Because it's harder to judge a player solely on one great season. He hasn't had the benefit of playing 2 junior seasons as 17 and 18 year olds as the other top players. RNH is the only player considered in the top 4 and is a 17 year old in his draft year. But he put up a much more impressive season as a 16 year old last year than Strome, which is why he's getting much love these days.
