Ridiculous!!!

And as for where Galchenyuk would stand... I'd say he'd be out of the top 5 for sure. Monahan has just as many points as him on a crappier team while being a year younger and better defensively. Barkov and Linholm are already doing very well in their top tier leagues and would be ready for the big show as 18-19 year olds. MacKinnon and Jones that goes without saying
I don't think Carrier or Mantha go 11-20 based on what is known right now. Both look like really late 1st(26-30) or early 2nd's(31-40).

Monahan is also a late birthday 1994, so he is only a month older than some 2012 picks. Galchenyuk is also just getting going after a slow start after having missed most of last year. Last 7 games he is 8-9-17 and +10.
