He is not even the best defensive prospect on the Saskatoon roster. Dietz does everything, every powerplays, every penalty-killings, top-pairing on 5vs5... he plays around 35 minutes per game, but he is just "ok" according to the prospect board. If he would have been drafted 11 overall, everyone would overrate him and say he has top-pairing potential.

But I still prefer Morgan Ellis over Darren Dietz. Dietz is very good in both ends, but Ellis is just so smart. I think he can become a great second pairing defensive defenceman. IMO he is a better prospect than Siemens and Dietz.

Oh... I feel better now haha !
I don't know about Dietz (although I like him a lot) but I agree that Siemens has yet to show anything to justify being selected that high. Every time I watch him he makes at least one boneheaded decision.
