Yep we would.

No Scott? I'm disappointed.


I wonder which prospect will become the eventual whipping boy? I'm guessing Grigorenko unless he maxes his potential.

Ennis and Hodgson have another year of "this side/that side" whipping left

Jake McCabe. I think his future is a top 4, jack of all trades, do everything defenseman. I think he's a glue type that every defense needs.

I was gushing over his defensive game at the WJC. If he can be that mistake-free as a pro, I hope he never leaves the organization.

I watched some Wisconsin games - not many. But after seeing him at the WJC, I can't wait till he gets to the big club. I think he comes up for his 10 day, with the intention of gaining experience, and never goes back down.

Bakes only half-jokingly compared him to Suter.

Says a lot about his poise.

I'm going with Pysyk.
If the popular definition of "prospect" allows for some brief NHL experience, then I'd put Pysyk at the top of the list. He exhibited a lot of poise, intelligence and great decision-making along with fluid mobility - all assets necessary for success.

However, if one deems a "prospect" as an amateur without pro experience, I'd also choose McCabe, based on his impresssive showing at the WJC.
