Its not a weak draft in terms of depth, in fact a number of GM's have gone on record as saying that this years draft is very deep.
What it lacks is star power. There is one or two players in Nugent-Hopkins and Larsson that have the real star power potential, where as all the rest have great player potential. Look back to previous years, while there was always a consensus top pick (with the exception of Tyler and Taylor), the top 10 picks+ all have star potential.
The difference in talent in this years draft after the 1st round and drafts past is no different at all, what is different is the top 10 guys dont all have the super high ceiling like in years past.
Doesnt make it a weak draft in depth, just not many real stars.
