As an aside, was Parayko passed over in the 2011 draft? he's older than Binnington...

Decided to go with Walters. I noticed that since Walters knocked the guy into next week and then fought off his challenger last week, that he has not played in the last 3 games. Interesting that Everitt's winning streak ended after this game, and they lost the last 3 games. Anyone know if he is hurt, suspended (would be ridiculous) or benched? He seems like a good, old school, hard nosed defenseman. I like him!! Gardiner, the newly drafted Finnish D-man (name escapes me) and Peluso also were considered.

Going with Peluso. He seems to be rounding out into a player how can carve out an NHL career as a 4th line guy. He also leads the Rivs in goals so far this season.

I also considered Nigro, Karpowich & Beach.

This is the point where I will stop voting, as I know little or nothing of the players left. I'm just happy that we have 20ish prospects that I know and am excited to follow.

Voted Max Gardiner. A big young centremen(6'3 190) who's off to a real good start with Penn State. Like the rest of these guys he's definitely a long shot, but I really like his potential.


My next choice would be between Mark Cundari or Nick Walters.

I went with Beach. He has some offensive skill and potential. Peluso or Walters might have been "safer" bets. Beach is quite a longshot. But IF a lot goes right, he might be an excellent 4th liner, who could, possibly fill in on a 3rd line once in a while (where peluso probably won't be able. But EVERYONE from here on is a longshot to make it as a regular in The NHL. If goalies didn't have such a long, tough road to The NHL, I might pick Tremblay. He's got great reactions. Walters should be a steady defensive defenceman (maybe like Steve Staios).

Robb_k,

Staios was a 6ft offensive defenseman in juniors who carved himself out a long NHL career as a 6th-7th DMan who early in his career played some wing. He will drop the gloves for some middle weight bouts but is not much of a fighter. Walters is a mean 6'2" defensive defenseman who chips in occassionally on offense.(in Juniors) I see him as a poor mans Jackman who stands up for his team mates and is a better fighter than Jackman. The kind of player you would rather play with than against. I rarely dissagree with you and when I do I'm usually wrong but I don't see the comparison.

I think you are on the right track. It is a gift to be able to time your hits as Walters does and knock people flat cleanly. You better be able to handle yourself, if you do it which Walters seem to be able to. I think of guys like Butcher, Jackman, kasparitis, and Stevens. Hopefully, he may get more offensive as he matures, but his hitting game is there. Many of his scraps you see on hockey fights.com Walters buries somebody. I hated as a forward knowing certain d-men will bury you in a second, and you do think about it out on the ice. Saw stars more than once. Sure you know that Robb.

You are certainly correct. Staios was a defensive defenceman in The NHL, but not as good a hitter or fighter as Walters is likely to be. Walters will likely be more effective at "punishing" forwards who get in his area. So, yes, maybe Butcher would be a better comparison. Stevens was a lot bigger, and was very good on offence. I see Walters' top scoring potential at roughly Jackman's level.
