yea, I agree. I think play wise and potential wise each one of those three is different. Play style wise, Gardiner is a center with decent size, and can use that to his advantage. He played a solid two-way game for the Saints in the USHL last year. I think Gardiner has potential to be a taller Ryan Johnson type player; someone who won't score much, but uses their specific skill set to their advantage. Peluso is a tough guy who won't be more than a 4th liner. He does offer decent ability to get in front of the net, but I do not think he will differ from other tough guys in the league. I'm not as high on Walters as a lot of people are here. Yea, he plays a nasty D game, but I do not think that will translate to the pros. His +/- is terrible, and he over commits way too much.

I voted for Cundari, but I think Gardiner is a close second. I was impressed with Barriball last year in his AHL stint, but I think his age will limit him.
