have. But it remains to be seen if he can hang in pro hockey (I have no doubt he can be a 1st line forward in the AHL for the rest of his career, but the NHL is another story).

So basically Frk's ceiling > Sheahan's ceiling, IMO, and that is why I voted that way.

He didn't look great in that game and didn't do much with the puck, but he didn't look wholly out of place either. Apparently everyone else viewed it as a miserable performance.
