Having said that I voted for Vatanen. A right-handed D-man who can skate like him and put up numbers like he has are rare.
I also feel that Etem could end up being 30-40 goal scoring first liner if all goes well, while Palmieri could be 20-30 goal scoring 1-2 liner. However, Palmieri is closer to his potential and more likely to get there than Etem is to his potential. DSP is basically a sure Duck player but his potential is something like 15-20 goals as a 2nd or 3rd liner.

Palmieri, Etem, Vatanen, DSP, Holland, Gibson, Lindholm... They are all great prospects and they all have huge potentials, differences are very minimal.
