Don't be surprised if Hudon is up in the top ten by the next Top 20 list as I prefer to see the whole season not just half of it to decide any bigger move of a player. I would have loved to see how Hudon's play at the 2013 WJC tournament against the elite of his age group. He still needs to show more to reach the same overall game that Holland had in his last two years in junior. Hudon is probably the better scorer between the two but Holland is a better playmaker and has the bigger frame to get larger. Holland's hockey IQ is off the charts and he has always improved with each year at any level. Dietz could be ahead of Ellis soon as well. The 5th-12th and 15th- down are really close together for me and it's simply a matter of time to see how it's all going to play out development wise.
Nattinen was a HRM but didn't get into the article. Thanks for reading the article!
