It's said to be a top-heavy draft with some gems in the top 5-7, but thins out after that. Canadian talent in this draft is limited, while Russian and European in general talent level is high. Don't be surprised to see the top 5 players selected all being European.

While I've heard it's supposed to be a top-heavy draft with a thin amount of talent in the mid to late first round, keep in mind that it's Canadian sources making these statements. Since this is more of a European-focused draft, it's hard to say at this point whether it's truly limited in its depth, or whether it's just Canadian scouts/media being unaware of the amount of depth there is from Europe in this draft.
