Bob MacKenzie's list, which is the best of the bunch IMO, is based on several teams' scouts. It's a 'scout survey'. As posted, another recent poll of 15 individual NHL scouts were unanimous selecting Ryan Nugent-Hopkins except for one who refused to make a decision. Another recent poll of NHL scouts was one sided in favor of Nugent-Hopkins when asking if he or Seguin would be the better center.
