At this point I have Broda, Endras, Larsson, and Zucker all equal, so I voted Endras as he's closest to the show IMO.

Larsson. I think he has the biggest potential with a good year in the SEL

Here's my impressions of those guys:

Broda - lots of goal scoring potential but poor skating might not translate well to the pro game at all

Endras - well developed and very good goalie, great reflexes and lateral movement, but a bit small

Larsson - decent player who had one explosive tournament, need more sample size

Zucker - to me he seems like a third liner with a bit of second line upside

For me it was a toss-up between Bulmer and Larsson.

In the end I went with Bulmer, because "B" comes before "L" in the alphabet.

My reasoning had to do with numbers.

I watch Bulmer here in Kelowna and have posted about him before on your boards. Like I have said, he has all the skill, talent and size to be an amazing player, but he needs to realize his potential. He has all the tools and a great coaching staff here in Kelowna. Some people thought the pick was too high but what you got is potential, and tons of it. Because of the potential I would rate him higher.

Haula.

Larsson, Bulmer, Haula, all considered raw and projects. But Haula tore it up in the USHL so he's a step closer to reaching his stated potential.

Been voting for Larsson since #7 I think. I think he's going to be a "baller", or the hockey equivalent of that (stud?). I am a bit partial to Swedes, but I still have that feeling he'll pan out to be a top-6 player.

I voted Bulmer with my last vote so I'll just go with it again. I think the sum of all his tools in addition to the amount of developmental time he'll be afforded may translate to him having the highest upside of whats available. And where we currently are in the process, that won out.

Psssht, numbers are so overrated. My numbers go like this.

I went to the NHL.com website and clicked on the players tab at the top. I then clicked on B to see how many players had last names starting with the letter B. The answer was 105.

Then I clicked L, to see how many players had last names starting with L. The number: 69.

Therefore I concluded that Bulmer has a better chance at making it to the pro level than Larsson does.
