Haha. At this rate, doesn't look like you are actually going to have to post the poll.

Voting Aberg, but knowing Shero I wouldn't be mad if Pouliot was our pick.

Tons of good names up there. Hopeful that the draft falls this way. From what I've read and started studying.. I'm going against my team here and saying Wilson is a guy I'd be intrigued taking.

But looks like i'm HEAVILY outnumbered.

Full disclosure: I'm not a prospect guy. I'm an x's and o's guy. I just like what scouts are saying about the kid.

You know what... I'd roll the dice and go Frk over Aberg. I like his skillset better for translating to NHL success -- better shot, uses his teammates better, more size (though that's not as important as the other two) -- plus I'm always drawn to players that fall due to injury.

Malcom Subban could be a good pick too.

I'm also going with Aberg. He's the highest ranking forward on my board.

I'm sad that my guy Koekkoek is on the board.

Not a fan of Frk as a first round pick. I have him ranked more of a top second round pick. I don't think he has good enough foot speed yet and his conditioning is so poor (not just do to injuries either). I would take him in the second round (at any pick) in a second.

Aberg's meant to have a good shot to and got injured in the 2nd half of the year.

I picked Aberg, but wouldn't mind Samuelsson.

Tom Wilson.

Let's get some size and grit to our offensive prospects pool.

Frk actually needs to work on using his teammates more and Aberg I've read is a top ten talent who fell due to injury as well.

I'm going with Aberg, eventhough Im not a fan of speculating when I haven't seen a guy play, but I have read so many positive things about him.

Maybe the Pens nab both... or draft b2b blueliners again.

Went with Aberg, but Frk or Skjei (skating ability) also are intriguing.

You'd draft Skjei over Pouliot?

Wilson, but Aberg would be nice.

Package in trade to PHX that brings back OEL and Vermette. Then bring forth the Cup. This year's draft crop looks pretty uninspiring based on everything I've read (other than the top 3 or 4 guys).

Why is there no Sissons? He would be my pick.

I went with Skjei by default.

Voted Aberg.

I was tempted to choose Pouliot though.

Mainly because of skating and size. If the league is going back to more clutching and grabbing, and not calling stuff, I'd rather have a big guy that can also skate like the wind than an undersized guy who might have higher offensive ceiling, but who might be hampered by the decline in obstruction calls.

his scouting report is quite similar to Despres was at the same age.

Nicolas Kerdiles - IMO has some nice size mixed with skill. He reminds me a little of Bertuzzi or Franzen in that he's a big bullish power forward but not overly mean.

Also wouldn't mind Aberg or Dansk. Lots of good players still around... I hope the real draft turns out that way.

Shero said it best after drafting Despres. Size & Skating never go out of style.
