The STL duo. Tarasenko has the most upside of the bunch, and Schwartz is as safe as they come.

How come ? He's a good prospect, but I think Coyle is as safe as they come on that list IMO

I went with Tarasenko & Schwartz. Tarasenko has obvious offensive upside that nobody can deny and Jaden Schwartz is a future NHL Captain. The kid is as classy as they come and plays a great two-way game. I haven't had much chance to see the Ottawa combo other than on the international stage but I'd say they're the most unproven combo right now (that isn't saying they'll be bad for all you Ottawa fans who will most definitely be butt hurt by that comment) and I'd say the Minnesota combo is a very close 2nd right now. Charlie Coyle has been an absolute animal since coming to the QMJHL. He looks like a fully grown man playing against Midget aged players. Granlund is probably the most talented prospect out of Finland I've seen in my life but I still have to give Tarasenko the edge by just a hair.
Imagine if Ottawa didn't deal the pick used on Tarasenko for David Rundblad? This thread wouldn't be necessary.

Granlund - Coyle

The guys with Coyle at or near the bottom of their list of these guys are severely underestimating this guy.

Who would you put under him? Certainly not Tarasenko or Coyle. Couldn't be Schwartz, IMO. I could see the argument for Zibanejad, as I never really liked him all that much, but I like Silfverberg

They are all great but I went with the Minny guys because I think they have the most upside as a tandem.

I'm a biased Minnesota poster so I chose the Minnesota guys.

However, if I couldn't vote for them I'd go for St. Louis. And I'm not a fan of Schwartz at all. I just think Tarasenko will be that good.

Huberdeau/Bjugstad for me...

Still, you can't do much better than Tarasenko and even if I'm not a big fan of Schwartz you can't deny the kid's talents and Tarasenko awesomeness, so it's the Blues duo for me.

After Huberdeau and Bjugstad though !

Coyle only behind Tarasenko and Granlund IMO... but he's also the safest player being talked about here IMO as well

Of course it couldn't be Schwartz, he is your teams prospect after all.

Coyle could end up a third liner. Schwartz has played in the NHL and looked respectable doing it.

Coyle is the safest of the group in that I think there's a 99% chance he makes the NHL, but I also think he has the lowest potential of the group, although I'm not sold on Sifverberg.

Say whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. He's 19 and he could already hold his own on an NHL third line... He'll crack Minnesota's top 6 pretty quickly.
You understand Coyle is currently putting up 2.4 points per game in the playoffs with Saint John and making it look effortless? When he came over from Boston College, I didn't really think much of it. I was blown away at how big and strong this kid is already. He's probably the most NHL ready of this group, physically. I'm not saying he's going to go and produce more points than the rest of the guys in this grouping. Simply saying he's the one guy who looks like he'll have no problem playing an 82 schedule against grown men.

disagree. Watch him play in St John. His center Phillips is a guy who is going to be a solid 3rd liner. I really feel his potential is much higher. He's a special power forward (I'm not even a Wild or Sea Dogs fan, just jealous my team doesnt have him haha)

Schwartz outproduced him in college, though.

You cant scout of points though. Coyle has a better frame and is much stronger. Will be a better player.

Coyle was in a different situation at BU than Schwartz was at CC. Look at Coyle right now. The most dominant player for the Sea Dogs in the playoffs and that team has Huberdeau on their other line. Not to mention his size, and the fact that he does a lot of other little things better than Schwartz.

Schwartz will be a good player in his own right, but with Coyle I think you're looking at a very special power forward.

I watched a ton of Coyle when he was at BU. I know who I'm talking about. It just doesn't impress me to see him go from a man's team to a boy's team and dominate everyone, let alone a QMJHL team that was already the consensus powerhouse. He's 20 years old and strong as an ox, if he weren't dominating 17 year old kids, I'd be worried.

I disagree that he's NHL-ready. He needs a year in the AHL. yes, he definitely has 2nd line potential. But I see him just as easily being a good tweener.

As I said, I watched a lot of him in college. I don't have access to viewing him in the Q, but like I said, dominating teenagers on an amazing junior team doesn't impress me like if he were putting up even half of those numbers at BU.

To say he went from a mans league to a boys league and that hes only dominating 17 year olds when you're talking about any CHL league vs US college hockey is ridiculous. You're really not gonna win an argument with many ppl by saying NCAA>CHL ffs lol

I respect your opinion, but I too have seen them both a lot. My opinion happens to be Coyle>>Schwartz
