Petter Granberg for sure. He should likely be in our top 10.

Next add Nilsson or Loov.

Voted Nicolas Deschamps for a 3rd or 4th time in a row. Very underrated.

Was a very early 2nd round pick(35th overall) in 2008.
Scoring leader in the QMJHL in 2009/10 (tied with Sean Couturier).
Pretty decent first pro season last year(80-15-31-46).
Since he's with the Marlies, he's one of their best forward(Regular season: 40-7-23-30)(Playoffs:17-3-9-12). Also had a 5 points night in the regular season.

So Deschamps made a lot of thing that show us that he has top 6 upside offensively (High draft pick, scoring leader in the QMJHL, decent first pro season, one of the best forward on his AHL team on one of the best team in the league (Marlies), a 5 points night in the AHL, etc).

And if he doesn't make it as a top 6 forward, he can become a good 3rd liner/bottom 6er. He's fast, good two-way game and good defensively, backcheck, work hard, he's big, finish his checks, etc. Will also bring some offense to the bottom six.

Very solid prospects.

Meant to vote Deschamps, but accidentally voted Granberg.
Should go Deschamps THEN Granberg.

What was Kenny Ryan's projection when we drafted him?

3rd line two-way forward I guess.

Big drop off here. Everyone before this point I could see having a career in the NHL. Everyone from here on in is a long-shot.

It's getting pretty tough now; it's pretty much 100% personal preference now...no real clear-cut winners.

I'm going to go with Deschamps. He's a high-skill forward who had a great playoffs with the Marlies last season.

Going with Deschamps because I've seen a lot more of him and really liked what I saw.

To be honest at the time I said it, I was being sarcastic. Was someone I had never heard of. But after I said it I decided to look him up and he doesn't seem all that bad haha, could be a sleeper pick that ends up being servicable for a #5/6/7 guy. 6'2 defensive defenseman weighs 230 pounds. No idea about his speed or movement. Seemed to be a higher IQ guy.

Disagree. Deschamps is easily in the same category as McKegg and D'Amigo, fi not better...

Komarov, next best, most NHL ready prospect. I suspect he will get around 10 games this season which will be more than anyone else here.

No, I'm not gonna lie, I haven't seen him play... But he is a fan favourite in North Dakota, and a pretty good shut-down defensman... doesn't have much offensive potential, but does his job well.

hits


And is a good character kid...

Any idea on his skating ability? It seems like that is the main reason these shutdown defenders prospects don't make the NHL. Not just Toronto buy everywhere.

I gotta go with Nicolas Deschamps. He actually should probably be rated higher, but this speaks to the depth we have.
