The prize is 1 thru 3 so the draft is not as deep as promoted or the fans have no interest other than a top 3. After going thru this season at 4 we should expect pretty good prospect and Barkov may well turn out to be better than the top 3. Even after being burned by a Russia DP must consider Nichushkin most all scouting reports have him above Barkov.

Best case DP finds one of the top 3 willing to move down to 4 and a piece or two. We should know in 30 days or so.

Notice how it's the Canadian players that get super hype?? Mack, jones and drouin will for sure no matter what be top three in this elite high end draft! No European could ever beat these three Canadian hockey players out!

And in Europe they are saying same thing that barkov, nichushkin should be on top three.

It's all on the scouts, which is why we have North American scouts and European scouts.

Barkov, Mack, drouin, nichushkin and jones are top five hands down, bottom line, all oozing elite lite potential, so your right, it's is a crap shoot, 1-5 is a crap shoot because odds are they could all be elite or one or two miss. You never know until down the road.

Lindholm is definitely not a chance in top five. Sorry bro.

Someone said barkov was only sure to play against NHL players this season,
Didnt nichushkin as well being in khl??
