    Thompson has emerged this year as a contender to develop into a top 6 goal-scoring RW. Anderson, Clarke, Moynihan and Zetterberg all have very sound mid-6 RW potential. Bastian and Studenic can both be nice bottom 6 RWs, and Gritsyuk/Pasic are both left-shots who play a lot on the right side. So we're not thin there. But I agree that we lack a surefire first-line type stud RW, and Holtz would certainly fit that bill. My only question with taking Holtz is that I'm even higher on the overall potential of Stutzle and Rossi.

    As far as Drysdale goes, I agree with you again that the Devils need some prospect depth at RD, and lack any first-pairing type prospects there (unless you move Ty Smith to the right side, where he's primarily played in Spokane). But the Devils also lack blue-chip scoring forwards outside of perhaps Boqvist, so I think the Devils should simply draft the player they think is the best overall prospect at #6. For me that would be a choice between Stutzle/Rossi, were they available.

    Drysdale could be there. I think Stutzle is a slim chance, but that chance exists. Again, it's very close between 3-8, and the number of configurations different teams are going to rank these kids in will be staggering. And that's not even taking into account that Lundell and Sanderson will certainly be in some teams' top 8s.

    I voted "Other" 'cause there is no option for "I don't care which player we select. He's going to be damn good". :thumbu:

    @StevenToddIves Now that there’s more time on our hands, would you be so kind as to rank the top forward prospects for each of the following attribute categories, respectively?

    Shot
    Skating
    Two-way acumen
    Vision/Creativity
    Compete Level
    Physicality
    Hands

    If you could rank the prospects based on highest ceiling and highest floor, that would also be helpful. Lastly, if there is a prospect outside of “the elite 8” (sans Drysdale since he plays a different position) that you feel merits inclusion, feel free to list. IE- Quinn could be mentioned for his shot.

    I think the attribute rankings could help those of us who are torn between these kids who are ranked so closely together.

    Many thanks as always!!

    PS: It looks like the consensus from my fellow Devils fans is similar to mine: Drysdale, Stutzle, Rossi and then a bit of separation with Holtz (though I would not be disappointed at all if he is the selection). I very much want one of these players at 6.

    Drysdale or Stutzle would be a dream.

    He would sit between the beanie babies and my 8 track tapes of all the early Kiss albums and my complete collection of original Star Trek shows on beta max. That Bill Shatner, what a talent. Drysdale will fit right in.

    @StevenToddIves Because I like asking the tough questions, am restless and need to occupy my brain with something other than the depressing events in the world. I know this is a tough exercise. Thank you in advance!!
