Columbus (Murray, Erixon, Savard, Goloubef)
Buffalo (McNabb, Pysyk, Gauthier-Leduc, McCabe)
Not a specific order really, but the top 5 stand out as being the best imo.
Pittsburgh wins as far as high-end depth, but I think the Phoenix trio has the most upside.
I also think the Isles should be on this list: Reinhart, deHaan, Donovan, Mayfield, Pokka, Pelech, Kichton, Pedan. Aside from Reinhart there isn't much #1 d-man potential, but a lot of guys who could become solid 2nd pairing defensemen.
