Harrington. It was between Harrington and Maatta for me, but Harrington's a step ahead.

These boards are nuts. A month ago none of you knew Dumoulin even existed...now he's ranked in the top three. It's like if he's a highly rated prospect according to these boards that the Staal trade was some big steal.

I liked Maatta at 3 so voting him until it happens but my guess is that Pouliot, Bennett and Harrington go before him...prove me wrong...

Add Veilleux?

I'll go with Määttä. 23 points in 19 playoff games in OHL.

Like teammate Harrington said:

"The Pens got a steal where they got him. I thought he'd go top 10. He does everything well, poised and confident".

I'm going with the Maatta Euro-hype.

Seriously he seemed to be a somewhat coveted guy at the draft and seems like less of a long-shot to be a stud than Bennett or the other offensive guys. But I swear I'm voting for a F next!

This. And I love a lot of the other people on the board, so I think that says something.

Harrington. The kid just looks like an NHL'er out on the ice. I like Pouliot's potential, but Harrington took his game to another level last year.

Pouliot's considerable offensive upside gives him the advantage over Harrington and Maata for me.

Yes. Agotino, Wilson & Archibald -- and perhaps even Sundqvist & Murray -- should be be ahead of him right now.

Harrington until I get it right!! Really surprised at where he is viewed but then just might be a reflection on my rating skills. Seriously think he will be a name we hear in Pittsburgh for a long time!

Voted Pouliot again for upside. Going to go with the Pens' braintrust seeing something in him to draft him so high. It's actually pretty close for me between Pouliot, Bennett, Harrington, and Maatta. Any of those four could rank from #3-6 for me in the rest of these polls.

Side note: I almost feel like Dumoulin won the last poll because he's the shiny new toy acquired in the Staal deal. Maybe I'm underrating him badly, but I just don't see him having higher upside than guys like Pouliot, Bennett, Maatta or even Harrington.
