Personally, I'd still take RNH because he's a center and has played in the NHL already, but I wouldn't be surprised if any of those 3 established themselves as being as good or better than him.
Yea you could make a case for them, I just don't see it happening. Kuznetsov would have to put up crazy numbers to be on RNH's level.

Also, I would absolutely love to hear how you came up with those statistics about 99% of teams.
So do you think Kuznetsov would have put up RNH numbers as a 18 year old rookie?

The NHL is the best league in the world for a reason, and RNH was dominating in his first season.

As for the last part, any GM in the league would be stupid not to take RNH over a guy that COULD be better, and especially one that has a high chance for the russian factor attached to him.

Lets wait and see how he does in the NHL first. If he ever comes to the NHL.
