    If hockey was a game based around funny names, then Wacey rabbit.
    But yeah, i like Jakub Kindl quite abit, but Rask easily. Not one single of those guys are franchise players, or a prospect that you really want.

    None.

    But if I HAD to pick one, I'd pick Syvret.

    Exactly what he said. If I had to pick somebody, it would be Rask, but generally speaking, I would trade any 5 of those guys for Ovechkin, Vanek, Staal....somebody to really build a team around.

    well, i wouldn't around any of those players mentioned. But, if i had to choose, i'd go with Rask or Parent.

    Rask is a steady goaltender, has loads of potential, and is the only notiable goalie prospect in the leafs stable. He should be given every chance to make the NHL.

    Parent is a very steady stay-at-home type defenseman. He isn't flashy at all, but gets his job done.

    IMO, the others on the list will be depth players or busts.

    Ok so there are no franchise players on this list, who has the most potential to succeed in the NHL? Who is the dark horse?

    To be fair to the original poster, he did not say which league. I think that he was actually referring to his local street hockey league.

    None of them. I'd probably just sign Steve Thomas and build my team around him instead. But if I HAD to pick, it'd be Rask/Frazee/Pelletier... any of the goalies really, and then pray to God that he pans out.

    Rask easy...none of the other have franchise leading talent..at least Rask has the ability to carry a team by himself.

    Have to be Rask no real star prospects but Rask does have a high ceiling and he is a goalie so u can build around a goalie if he pans out.

    Poluluk atleast has the potential to be a franchise player, though I think the probability of him reaching his top end is very low.

    The real answer is who knows, Rask is probably worth the most on the list but Kindl's potential is just as good.

    As a Red Wing fan I like what Kindl is doing now and hopfully in 3 years from now we'll be looking at another Niklas Kronwall kind of d-man, in other words I have faith in the Red Wing scouts :)

    Rask is the only one who could potentially be someone to build a team around. The rest are complimentary players. Mikkelson, Syvret, Kindl are all d-men that should have long careers but not necessarily top pairing guys.
