    I really like both, but I think Brown is going to be the better offensive player. I would take Brown over Vermette

    Not really comparable guys if you ask me due to diferent stages of their careers.

    As much as I like Vermette I would take Brown.

    Wow I mean Antoine Vermette is a skilled centreman...and I mean he is a good young player with some decent upside...but I mean Dustin Brown was one of the Top Power Forwards taken in a very deep draft...Really, Horton, Brown, Stewart, Bernier.....were the main winger powerforwards available, (Guys like Jeff Carter being a centreman), but I mean Brown is a pretty highly touted prospect, and while being highly touted means nothing in and of itself...>Brown is most certainly a player with more elite potential as far as I am concerned then Vermette....

    I've always liked Vermette, and was hoping by now he would have developed into a Gagne like player(i still have hope though).

    Brown though is a much better player. I've seen him play several times and he is going to be a damn good player.

    Dustin Brown hands down, boy have the Kings gotten two gems in the last two drafts in Brown and Tukonen.

    You forgot unskilled. Being a grinder doesn't necessarily connotate that. :)

    Brown.

    Vermette has been used so far in a strictly defensive and penalty-killing role. He should get an audition on a scoring line this season and we'll see if he has a shot to go with those wheels.
