I'm going off the board a little bit and picked Ferland. This guy could actually be an impact player for the Flames one day in the near future.

Wasn't a big fan of what he did in junior last year, but this year will be much more telling.

Personally, I think that Cundari has the capacity to make more of an impact than we are giving him credit for.

Possibly. Hes already 23 though so its hard to rank him with a lot of these other players.

I honestly don't know if his offense will translate from Junior. I think he's got bottom six potential still though.

Ergo he's ready, which can be seen as a bonus. Also, dat wrist shot.

Seems like a high-energy guy who has lots of tools to bring to the table. Hard to say what's going to limit his offensive game, and he seems to be pretty intelligent on how to use his small stature defensively.

I think he's got other intangibles that will allow him to play in the NHL. He's a guy that other players do not want to go up against, I hope he gets a callup this season at some point.

He looks just like Karlsson, except hes about 5 inches smaller than Karlsson.
One thing I'll add about Ortio was that, in his first AHL stint, I recall he was very, very passive. He doesn't try to work around the guys screening him and doesn't give them a slight jab if he needs them to move. Kiprusoff is passive but he has the vision as well as moved around to get a better look to know where the puck was anyways. Ortio hasn't given me signs of this vision yet and I haven't seen him exude this in video I've seen of him since his return to Europe. I think this is also what let him to look like he wa swimming in the crease during his time with the Heat. Granted, this is only in video and the opportunities to focus on this are few and far between, so take it for what it's worth.

That is literally the only major knock on him and the only reason he didn't go in the 2nd-3rd round of the draft.
Another thought I had about Brossoit is that, having seen him a few times, he has a bit of Quick's and Kiprusoff's "never out" mentality. Brossoit does have mental issues which will likely define his ceiling, in particular when he starts giving up soft goals, but he tries on each shot and won't stop fighting to make the stop.

Brossoit.

I said it once, and I will say it again. I am not voting for any player that is not on an ELC.
The differential in the developmental time between those players, and the 18/19 year old kids is simply to large to factor in. Bouma / Cundari / Breen are already fringe NHL players, and will play (however briefly) in the NHL next season. In that sense, I fail to see how they are "prospects".

Add Ramage.
