6. Emerson Etem 29th overall

5. Beau Bennet 20th overall

2. Jacob Markstrom 35 overall

1. Chuckie 3rd overall

so 4 out of 10 are 1st round, 6 out of 10 are top 60. The main reason there aren't more top-5 overall picks is either because they aren't in the NHL yet (Ryan Murray, Rielly etc.) or are already established (Yakupov, Hall, Seguin). Chuckie is only on this list because he wasn't given the same prime minutes as the others top-5 picks. The authors do say that ''An improvement to 20 goals and 60 points would be a nice step forward for this player who, down the road, has star potential.''
