Never understand how someone like Skinner, leading or was leading the league in goals, is ranked lower than Burmistrov and McFarland. Skinner has great hockey sense, speed and great hands.
Way too much hype on McFarland for way too long, dont get me wrong, has the skill set for a first rounder but has been projected top 10 for too long.
Burmistrov has a smoother stride, and the way he plays the game makes scouts feel like he's going to be a top player in the NHL, regardless of whether he's actually doing anything in the OHL that night. Burmistrov is more about projection, Skinner is more about production.

I prefer Skinner, but I can see how Burmistrov would be appealing. Burmistrov just LOOKS like a good player.
