I think I got everyone. Not sure on people like Polacek, Berra, Barulin, etc.

Or guys like Chorney, Hensick, Cracknell, Porter.

Or someone like Junland

After Veilleux the Blues have 9 or 10 more legit NHL prospects.

Went with Eronen, sounds like he is off to a good start in Finland.

Thanks for adding Cundari. Voted Andronov again...have a feeling he's going to tear it up in the A this season. His numbers in the KHL are underwhelming to say the least but he has been playing in that league since he was a teenager and we all know most younger players don't get much playing time there. That said he is still very much young(just turned 23 this Summer) and with his size, speed, and experience he should be a force to reckon with this season.

None of those guys, with the possible exception of Barulin, are legitimate prospects... and Barulin is only a possibility because NHL clubs hold the rights to drafted Russian players in perpetuity.

Stephen Macaulay was not offered a contract by the Blues, and is a free agent... no longer a Blues' prospect.

It's tough to decide among Andronov, Veillieux, and Tesink, and Parayko is intriguing. A lot has to go right for each one of them. It's a total craps shoot. If I had a gun to my head, I'd probably take a gamble on Veillieux, as he seems to have a high scoring potential. If he can round out his game some, and gain a lot of strength, he could be a good 3rd liner and possible 2-4 "tweener".

Went with Veilleux last time so going with him again.

It's been 4 years since the Blues drafted Erstad and they didn't sign him so I think we can officially write him off now. He scored 0 goals and 5 assists in D-III hockey last season as a forward...yikes!

I'm not really a big fan of adding Barulin. While the Blues technically hold his rights forever (at least as the rules are currently written), he's made it known that he's not interested in an NHL career anymore. I think it's time to forget about him, Alexandrov, Pervyshin, etc.

So for the next time, I'll add nobody, and remove MacAulay? If anybody thinks of someone else to be added, just let me know

Mobile polls, it's about time! Went with Tesink. I'm really impressed with his drive.

Also went Veillieux. He has a good set of size and tools. Had a great preseason. Eronen and Andronov are right there too. Like to see Eronen here before giving him any serious consideration as a prospect, especially after the lockout... Let's see what Andronov does in the states. I think he may surprise us all.

I think Tesink, MacEachern and Eronen would round out my top 20.
