I would give Donovan a serious consideration. He's ready to step in next year unlike some of the other names I've seen that may take 2-3 years before seeing any NHL action. Donovan has the added element of toughness so he's extra valuable in leagues with PIM and Hits.
I can't promise I'll try but I'll try to try.
To me, Lindholm's skating and hockey IQ will really help him excel in the NHL. He's going to be one of those guys that will play huge minutes and chip in offensively, much like OEL. If I were to put Sproul on my list, I'd be taking Beaulieu off but that's hard to do.

(slang, idiomatic) 1. A person who habitually corrects or criticizes the language usage of others, especially in situations where it is unnecessary, e.g. an informal conversation.
Notes: This behavior is almost always found in people with very low I.Q's, whom have a very low sense of self worth. Impotence is also commonly linked to Grammar Nazi's.
1.Rielly - no one with higher upside under 25 GP imho.
2.Trouba - could just be a beast in muti cats.
3.Dumba - upside is so tempting but less likely then the above two.
4.Morrow - move to dallas gives him very little comp, and he is close to nhl ready.
5.Murray - tough blow with the injury but he should get every opp to suceed.
6.Sproul - really high on his upside, detroit back end depleted a bit.
7.Vatanen - ducks have room for him, and his upside is quite high, see kimmo timmonen for best comparison.
8.Beaulieu - top rated prospect in mtl's organization who hasn't made the team full time yet imo.
9.Pouliot - opp to play on pit back end for years to come, he may take 2 years before seeing nhl action but it will likely be worth the wait.
10.Lindholm - raw tools are off the charts from what i remember at the scouting combine. maybe an heir to beauchemin's role? (two way presence)
HM: Koekkoek, Ceci, Murphy, Reinhart, Donovan, Gormley
most of the guys on the HM list didn't make it because of steeper competition on their teams, or decreasing stock in the case of murphy.

Since Angus is making the list, assume Kevin Connauton and Frankie Corrado will be on it.
Just kidding.... Or am I?

Then again, Connauton went to your second favorite team
Has Jon Merrill fallen that far out? He has 8 points in 12 games as a first year pro. And if he makes the team next year, isnt he one of their top offensive dman before the season even starts?
Whats the word on Gormley? Is he just stuck in a deep depth chart in Phx? Or is he rounding into more of a 2-way dman?
