Same could have been said of David Perron, Tanner Pearson, Wayne Simmonds, etc as well.

Slepshev was well known last year, people had him ranked 30-45. Clearly teams had talked to him and he had no interest in coming to NA. Unless he has changed his tone, no need to waste a pick on Slepshev. If he has, he could go as high as 25-30, IMO.

Anyways, I feel like this whole "strong draft class'" thing is becoming HUGELY overrated. Outside of the top bit, it's completely impossible at this time to predict if the 2nd half of 1st round or later is stronger than any other year.
