ISS ranked him 2nd. Central Scouting had him as the #1 Euro prospect (they don't do blended rankings). Bob McKenzie's rankings (a meta-ranking of various NHL scouts) had him at #3 overall.

These aren't just pool book predictions. They're legit scouting organizations and NHL scouts.

But it'll all come out in the wash. I'm just saying, when you go off the board like that, you better be sure. Otherwise you end up with Thomas Hickey.
