If I imagine I'm a fan of another team, it's probably more like:

Berglund

Oshie/Perron
I came here to say, Berglund, then Oshie, and Perron. I don't have quite the man-crush on Perron as I do for Oshie (he's effective and I see that, but Oshie is far more exciting), and I think Berglund is a few steps ahead of Oshie in terms of offensive ability, both now and in the future.

Oshie because his type of player doesn't come around very often. He's going to be a clutch guy on both sides of the ice.

Really tough to choose though.. Perron and Berglund have just as much talent in different areas of play. Perron is due for a huge season...Berglund is working into that #1 center mold.

The fact that the three were chosen #24, #25, and #26 overall makes me too angry to decide. St. Louis is just going to be so good and never stop, if they keep this up.

Oshie
Berglund


Perron

... first two are close, I sort of feel like Berglund might be the better overall player in terms of eventual production and impact, but I like the scrappiness of Oshie. Perron isn't in their class IMHO.

I saw a ton of each of these guys last year, mostly playing on a line together all year. It depends on what you're looking for. I think in terms of straight offensive production, Berglund will be the best. Perron has speed, and believe it or not, is extremely scrappy. I can't tell you how many scrambles i saw him get in with guys way bigger than him, and he'd somehow almost always come away with the puck. I think Oshie has rubbed off on him, because last year's Perron never gave up on plays, and showed the kind of tenacity that almost scares the other team, because they know they're going to have to do their absolute best to beat them in battles. I completely agree with the other poster though, who said that Oshie is the hardest to replace. He is so much fun to watch, he absolutely brings it every night, and litterally outworks all of his opponents. He has great two-way play, and let's be honest, he's fairly gifted offensively as well. He's Brenden Morrow, with a little less size, and a little more skill. He's a future captain. When do you remember a player having his willingness to make the right play, mixed with his offensive ability? When I think of T.J. Oshie, I think of Clark Gillies. Tough as nails (absolutely destroying Rick Nash.... TWICE) but with offensive ability that could see him score 70+ pts for a good stretch of his career.

Accordingly, I would take Oshie, then Berglund, then Perron. I like Perron, don't get me wrong, but he's got some fairly stiff competition.

Damn St.Louie has some sick young talent..... I would say Berglund definitely has the highest upside of the three even though i love the way Oshie plays with that gritty in your face style and Perron with his sick puck handling skills, yeah i would say that i'm a bit envious of the Blues talent

1/2. Berglund/Oshie
3. Perron

I think it's REALLY close between Berglund and Oshie.. each one is stronger at a different style of game but both have the potential to be very good at said style. This is no knock on Perron, the kid is massively skilled and has loads of offensive potential IMO.

Oshie
Berglund

Perron

Not a slight against Perron. I'd gladly take him on my team. Good thing we didn't have a 1st round pick that year or I'd be mad.

Three way tie. (In other words, I haven't yet decided.)

My list used to be:

1. Berglund
2. Oshie
3. Perron

but the more I hear about Perron from the Blues organization and press, I think he's my pick to be the best overall player. The kid is great in the corners, fiesty, has amazing hands, is still filling out and getting stronger, is now the fastest player on the Blues, and really stood out in the playoffs last year while much of the team was flat. I get the feeling this is gonna be his breakout year. He has all the tools to be a great player and seems to love being on the ice. Berglund and Oshie are right there though, no doubt.

If I had a team, I'd take Oshie first, followed by Berglund.

TBH, I thought Perron would get more love, and I actually thought he'd be the one Blues fans would pick to keep. (Reading rumrokh's posts too often.. )

Though, when I actually think more about it, it's kind of like "well, then again, Oshie is a great two-way player and a huge fan favourite.. and Berglund is a huge skilled centre.."

I didn't even realize just how tough it would be to choose one of these guys. Though some people are saying X by a mile, so maybe it's not that tough for some.

Yea, I'm REALLY glad I don't have to choose. I pick Perron just because I think he has the highest ceiling. But it wouldn't surprise me to see the other two end up being better.

I believe Perron will become a special player. Speedy winger with an accurate wrist shot. I'm gonna go as far as comparing his point totals to another young winger who broke out last year; Phil Kessel.

Patrik Berglund is a coach's dream. 6'4" Centers with a tonne of playmaking ability don't grow on trees. T.J. Oshie is a tad bit overrated IMO. I just don't think he'll ever be putting up the numbers Perron and Berglund are capable of. He will be a special player for St. Louis nonetheless, but won't be depended on offensively the way Perron and Berglund will be.

In summary:
1. Perron
2. Berglund
3. Oshie

If you look at it offensively, yeah that's probably correct. But give me Oshie because he'll be putting up 60+ points while being the heart and soul of the team. That's the guy I want.

I can't decide and as a Blues fan I don't have to since we have all 3 (luckily). I'm glad we have all 3 of them and they all have bright futures ahead so only time will tell who really becomes the best player.
