All the top guys are playing in the NHL right now. Stamkos has higher upside than Hodgson too. Really, I don't think Hodgson is top 5 calibre in this draft, not that he is a bad player. He will be very good, just not as good as Stamkos, Doughty, Bogo, Schenn and Filatov.

Schenn for me, he is really showing defensive prowess and at a really young age. He's a good player to watch.

EDIT: I think Boedker will be overlooked by HFboards, but he is simply a joy to watch. He will be a top player for Phoenix.
