    Who would you select at these rank? I need the best player available. In fact the needs are for a D-Men but, I think this draft is for the forward. So? Any info would be considered. Thanx

    O’Marra and Bergfors would both make great selections, both can finish and are very smart players. Bergfors has better pure skill, but O’Marra is a prototypical pro forward and is a much safer bet. There are two defenseman IMO who are worth the 12th overall selection. Marc Staal has a good all around game and has special skating, defensive positioning and size, could develop into a top 2 defenseman, also Luc Bourdon was the best defenseman at the U-18 and he brings size, skating, a hard point shot, good puck movement and has an edge.

    Bourdon has alot more offensive upside than what people think...right now he is concentrating on his defensive game...but before the QMJHL and in various tournaments last year he was one of the main offensive weapons from the blueline.
