Bob McKenzie came out with his preseason Top-15 for the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. You can find it here.

3. William Nylander, LW
4. Leon Draisaitl, C/LW
5. Sam Bennett, C
T6. Jake Virtanen, RW
T6. Nick Ritchie, LW
8. Kasperi Kapanen, RW
9. Michael Dal Colle, LW/C
10. Jakub Vrana, LW
T11. Anton Karlsson, RW
T11. Haydn Fleury, LD
13. Nick Schmaltz, C
14. Ivan Barbashev, C
15. Roland McKeown, RD
HM. Adrian Kempe, LW
HM. Matt Mistele, C

ISS also came out with their September rankings

Some thoughts...

- I don't feel there's alot of consenus among the top. Alot more ties in McKenzie's rankings. Sounds like the draft is very compacted with talent that isn't as high end as the one that just passed.

- I think Draisaitl will stay within the Top-5. The not-so-secret is out.

- From an Oiler perspective, Almost assuredly I think we'll aim for a center and I'm looking at prospects projected out of the Top-10. I'd be keeping stock on Ivan Barbashev, Jared McCann, Matt Mistele, and Conner Bleackley.
