Cowan vs. Kulikov vs. Depres

Id like to get peoples opions on how you would rate these three defenseman in these catagories.

Best Overall: Cowan, Depres, Kulikov
Most Physical: Cowan, Depres, Kulikov
Most Offensive: Kulikov, Depres, Cowan
Best Defensive: Cowan, Depres, Kulikov
Highest Ceiling: Kuikov, Cowan, Depres????

How would your rank them??

I haven't seen these 3 but John Moore will be a great pick for someone.

I still think that Cowen could be a huge steal. He's fallen due to injuries, but he could very well turn out to be a very good defenseman in this league. High risk/high reward pick.

Agreed, alot of great defenseman this year that could be taken in the 10-20 range. (Ellis, Moore, Kulikov, Ekman-Larsson, Despres)

Unless I'm getting great news from my medical staff on Cowen, I'm taking any of the 2 before.

This is too good a draft to take a gamble in the top 15.

Highest ceiling: very tough for me, but I say Despres. If he can finally start to find some offense, he can be Bouwmeester-esque. Then Cowen, then Kulikov.

We all know you mean Cowen, but (Jeff) Cowan, is an ineffective grinder.

despres is pretty overrated if you ask me.. i've seen him play quite a few times the last two years and i don't see whats to get so excited about with this kid... he should be a first rounder but not in the top half

Though neither is particular physical, I would give Despres the edge over Kulikov in this category.
Other then that, I agree with your assessment on the two.
