Ladd is not going to be there at 10-15, I HIGHLY doubt it. Especially if he has a strong playoffs.

The guy showed more over the past two months of the season than any other WHL prospect and his stock is heavily on the rise. I'll be surprised if he slips out of the top 5, shocked if he slips out of the top 10 and dang near floored if he is on the board at 15.

Barker is good, with a high upside but also has a lot of things that make me nervous.

He's an attractive package because he is a big, young defenseman who can score and hit, but there's more to a car than the paintjob. Sometimes it's nice to know what's under the hood. I'd love to get Barker, but Ladd is a player this team is going to need to go into battle.
