Plus all those Landeskog prospects, who were basically flying under the radar until Christmas time and get hyped as top 10 picks.

If anyone is curious, here is my preseason Top 30.

Here is also RS top 12 from the WHL for the 2013 draft.
Unfortunately, this phrase is uttered pretty much every draft cycle. Its gotten to the point where it has no meaning to me. Last year was supposed to be loaded, turned out pretty weak now this year etc.

I'll be satisfied with pretty much any 1st rd pick, seeing as how we didn't have ours last year. Drafts are always the same if you don't have a top pick you're not going to get one of those "sure fire" players like RNH or Landeskog. I'd say every draft outside anything outside the top 5 becomes a real crap shoot just because some players pan and some other who were thought the be stars fizzle.
