For example, would there really be a tremendous difference if our top picks resulted in:

Landeskog-Sequin-Eberle

Gagner-Galchenyuk-Hemsky

vs.

Hall-RNH-Eberle

Yakupov-Gagner-Hemsky

Both groups would clearly be able to get the job done at an elite level. Would one really be much better than the other?

Again, its how the rest of the line up fills out that will really make the difference.
The intangibles on the first line are unsustainable.

As to the actual topic, you take BPA every time. Every single time. Yakupov >> Galchenyuk.
