    Brad Stuart , Jay Bouwmeester And Eric Brewer

    Brad Stuart - Stands at 6'2 215lbs, who was drafted 3rd overall in the 98' NHL entry draft he has a great shot and will be a power Quarter back for the San Jose Sharks, but hasnt made much noise in the Show.

    Jay Bouwmeester - A tall 6'4 defenseman weighing in at 210lbs, also drafted 3rd overall in the 2002 Entry Draft. One of a handful of players to play on the Canadian WJC team at 16. Very Smooth and fast skater with good hockey, also hasnt made much noise in the 2 years he's been in the show, but is the youngest of this group

    Eric Brewer - 6'3 220lbs was drafted 5th overall in the 97' NHl entry draft. He doesnt shy away from hits and has one laser of a shot. The only Dman out of the 3 to play in the Olympics for team Canada. Eric has been in the league 6 years and has had some descent season, but nothing that will take him to the All Star game.


    So with all this in mind, my question is Who out of these dmen have the best potential to become one of the leagues best dmen. What do you predict for them, point production wise and who is the most valuable to have at this time?

    thanks for the responses

    Jay Bouwmeester for sure...

    Stuart is good, but not in the ballpark area of JBo...and Brewer is solid but overrated, and this is coming from an Oilers fan.

    Brewer has been fairly solid this year.. while his offensive game hasn't come around like many have predicted it would, he plays a solid 25 mins/night for a fairly weak Edmonton team.

    Sympethy because the Oilers needed a d-man.

    Also, we all know he only made Team Canada at Salt Lake because of Lowe's lobbying ;).

    I don't think any thread discussing future stars on defense can be had without including Dion Phaneuf. He'll be easily better than Stuart and Brewer and will be better than Bouwmeester in certain facets of the game (i.e. physical play and defensive acumen).

    Calgary got away with murder when they got Neufy who IMO should have been selected over both Suter and Coburn easily.

    WRT to this topic, I'd go Bouwmeester, Stu, then Brewer. At this point, it doesn't seem that Brewer will be anything more than a 3 or 4 guy with the ability to eat up minutes. Stuart has some incredile offensive potential and can lay out some quality hits, but Bouwmeester (that JayBo thing really irritates me) has it all.

    As for Neufy, I'd rather have him out of all of them. It all comes down to who you would rather have I guess: Scott Niedermayer or Scott Stevens? I'll take Stevens. . .

    That was perhaps one of the most ridiculous manifestations of it I have ever read.

    Like why just list Bouwmeester, Stuart and Brewer...

    I think most people will have Bouwmeester number one out of those three...

    How about....pick out of

    Bouwmeester
    Pitkanen
    Klesla
    Hamhuis
    Grebshkov
    Kronwall
    Barker
    Phaneuf
    Suter
    Coburn
    Leopold
    Whitney


    Top 5 out of that group lets say, all around offense and Norris

    I don't really like the nickname JayBo either, but it is better than Neufy!
