Like I said in the original poll, you should always take the stand-out defenseman over the above average forward.

above average? I'd probably take Johnson (and voted for him) but calling Brule simply above average is ridiculous.

Yep. Above average? Come on now, being only an above average forward doesn't get you chosen in the first few picks of a draft.

That being said I chose Johnson.

Brule is a future franchise forward, not an above-average forward. Johnson has closed the gap for No. 2, but I'll still take Brule. Brule had the best performance by a forward in the history of the Prospects Game, and did it all with the added pressure of playing at home.

I didn't exactly mean it that way. What I'm trying to say is that a marquee defenseman like Johnson stands out--it's much harder to find a franchise defenseman than it is to find a scorer like Brule. His offense can be replaced by that of two players near his talent level--two players who are much easier to come by than a Johnson.

"Above-Average" was an incredibly poor choice of words, I admit.

Yea, I see your point now, just mis-understood because of your words. I agree with what you said, as well, which is why I would also take JJ over Gilbert.

It is not a stretch to call JJ an ''above average'' defenceman prospect seeing as Brian Lee was chosen over him for the USA squad. 22-14 Brule in the lead, the posters of HF have spoken.
