The goalie lovers have won.

'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.

A goalie made it! French-Canadian netminder Philippe Desrosiers is our number 12 prospect. We'll keep this going until we get to number 20 unless things die out completely.

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%)

9./10. Remi Elie / Radek Faksa (35%, tied run off)

11. Devin Shore (30%, run off loser)
12. Philippe Desrosiers (31%)
