    Im not sure how Oskar and Shane are ahead of Bear.

    But whatever

    I’m not sure how Shane is ranked at all other than people remember the hype coming out of college and him getting ice time right away in the Cup run. Gibson and Bear last two for me.

    Because they're all fringe players and long shot projects at this point. My preference is the one that was passable in his cup of coffee, even if his upside at this point is as a 13/14 energy forward.

    If you say so. I personally think Gibson and Bear have a higher chance of contributing at the NHL level than Gersich. I would suspect Gersich is an after-thought for the organization at this point.

    Nathan Walker also got NHL games at various points. I think they're fairly similar ultimately...and Walker even has better AHL numbers and more of an effective energy game. But it's splitting hairs in a pretty weak system either way.

    Malenstyn for me is the replacement level end point. The 6-10 group have slight chances of being something a bit better. After Beck are the long shots. It still hinges on the top group and generally maxing out all of them into more dynamic, well-rounded players. Hopefully Laviolette and the staff get to start that work sooner than later.

    By no means is my selection of Gersich an ringing endorsement of high hopes for Gersich.We're talking the 17th best prospect in a shallow organization. All of these players are less than 10% odds of having a meaningful NHL career.

    I do think Gibson and Hughes have a lot of potential to be NHL players, but they're just so far away that I can't have much confidence in that.

    I think most thought Gersich would be an NHL player when he was their age.

    (Voted Bear. His late start into high level organized hockey programs make me dream that he still has a ton of untapped/untrained potential.)
