DefendingBigD Community Prospect Rankings #9

New, comments

We get it Swedes.

Charles LeClaire-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.

Ok Sweden. You win. Mattias Backman is the number 8 prospect in the system.

Number nine is on tap. Who gets to join our illustrious list?

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%)

8. Mattias Backman (32%)

Also please, if there is anyone you want to see added to the list for voting just mention them in the comments or else we'll probably end up stopping exactly at 15.
