This was a really difficult choice between a number of guys but I went with Stewart in an attempt to stick with someone that I know and someone who is on the verge of the NHL. In short, I went with the safe pick.

I also considered:
Belle: good technical and physical abilities, already has NHL experience but I've seen very little of him
Wyman: another guy I've only seen a little of, but has some upside
Torp: sounds like a well rounded Dman
Trunev: the initial reports and upside of this guy make him worthy of 19th or 20th on this list, in true home run swing style IMO
Trotter: showed some flashes of good skill last year but still has a way to go yet

Paquet, Pateryn and Fortier were also considered but I know even less about those guys than some of the ones listed above.

I don't think I'd argue any players case strongly from here on out, except for Trunev being somewhere in the top 20 on upside alone
