Summer Prospect Poll 2013: #1

This usually falls to Ruck around this time, but he hasn't been on in a week or so and I'm getting impatient. I'll throw them up until he PMs me he wants to take it back over.

_______________________________

Pick your choice, nominate a body to add to the poll, and speak up if there are any notable omissions.

_______________________________

Some Eligible Additions

F: Justin Bailey, Nicholas Baptiste, Dan Catenacci, JT Compher, Brian Flynn, Connor Hurley, Christian Isackson, Justin Kea, Sean Malone, Brad Navin, Logan Nelson, Judd Peterson, Tim Schaller, Kevin Sundher, Corey Tropp

D: Mark Adams, Brady Austin, Nick Crawford, Anthony Florentino, Jerome Gauthier-Leduc, Matt MacKenzie, Chad Ruhwedel

G: Connor Knapp, Nathan Lieuwen, Andrey Makarov, Cal Peterson, Linus Ullmark

_______________________________

My $0.02 = this should easily be the most contentiously enjoyable prospect ranking in my decade on these boards. Simply put, we are LOADED with guys who have the early makings of impact NHLers - of varying types and breeds - and the top 15 should be very interesting to debate.
_______________________________

***** the following language from the HF prospect criteria page is my reasoning for omitting Marcus Foligno and his 61GP from the list: *****

Quote:
...for players that are close to either the 65-game (skaters) or 45-game (goaltenders) benchmark but have also clearly "arrived" as NHL players, HF reserves the right to remove these players from consideration as prospects and instead consider these players graduated.
He has arrived in that he's not going back to the AHL, he's an NHLer, and in my mind will simply waste a poll somewhere down the line.

Egads.

I think Grigorenko still has the highest ceiling of any of our prospects, so I'm voting him.


The add is incredibly difficult. Add Bailey.

Wow this prospect pool is DEEP.

Add Flynn, he's steady and NHL-proven.

I figured we'd get there... but if more people agree, it can't hurt...

Grigs, because even after the rather unsuccessfull first season he has still got the talent of the potential franchise player.

Add Makarov.

I bought his jersey(albeit with left over Sabre Bucks), so I have to go with Grigorenko. Add Bailey.

Not here. He's no longer a prospect -- he's in the NHL to stay.

However you'd like to do it is fine with me. I don't foresee myself wanting add any of the aforementioned for awhile but it's nice to have my choices right in front of me.

I went Grigorenko.

Visions of him performing for years like he did against the Isles in Game 48. I really, truly hope he hits the mark.

I went back and watched that game again recently just to make sure I wasn't remembering Grigs being better than he actually was. I wasn't. He looked like a future star in that game. Hopefully we see some more where that came from this year.
