No poll?!


EDIT: Lol, there it is. Didn't show up for me.


Okay so this time I definitely think it's gotta be Irving.

Had to go with Irving here.

Rounding out my top ten:

4. Gadreau
5. Horak
6. Arnold
7. Jankowski (I hope he gets the Bobrovsky treatment on TSN) it's tough never having seen him play though - he gets to this list strictly by being a big talented centre.
8. Ramage
9. Nemisz - I'm hoping he's a late bloomer, akin to Gary Roberts.
10. Ferland

Voted for Gaudreau. Think his upside is higher than Reinharts and he had a more impressive season playing against older players.

Btw whats up with that Brodie pic?

It looks like he is taking a slapshot with a broken stick and there is no puck to be seen.

No Reinhart in your top 10 Stewie? That's also pretty high placing for Ramage. I'd be interested to hear why.

Also yeah, Brodie pic is kinda lol.

I see Ramage as a young Brad McCrimmon. Not flashy, not going to put up big points, probably has a ceiling as a #4 defenseman at most, but he will be solid as a rock defensively, is a good character guy and has good hockey IQ and could be a leader for any team he plays on. Those kinds of people are the ones you build your team with for long term success IMO

As for Reinhart, I'll be honest I haven't seen enough of him to be convinced that he'll be more than the next Dustin Boyd. I will gladly eat those words though.

Had to go with Irving. Shows the most potential of the rest of the group to be a impact NHLer.

He's stronger on the puck than Boyd and better defensively (although Boyd was no slouch in his own end). That said, I think Boyd showed more offensive ability. I think Max is a decent 3rd line center in the NHL.

Surprised to see Reinhart get such little love. I'd say the only prospects for NHL ready than he is are Brodie and Sven.

Irving based on potential impact and arrival date (should be next season).

Gotta go with Leland Irving as he could probably play as an NHL goalie.

i disagree with the bolded, i believe hes gonna be a very solid 3rd guy, and a future captain in the NHL (i have a man crush on him lol)

Irving, Had to go with him. He shows everything that is needed to become a starter in the NHL in two to three season. Kids got talent.

Mark Jankowski for me.

Outside of Guadreau no other player remaining has top six upside, let alone top line upside. (Although I would say Granlund does)
It may be a year early to put him so high, but realistically he is our top prospect outside of Sven.

Went with Leland. My top 3 is Sven, Brodie and Leland. Now it will get interesting, I think either Gaudreau or Reinhart is next and you could make a case for Granlund or Janko.

Finally Irving is getting his support. Based on his performance last year, he's going to be a number one goalie in time. If he continues to gets gradual introduction into a starter position, I can see him being a starter for a long time.

Voted Gaudreau he is boom or bust but I think he has almost as much talent as Sven and is more skilled than any other player outside of Sven.

Could you add the percentage of the vote each player got in the summary? Thanks.

Irving.
