They're very different types of defensemen, so projecting "higher" is moot. Harrington's a defense-first type, Dumoulin and Maatta are two-way types, and Pouliot's a dynamic offensive type.

In spite of our recent inability to score against Boston, shutdown defense is our greatest need on the blueline. Harrington has been the best shutdown prospect in junior the past couple years, and would make the perfect complement to Letang if he keeps progressing as well as he has to this point.

That said, I'd prefer to hang onto all of them unless absolutely blown away.
