    Forwards I would have him:

    Tkachuk
    Brown
    Batherson
    Formenton
    Chlapik
    Balcers/Norris
    White

    Then

    JBD
    Tychonik
    Wolanin
    Lajoie

    Ahead of him.

    So I see him in a tier around 9-12 with White/Norris/Balcers/Jaros, without ranking Gus at all.

    Brown ranks second and still can't make the team for the 3rd straight year?

    Balcers #13 atm, expecting him to be a top-5 guy is a stretch. Hopefully, he can play himself to top 10 at least.

    What the hell is this. Kid is in his first year of pro hockey. not making an NHL team at 18, 19 or even 20 isn't anything to hold against him.

    Chlapick was better at camp and is more well rounded.

    I like Balcers and think he’s between 5-6.
    Lajoie should be 2.

    According to Jonathan Willis at the athletic, right behind Chlapik and White, ahead of Jaros (looked at AHL players only)

    Yeah it makes this poll very hard to answer because Lajoie surprised everybody and look like he should be much higher in our ranking, but let's try to have a "summer mindset", where would we have ranked Balcers and Norris in our pool the day that the trade happened?

    Looking back, I should have made that poll in the following days of the trade, my fault for waiting.

    All that being said, I'd have Balcers at #10 and Norris at #11

    We will remake this series of polls this winter. I'm sure Lajoie and a few others will rocket, while White will go down a bit
