My vote's for Orlov, and I'd say add Herbert.

Eakin is a safer bet, Orlov the higher upside.

No. He's not Calder eligible, so I didn't include him.

Tough one...toss up between Orlov and Eakin but have to go dman as harder to draft and develop.

Went with Orlov. Eakin could make a difference this year, but Orlov could have a much larger impact in a year or so.

Not sure on who to add at this point…

Orlov based on upside (though I like Eakin better as a prospect, I guess).

Orlov definitely seems to have the higher upside.

Add Grubauer or Herbert.

i said eakin just to make it a dead heat.

weird comparison though. maybe eakin projects to boyd gordon downside, almost-daymond langkow upside at the far extremes?

orlov? gonchar upside, dick tarnstrom downside? anyone who watched him a lot think that's fair? unnecessarily mean?

add brouwer.

I've got Orlov by a nose. More of a boom or bust prospect, though.

Eakin

When with Eakin - more likely to suit up and matter.

Orlov for the upside is the only reason I give him the edge over Eakin.

Wouldn't call Orlov soft, he just lacks defensive instincts.

Imo if he hits his absolute peak I think he'll be Andrei Markov, if not a lesser version of Sergei Gonchar.
