DefendingBigD Community Prospect Rankings #8

Patrik Nemeth wins. Mattias Backman's unprecedented surge is thwarted.

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

We're going to blatantly rip off LoneStarBall. Every year for what seems like forever they vote on the top prospects in the Texas Rangers system. I don't recall us ever doing it for the Dallas Stars. This seems like as good of a time as any.

What we will do is throw up a poll for each ranking. Vote on whichever prospect you think belongs in the spot in question. Feel free to use whatever criteria you want to use to determine the top prospect. The prospect with the highest percentage of votes at each turn will take the spot. If we get two or more prospects within five percentage points or so we'll do a run off.

Any player in the Stars system with less than 60 NHL games is eligible.

The number seven prospect in the Dallas Stars system as chosen by you is Patrik Nemeth. He beat out a team of angry Swedes who apparently repeatedly voted for Backman at will in a campaign of evil intended to derail the democratic system we have established here. With a two vote edge, we'll give the nod to Nemeth.

Do your worst at number eight, whoever you dedicated Backman fans are.

1. Julius Honka (~40%)

2. Esa Lindell (19%)

3. Denis Gurianov (25%)

4. Jason Dickinson (35%)

5. Stephen Johns (Runoff winner, barely)

6. Brett Ritchie (Runoff loser, barely)

7. Patrik Nemeth (25%)
