Kreider - Biggest wildcard. Highest ceiling, IMO. It's too early to tell with him for sure, but I can't say that watching him I immediately was like, "wow, this kid is amazing." I was definitely impressed.
Werek - Loved the pick, still do. Don't see him as a first liner, though.
I like all four. I just don't see that extra something in them.
What exactly do you expect? You usually just don't get the sure-fire superstars outside the top-5 in the draft (and even there they are rare). And I think Stepan, Kreider and Grachev could very well turn out to be legit first liners. No Crosbys, Malkins or Ovechkins, but first liners nontheless.
