I voted for Fast over CT.

Christian Thomas had a great 2010-11, but he regressed last season. He served a 10 game suspension early last season, and he never got on track. I was a big fan of his before this. But the thing you need to see most in a prospect is steady improvement. It's a major red flag when a young player, despite his skills, takes a step backward at the same level. Former draft picks Brendl, Copley & Jessiman are examples. I'm hoping it was a glitch because of the suspension, but his performance last year means he has something to prove.

Fast was productive at a high level before his injury. I heard Pierre Mcguire say (on WFAN) that he thinks Fast has more offensive upside than Carl Hagelin. I'll go with Fast for now.

Add Boo for his size & speed.
