Sheldon MohammedContributor IJanuary 11, 2009

If the Maple Leafs had the third overall pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, who do you think Brian Burke would pick?

Would he pick Jordan Schroeder, the highly talented American who plays like a cross between Joe Sakic and Patrick Kane?

Would he pick Magnus Svennson Paajarvi, the gifted Swedish winger who plays like Henrik Zetterberg?

Would he pick Brayden Schenn, Luke's older brother, Who is big, tough and gritty, all the qualities Burke likes in a player?

Or would he pick someone else?


You decide for yourself: who would he pick?
