Quite a range from Crosby to Toews, but no, there's no Crosby-like generational talent in this draft. It's a draft deep in premier talent though and it will be one of the best top 10's in quite a long time. For comparison's sake:

Seth Jones- Shea Weber
Nathan MacKinnon- Stamkos lite
Jonathan Drouin- Pat Kane lite
Aleksander Barkov- Mikko Koivu
Sean Monahan- Toews lite
Elias Lindholm- Spezza
Darnell Nurse- Seabrook
Hunter Shinkaruk- Cory Conacher
Valery Nichushkin- Van Riemsdyk
Rasmus Ristolainen- Timmonen
Frederik Gauthier- Couturier
Adam Erne- James Neal
