    Not super informed on most of them but Barrie should definitely be at the top. Marincin should be top half. From what I (think I) know, Faulk and Forbort should be closer to the bottom.

    Yeah, I think I feel about the same. Barrie, gap, Falk, gap, then the rest IMO.

    I dont know enough about most of them to make a list but I suggest you guys watch a highlight video of J schultz if you havnt seen him play.

    If the Ducks give him 2 or 3 years to learn how to play defense at the pro level with his size the guy can be lights out.

    I admittedly haven't watched these players much, but what sets Barrie apart? I know he had good junior stats, but he didn't seem to be that great in the WJC. Obviously that is a very small sample size.

    The thing that sets Barrie apart IMO is his overall game. Offensively speaking, Schultz, Faulk and Marincin are on par with Barrie..... but he is so competitive and solid all-around that he is more of a can't miss player, which equals more minutes played, which equals more time to shine.
