Way way way too early to rank the 2008 draft class compared to older classes. Speak to potential all you like, it's mostly just that...potential. Let's take a look in 3-4 years when you have a much better idea of what you actually have. Most teams are still looking at their 2008 draft and thinking they have a lot of potential there.
MDZ got off to a good start, but he has to significantly improve his defense. It was not good, but he's young and he has the POTENTIAL to improve in that area.
Marc Staal is by far the best player on this list. Hopefully not the only good one, but don't put any of those other guys in his category until they actually show they can perform like Staal does in the NHL.
