    Who would it be? The Yotes have good depth a D but weak everywhere else. Who would you take, we need offence..

    Assuming Toews, Kessel, Staal and Backstrom are gone I would go with Brassard/Mueller/Little/Okposo/Tlusty/Sheppard/Frolik in that order.

    Of those, I'd put it in the order of:

    Mueller
    Brassard
    Little
    Tlusty
    Sheppard
    Okposo
    Frolik

    I like Little, he will be huge in the new NHL but Brassard is interesting too..

    Depending if they wanted to gamble or not Frolik could be pretty high on the list aswell but I think they would be better off going with a more sure fire pick like one of the four I listed.

    I second this list, but Frolik is a no. Too risky a pick while good players are still on the board.

    If I were Gretzky, I'd be thrilled with Brian Little.

    i'd take brian little (if he's still there). i have seen him play quite a few times and he drops my jaw.i really feel he could end up being a guy who should have gone in the top 5 possibly even 1st overall.this kid reminds me of a young joe sakic.not saying he will live up to that but i think he has the potential.

    He has some attributes like Joe but he is a more of a goal scorer Doug Gilmour.

    at #8, imo you simply rank your top 8 guys and pick highest ranking guy remaining (and cross your fingers that someone 1-7 picks someone outside your top 8 to give you a guy higher on your list)

    I'd be surprised if Mueller falls past the 6th pick to Columbus, and he's definately not falling past the #7 IMO. The Isles are supposedly in love with him.

    If the Jackets/Isles take Mueller and Brassard in some combination I would expect the Coyotes to take Bryan Little. If either the Isles or Blue Jackets go way off the board I'd expect them to take whichever of Brassard/Mueller that is still remaining.

    If they somehow get a choice between them I'd expect them to take Mueller.

    Frolik is way too risky at number 8. I could see him drop to 15 if the teams are nervous about him.

    Frolik or Little, but mueller could be a good pick too. Brassard Backstrom Kessel Johnson Toews and Staal will be gone for sure.
