    Anderson should've gotten Siemens spot so we could pick Lievermann as our HM here, cause that kid could rise a lot in next year's vote once we see him at the next level.

    I voted Barron, but who knows, maybe it's finally Josh's time.

    No idea where to rank any of the goalies.

    Stupid question time...what is HM?

    Looks like Anderson is going to take this poll so I'll be taking Leivermann next followed by Kvaca.

    The next level being the BCHL? Probably won't get much hype unless he wins MVP or something.

    I can see the argument for Anderson but I'm thinking Barron. Maybe he's just a AHL type but he probably gets signed. I like the kid.

    Barron didn't really take much of a step forward in gameplay this year. Seems like a good character guy but I'm not sure that's going to be enough to let him carve out more than a bottom 6 AHL role.

    He did, it just wasn't points. He was the emotional and physical driving force of the team.

    From the Black Book on his season

    We are in the likely career AHL tier here anyway

    Not saying he'll get the kind of hype Makar will get if he contends for the Hobey Baker as a freshman or anything; but more of us should get a chance to watch him this coming season. And from the sounds of things he could leave a good impression on those of us that do catch him...at least enough to move ahead of the career AHLers and some of the third-pairing-at-best prospects.

    I get it that you expect him to be more of an AHLer instead of the NHL which is fine. However, I suggest we drafted him for his ability to grind out on the bottom line(s) similar to McLeod. Barron doesn't possess a lot of potential or talent, but the kid is a good skater, oozes character, has a good two-way ability, anticipates the play well, and is a titanium bulldog on the forecheck. Considering those strengths, I don't think it's unreasonable to have the expectations of him making the NHL, even if all he becomes is just a #12th forward. I do agree that he needs to step up some of his offencive game, or we have another Garrett Meurs on our hands.

    What has Kvaca done to be considered a better prospect than Werner?

    Werner didn't have a great season, sub .900 save %. I'll admit I didn't lay eyes on him, and I'm not even a very good goalie scout regardless, but I like Kvaca's attitude and post-draft comments about working hard. This is long-shot territory here so I'm just going purely on gut.

    Not that this makes a huge difference, though it means something early on, but Kvaca was drafted higher than Werner...:dunno:

    Kvaca had the better year and reviews out of rookie camp favoured Kvaca over Werner as well.

    I see. I'd question the quality of competition there but if the rookie camp went that way too then that's something.

    Werner had a great start to the season where he stole the starting job, then fell back to earth. Could have been natural growing pains at the position (and the product of a bad team). In reality, I doubt either end up being anything to write home about.

    Yup which is why they are in the HM category. Would it kill management to grab a goalie in the draft that is highly touted for good reasons once every 3 years? Grab your obscure Euro goalies where you want all the other years but lets try avoiding shooting ourselves in the foot here.

    Same story as before, special poll I'll put up shortly.

    Every time I slack on putting up the next poll there's a signing. So perhaps next time it will be the Duchene trade. :laugh:
