    Schremp
    Picard

    I agree with Leafaholix

    Schremp and Radulov will be the best offensively from that list.

    Well, on which has the better upside, Schremp and Radulov. But on who I think will have scored more points in the NHL in 3-4 years...
    I think Tukonen and Picard, because they are likely going to get a chance to play. Tukonen has been touted as very NHL ready, and I think Picard just because I have a feeling he'll play in the NHL sooner rather than later.
    Although I think Schremp and Radulov do have higher ceilings, I can't see either making the NHL until they get an opportunity to play in a scoring role, and I don't really see that for either in the next couple of years. Maybe a few years from now, but I doubt either puts up as many points in 1 year as Tukonen will get a chance to put up in 3.

    That's why one went 25th overall and the other is the most hyped player since Mario Lemieux, right?

    Seeing as how Edmonton has neither a #1 or #2 centre at the moment I heartily disagree.

    York is a very capable #2, and marginal #1, although I get your point. He's more suitable playing the wing.

    Ladd and Olesz IMO are the safest of picks.

    Schremp should be the best offensive talent but you can't ignore Radulov who looks alot like a poor mans Nik Zherdev.

    Lauri Tukonen is a big kid whose skill is still coming along and could really be a player down the road as well.

    The players you listed are some of my favs in the draft, I think 2004 was an underated draft because there were quite a few scorers with holes in there game, it should be interesting to see how they all devolope.

    I agree Schremp will get every opportunity to take a top line job in Edm. I like a player that is confident. Reminds me of the good old days.

    I agree. I think Schremp and Radulov because they were two of the better offensive talents in the draft, and they are drafted by teams who lack depth at their positions. These guys will get a shot to play sooner than most think.
