    Steve Bernier was on Dustin Penner's 2007 level last season, but he broke his foot this season and never recovered. Hopefully he's back to normal.

    Ryan and Okposo are probably the top 2 prospects not in the NHL.

    What about Max Pacioretty? How good do you figure he can get?
     
  9. JVR is not better then.....

    Blake Wheeler or Eric Fehr?

    James Sheppard doesent even play the powerfoward game...the same with Eric Fher.

    Max Pacioretty is a top powerforward prospect. He is quite raw offensively but he is finding it fast and he is in incredible shape.

    Kalus is a pretty good one. James Neal could be another.

    Ryan is the top guy but I think we got a pretty good one in Chris Stewart as well

    Troy Brouwer looks to be developing nicely and he plays a power forward game.

    Trevor Lewis isn't a powerforward type player. Boyle is probably the best powerforward prospect the Kings have right now.

    Oh and if Aliu gets his head sorted out he could become a good power forward. Obviously not top-10 now but he could be in a year or two.

    Boyle is a defensmen now so cratch him.

    I'm wondering as Habs fan how great offensively can Pacioretty get? He was 10th on the Habs list at the draft.

    Actually, that's still to be decided. They WANT to try him at defense, but they also recognize the benefits of a 6'7 C down the middle.

    Boyle really to me just doesn't have the killer instinct enough to really be considered a PF. That's why I'd leave him off.

    I wouldn't consider Mueller a power forward. He knows how to use his size for positioning and puck protection, but he's not physical enough without the puck for the label. The only Coyotes prospect who could be considered is Blake Wheeler, and even he is only somewhat consistent in the physical aspect of the game. He's getting there, though, and it's something he seems to be actively working on, which is more than I can say for Mueller.
