How the hell is it clear? Jarry "won" by 7 votes and 50 people didn't vote for a goalie. There should be a run-off.

No, Burgs set the rules clearly when we began. Jarry won by ~5 percent. Run-offs are for margins of around 1 percent.

At this point, upside is a long ways away for most of these guys. If they fill out, if they put it all together, if he develops a shot, etc. I think Hartzell has the least ifs of these guys, so went with him again.

If we are looking at who has the most potential, Sundqvist has to be coming up soon. If he can fill out his frame he could be a physical monster with a scoring touch. Voted for Blueger in this poll though.

I agree. Voted Blueger here, and I think Archibald next. But Sundqvist is up after that. I like his potential upside, and that the adjective "mean" (or some synonym) seems to pop up on his scouting reports. Hopefully he makes the WJC team, so I can actually see him in action.

I find it difficult to complain about runoffs or close votes. Usually, that means there is only a small margin if any between prospects. Silly to get upset about that.

When I see Blueger play, I just want to feed him some redbull loaded with crack. I must be the only one that thinks this though.

I'll go with Hartzell, I saw him play a few games last year. He's definitely capable of making some huge saves to hold a lead, while the other team is pressuring.

He looks too much like Jagr-spawn to not become a legendary player.

Don't know enough about him yet, but I'd put him in the group with the other German sounding name. He has lots of growing to do.

Blueger
Sundqvist
Zlobin
Megna
Kuhnhackl
Guentzel

Murray
Maguire
Gibbons
Thompson
Samuelsson

Sill
Payerl
Uher
Marcantuoni
Ruopp

McNeil
D'Agostino
Seymour


Something like that.

Yes. The underrating of D'agger begins yet again!

And I don't see how Gibbons and Thompson aren't destined to become career AHLers at this point.

I wouldn't call him a puck possession player. He doesn't have the size right now.

During the scrimmage he made a great no look back hand pass from his knees that people actually awed at when it lead to a goal. The problem is the two plays before that he tried stick handling past the D-man & got laid out.

He needs to get bigger, faster, & refine his game. Despite that there is no doubt about his talent in tight spaces. From what I've seen crafty is a good word.

A little OT here...

Is Zlobin turning pro this year? If so is he projected to be in WB/S or Wheeling?

Well I don't think he's gonna be ready for the start of the season because of his shoulder.

Maybe the reason I'm "underrating" D'Agostino is because Cornell wasn't that good this past year. Who knows. Maybe it's also too much stat reading.

Byron was a late round boom/bust pick with a supposedly ridiculous amount of skill. a late riser/sleeper on a few major pre-draft scouting lists.

that's pretty much the MO for a prospect scrimmage. maybe not the getting laid out part, but the individualism is expected in order to impress those watching. completely different than any normal game.
