FWIW, Vatanen looks very comfortable playing the North American game. Reminds me very much of Lubomir Visnovsky. Only I've seen Sami use the body a little more for his size.

Danny Kristo - MTL

A lot of people have over-looked him by now assuming he is a bust, but he has tons of skill and upside, who could, in the next few years, develop into a solid top 6 forward capable of putting up numbers like 25 G - 30 A - 55 P

Anthony Camara

I'm not saying Camara is going to be Lucic and honestly I don't think he will ever be close to Lucic's offensive potential. But one thing Camara could bring is that energy and game changing ability Lucic brings to the table. Camara will throw the gloves off, get a big hit and has decent enough skills to maybe get a 20 goal season in the NHL. I see Camara as less skilled but faster Darren McCarty and I really think he could be a star for the Bruins fanbase

Be excited, but be cautious. He's not a safe player. And by that I mean he puts himself in vulnerable positions every time he has the puck. I watched him last night, and I can't tell you how many times he's skating through the neutral zone with his head glued to the puck. Someone who knows how to play D and is a lot bigger than him is going to destroy him.

Really liked this guy when he was drafted and was hoping the flames would take a flyer on him if he dropped.

How has he progressed?

He's looked good. It's just hard to tell if he's ever going to be anything more than a great junior scorer though. The real test for him will be to see how he does at the pro level...not much left for him to do in the dub.

For the habs I'd say Leblanc. This kid doesnt stop. Maybe Archambault if he goes on.

For the whole league, it's Zlobin.

Anyone that is a Bolts fan has high hopes for him. We see where he can go and see a possible superstar. His downside is he a little small for a goalie, and needs to work on rebound control and lateral movements. But we see the greatness there.

I'll go with Jani Hakanpää. Big guy, has worked (and is still working) on his skating, but very good defensively, even at 20 years old. Sometimes he looks like an elephant in a porcelain store, but I think he could actually benefit from the smaller North American rink. He's used in pretty much all situations here (ES, PP and PK), but he's definitely a defensive-minded dman.

From Toronto I would say Joe Colborne:
Most think he is going to be a 3rd/4th line center.

By around age 25 I'm expecting:

6'5 220lbs
20 goals 30 assists

Just a feeling I have.

I'll be the first to name a Flyers prospect

Shayne Gostisbehere
Was an unknown until the later stages of the NCAA season where Union made it to the frozen four. Since then, he's impressed coaches at the US world junior camp where some say he's out shined 2012 first round d-men. And though he's only played 3 games so far this season, he's at a ppg pace

Tyson Barrie I think will be one of the better offensive defenseman one day in the NHL.

I don't think Justin Kloos is "really obscure". Yes, he got passed over in the 2012 draft, but he is currently (albeit early in the season) tied for second in USHL league scoring. The knock on him seems to be that he doesn't do any one thing extremely well. What he does do EXTREMELY well is score. He's lead almost every league he's ever played in in scoring. Not saying he's going to lead the USHL in scoring, but I won't be surprised if he's on the first page of the leaderboard. He may or may not be drafted as an "overager", but I have a feeling some NHL GM's might be asking their scouting staffs why they passed on him in 2012. IMHO
