The Wild should draft who?

Who would you all like to see the Wild draft? I would like to see Kopitar, Pouliot or Johnson.

I'd like to see them draft Crosby, but I doubt he'll slip quite that far.

So, that leaves Johnson, Brule, Kopitar, Ryan, and Pouliot.

I doubt Johnson will still be on the board. That means that of Ryan, Brule, Pouliot, and Kopitar, 3 of the 4 will still be available when the Wild draft.

Of those 4, I'd rather have Brule. If Carolina takes him, my second choice would be Pouliot. My third choice would be Ryan. I'd rather not have Kopitar at all. I could live with any of the other 3, but I don't like the sound of Kopitar.

I've reached the point where I'll be happy if we select any of the concensus top 6. I just hope Doug won't go off the board. If I had to pick:

1. Crosby
2. Johnson
3. Pouliot
4. B. Ryan
5. Brule
6. Kopitar

Really can't make out #3 from 4, 5, or 6 though. I'm sure 1 will be a bust, I just hope we're not the ones that bite that bullet.

I would love Johnson or Ryan, but i doubt Johnson lasts till 4 and i think the wild will now value speed above all else so it will come down to Pouliot or Brule IMO, so basically the one of those two that isnt taken at #3, my hope is Pouliot, more goal potential IMO

Johnson if he's there, but he most likely wont be. Brule would be my second choice then Pouliot, Ryan, Kopitar.
I'd be happy with any of them though. I just happen favor Johnson and Brule at this time.

Who I think they'll end up picking, Kopitar.
