Last one was pretty obvious that Callahan won, so I went ahead and started the next one.

Went with McCollum this time, he still has the talent just needs to regain his confidence and consistency

The Marchenko votes are a little surprising to me.

Among the options available I get the impression from the scouting reports that Marchenko, Ouellet and Jensen have a very similar type of upside as solid No. 4 puck moving dmen with decent size and serviceable offensive abilities for the power play but offensive touch is not an exceptional aspect to their game.

I would think that if you had to choose someone among those three that people would pick Jensen above the other two, especially when you consider that his progress was really good this past year.

Went with Ouellet because it makes me feel like a big man.

Andersson again. Easily the most NHL-ready guy left of those remaining. Will be what Franzen was when he got here, IF he can improve his skating just a bit.

McCollum for me. Still very high potential, despite struggles. I met Tommy last summer, and he was saying how much he liked working out with Ozzie. I'm really hoping that Ozzie can pull him out of the dumps, because I get the feeling he doesn't like coach Fraser nearly as much.

I missed a few votes, since I just returned from 2 weeks in Punta Cana. Interesting list, so far. No big surprises.

True, but the fact is Marchenko played 23 games in the 2nd best league in the world last season and will likely be a regular with his team this season. He's also very likely to be Russia's captain at the upcoming WJC's. Jensen (15 months older than Marchenko) just played his first full year of college hockey and despite performing very well, the NCAA is far from the KHL.

Wow, it's hard to believe we're at #16 and we've still got all these very potential names on the list.

Went with Andersson. Very close to being a NHLer.

Went McCollum. Could be flipping burgers or could be a starter. Who knows. Hes trending towards Burger King but I'm thinking Ozzie will change that.

I feel as though Larsson needs to squeak in the top 20. The door might actually be closed but I honestly thought he'd be our back up by now.

After McCollum gets in I'm going Ferraro, Anderson, larsson, Ouellet, marchenko, Nestrasil. Probably in that order. Might have to stretch this ***** out to 25.

Been a wings fan a long time. Best prospect pool we've had.

Add Nicastro, Fournier, Lashoff or Larsson.

I think Ouellet is being very heavily underrated on this board.

Ouellet. The more I read about him, the more I'm excited to see him in the future. He's the captain of his junior team now too.

Add Backman, Coetzee or Larsson.

Agree with your take on Marchenko and Andersson.

I'm not voting for McCollum until he does the opposite of what he's been doing.

I voted Ferraro before I realized Oullet is still left. How is he still left? Everyone on the prospects board loves him, he seems to be really underrated on the Wings board.
