Round 2: "Best NA Pro Prospect" - 3. Gustav Nyquist vs. 96. Kevin Connauton

On to Round 2...

QUALIFICATIONS: Minimum of 50 AHL + NHL games played (20 AHL + NHL games played for Gs); Maximum of 100 NHL games played (30 NHL games played for Gs); 26 years old or younger by 12/31/12; Signed to play in North America next season; Can't have played more than 50 NHL games in 11/12 NHL season, injured players exempt (ie. Mike Sauer, Jacob Josefson, etc.)

Disclaimer: This is based on my own subjective rankings. So if you don't like them, too bad - the best will win in the end. If I overlooked someone: too late the bracket is already made. Made a total list of ~200 but pared it down to 128.

3. Gustav Nyquist (DET)
Round 1: def. (126) Mark Borowiecki - 84%

Realistically it is Nyquist and it is not really even close(and I think he is overrated). Yet somehow, Connauton is winning the poll so far.

BTW, you posted Nyquist's eliteprospect profile twice.

The correct answer is Nyquist, but I think Connauton's ceiling is higher, so I have some rationale behind my homer vote.
