Petrov

Our possible top-6 are:

Kreider
Thomas
Fasth
Miller
Zuccarello
St. Croix
McColgan

Their top-2 are great, but at some point, "quantity has a quality of its own" in the sense that you don't need every prospect to make it, you can have 2-3 lower prospects who each have a lesser chance individually, but together have equivalent or higher odds.
Not to nitpick, but they actually scored 1 goal more than us.

I'm no expert on the Islanders' prospects, but is that really all of their prospects that have a chance of becoming a top 6 player? I think when we start to include players like McColgan, St. Croix and Fasth, that's stretching it a bit. There's a reason these guys went in the later rounds. I actually think there's a much higher chance none of them become top 6 players than one of them does.
