I don't know who to go for here. It's between Dietz, Berger and Quailer I think.

From the sounds of it, Dietz is a really sturdy defenseman, with no weaknesses, and his offensive game really picked up as the season progressed.
Berger has a lot potential as a powerforward with a bit of a mean streak, I hope he gets a lot of ice-time in Hamilton.
Quailer had a disappointing season, so let's hope he's able to bounce back, he seems to have a lot of tools.

Berger will climb in the top-10 before the end of the season.

I went with Dietz. I see him continuing to develop and making it as an all around d-man. Everyone else has way more question marks than him IMO.

So. Mathieu Carle was traded. I'm thinking I'll take him out, and start a poll to see where we should put Mitera.

Or should we just pretend this didn't just happen?

Take Carle out and wait until we've voted on every prospect. At the end, make a poll asking people to rank Mitera within the rankings we've made.

Some game reports on him shutting down the OHL stars and scoring load of goals, big, gritty and a good fighter. He was pretty dominant in his last OHL year.

It's a bold prediction that i wouldn't defend that much, but still thinking he's gonna be realy good in the AHL this upcoming season. He might get some spotlight at the camp.

He's pretty much what we hoped Shultz would be.

He also has the name of a French crooner, so i hope he can sign some tunes during his interviews, would be neat.

Pretty much every fight video I've seen with Berger, he loses.

I just saw 2 vids and he lost, but some guys who follow the OHL said he was a very good fighter on the prospect thread.

How come Dietz, and to a lesser extent Pribyl are getting more votes than Didier, is it because he's American?

I voted Dumont, he'll be a real solid Lapierre clone in the future.

Edit: Also, are we just going to 20? Guys like Johnson, Mayer, Masse and to a lesser extent Cichy have almost no future with the organization imo and don't really need to be added.

Potential top 9 forwards are always going to get rated higher than defensemen that are hard to peg, and the CHL is a better barometer of potential NHL talent than the USHL, especially when it comes to defensemen. Hope that answers your question adequately.

I'm pretty curious about that myself. That guy just screams large bodied complimentary player to two very talented linemates to me (hence why his linemates were drafted so highly, while he went undrafted).

I didn't mean to imply a bias against Americans in my question, but more like you suggested; A player playing in the CHL will get more attention than one playing down south, but Didier sounds like a great prospect.
