As per usual the vote is up to you. Some see it as most likely to play, some see it as highest ceiling, others see it as a mix of both.

Happy voting!

After giving it some thought ended up going with Pribyl. Big, skilled. Had some injury problems last year. He's very experienced in pro hockey and could be a real dark horse to see some NHL time as an injury fill in later this season.

Pribyl. A bit older but I think he could be a better NHLer than, for instance, Joe Colborne. At the AHL level he was nearly impossible to take the puck away from and he made some real power drives to the net. When healthy.

Also love Tuulola. Seems to be much better than his stats, maybe he's the type who needs to play with talent for his skillset to shine.

Went with Pribyl. Almost went Tuulola but I'll save him for next round.

Haha...no, that's a reach. Currently a 8 point percentage gap between the top two on the list.

I see that Tuulola has now become the new David Jones for ol' Scorpy. I can't wait until the next bet you make surrounding Tuulola that results in a new version of the dickbutt avatar.

The 4th round I've voted for Linus - have a gut feeling he'll turn out.

So, assuming Pribyl has won this, you could ice our top 20 prospects like this (based on the poll rankings) and they nearly make a well balanced team:

Mangiapane Jankowski Foo
Poirier Dube Phillips
Shinkaruk Klimchuk Hathaway
Pribyl

Valimaki Andersson
Kylington Fox
Kulak Wotherspoon
AOM

Parsons
Gillies
Rittich

Of note:

Goalies and Defense are really healthy. With all the hype surrounding Parsons it's hard to not get carried away with excitement. Gillies will surely get the first opportunity to prove himself with the big club though.

RW depth looks a bit better with Foo added to the roster, Pribyl (hopefully) healthy and Poirier back in the frame. Phillips is exciting but there will be many skeptics because of his size could we really have another pint-sized offensive dynamo on our hands? Hathaway plays a fun style but will be competing directly with Lazar for a spot this year, and the organisation has invested a lot in the former Ottawa 1st rounder bad luck for Garnet as it's difficult to imagine what more the guy can do to earn a spot.

We've never seemed to have any trouble with LW depth.

My main worry: we're starting to get a bit low on top-shelf centremen in the pipeline. After Janko and Dube it's slim pickings, and Klimchuk had to make due in my lineup even though he's rarely played C since his draft year. Though it may not seem a problem immediately, with Monahan/Backlund/Bennett/Lazar all young and performing well under contract, we've seen what happens when there aren't enough blue chip Cs coming through the ranks.

Overall though we're looking in great shape, especially factoring in the ages of core players like Tkachuk, Bennett, Monahan, Hamilton, Brodie and Gaudreau.
