    Thats why I said " A top 10 or top 20, or a little info on one of the lessor prospects."

    Thanks a lot!! Very interest in the bottow 4 who I dont know that much about. I scanned your list and realized you left out Gudbranson, but then realized I left him off my list as well (so I edited him in). Its a pretty scary Prospect pool to pick up, that being said the current roster is Mush. :laugh:

    those are the only ones i know enough about to have much of an opinion on, but i'd say they're all keepers.

    Gudbranson would fit into the #3 spot on my rankings.

    Anders Nilsson is a stud goalie prospect. He has the potential to be a starter... problem is, the islanders have to much goalies, so i don't think how good will he be for sim purposes...
     
  12. Never heard of Max Reinhart?

    I'll help you out on these that are Minnesota property and Alt who I've seen a good bit of...

    Nick Seeler -- Late round pick of the Wild this past year. He's a "toolsy" defenseman prospect from one of the best hockey high schools in Minnesota the last few years. Seeler will be playing in the USHL this season and then will head to Nebraska-Omaha to play under one of the best coaches in hockey, Dean Blais. He's a long ways out from ever seeing the pro game, but Seeler does have a good bit of upside with his skating and offensive tools. Held his own at Wild Dev Camp and flashed some skill against a very good group that the Wild had in.

    Stephen Michalek -- Another late round pick of the Wild this season, in a similar mold to Seeler. He's a high school kid with great athleticism at the goaltender position. Michalek is extremely raw at this point and is heading to Harvard this season. Again, like Seeler, he's a long ways off of the pro game. Played for a terrible high school team and was shelled with nearly an average of 50 shots per game. Seen some time at the US Dev camp this week after an injury to another goaltender. Looked okay at Wild Dev camp, should his athleticism but also his inconsistencies.

    Johan Larsson -- Also Wild property drafted in the second round in 2010, played in the Swedish Elite League this past season and held his own at his young age. Fairly often finds the score sheet in national games against competition of his peers, but didn't exactly do the same against men in the SEL but that's expected. He's a two-way guy with great leadership characteristics. He should be in North America in 2012. Probably starts out in Houston, though. Doubtful he ever becomes a scoring threat. Upside is a responsible two-way center, more likely a 3rd line center.

    Mark Alt -- Another "toolsy" Minnesota high school defender. Good frame to build off of. Not a U of Minnesota fan, but he was by far my favorite defenseman on that team last season. He's a responsible defender that can move the puck. Not sure he's got #1-2 defender potential but I think he'll easily settle in on the second pairing. Won't light up the score sheet from the point, but should probably put up respectable numbers for a second pairing guy when all is said and done. Good two-way player.
