Speers had a 4.51 ppg average last year and konecny scored 97 points in 30 games or somewhere around there.if they both can grow alot in the next couple of years I could see both going top 15 easily. It will be interesting to see how the mentorship cup goes this weekend and who will be the standouts
...at a minimum...and he's probably going to start speeding from *should* to *will*. still i'm very excited about him/barzal/noel. on top of that it seems like 2014/15 are going to be big GTHL to the NHL drafts.

the toronto-homer in me would love to see McDavid continue to dominate - but at the same time - i'd also love to see barzal and noel make things interesting. for '15 there are other players from the GTHL who i think will end up top 30 (i'm mentioning GTHL just b/c it's what i see most...no disrespect to other leagues re '15).

for the opinions of others...how do you think that McDavid/Barzal/Noel compare to the very top players from previous drafts (from Canada)? IMO...the three of them collectively represent a level of strength collectively at the top that we haven't seen recently. I don't mean in a generic "top 3 from the draft"...i mean in a canadian-sense...it seems like we're seeing the top 3 canadians at the top in quite some time.
