    I think Cam Barker and Wojtec Wolaj(er something like that) are the best d-men in the draft- Go to www.nhl.com and then click on the side-entry draft

    Wojtek Wolski is a foward prospect from the OHL. He's expected to go in the top 10 of the draft, but he's a forward. Here is my top 5 at defense.


    1. Cam Barker
    2. Wes O'Neil
    3. A.J. Thelen
    4. Mike Green
    5. Ladislav Smid


    Cam Barker is the clear cut #1 defenseman in this draft and after him you'll see it get pretty cloudy as to who is better. Everybody has their own opinion, but I like Wes O'Neil more than the fast riser in A.J. Thelen. Ladislav Smid is a wildcard to go before Mike Green, but Green will probably go before him. Smid appears to be a mid-late first round pick. Barker will go top 5, O'Neil and Thelen will go top 10, and Green and Smid will go in the 20's is how I see this draft shaping up.
