4) Ryan Johansen
5) Nino Niederreiter
6) Brett Connoly
7) Jeff Skinner
8) Alexander Burmistrov

12) Cam Fowler

37) Justin Faulk

42) Devante Smith-Pelly

Of that crop, I'd put Burmi's rate of development behind that of:

Hall, Seguin, Skinner, Fowler and Faulk.

Players without NHL experience:

He's probably a little behind Granlund (picked 10th), and maybe Tarasenko (16th) / Kuznetsov (26th)

That makes 8 players that have obviously out done Burmi and leaves 202 of 210 players drafted that year lagging behind. That seems about right for an 8th overall pick.

Who else from that draft class would you trade Burmi for? Without thinking too hard, the only other player I might consider is Niederreiter.
I'm assuming you mean who would you trade him for besides Hall, Seguin, Skinner, Fowler, Faulk, Granlund, Tarasenko, and Kuznetsov?

The only ones that I would even consider are Johansen, Gudbrandson, or Niederreiter.

Which is what I was trying to say in another thread. Going all chicken little about a 21 year old, who is doing better than 96% of his draft class seems more than a little short sighted.
