VIDEO - Bob McKenzie's Mid-Season NHL Draft Ranking Show
He really seemingly dislikes Nylander... he has not been in any of his top rankings. Pretty much every other prospect scouting service or individual has Nylander ~6-9.
I think the top~ 20 is actually surprisingly stable and there will likely be few shocks:
1-3: Ekblad, Reinhart and Bennett.
4-12: Dal Colle, Perlini, Fleury, Nylander, Ritchie, McCann and Draisaitl.
8-25: Kapanen, Kempe, Karlsson, Ehlers, Barbashev, Virtanen, McKeown, Larkin, Bleackley and Honka.
That is 20 guys who will very likely go top 25... I just cannot see more than 1-2 falling past 20.
The only 'wildcards' who could seemingly jump ahead of those guys at the moment are DeAngelo, Tuch, Milano, Martin, Schmaltz, Ho-Sang and Pastrnak... and even then they are not exactly wildcards. Of course at draft time there will be a few left field guys... but there is a pretty good consensus on most.
There has just been so little rankings movement so far... usually there are massive fallers and big risers... there really have not been so far.
