    I like Reinhart here, looks like he'll be an NHL dman, will ge tthe oppurtunity to be an NHL dman and has good upside. In terms of the other ones, Vatanen and it seems like Barbeiro obviously have big offensive upside but I like a safe pick here so I'll go with Tyson Barrie and if not him then McNabb.

    Not Blum, Merrill has some red flags, if you're gonna pick an Islander then Reinhart so not Donovan/de Haan.

    Looking at the catagories, I would be taking Reinhart and McNabb. Both have huge upside and the fact your reward PIMs make both very attractive in your league setup.

    How do you guys determine "upside" I'm sure everyone is a bit different but I'd like to hear personal opinions (not of players but just how you would come up with upside potential).

    McNabb for sure - he's closest, and will be valuable with your scoring categories.

    I really like Vatanen too and feel he could have an immediate offensive impact. Won't get you PIM or any of those stats, though.

    Really considered McNabb and Reinhart, due to the PIM and Reinhart potentially being the best overall d-man on the list, but.....

    I went with Blum and Donovan. Blum's getting written off by a lot of people because of his sophomore slump last season. It happens, especially to defensemen. He still has a very good offensive game and it's not like the Preds have forgotten about him, he'll be back in the NHL and given opportunity.

    Donovan has some grit to his game as well....63 PIM in 72 games last year as an AHL rookie, over a PIM/G both years in college. I also think although Reinhart might end up being the Isles #1 d-man, Donovan could run the PP in a couple years. Offensively I give him the edge, and the Isles are going to be scoring a lot of goals in the coming seasons.

    Reinhart for sure and then I'd go with the highest points upside and that's Vatanen IMO.

    Interesting group to choose from. I chose McNabb and Barrie. Not as sold on the other making an impact as quickly (like in the next 3 years).
