    I'd say Vrana short and long term. Should be a fixture in the top 6 of a skilled team for years.

    At this point, I am not sure how you can justify taking Batherson over Vrana. It's not like Vrana has reached his potential and is already playing in the NHL.

    Vrana very easily. Higher upside and already playing in the NHL.

    I can't right now. Just curious. I actually like Vrana a lot but always like to see if there are better options. That's why I ask you folks. You all are pretty good at giving sound advice.

    Vrana would be my choice but I honestly can't give you some great concrete reasoning behind it. I was high on Vrana last year and he was a complete let down, relatively speaking. I know he started to show up later in the season and through the playoff run, but so did everyone else around him.

    Having a Cup under his belt is a nice confidence booster as well.

    Vrana is the easy choice. As to the second pairing, I think that Batherson being less of a known provides him with a chance of outperforming Jankowski. So I'll take the Drake, although Jankowski could be the winner by being a more reliable NHL player.

    Vrana. And Jankowski versus Batherson is a coin flip to me. Jankowski will get you points sooner, but given your rebuild, I'm not sure that matters to you...
