This is a close one. I think I'll take Fournier here over Holl and Whitney.

Whitney is a big project all though I love the pick. But you really can't trust goalies even when they are dominant in junior and he hasn't been yet. They are so unreliable and unpredictable that I can't justify picking one before two 2nd rounders. Just look, our 2nd rounder two years ago has had his stock fall in Kent Simpson.

Fournier has decent size and is a good skater. He also has some solid skills as well. Not a big fan of Holl. He is like the #4 defenseman on Minnesota so ... not very promising. Not great offensively or defensively. He really needs to have a breakout year otherwise I fear it is another wasted 2nd rounder(ie Ludvig Rensfeldt). Fournier looks to at least have high offensive potential.
