    Slim pickins round now.

    McRae and Grachev have probably seen the last of the Blues organization, it seems. Gardiner is putting up some numbers but it's at a low level of competition. Ponich is imposing but hasn't put his game together. Walters, Saari, and Shattock all seem to be low-ceiling players with a lot to prove still. Tremblay is average-at-best among his peers but goalies can be notoriously late bloomers.

    Here's probably my list from here on out:

    Gardiner
    Saari
    Tremblay
    Ponich
    Shattock
    Walters

    I can't really bring myself to rate McRae or Grachev because I don't see how they fit in the organization anymore, even if they put up monster numbers overseas. It looks like their windows of opportunity have passed.

    Comparing the rest of the list to the Blues website, there seem to be a few current prospects missing.

    Sebastian Wannstrom
    Maxwell Tardy
    David Sheilds
    Stephen MacAuley

    Tardy is no longer Blues property, neither is MacAuley, he's with Montreal now.

    I orally thought Wannstrom was already picked. To me, he's a top 20 prospect.

    I thought Wännström was already picked. If he had been listed, I'd have chosen him. i think he should be ahead of Pochiro, Beach, Tesink, and, possibly, MacEachern.

    Next year when we do this, I'd really appreciate if the strict definition of a prospect is agreed upon and we only include those people as eligible to be voted for.

    If they're still technically a prospect but some folks don't consider them as viable for the Blues any more....we should decide what to do. I'd favor including them, but I think the confusion around this point made most of my votes irrelevant.

    Tremblay, he's looked decent this year.

    Wannstrom would be further up the list for me as well. Perhaps we have a separate poll to vote for his position in this poll? We definitely shouldn't be this low.

    Gardiner took it. Since this poll only managed 15 votes in almost a week, and the regular season is upon us, I think it's time to let it die.

    When we do this again next year, we can try to start it a bit earlier and come up with some ground rules ahead of time.
