I thought/think so. First time I voted in 4 rounds for that reason.

White. I wonder if he will end up as a trigger man on right wing with Schroeder, or second line center?

Add Matt Pope, Taylor Matson, Steven Anthony, and Mats Froshaug.

Alex Bolduc.

Bolduc saw NHL action last season for us, and probably will again this year. Has a solid chance of developing into an NHL checking-line center.

At this point, I'd be surprised if White was ever as good of a prospect (or as likely to see NHL action) as Bolduc is now.

Add Guillaume Desbiens.

Voted Walsky as he's closer in age and ability to reaching his potential than anyone else on the list.

Add Pope

If White was a 4th round pick I'm pretty damn sure that he wouldn't be taken at #11. There's nothing in his game right now to suggest he could be a 3rd line grinder. I hope the guy proves me wrong, but I'm not holding my breath.

I voted for Andersson. From everything I've read about him, he sounds like a solid defenceman. He's a Gradin pick too so that doesn't hurt either. So yeah, I'll take his potential at 18 over Pat White's potential as a 20 year old.

Walsky, Pope, and White all put up similar numbers in the NCAA. I see no reason to take any of them now.

Not much choice here. Might as well go with the most talented of the group.

Funny that White actually won the last round by 5 votes but was destroyed in the "tie-breaker". How does that even work?

The psychology of people voting for 'new' prospects over guys close to the NHL is kinda interesting.

Do people realize that Walsky is actually a year older than Bolduc and Desbiens? And was a healthy scratch for the entire AHL playoffs while Bolduc and Desbiens were two of the top players on a Calder Cup finalist?

I really like both those players, especially Desbiens. Both players, imo have a slightly lower ceiling than Walsky(2nd liner), though both are probably more likely to make the NHL, as at least 4th liners, and sooner.

Walsky was a newbie to the team, and isn't a starlet (Hodgson). I doubt there were any plans to get Walsky into the lineup, especially to supplant a team member who earned it. Walsky needs at least 1 year in the ahl, more of a project IMO. He needs size and experience.

You shouldn't have Connauton as winning by 70%. At least write "tiebreaker", so it isn't misleading, IMO.

I vote White, because I think he probably has the highest ceiling of the guys left. I guess. Add Desbiens.

Yeah that's why I linked it to the poll. I was going up put 70% in tiebreak, but that didn't look as good.

I'll add as many players as I can for the next poll.

Okay, fair enough, thanks. This looks decent if you don't like how it is now:

10. Kevin Connauton - 38.86% - Tiebreaker; 70.00%

But, that's unnecessary, and it looks fine the way you have it.

It was tied after 3 days, so I made a tiebreak poll that Connauton won.

this is exactly what I was thinking. Even though I didnt vote for white in the other thread, but if he won fair and square, Patrick White should not be an option in this thread. I also wasnt aware the Konnauton vs White was a tie breaker poll, nothing really mentioned it as tie breaker. Oh well. Now its all confusing.

Actually, since Connauton won the tiebreaker, shouldn't White automatically be #11 for even making it to the tiebreaker?

The easiest explanation would be that the people who voted for other prospects in the #10 thread preferred Connauton over White.

If you're interested in a more technical explanation, Arrow's impossibility theorem might be applicable
