Penguins #11 prospect

Strait rounds out the top 10. Hmm... 8 defensemen, 2 forwards, 0 goalies... sounds about right. Added goaltender Jeff "Matt" Zatkoff.

Interestingly enough... #8, #9, and #10 all could be off the list next year. To me, this is their breakout years and I don't know if they will get all the opportunity in the world to shine. So in limited time - shine like hell.

Went Kuhn here.

Kuhn will take this, but I really like Blueger's upside

I have no clue who to go for right now. I think D'Agostino is our most underrated prospect, especially now with the crazy amount of depth we have on defense.

With forwards, I think it's about a three way tie who should go next between; Hanowski, Kuhn, and Agostino.


Also, add Sundqvist.

Going Blueger. He's the highest drafted player on the list outside of Veilleux (whose injuries have crippled his value), and he's got the best pure skill on the list.

Based on those two things alone, I gave him the nod.

Hanowski. It's pretty close between him, Kuhn and Blueger though.

Add Sundqvist.

It was a pretty tough decision between Hanowski and Kuhnhackl, but I went with Hanowski since he's steadily improved every season, and he's supposedly working on his skating this summer...

Ben Hanowski ‏@Ski_Ski74
Another good day with the #legassassin Diane Ness legs are feeling, but feeling results #GettingThere

IMO Kuhnhackl has to show me something this season to get back to being close to a top 10 prospect for us.

Went with Marcan since Murray isn't on the list. Murray has some tremendous upside that catapults him way up there.

Going with Blue because of upside. I'm still sticking to a Krejci comparison with him.

I was actually thinking about him at 8 but Tangradi, Strait and Bort are just to ripe.

Marcantuoni was looked at as a 1st rounder before injuries derailed him last season, so to me, he has the highest upside of anyone left. As someone mentioned about Kuhnhackl, Marcantuoni's game is such that, even if he doesn't hit his ceiling, should still be able to contribute at the NHL is a lesser role. I picked him.

Hanowski again. He's super-skilled, a leader and has improved his strength and skating since being drafted.

Oh, and the beard.
