    I don't see any Kapanen in Legare. Kapanen has blazing speed which almost assured that he could at least be a good bottom 6 type guy with the upside to be a good top 6 in the mold of Zucker and Rust.

    I think Legare isore of a boom or bust type prospect. Legare has a great shot but I worry about his skating. I think he is the type of player that either makes it as a top 6 goal scoring winger or is a bust. I hope you are right about Legare but he seems boom or bust to me.

    POJ seems pretty safe to me and looks like at least a Pettersson. I feel pretty good about POJ being a 2nd pairing defenseman some day and his floor is a 3rd pairing defenseman. I see very little chance of him being a bust. Maybe all be proven wrong but that's how I see it. I think Poulin and POJ as pretty much sure NHL players.

    POJ and Pettersson is a decent comparison, although I do think POJ is the better skater.

    I wouldn't compare Maniscalco with Dumo, but he does remind me of Jeff Petry. I'll need to see more of him though.

    I'm surprised Legare has this many votes. He's the definition of a boom or bust prospect.

    Hallander and Addison turned into Zucker and Kap. Im fine with that. I dont like giving up the first for Kap tho but we also didnt know it would be this bad for sellers. And dont know if there were other teams with offers on the table for him..

    Zucker we know will help us these next few years. Hopefully Kapanen can take his game to another level, only being 24. At worst we get what he was with the Leafs. Which will also help our team.

    I look at it as if not for drafting well in the 2nd and 3rd rounds then we dont even get prospects like Hallander/Addison to move in trades that help us now. And getting Marino for a 6th really helped make up for lack of top prospects. Maybe Maniscalco and OConnor can as well, two more free pickups.

    yea i feel like our most underrated prospect is definitely Puustinen, i actually think he’s going to explode into a blue chipper in the next 1-2 years. very skilled.

    I'd be okay with not waiting til the 18th to call the poll. Anyone else?

    Except GM’s were told of the lowered cap hit months before dumbo made the trade.

    It was clear cut at number 1, but is a crap shoot at this point.

    I'll close it every 2 days if it's a blowout like this one is.

    I'll make #3 tomorrow morning

    I blame you if he doesn't make the big club within 3 years now. Don't toy with my emotions

    I don't think our top-5 is that bad. Clearly towards the bottom of the prospect ranks but...

    Poulin- legit NHL prospect
    P.O. - safe, top-4 D-man. Questionable upside
    O'Connor - late bloomer that has promise
    Legare - tools are there
    Blomqvist - cool, calm, skinny. Remind anyone of a certain somebody?

    Maniscalco/Puustinen - high risk/high reward players you'd want in your system.

    Aw s***...Is he mentally fragile? Can he at least provide 1.5 years of magic before the collapse? I'll take that if so...:sarcasm:

    Ya, totally unreasonable to think that the 20 y/o rookie who put up the same PPG as Dumoulin in his first year in WBS would have....Brian Dumoulin potential....

    Well what do you guys think now? POJ seems to have quite a nice upside from what I can tell, and a decent floor. LOVE his skating!
