Personally I don't see Rantanen as a 1st round prospect, at least not at the moment.
Saarela is insanely good for his age, has all the tools to be a top nhl prospect. Obviously there's still so much time until the draft that he might even go undrafted if his development stalls, but still he's a better player than all of our current top prospects were at the same age, and on a different maturity level. I think you're selling him short if you only loosely describe him as a potential 1st rounder.

I haven't seen Rantanen enough to say much, but why is he not a 1st round prospect in your eyes?
