Your Top Prospect

Name your teams top prospect and what their REALISTIC potential is, meaning not if they reach their absolute full potential unless you think they will reach it. Also if you want you can put how many points they will get during their primes.

ehhh Sven Baertschi is a forward. He isn't going to be a #2 dman/PP QB. His likely outcome is a 1st/2nd line Winger.

Not sure if serious...

I don't really count guys taken 1st overall, so for the Oilers it's a tie between Schultz and Klefbom (personally, I still prefer Klefbom). Both realistically are #2/3 dmen with a good chance to become more than that. If things go well, Schultz could be in the 50 point range and Klefa in the 30 point range

Brendan Smith - Future top pairing dman for the Wings. Should be the #1 PPQB on the PP in his prime, will give you between 35-55 points, while giving us some nice hits and he isn't afraid to drop the mits.

A stat line of 8-10G 30-45A - 38-55P with 50-80PIMS would be a typical season for Smith in the future (if he meets his potential).

Ryan Strome: #1 center but #2 on the Islanders. 60-75pts/year and a PP monster.

Rielly was already said so I'll go with #2.

Nazem Kadri
Second-line, agitating forward. 40 - 55 points a year. Maximum 65 if given #1 PP time.

Average stat line:
21g, 31a, 52p - 75PIM

Most of you are giving max potential...there's no way Mikael Granlund is likely to hit 70 points a season, if he reaches his potential he may hit 70 points a season

Anyways....

Jon Merrill- Should be at least a middle pairing defenseman, has top pairing upside but that would be very hopeful. Potential PP QB, should find him self typically in the 35 point range with good D and some physicality

Scott Wedgewood- Mid-level starting goaltender, not elite but definitely starting calibre playing 55-65 games a year

1st line C or W. I see a few listing 70 points but I'll be a bit riskier and say 88 points.

I think grandlund has 70+ points written all over his game tied in with leadership, he is a great prospect.

70 is not Granlund's high end potential, He is been a PPG player pretty much anywhere he has ever played (including 1.5 PPG in the AHL).

Hell Pierre Marc Bouchard was a 60 points a year player in his prime(prior to his head getting scrambled), and Granlund has far more potential than he ever did and likely a better supporting cast at that. 70 really isn't all that optimistic of a projection for a top 5 prospect in the entire NHL like Granlund.

I don't think people are following these guidelines.

At any rate, I think Lindholm would be Anaheim's top prospect. Realistic potential is a top 4 defenseman, but there is certainly potential to be much better. If not Lindholm, then Palmieri, where realistic potential could be a top 6 complementary winger.
