Going with O'Dell again here.

I'm not sold on Machecek and as Le Golie touched on between him and Maxwell, I personally like Maxwell better. But, I can't vote for Machecek here because I personally think he'll be a career AHL'er or fringe checking line guy at the NHL level, where as O'Dell in my opinion carries pretty strong top 6-9 scoring potential, though he isn't proven at the AHL level yet, so I can see why Machecek would get votes here.

It's a big year for O'Dell, I think. If he can have a solid year in the AHL, I think his stock rises a lot. If he is healthy, and by all indications he is, he should be a good one, I think. Still can't believe he was 9 picks shy of being a 1st round pick by Anaheim in 2008 after playing just 26 OHL games. That is so impressive to me, and says a lot about the player.
