I like PK a lot but is he worth a top 5 pick in this draft?
A top 5 pick has twice the "bust" risk a guy like PK has. Why take that chance? We already know PK can be a force at the NHL level, we just need him to mature and reign in a few of the things he does that hurt the team. Some early picks never translate into top flight NHLers.
