The think the real allure of the top end of this draft is that there are 7 or 8 players who could likely step into the NHL right away and make some sort of positive impact. I'm as guilty as anyone when it comes to getting excited about top picks and prospects, but I also realize that the reality is outside of those top two or three picks, there's rarely ever a "sure thing" available to you.
