The homer vote is in.

But seriously, Philadelphia should be next.

Stamkos wins it by himself.

Next, flip a coin between the Habs and Jets. Then Flyers/Hawks.

Tampa because Stamkos.

Also I think Montreal would probably have Colberg or Gallagher ahead of Eller long term. Or just 2013 1st round pick.

Nope. Not unless you see them becoming first liners. A #2/3 C with size and shutdown ability is far more valuable than a second line winger.

I think I might have gone with Tampa even if it was Stamkos alone. Scoring 60 goals with just 12 PP goals is nuts. One of the most impressive feats after the 2005 lockout.

Voracek over Simmonds

Couturier and Schenn alone make them the next best choice imo and Voracek is going to be a beast as soon as we have a season

Easily Tampa. I'd take Stammer alone over a lot of these.

Some teams I had enough knowledge to determine the top 3 players in the organization that were drafted post-2007. Other teams I used the team's HockeysFuture page as well as their progress in this current season to shape their top 3. After I made the trios I began to take input from the respective team's fans to tweak the final product.

The Tampa Bay Stamkoses.

But honestly it makes no sense to have groups like Calgary with Baertschi, Horak, and Jankowski over Couture (2007), Hertl(2012), and Wingels (2008).

Eller is the weak link though and with TB and Chicago having a way better #1 right now it tips the scales IMO.

I took the Black Hawks here Kane is top 3 of players left right now and those 2 prospects are just dynamite.

Also what is Howden doing as the 3rd Florida prospect?

Don't worry, neither San Jose or Calgary were going to win any of the recent polls. I just removed some of the weaker trios to reduce some clutter. I'll probably do a ranking all the way down to #30 so San Jose will make there way back on the list either next poll or the one after that due to Coutures impressive pedigree.

Voted Buffalo because I didn't see Tampa. I think Buffalo's trio should be next though.

Should replace Rattie with David Perron. He's only 24 and was part of the 07 class

Voracek will be the better overall player, Simmonds probably a better goal scorer

I'd go with Voracek
