I'm not sure if Gregoire has the same upside that Zaj has. Also, I'll admit I don't know a tonne about Gregoire, but I know very few guys who work as hard in the off season as Zaj.

But I picked Gregoire for the #4 spot; as much as I like Postma, and I do like Postma, I don't see him being more than a #4 guy (Jan Hejda type) . Gregoire could be a very solid #2 center (Shawn Horcoff/Matt Cullen kind of guy).
Zajac's point totals don't look that impressive some years and that's cause he always plays with that defense first mentality which is what Gregoires UND coach said about him. After seeing him play this year, I have to admit that he will challenge for a roster spot, if not, one year in the AHL won't hurt.
