Comparing this year's upcoming draft with next year's.

I'm curious about how 2013's prospect pool stacks up to 2012.

How would you rank the top 30 projected for each year if you had to rank them together?

For instance,
1. Mackinnon
2. Yakupov
3. etc
60.

Have fun!

They're thinking that.

1984 is the best all time IMHO. I'd rank 1989 ahead of 2003 too.

Didn't people say that about this draft last year? I think it's a bit early to say that

Actually they say that every year '' that it's gona be a great draft''. But I remember when it was during the draft 2011 or just before they said that 2012 would be better. But I remeber saying to my buddies that 2011 would be a better one and deeper then 2012.

2013 will be as good if not better then 2003. Like any draftee of the top 30 of 2013 could be a top 10 in this year draft. The only thing I'll admit is that this year is a deeper draft for D's but soo weak on fowards. Also I believe this year will be one of the best draft for goalies in the last decade or so.

About my top 10 for 2012 and 2013 it would be the following;

1st. Nathan MacKinnon
2nd.Seth Jones
3rd. Yakupov
4th. Sean Monahan
5th. Barkov
6th. Alex Galchenyuk
7th.Hunter Shinkaruk
8th.Grigorenko
9th.Murray / Dumba
10th.Filip Forsberg/Elias Lindholm

Everyone last year was saying the top end defense in this years draft would be amazing. Hardly seems to be the case. A lot can happen in a year

I don't think anyone last year would have taken Dougie Hamilton over Ryan Murray

I think theres a lot to like about the top end defense this year.

Murray, Trouba, Dumba alone are great.

25.Zachary Fucale
26.Teuvo Teravainen
27.Sebastian Collberg
28.Jonathan Drouin
29.Radek Faksa
30.Nick Sorensen

2013 is a lot better and might be the best since 2003 and 2012 is 1 of the weakest in years. 2013 has great depth and is definitely forward heavy, complete opposite of 2012.
2012's top 10 is solid, but gets weak after that, but 2013 there's like 15 star players i'd say and still good depth after.

Next year's draft is always better than the current year's draft.

Although this time, it's probably a legitimate claim.

We heard that the 2012 draft was one of the deepest since 03 and now it is all of a sudden a weak draft year.. Hard to say at this time but it looks very promising with many very high end guys in Jones, Shinkaruk, Mackinnon, Barkov and others.

Alexander Barkov - Big two-way center, 1st line potential
Elias Lindholm - Playmaking center(can play RW too), 1st line potential
Valeri Nichushkin - Big center with great speed and sniping abilities - 1st line potential
Rasmus Ristolainen - Big d-man who plays very physical and good offensively as well - top pairing d-man potential
