Went with Jaskin. Now that he'll be playing against his own age group this season, hopefully we will see why the Blues drafted him just a few spots after Rattie.

There are only 1/2 dozen skaters Ponich size currently in the NHL. Not saying he won't make it, but its much harder for guys his size. Just something to take into consideration. I went with Jaškin. I agree with Iowa that we should start to see his true potential this season.

Went with Jaskin. From what Rutherford has said, the Blues weren't too excited about Ponich's first year in the A. Hopefully he continues to work on his game and become a useful NHL level defenseman.

To be fair, there aren't many guys his size that play hockey, period. Or that exist.

Went with Ponich for same reasons as before...Lots of talent in a bunch here with no bad selection. Pretty much interchangeable. Just a matter of how you view talent and prospects. Let's see what Jaskin does in Juniors. Really have no idea what we have at this point, until we see how he does with a larger role. Probably pick Andronov over him as well. Both are in the same spot, but Andronov is at the professional level. Closer to the show. Jaskin isn't that far along, but probably is the most talented of the three. I just prefer those closer to St. Louis as less of a suspect.

This was a VERY tough decision. Jaskin has a fair amount of upside scoring potential. But, he hasn't shown it yet at higher levels. He needs to become stronger, and play more physically (although he is better at those things than many others are at his age and level. He looks like a decent candidate to be a decent 2-way forward, and have a well-rounded game. THAT made me decide to have him barely edge out Ponich, who I believe will have a more one-sided game, with little offensive help for a team, but, probably will grow into a decent defensive defenceman. Good defensive defencemen are worth more than one-sided scoring forwards that play weak defence, and avoid the hitting game. But Jaskin's 2-way potential and decent scoring upside (IF met) gives him the edge in my book.

Veilleux for me. I have little faith in Jaskin and Ponich needs to show he can handle speed.

Got Veilleux next.
