You cannot downplay the 3+ extra months of development, the responsibilities given to those at different stages, the opportunities (including number of international competitions) given to those of different draft years/ages, or most importantly, the help and support given by professional organizations once prospects are drafted.
Not to mention that many people on these forums base their rankings off of international scouting that look at far more than just the points that many of you are judging Hamilton by, and none of you know how Hamilton would be rated even if he was eligible for this year's draft.
Not to mention that it is not only Murray that people are comparing him too, and many people in this draft year have had less years or less experiences playing at that level than Hamilton.
