I am not a fan of the 2014 draft, in it's current state.
I'm not either. There's maybe 5 players that i'm interested in; Reinhart, Ekblad, Draisaitl, Nylander, and Barbashev... other than that, I don't see much coming from it.. but it seems like that always happens after a really deep draft year.
That's the thing though, he could be a top-10 pick.. but he needs to work on his skating. And considering the depth in this years first round, I think GM's would pick one of the others over him. I suppose I could see him being picked from 15-20, but to me, that's the highest considering the talent in that area.
For next year, I don't doubt he's a top-10 pick. If he improves his skating, which he more than likely will, he should very easily go top-5. Who knows though, we're still 4 months from this draft!! His skating could improve by then.
