I'm not saying that they are #1 (I think Florida is), but I'm shocked that no one has mentioned them yet.

Granlund, Zucker, Larsson, Coyle & Brodin are all great prospects and have been impressive in the WJC camp

Lucia & Phillips are high-upside guys if they make it to the NHL.

Scandella (if still considered a prospect) is an elite one, and if Cuma ever regains his health, he's a stud. Hacket & Kuemper give them very good goaltending depth at different stages in their development, and the've got some other guys who could be very nice role players for them (i.e. Falk & Gillies).

They've turned things around pretty quickly there, in spite of the Leddy disaster. Things are looking very bright, and their pool is extremely underrated it seems.

Thats kind of the way I look at it.......

So I would say its close between NYI and EDM


Tavares
Hall
RNH
Nino
Strome....


On defense NYI also have Hamonic and de Hann.....EDM has Klefbom and Musil

Ya, we fans have liked how things have progressed in terms of the prospect pool. Fletcher has had his hands in most every avenue he can to add talent, something we didn't see from the previous regime.

As far as goaltenders two more Wild prospects have also been at camp, Gustafsson for Sweden and Michalek for the US.

I know many wouldn't but I'd argue this point. Roy won the starting job for Team Canada WJHC team last year, Bunz looks to have a good shot at one of the top two spots this year. Then there are the two Finns we drafted whom both have solid resumes. I'm not saying this is an uber elite group but I think we are as good off as most teams at this position.

I've seen one person mention Nashville, I'm surprised there's not more...

Jonathan Blum
Roman Josi
Ryan Ellis
Austin Watson
Taylor Beck
Charles Olivier Roussel
Anders Lindback
Chet Pickard
Teemu Laakso
Blake Geoffrion
Michael Latta
Magnus Hellberg

They pump out Defense and Goalies like no one else. I'd put them anywhere from 4-7

Florida for me is hands down the winner. I like the Sens as well, along with LA, Colorado, Carolina, Minnesota , Edmonton, St. Louis, Detroit and some others.

Surprised to see people mentioning Toronto in this mix but only one person mentioned Detroit. Hmm seems odd I dont really see what Toronto has that Detroit doesnt...

Gonna make a thread about this so not to derail this one

I'm surprised not many have Nashville in the top-5. I'd go:

Sens
Panthers
Preds
Islanders
Oilers

So I don't see what's so funny.

Personally I have Florida #1 though.

Dallas prospect poll is pretty solid, not top 5 quality but it could be in the top 10. Although IMO without a doubt the Stars have the best goalie prospects right now.

Bachman
Beskorowany
Campbell

All three have good chance to be our number goalie in the future and all three are in our top 11 prospect from out boards out of 20 prospects.

I think Nashville has an underrated pool, and should be in the mix for #1 as well.

Crap. Yup forgot about them. They probably boast the best defenseman and goalie prospects.
