Hollweg is likely going to max out at a 3rd line player and isn't that far ahead of Bahensky in development. Bahensky could easily end up as a 2nd line player.

Bahensky it is.

EASILY end up as a 2nd liner? I don't know about all that... risk vs. reward... if everything works out for Bahensky then he might be a 2nd liner. Hollweg has pretty much shown he can be on a 4th line, and quite possibly a 3rd. I'll take Hollweg...

Bahensky, only because of upside. Hollweg IMO has already solidified a spot on the Rangers 4th line, but I really don't see him moving any higher on the depth chart.

At the same age Hollweg where pretty far ahead of Bahensky in all areas, Hollweg put up much better points and played in the WJC where he actually put up very decent numbers too, 4 points in 6 games. Unknown doesn't mean potential. Actually Bahensky have to develop allot to even come close to where Hollweg is today. The fact that Bahensky was cut by a weak Czech WJC team says allot.

Actually the biggest fuzz Bahensky have created is a write-up on newyorkrangers.com. If the same amount of attention where put on prospects 3 years ago it wouldn't even be a issue, Hollweg defenitly doesn't deserve to be ranked behind a kid who have done nothing so far in his hockey career... ( )

This poll should be kept open untill Hollweg have more votes then Bahensky. No matter how long it will take.

Unfortunately, it does. A mediocre player that's 18 generally has higher potential than one that's 25.

Maybe we should put Hollweg ahead of Korpikoski then.

Hollweg would win if this ends in a tie since he had more votes on the original #25 poll.

I voted for the more NHL ready player. That would be Mr. Hollweg. I love the way he plays the game. I see him as an energizer bunny on our fourth line. He will make the team.

Nah, Korpikoski was a top scorer in the U-18 WJC.

Seriously though, I understand your point. But if you look at it that way, we have to do this ranking again and list Furrer ahead of Tyutin, right?

The way I see it Bahensky was cut from the Czech WJC national team. He scored 29 points in 52 games in the Czech junior league. He have yet too once in hsi career do anything better then averege at any level.

Just look at the comments about him added after he was drafted at newyorkrangers.com. They pretty much sums it all. It goes like "he looks like a decent player on the backcheck with his size and skating".

You know, what irks me is that a 3rd rounder who gets a nice writeup on the n.y.r.com suddenly is ranked higher then a player who have a great shoot at making it to the big league. Realisticly, something like 10 players from the top two rounds establish themselfs in the NHL. Bahensky was a 3rd round pick, and have been a huge dissapointment point wise in juniors. 31 points in 66 games... Cut from the WJC, from a team with only a couple of players drafted higher then Bahensky.

All fair points and I am starting to come around on Hollweg. It all depends on how you view things. Hollweg has a 90% chance of becoming a solid fourth liner for the Ranger. Bahensky has, say, a 50% chance of becoming a 2nd-3rd liner. It all depends on what you value more. I just happen to think that Bahenksy brings more to the table whereas Hollweg brings hitting and forechecking. I think his defensive awareness is average and his offense from juniors has not transferred to the AHL and will not transfer to the NHL.

I should also mention that I have both Bahensky and Hollweg much further down on my list. I've been pulling for Guenin the past two rounds.
