    Who is better? More potential? Safer?

    I would take O'Marra right now, he is the safer pick but Skille has more potential and could end up being the better of the 2.

    what he says.

    O'Marra seems like a sure 2nd liner but Skille, down the road can be a first liner. O'Marra is probably the second most ready-prospect after Crosby.

    BuppY has it right. O'Marra is widely considered the safest pick in the draft, but Skille is a more dynamic player and has higher upside.

    I wish the Hawks were in a better position so they wouldnt have to make this choice. I think we really need to get a forward this year that has strong 1st line potential. We have a ton of 2nd/3rd line guys on the team and in the system, but no one with 1st line potential other than Ruutu and Bell.

    I think Hawks will take O'marra in the upcoming draft.

    If that's the case then they're probably better off taking Skille. Though O'Marra would make a fine #2 centre behind Ruutu.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Hawsk took Zagrapan to tell the truth.

    O'Marra is definately a 'safer' pick among the two and is fairly close to being an NHL ready player. Skille has more potential but more work to do and will take longer to develop.
