    i agree. but schneider over rask? i think the closest duo's are edler vs. stralman and raymond vs. rau.

    edler is a really good whl player, and stralman was apparently the top defenceman on his swedish elite league team, timra. both 1986 players. stralman may play for sweden at the world championships this spring.

    raymond and rau were both freshmen in the wcha, rau had 30 points in 42 games, raymond had 28 in 40. good comparison.

    I am suprised at the White over Bieska decisions. Last year AHL stats for both:

    Bieska
    AHL 80 12 27 39

    White
    AHL 78 4 22 26

    White is also suppose to be the better offensive d-man. Bieksa is far grittier, is a huge hitter, and plays sold D. I would pick Bieska for sure, however it would probably be better to compare Bieska to Coliacovo, and Koltsov to White.

    not sure how ellis is better than pogge. he's been as good, if not better in his league and he beat him out at the team canada camp, it wasn't even close.

    It seems to me you've already made up your mind as to who should be picked in your list... Then why post it in the first place? Besides, shouldn't this go on the Leafs board?

    First off, I think Ian White's stock has become more than a tad inflated because he's played incredibly well for the Leafs, but it has been a mere 4 games.

    Second, there is a three year age difference between Bieska and White.

    In 2004-2005, Bieska had 39 pts in 80 games as 23 year old in the AHL.

    In 2005-2006, Ian White had 37 points in 59 games as a 21 year old in the AHL.

    Bieska is grittier and hits more often and with more ferocity but I think White's top end potential could see him being level with Bieska defensively and a notch ahead offensively.
