Still going with Beck. I think Josi could be something special but I wonder if Grinder is right in the sense that he could be made of glass.

Josi seems like the obvious choice here, but Beck and Lindback could be set for a battle royale next round.

I'd say Jani Lajunen. Making his NA debut this season after spending the past few years playing in the SM-liiga. Jani was one of the last additions to the Finnish entry into the World Championships this past season where he was expected to play a small, primarily defensive role, but wound up scoring a couple of goals and helping Finland offensively en route to the gold medal in the tournament.

Lajunen could very well play in Nashville at some point this season depending on his adjustment to the AHL. People aren't familiar with him now, but I think he's definitely a guy that will be making a name for himself this season...

I'll be honest, I voted Josi for this spot and am planning on going with Ekholm for No. 4. I know a lot of people are going to cringe when they see me say that I think our top four prospects are defensemen, but they really are that good.

We have a good group of forwards coming up though too that will likely fill out most of the top 10 as we go...

I'll agree with SLake on this one that Lajunen should be added. As long as Lindy is on there, Atte won't get any votes. Plus most have Hellberg above him.

Can we close this thing up? It's early....but its kinda a blowout.

EDIT: I think Beck, Lindback, Ekholm, and Smith all have a shot at this next one....should be interesting.

You could add Joonas Rask too. He's looked good at prospects camp as well. Could be a nice late round steal.

I don't think Lindback is a prospect anymore.

I went with Beck. Josi will be my next pick.

Durability is hard to predict, but I think you're right. Both are special players, but I see Beck reaching above and beyond. Beck here.
