Marek Hrivik is a very good defensive player. This is a guy who was trained by a Jacques Lemaire style coach in juniors and he fully bought into that system (unlike Gaborik under Lemaire). I am having a hard time thinking up a play that I remember seeing where I went, "oh crap, what the hell did Hrivik just do on defense?"

That said, Lindberg is a very legitimate choice here, as are Thomas and St. Croix because these two have easily the highest ceiling of any remaining prospects.
