This is where it gets interesting.
For me it comes down to Tangradi or Bortuzzo, but I'll probably go with Tangradi.

Bortuzzo.

These polls can hold up to 15 options can't they?

Why not add a few more like Wilson, Samuelsson , Zatkoff , Sundqvist, and Archibald.

If not add Samuelsson.

I still don't think guys like Strait, Tangradi or Bortuzzo are prospects any more.

Went with Kuhn. Had a very promising season two years ago, but lost most of last season to injury/suspension.

This will be the first i dont vote the winner. Voted Strait. Have, imo made more of his opportunities with the big club than Tangradi imo. Strait hasnt looked out of place and he is what he is. Not flashy, but always makes the simple play.

he probably means since they will be in the NHL next year(most likely)

i get it tho, last year it was hard to rank Jeffrey for the same reason.

well as it stands, they are going to get ranked. As such, they pretty much have to be in front of guys like Kuhn.

It's fine as is. The polls can hold even more than that, why not put them all on?

It's cleaner this way and no one is getting excluded that shouldn't be.

Vote for them where you think they belong regardless of what you consider their status because in this poll, they are prospects.

Fair enough. The way you worded it, it seemed like since they would be playing the NHL they should be in front of the other guys by default, basically. I do still consider them prospects, but not necessarily the best ones remaining on the board just because of their NHL-readiness.

I think we're getting to the point where these guys aren't so much "sure things" as the guys we've already voted. As such, I think the guys that are on the edge of making the NHL are a leg up over anyone that still has to prove that they'll ever get to that point. It's not set in stone or anything, but I really don't see an argument for Kuhn over Tangradi for example. Then again there seem to be a lot of people that think Tangradi has already busted so who knows

I think the next four should go:

Tangradi
Bortuzzo
D'Agostino
Strait

Then it'll be a close battle of forwards with Agostino, Hanowski, Blueger, Kuhnhackl, Uher.

I kind of think Macaroni should be in the mix there too, so add Macaroni.

My next three votes are going to be Tangradi, Bortuzzo, and Strait -- arguably our three most NHL-ready prospects left on the board. This round I went with Tangradi.

Add Samuelsson.

Yah WTH... how come we keep leaving Macaroni out of these polls? He's arguably our biggest offensive asset behind Dangles, in terms of pure skill / speed.
