Has anyone seen all 4 play?
I have. Right now I'd rank them:
RNH (home run pick, IMO)
Nugent-Hopkins is the one with superstar potential in this group. His hands, vision and skating are sick. He's Stamkos-like but a supreme set up man rather than supreme scorer. He's also pretty brilliant defensively. I haven't even mentioned his best asset yet, his IQ.
Larsson is safe, not exciting but he'll eat up lots of hard minutes and he can move the puck.
Landeskog is all heart and leadership. He'll be a winner and push guys around him to be better every shift. He battles like crazy and wills his way to scoring. His skill gets underratted too, much like Jonathan Toews' did when people called him a gritty leader.
Couturier is a great consolation. Big boy who will get strong. He's got offensive instincts you can't teach.
