    Weber's offense is nearly as good as his defense. "Complete" comes to mind.

    Barker and Carle are still rookies.

    My picks are Ballard, Meszaros and Weber, although Seabrook would be a close 4th.

    Weber's offensive game is very underratted, He has a great low shot that should score him 15+ goals in the future. Look at how he performed when he got PP time with The Preds, When Zidlicky Was out of the lineup... he was on fire. So He should easily make all of your top 3's, Becuase i mean his physical defensive game is very good.

    Weber
    Seabrook
    Meszaros

    I second that. Weber is something special. He showed a lot down the stretch and in the playoffs.

    Not so much. He will not fight or throw his body around like Ballard.

    He's better defensively, though. Which is not to say that Ballard isn't good defensively.

    Weber took a few stupid penalties in the playoffs. Needs to learn not to be so rough at times.

    Seabrook
    Meszaros
    Carle/Ballard

    I dont get to see the others a whole lot, but only 2 guys strike me as potential captains and complete players. Phaneuf and Ballard. Those two will be with their respective clubs for a long time to come.

    Beautiful. Keep in mind hes 5'11 208 according to the NHL and he throws hipchecks on guys like Bertuzzi and Boogard.
