Girgs. Him and Larsson are neck and neck, though.

I'm a little surprised McCabe hasn't gotten a single vote yet. He will be next for me, ahead of Larsson.

Man, Pysyk-Girgensons-Larsson is a really nice group for our second tier of prospects (and very hard to order, imo), especially considering they're all pretty sure bets to at least be solid 3rd liner/2nd pairing-level players. Just have to hope our first tier of Grigorenko and Armia pan out.

He's raw at this point, but I'm high on him. He's right there with Larsson, imo. Larsson has proven more. That's why I pick him next.

I'm not surprised, but you could make an argument for McCabe. With the exception of Grigorenko and arguably Girgensons, these guys being discussed have all proved more and are further along in their development. McCabe is probably close to Pysyk in terms of where he ends up as an NHLer, but Pysyk is further along and has performed each step of the way. Pysyk also has more ceiling defensively, imo, but it's close.

It gets tough for me after Pysyk-Girgs-Larsson. I'm not sure where Hackett should fit in but surely he has to be slotted in soon. Really have no idea who I'll pick after next round.

I struggled between McNabb, McCabe and Girgs.

I hope and think that McNabb will bring his game back to where it was two years ago and the end of this year and bring some solid nasty d to the pros. God knows we need some snarl back there.

This one's close. I think if this poll was a week ago, Larsson would win. After Girgensons' playoff performance, though, I imagine he'll win this.

I'm going Larsson, add Kea. But of Larsson, Girgs, and McCabe, I can envision a scenario where each of them become the best or worst player in that group.

I am loving the idea of seeing Larsson and Girgs (hopefully) for the next ten years

As someone who isn't exactly nuts about the idea to put Girgensons in Rochester this year, I'm pleased with how he came along after the concussion. He's my vote, add Kea.

Tough call between Girgs and Larsson. Went with Girgensons. Add Kea.

Basically a coin flip between Larsson and Girgensons, went with Larsson.

Kea because that's what the cool kids are doing.

McNabb's flaws are well-documented, but he could be a valuable piece for sure. When was the last time we had a defenseman who provided offense and sandpaper? I'd still rank Larsson and McCabe ahead of him right now though.

Braydon McNabb will be our most underrated prospect in this poll.

Larsson is further along than Girgensons but I still take Girgensons as I like his offensive tools and skating better, two very good prospects
