    Three extremely talented forwards who are eligible for the 2005 draft. They're a bit clustered in terms of were they well land in the 2005 draft.

    In your opinion how would you rank these three players in Terms of NHL potential.

    Pure Pure Potential I would rank like this

    Ryan
    Pouliot
    O'marra

    In terms of how they will pan out, I think it'd be something like this

    O'Marra (because of his maturity and his focus)
    Pouliot (because he's just busting out and we don't know where his horizon might end)
    Ryan (because he is O'Sullivan'sblack sheep little brother)

    Ryan is a solid, safe pick who will probably turn out into a top two lines power forward. Pouliot, although high risk, is a fast scoring winger that many teams need. O'Marra I don't think is quite as good as Pouliot or Ryan but is still a top 20 pick.

    NHL Potential-

    1. Benoit- tough, high scoring winger.
    2. Ryan- safe pick, will play in the top two lines
    3. O'Mara- I'm sorry guys but in my opinion he shouldnt be in the top ten.

    To defend O'Marra, he is playing on a poor Erie team. He is their offense. He also has good size. He also stepped it up last year in the playoffs as a 16 year old averaging more then a PPG. These are the types of things I would look for in a prospect. Pouliot is also a half a year older then O'Marra.

    Oh He's Good alright...he definitely is! and he deserves to go high but not too high.
    I think he is a top 15 pick, just not a top 10. but then again, thats just me.

    While I do agree that O'Marra plays on their team, he isn't exactly "their offence". Geoff Platt is not only a very good offensive player who has almost as many goals as O'Marra does points, but up until last week, Rob Hisey, a guy who had 90-something points last year, was also on the team and producing.
