Since no one answered me last time:

How does Filatov, with three straight years of disappointing development, still have "higher potential" than a guy like Silfverberg who has improved every year by leaps and bounds since he was drafted.

For the record, one of the biggest things scouts look at when evaluating "potential" is how quickly they improve from season to the next. That's why Huberdeau goes 3rd, and Couturier goes 8th. That's why Nugent-Hopkins goes 1st, and Larsson falls to 4th.

At this point, I'd be happy to see Filatov crack 20 goals a season in the NHL.
