2012 Minnesota #11 Prospect

The first "one of us" prospect is off the board as Mario Lucia takes home the ten spot with 35.24% of vote.

2012 HF Wild Prospect Rankings
1. Mikael Granlund
2. Jonas Brodin
3. Charlie Coyle
4. Mathew Dumba
5. Johan Larsson
6. Jason Zucker
7. Matt Hackett
8. Brett Bulmer
9. Zack Phillips
10. Mario Lucia

Number eleven is shaping up to be a good one as Johan Gustafsson and Raphael Bussieres each picked up sizable support. They were 10 of 13 prospects to receive votes. The new prospect in this poll is Chay Genoway (yes he does count as a prospect according to HF)and as always (say it with me), polls are open for two days.

Seeler.

Best combination of upside and safe prospect. Really like his mobility and his decision making on the back end. Wild will have a very nice prospect on their hands in a few years, IMO.

i know a certain person involved with player development thinks Seeler will be a top four D when all is said and done. I like Ralphie because he reminds me a little of Latendresse. The Minnesota version of Latendresse.

Had to go with Haula. Even though he is a longer term project like Lucia you have to love the strides he made last season offensively. From 6-18-24 to 20-29-49. Really excited to see what he does this year.

No one knew who "Ralph" was before the draft. Don't think that just because he was drafted in the 2nd round qualifies him to be ranked over the proven commodity that Gustafsson is.

Yea. I just don't get it. Especially since we didn't king Larsson when he was drafted. He was another nobody that didn't get respect. Gustafsson has been pro for quite a while now and performing well. Kuemper before Ralph, too.

Thats also why I said I picked goalie. No one puts any value in goaltender. They want to take the pretty pick.

You're all goalie haters.
