    Who'll eventually develop into a better player?
    Are there any chance any of them will develop into something better than simple third liners?

    Scottie has more potential by a long shot.

    (I really don't know, I'm just being biased like everyone else)

    Well, ive seen little of both, that's why I asked you guys. Though, in his 41 games with the Caps, didnt Gordon kinda proved a little bit more than Upshall?

    Two different answers. If you are looking for the most upside scoring wise I say Upshall. If you are looking for the most complete player I say Gordon.

    Upshall even though Gordon is really coming into his own in Portland

    Gordon is one of those guys who will do all the little things right but never standout...I still dont agree with McPhee taking him 17th overall

    Having absolutely no bias towards either player, Upshall easily. Man did Boyd Gordon ever get picked too high in his draft.

    I agree on Upshall easily being a better prospect than Gordon, but to so emphatically diss where Gordon was picked is too harsh. He was a safe pick. Yes, there were players with greater potential picked after him, but Mcphee had two big time potential picks before Gordon and I think he wanted to pick a player who had a good chance of making the NHL one day.

    Gordon is going to be a better pro than most are thinking.

    Upshall is hurt again. Right now, I'd be afraid to label him anything.

    Yeah, everyone is so quick to say Upshall, but at this rate, will he ever make the NHL? If he's too fragile for the AHL pounding, he's going to have a lot of trouble playing for the Preds, a team who delivers and receives lots of hits. I don't want to sound like a pessimist, but he missed 30+ games last regular season with an injury and over a dozen playoff games. This year, only a little over a third of the way into the season, he's already missed 8 games (and will undoubtedly miss more).
