Generally I just get the feel that the 95's are the weakest group out of all 90-97. Would be really cool if someone could talk some sense in me tho
The forwards lack depth, but have top guys obviously with Burakovsky, de la Rose and Wallmark. They will need some -96 firepower.
The D's outside of those you mentioned are the Rögle trio Cederholm, Hansson and Krupic mostly. The former two have gotten games in Elitserien and Krupic has tore it up offensively before. Craig Button has Hägg, Westlund and Hansson top60 in his mid-season draft ranking(Bergman is a 2014 pick). We're not talking about two-three high first rounders, but some solid enough competition. As a comparison, the -94 age group only has one first round defenseman and two top60, Arnesson is yet to be drafted though.
