You should know that a D-Man takes at least a couple of years to develop. Don't expect McDonagh to be a regular before MAYBE late in 2009-2010 or 2010-2011.

As for a couple of years ago, I wanted the Habs to draft Bobby Sanguinetti. This kid is exactly what we lack in our system : a good two-way D-Man able to play both defensively and offensively and putting up great numbers offesensively.

As for my ranking :

1. McDonagh
2. Emelin
3. Subban
4. Weber
5. Fischer
6. O'Byrne
7. Valentenko
8. Carle

As for the others, I do no know them so much... I ranked them in order of potential, and even though I was not sold on this Subban kid, I was impressed by his talent in the Memorial Cup tournament. This kid is gonna make it to the NHL, no doubt, he seems like a great mix between Streit and Schubert. Great offensive abilities, lot of speed, a HARD, but HARD shot, but he also can be physical and gritty at times.
