2014 draft top ten?

I knows it is a bit early but does anyone care to rank a top 10 list for the 2014 draft (from a fantasy perspective)? Any additional info or player comparisons/profiles would be welcome as well!

Thanks

McDavid, Ekblad, and Barzal are favorites to be #1.

He won't compete with the above three, but I'd throw Nick Ritchie's name in as a potential top 10 pick.

With his size and late birthday, I'd bet he has a good chance of being one of the most NHL ready forwards.

Barzal and McDavid are 2015.

Anyone know anything on Patrik Koys from Slovakia? I remember he was highly touted a couple years ago.

He's not what some were hyping him up as.

But that said, he's still a really strong prospect, saying he's the best from Slovakia in about a decade doesn't seem like much of a stretch.

Doubt he'd go #1, he's probably safely behind Ekblad, Ho-Sang, and Virtanen at this point.

I think Sam Reinhart goes first overall. Kid has unreal talent.

You're right, my bad got mixed up. Koys is considered by some to be the best Slovakian prospect since Gaborik.

I really like Ekblad, Reinhart and Ho-Sang.

The Swedish 96-agegroup looks really strong, much stronger than the 95 group. Watch out for players like William Nylander, Anton Karlsson, Oskar Lindblom, and Marcus Pettersson among many others in the 2014 draft. Lots of late born 96 players as well, Petter Mäkitalo and Rasmus Andersson have posted incredible numbers for their age. Then there is Fredrik Forsberg, Filips little brother who is also very talented.

I'll throw out Robbert Fabbri, Roland Mckeown, and Anthony Deangelo as potential first rounders.

Carrier is 2015 eligible as he was born in October. So is Loïk Léveillé. This sure does not look like a great year for the Q.

I believe Hawryluk went in the second round of the WHL bantam draft. Granted he still has time to catch up but I don't think he is the player that people were hyping him up to be at age 11.

Also, thanks for those who gave insight on Koys. It will be interesting to see how he progresses over the next couple years.

I should have known that and really looked at the depth of his birthdate...but that was my bad.

Thanks, I always appreciate sharing your work. I was very impressed by Point in the one game I saw of him, just a fearless player.

Really not that big of a fan of Ho-Sang.

Talent is undeniable, just question his ability to translate into a top of the line NHL player.

Also, thanks for those who gave insight on Koys. It will be interesting to see how he progresses over the next couple years.
He went 2nd round because of his size and people thought his point production might be due to playing for Russell in a poor league. Well, he's already up to 180 lbs, and anyone who saw him play for a poor Parkland team in AAA last season will know he is an amazing looking player, combo of Schenn/Calvert, the points he put up last season and the style of play were startling.
He's my pick to surprise in the 2014 draft, I know he's not a name that many people saw play last year so thats probably why not many people will agree with me at present. Time will tell though!
