  1. Initial thoughts are that the following should be considered their team’s top prospect: Chris Kreider, Beau Bennett, and Tyler Toffoli. I would put Granlund ahead of Dumba as well. Brandon Pirri on the hawks seems poised to do some damage. Finally, I’d put Lindholm ahead of Etem. Otherwise, overall solid rankings RK, esq
