Who are the top 5 NHL prospects from the WHL

Who are the top 5 NHL prospects from the WHL out of this group? Feel free to elaborate on your picks! (deleted the earlier poll, as one prospect got all the votes; this poll should be better, as in it gives more insight)

My own selections: Dion Phaneuf, Braydon Coburn, Ryan Getzlaf, Konstantin Pushkarev, Eric Fehr

Phaneuf, Getzlaf, Weber, Coburn, Seabrook in that order

It's amazing how the WHL produce so much defensemen with a nice size/skill combo

1. Phaneuf- He gets huge hype on these boards, but nonetheless a great prospect. When you watch him you see what a great dman he could become.
2. Getzlaf- I'm really sold on him. Great vision and hands for a big guy, as well as good physical game. He will no doubt be a solid NHLer. He's got great moves for PF.
3. Coburn- I really like this guy. Big guy, could stand to fill out his frame and perhaps be more physical, but will get plenty of ice time in Altanta and should develop into a very good defenceman.
4. Seabrook- Crease clearing, big hitting defenceman. I think he will be able to keep his physical edge in the NHL and if he stays free of injuries, Chicago should benefit from a solid d man. He's produced offensively in the WHL as well and I think he'll be able to bring a bit of that to the NHL. Seems a bit underrated to me, but I really love his game and what he brings to the game.
5. Again 5 was hard for me. I wasen't sure between Weber and Fehr. Both should be good NHLers though. Fehr needs to bulk up imo. He should get good icetime in Washington, which will undoutedly help him.
I don't know why, but for some reason, though I love Shea Weber as a junior, I don't know how well he will do in the pros. He could be an effective stay-at-home guy imo. Both are very good prospects though.

I would add Ladd. He has been very solid in the playoffs. Seems very solid and really rounding out his game. Poitsn may be down, but the Hitmen as a whole was down and the kid is improving.
