Alright, seriously...how do you rank Roman Josi, who has a dynamic skill set and has shown himself as a steady NHL defenseman this season behind Jonathon Blum, who is a solid all-around guy going through a sophomore slump this season and has been buried in the minors since December?

While Blum is the safer pick, Josi has a much higher upside. Both are great prospects that should go on to have long NHL careers - if Blum can prove himself on his next recall and if Josi can stay healthy, but in the long run Blum's upside is likely as Dan Hamhuis, while Josi I would compare to Kimmo Timonen or obviously Mark Streit.
