Overhyping prospects much?
I think he means they should be in one of the two top-pairings, so that would make them top-4. So Finn, Percy and Rielly should all become top-4 guys, with Blacker having potential to become one as well. And then he listed 3 other guys who could make the NHL, and anywhere in the D-core would be a success for them. Saying that 3 projected-1st-rounders could all become top-4 defensemen in the NHL isn't that big a stretch, and isn't over-hyping them when it's just allowing them to reach their potential. Everyone saying what these kids can become is very careful in expressing that it's just the best possible outcome, not necessarily a prediction of any kind.
