My first change from my earlier list (voting for goalies continuously is boring). It's Nemeth for me here. I really like his combination of physicality, first pass ability, and proximity to being NHL ready. I think he's an NHL'er, while everybody else on the list (sans Connauton) is quite a ways from being that close.
Guptill will probaby jump to Texas at the end of the season, just like Chiasson and Smith did 2 years ago.
I believe he still needs an ELC though. But not totally sure on that.
Having an ELC makes him ineligible to play in the NCAA, so he won't have one until the Stars decide he's ready to play in Texas.
Been voting for Connauton for 3 or 4 polls now, looks like I'll get to stop voting for him pretty soon. Nemeth being a good defensive D-man makes him exciting but I think Connaution is both closer to the NHL and has a higher ceiliing. Undoubtedly they're completely different kinds of d-men but one is a more exciting prospect, even if he has a lower floor than Nemeth does.
