It's not just you, but this is a much worse draft. Last year, all four of the top picks could have been taken first overall, and any of them could have been in the conversation for the top pick over the last few drafts. MacKinnon, Jones and Barkov also had a few years of hype leading up the draft. This draft, on the other hand, is much weaker at the top, so there aren't any big names to get excited about in the same way. There are a few guys in the conversation for first overall, but none of them would have gone higher than five last year.
