    The question is very simple! Who gonna be the best players?

    Because in my draft a have the choice between backstrom and Toews and I decide to take Toews!

    But im not sure if i made the right decision, what you think about my pick?

    Backstrom is simply the best forward in the draft. You should have taken Him!!

    I agree.

    I just wish he'd be there when Boston picks 5th, but I highly doubt it. :(

    I'd take Toews. The kid is just everything you want in a hockey player. he can skate, he has a nice heavy shot, A future captain, and an incredibly hard worker.

    Nothing against Backstrom who is an excellent hockey player, but if I had to make the choice, I am running to the podium to take Toews

    Then again, I think it depends on the team and needs.

    If I was Washington with the choice, and really need a playmaking Center, I draft Backstrom.

    If I was Pittsburgh and have a playmaking center in tow, I want the guy who is going to do all the dirty work. Someone who can switch to wing and grind, and Toews is a no brainer in my opinion for that pick

    For my money it's Toews.

    I don't expect the Caps would draft Backstrom unless Toews is off the board. Given the choice, I think they take Toews.

    I think there is a good chance Backstrom will be there at #5 when Boston picks. Staal is going to go higher than initially suggested, bumping these guys.

    I'd say Backstrom is going to be the better of the two offensively, Towes will have the better two-way game. Which of those your team needs more is what they will go with.

    Backstrom because he's already playing great in a men's league and the fact that they're comparing him to Peter Forsberg sounds too good not to draft him. He'd be the perfect fit for Ovechkin.

    Toews and Backstrom both are good. I;d take anyone of the two on my team anyday.

    Backstrom is being compared to Forsberg for no reasons other than he's Swedish and good. Backstrom is not Peter Forsberg. He's a whole lot closer to Henrik Zetterberg, but a little grittier. Toews is the better player overall.

    Best right now, not the best potential. Kessel, Toews are in front in terms of potential I think.

    Backstrom I guess but Pittsburgh needs a winger so Toews ou Kessel culd be their choice instead of Backstrom or Staal.
