    Looking at the last two draft years, there were 11 slots which had guys at the same position (F, D, G). It's probably not fair to compare a center to a winger, but these are the dog days of summer and it increases the discussion.

    Simple question - Who will have the better career? 2005 guys are listed first.

    2. Bobby Ryan vs. Jordan Staal
    4. Benoit Pouliot vs. Nicklas Backstrom
    6. Gilbert Brule vs. Derrick Brassard
    7. Jack Skille vs. Kyle Okposo
    8. Devin Setoguchi vs. Peter Mueller
    13. Marek Zagrapan vs. Jiri Tlusty
    17. Martin Hanzal vs. Trevor Lewis
    19. Jakub Kindl vs. Mark Mitera
    25. Andrew Cogliano vs. Patrick Berglund
    27. Joe Finley vs. Ivan Vishnevsky
    30. Vladimir Mihalik vs. Matthew Corrente

    My Opinion?

    2. Stall (can't deny the bloodlines, although I like Ryan alot too)
    4. Backstrom (very complete player, already pro-ready)
    5. Brule (though it depends how injuries take their toll on him)
    7.Skille ( I like his speed and skill)
    8. Mueller ( I like the size, playmaking ability)
    13. Zagrapan ( HUGE offensive upside)
    17. Lewis ( more safe than the risky Hanzal)
    19. Kindl (I've seen him play alot... he's gonna be a top pairing d-man)
    25. Coglinano ( he'll thrive in the new NHL)
    27. Vishnevsky ( I barely know Joe Finley so.....)
    30. Correnete ( again, Mihkalic may be TOO big for the new NHL)

    apples to oranges comparing a goalie to a forward, or a D-man...
    was strictly comparing D-men to D-men, and forwards to forwards (there were no goalies chosen in the same position)...

    most people are going to go with Crosby over EJ, but if EJ becomes the 4th greatest D-man ever and Crosby becomes the 10th best forward ever (purely hypothetical)....it's much more difficult to compare, and people would probably still assume Crosby had a greater career b/c of the massive amount of points that he would have....

    2. Bobby Ryan vs. Jordan Staal
    4. Benoit Pouliot vs. Nicklas Backstrom - Fairly easy decision at this point
    6. Gilbert Brule vs. Derrick Brassard
    7. Jack Skille vs. Kyle Okposo - Not a big Skille fan
    8. Devin Setoguchi vs. Peter Mueller - I tink this one is very close
    13. Marek Zagrapan vs. Jiri Tlusty - Maybe a homer pick
    17. Martin Hanzal vs. Trevor Lewis
    19. Jakub Kindl vs. Mark Mitera
    25. Andrew Cogliano vs. Patrick Berglund
    27. Joe Finley vs. Ivan Vishnevsky
    30. Vladimir Mihalik vs. Matthew Corrente - I don't really know much about either of these guys

    Would a Crosby vs Johnson comparison be useful? I think not
