    Which of these two young D-men has the most potetial, and which one would you want on your team. My choice would be Matt Carle but only because i've seen him more than Jack Johnson.

    Who the ****'s Matt Carle? :sarcasm:

    Just kidding, Johnson by a huge margin. I'm still a little puzzled that Burke selected Ryan over JJ, I think it will make him a laughing stock at one point - although Ryan's pretty good.

    I've seen a TON of both...

    the difference btwn both isn't as large as you may think...

    we'll see as their career play out.

    Carle is special, he's not talked about a ton at HF..but ya'll we'll see.

    I'd take Jack, but not by much, not by much at all.

    Carle was as good as a Freshman and better in International play at the same age.

    if you aren't selected in the 1st round, you can't be a good prospect to many on this board...

    matt carle is freaking great, was a better college player then ryan suter i can tell u that much. I'm not even a Denver fan at all, but give respect where it's due. Matt Carle is amazing.

    I agree. Today, I take Matt Carle. He plays much smarter. In three years, I take Jack Johnson. His skills are unreal.

    The only time I've seen Johnson is at the WJC, and his shot and toughness impressed me. However, I've seen Carle in the NHL (one game, but still), and he has the potential to be a top defenseman and PP QB. That said, Carle's footspeed doesn't impress me.

    Johnson had 32 points as a freshman playing on a less gifted team than Carle did.

    agreed, but then had much more ice time to accumulate those points. Johnson is a stud, but it's not a clear choice whatsoever

    I think that it lies in the middle here: it's not as far apart as some posters are stating, but anyone who says it's real close has to either be a Sharks fan, a Pioneers fan, or a Johnson hater.

    The Sharks have made wonderful selections that were off the board, but Carle simply doesn't have the same package that Johnson has.

    EDIT - Okay kids, you all know what I meant by "package" so lets keep our minds out of the gutter. ;)

    Carle does not get enough attention 'cause he is a Sharks prospect and no one really cares, IMO

    Johnson has more raw potential than Carle; Johnson is an elite defensive prospect like Dion Phaneuf, but the difference between Carle and Johnson isn't nearly as large as some of you are making it. Carle's potenial is only half a rung below Johnson's. Probably, Carle will mature faster than Johnson, but Johnson will eventually end up the better player.

    Carle should score more, Johnson will hit people much harder. Should be close. Carle was among the nations leaders in points playing on the blue line. Carle is also much more reliable. JJ gets wild at times. He is young and most likely will be corrected. But it is not a super clear choice to the point where you are dumb for not choosing JJ. I would take JJ as if he pans out all the way. He will dominate at both ends of the ice. Carle will, if he pans out, be solid at both ends but i do not see dominating both ends.

    Good point, but Johnson did have much more hype surrounding him prior to the draft.
     
  25. I'd take Johnson every day of the week and twice on game days.
