Kosmachuk for me until he gets in now. Considering how i really haven't seen much of any of these guys, he's got the highest "pedigree" so far and is the only one of our remaining prospects to have professional scouts(third party agencies, not that their gospel or anything) give him legitimate top 6 upside.
I know we've all gotten bit by the Lowry bug by his early production last year, but It's far too small of a sample size for me to give him the edge over Kosmachuk. No one was really saying Lowry had a shot at top 6 position before last year, where's Kosmachuk's been given that upside by a couple of sources.
Probably higher risk/reward then Lowry, but I feel he really has a good shot to become a Ladd style top 6er.
it's really close for me between Kosmachuk/lowry for forwards, and Zach and Zach for D.
Z Redmond...... the Jets are very high on his upside and leadership qualities...last year all star in the AHL and will play a much higher role on The Ice Caps this year with a 3-4 game ...injury NHL call up this year preping him for 2013/14
Went with Redmond. Put up 31 points and a plus 9. Trailed off in the later part of the year but it was his first pro season after college. I'm hoping next year he can keep going hard all year and give us a better idea of what he's got.
After the top 10 there is a big dropoff here, IMO. Tough call as Lowry, Kosmachuk, and Redmond are all really close here, decent prospects but nothing special. Maybe one of them becomes an NHL regular.
I like Lowry though, he was having a breakout year before the injury, he stays healthy he could find himself as a checker on Canada's WJC hockey team next year, has the size and grit needed, and a good set of hands as well.
And for the add, after the 5 you just put on there is nothing else really to add, maybe Chris Carrozzi?
