I like Spaling as a player. I think O'Reilly is finally stepping into his role in the NHL and it's starting to pay dividends. Loved his game last night with Wilson and Tootoo. However, I am going to go out on a limb and go with Taylor Beck. His size skill combo and his development in juniors this year have me thinking we may have gotten a steal later in the draft. If he fills out a little bit I am thinking, and this is a stretch, Iginla light. Just a guess there of course and he needs some work but I think his ceiling is extremely high. I thought he and Latta were dependent upon one another but he has stood on his own and done very well for himself.

Now it starts to get fuzzy, IMO.

Been hearing great things about Roussel, but I don't know much about him.

Beck is top 10 in scoring in the OHL.

O'Reilly, Santorelli, Spaling, and Sulzer are close to transitioning their game to the NHL.

I need to see some more of these guys play, but based off of readings and what I've heard, I'll pick Roussel

I picked O'Reilly. He's pretty close to making the step into the NHL. The top three or five can be picked by pure skill and potential, but by now I have to go with who is ready to contribute. It's tough to pick a defenseman based on that criteria considering the depth we have on the blueline right now. We definitely need some young, talented forwards to come up. (Yeah depth probably isn't the most fair way of picking "best prospect", but as I said after three or five in my mind it's all about what you can give me now.)

It's getting tougher, though. We have some pretty good prospects getting close to making the NHL leap. If half of them pan out like we hope the future is looking bright. Provided, of course, part of that half includes at least one good goaltender.

I went with Geoffrion, he has progressed each year to a pretty good goal scorer and it is possible he could play some when injuries hit next year. I also believe that he has more upside than Spaling/Thurresson.

I went with Spaling. No reason just like him more than most do.

I'm voting for COR here due to his ability to both move the puck and play a nasty physical shutdown game as well. I like the comparison to Weber and look forward to watching his development.

With my vote, COR has a 2 to 1 lead and I'm gonna declare him the winner and move on to the next poll.
