The Peterborough Petes selected forward Zack Kassian from Windsor with the fourth overall pick and the Brampton Battalion rounded out the top five when they selected forward Matthew Duchene from the Central Ontario Wolves."

I like Duchene more than the other guys and I don't doubt he'd be the top pick if there was a do-over, not that the other guys are bad. My way: Duchene, Hall, O'Reilly, Kassian and Cizikas, probably.
I might be wrong, I'm not a huge O follower, but Duschene had commited to Michigan State (verbally) way back in 2006. I'm thinking he may have been drafted lower because of this situation, much like Esposito did in the Q, although Esposito had not commited to anything.
