Every year is the "worst year". Everybody questioned the top-end talent of last years and we had Landeskog, RNH, Couturier, etc. all full-time NHLers (2 Calder nominees with Landeskog winning) and top prospects such as Huberdeau, Zibanejad, Hamilton all coming from the same draft.
If anything, this draft reminds me of '08. Weak at forward, strong on defense. Lots of busts but lots of solid future NHLers too. Stamkos, Karlsson, Pietrangelo & Doughty > any player in this draft though unless one of these guys becomes a superstar in the next 4 years (possible but I find it unlikely).
All the defensemen from Murray to Pouliot could be top-4 guys, and theres something like 15 of them.
