Being small has nothing to do with injuries. It's unlikely Nuge has injury problems, as he rarely gets hit. RNH is a higher tier of player than Landeskog is, and that should be evident soon.
I'm not saying anything about who is going to be the best from their draft class, cause it's pretty impossible to say at this point. But I think us Oiler fans all know what we are gonna be getting from Taylor Hall and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Nuge will be a 70+ point guy, and that's with the lowest expectations. If he continues to develop and use his elite vision, 90+ isn't out of the question. Hall will be a 30+ goal 70-80 point player. Hard to say if he will be the best from his draft year, but I wouldn't call that underachieving.
Too early to say anything about Yakupov, but it's hard to imagine him not lighting the league up with a shot like his.
