I think Kyle Palmieri will be the best player now and in the future. Eberle-lite.

Don't know too much about Coyle, but Etem vs. Palmieri is incredibly tough for me. Kyle Palmieri is more proven and probably better right now, but I think Etem has a slightly higher upside, is younger, and has also looked good in the NHL so far this year. I love both of them, but for now I think Palmieri is a pretty safe bet to be a 50 point winger at least

Coyle has looked pretty good in his first two NHL games. Came very close a couple times to scoring his first NHL goal tonight

Anyway I'm going Coyle, Etem, Palmieri.

Coyle is a safe bet just because he's big and is guaranteed a 3rd line role at the very least. Similar situation with Etem, with just a bit of defensive awareness, that athleticism makes him an NHLer regardless. Palmieri has an excellent shot and could be the best of all of them simply because he's probably the most skilled. He's also the least gifted athletically.

Palms WILL easily be a perennial 25+ goal scorer in this league. His shot is unbelievably hard and accurate. More importantly he knows where he needs to be to accept passes and can fire them off even when they aren't in the wheel house. Also, his speed is way above average.

Palmieri. I'd love him on the Pens.

Coyle over Palmieri by a hair. I think Etem is a step or two behind these guys.

15-20g and 40-50 points is a safer expectation.

I would go with:

Palmieri
Coyle
Etem

No wrong answer here tho.. They are all very good NHL prospects.

a nice problem to have if Anaheim had all three of these kids.

I think Coyle has the most productive and longest career overall as he just seems more stable and able to play both sides of the puck for a dozen plus years. I think Palmieri tops out with the highest goals total in a season as he can have a few 30-40 goal years, but be a guy who fades away after a few years as well.

Etem is the pure wildcard here as he is starting to catch up on Coyle in terms of overall ability. I doubt he will have Palmieri's goal scoring ability, but he shouldnt be too far off it either.

if I had a gun to my head I would go:

Coyle
Etem
Palmieri

and that list is for overall body of work.

I think Coyle has the highest upside and is still developing lots so I'm going with him. Palmieri and Etem are both dime a dozen players. Regular players who can put up 50-60 points whereas Coyle can both score and play physical.

I've got a dime for that sort of dozen anyday...Emerson Etem has a couple of elite tools that IF they translate could merit the Ducks a fantastic, first line winger for years to come.

He's simply finding his momentum. I don't think his career arc equates to an assists-heavy, shot-light statistical future. When his confidence sets in...Those quick hands, quick feet and fearless, nearly reckless style is going to be really entertaining to watch as an Anaheim fan.

That's the first time I've heard a player like Palmieri or Etem referred to as a "dime a dozen" player.

I'm sorry. I hate this saying, but anyone who thinks Etem is still just a one dimensional player who only knows how to drive the net hasn't been watching him this year. His defense, passing, and strength with and without the puck has gone up a lot. Am I sold that he'll know how to snipe as well as Palmieri? No. Am I convinced that he'll be better than Coyle? Not at all. But dime a dozen player? How many of these dime a dozen players play so well that they earn first line minutes after 3 games in the NHL?

Etem really is a wild card. His strength, speed, and size could result in him being a great top 6 player. The issue is I'm not convinced his finishing abilities will be good enough. They can be but it's too early to call. To me he has the highest potential of the 3. Palmieri to me just sees the game really well and he brings a lot of energy to whatever line he's on. Can he be a 30 goal scorer? Probably, but probably not. Coyle to me has the best all around game and is the safest bet to be a useful player for a long time.

Right now ill rank it

Palmieri
Coyle
Etem

Well that's a ridiculous statement.
