Then they are wrong. There are maybe 5-8 superstars in this league currently.

That's like saying Jordan Staal is a better player than Backstrom because he came in and played a ton of SH TOI in his rookie and sophomore seasons.
That can be your opinion. RNH is insane, almost Giroux-esque in some regards. Even then, I wouldn't consider Giroux a 90-point player. I'd consider him a PPG player if not a little better.

Likewise, I think Huberdea, Strome, and Couturier have PPG ceilings, but like Richards and Carter and so many others, who knows how consistent that is.

You overrate his draft class, just like everyone else.
