Maybe I am using the elite term a little too loosely. Jones, Drouin, Mackinnon, and Barkov, who some think is a small tick below the other 3, are the first level of prospects that are considered superstar. Nichuskin would be there as well if he wasn't Russian and signed in the KHL. I think it's ISS that has him rated #2 overall so some think he is special too. After those guys, you have Monahan, Lindholm, and Nurse who project to be great players but not guaranteed (as much as you can guarantee any draft pick) super star level as the other 5. So I said elite 8.
