Prospect poll, 2012: #11

A bit of a surprise after a close race for the last spot in the top ten. Stephen Johns takes it. I was voting for him because he is really the only truly hardnosed defenseman with any NHL hopes at all down in the system (I think Olsen will turn out to just be too darn slow, even though I am pulling for him). While I harbor no hopes whatsoever of him being in the NHL in the near future, someone like who he would pan out to be is exactly what the Hawks need.

Stephen Johns



#1: Brandon Saad, LW (81.82%)
#2: Teuvo Teravainen, LW/C (59.62%)
#3: Mark McNeill, C (48.00%)
#4: Jeremy Morin, LW (36.84%)
#5: Dylan Olsen, D (40.74%)
#6: Phillip Danault, C (44.12%)
#7: Brandon Pirri, C (41.86%)
#8: Kyle Beach, LW (30.19%)
#9: Adam Clendening, D (43.75%)
#10: Stephen Johns, D (27.78%)

And now we move into the obscure #11-20 range. Two days to vote. Remember to tell me if there's a name you want on there.

And now I vote for Calnan. Why? Because he is probably the best physical athlete down in the Hawks system. You can't teach that. I think he'll shoot up the rankings in the future.

Kayes

add Carruth and Hutton is not a prospect


Kayes has the highest potential out of those guys and he improved since being drafted. I also don't see why Calnan should be better than Fournier. I think the Hawks scouts know more about them...

Hutton was thought of enough to get a mercy contract last season (for the duration of the year) from the Hawks. That's good enough to at least include him.

There is no such thing as a doctorate in scouting. I happen to think Calnan is a more interesting and higher end potential talent than Fournier in somewhat the same way as Byfuglien took off. They don't. They get paid for their opinions while I don't, but that doesn't for a second mean I can't be right and them wrong. Even last year, how long did it take before Saad was front and center and McNeill an afterthought in the Hawks future list?

Going with Shalunov. Very talented and it seems more likely that he might come over after prospect camp.

Went with Kevin Hayes again

I think he is safe prospect with good upside and the quality development in his 2 way game is big thing going forward

Can't vote from my phone, but I'd go for Kevin Hayes.

I think his development will really take off this year. He'll really need to step up with Kreider gone, but I think he'll pull it off.

Kayes, he keeps improving his game, and hopefully he'll get closer to NHL level

I can't decide which Hayes brother I want to vote for...

There's Jayes and Kayes... I want to for the JKayes.

I also think it is close between the Hayes brothers. In the little that I saw of the prospects, Kevin looked pretty slick and Jimmy has already had a taste of the NHL and didn't look out of place in limited minutes. I'll give Kayes the edge because he is younger and seems quite confident in the way he plays the game.
That said, I know little about our prospects in general because I haven't seen them play much at all and have steered away from these polls. I won't vote this time either .. will leave it up to those that have followed their progress. Really hoping Jimmy makes the squad this year.

Surprised Jimmy is this low. He's already proven to have the body and skillset to be a Holmstrom clone. I'd be grooming him to forget the sniping and just crash the net and emulate Dave Andreychuk. He's a good enough skater along with having soft hands around the net to stick in the NHL as the third wheel on a productive scoring line.

Those expecting him to start running people over and turning on power forward beast mode are going to be disappointed however. It just isn't his game.

Kevin has the higher upside than his brother. He's my pick.

Jimmy is good, but his upside isn't as good as Kayes.
