Ok then, I want those three the most because they're leaps and bounds above the rest right now.

Marginally. Pretty shallow method to determine who the better player (as a matter of opinion) will be in the future.

The odds are that a young defenseman even makes it to where Subban, McDonagh, and OEL are now are extremely low.

HF in general puts too much stock in "upside," and doesn't realize that most prospects never hit their upside.

Adam Larsson has a real good chance of becoming a #1 D-Man. Hell it might even be 90%. That's cool. I'm still taking the guys who are already there.

Larsson, OEL and Subban (who narrowly beats out McDonagh). I'm really high on Larsson, I think he's the best defensemen to be drafted since 2008 and I think he's going to be a stud.

Aside from Karlsson, Pietro and Doughty, OEL is the only one on that list that i have seen that has it something, which separates the good players from awesome ones.
