Well I chose my favorites. I'm sure you can argue several other players like Collberg/Severson/etc, but those are mine.

McCabe is the next big thing out of Wisco, I like his chance after wiscos recent suscess.

No player is a steal yet

I really like what Ive seen out of McCabe. He seems sturdy back there, doesn't look to have any under20 jitter moments. (plays like he is a lot older)

Which player(s) taken in the 2012 draft would you select higher today based on they've played over the course of the current season? I am mainly looking for the guys taken in the 2nd-7th rounds but late 1st round picks also would be acceptable.

Some rationale accompanying your player choices would also be very much appreciated

Thanks a bunch in advance and I look forward to hearing all of your responses
Seriously while I understand your intent here how can nay 2012 player be a steal for the NHL club that drafted him?

There are no 2nd rounders surprisingly playing in the NHL this year, just guys getting hyped up and then will be called busts in future threads.

I'm mean I'm sure NHL GM's are happy that some players are progressing better than expected but none are steals until they actually play and produce in the NHL right?

I would read the rest of the paragraph you are quoting to post a reply instead of posting an argument.

The title of the post I think is just an attention grabber.

Connor Brown's so good, his 15 year old linemate is PPG in the OHL!

I'm rooting for him but he hasn't done anything to be defined as a steal yet.

Wikstrand.

I was cringing that we didnt pick Charles Hudon.

Easily a bottom six scorer for that value.

I would say Makarov was the steal of the draft. It's early but he is worth a lot more then getting signed as a FA.

Tanner Richard (3rd Tampa) is playing great so far was 2nd in assists behind Ryan Strome in the OHL before the WJC

Riley Barber was a steal.

6th rounder and playing well with Galchenyuk on Team USA

McCabe has definitely impressed me at the WJC's. Without having watched much college hockey to make an actual comparison, a look at his stats indicate that he's about twice the offensive player McDonagh was at the same age, and he's been very solid defensively for the US. Too soon to call anybody a steal, but McCabe is looking like an astute pick right now, for sure.

I'll bite...

not quite top 10 but getting Filip Forsberg at 11 was pretty lucky for the Caps

From the Capitals, Christian Djoos was a 7th round pick and made the Sweden WJC team.

Daniil Zharkov @ 91 overall may be a steal.
Not much production at WJHC but he doesnt look out of place playing on the top line for Russia.

McCabe has really caught my attention over the WJC. But I think he still projects as a top 4 defensemen, which isn't that what a 2nd round pick should project as anyway?

Wisktrand would definitely be taken higher today than he was in 2012. How much higher is the question.

Going to sound like a huge homer, but Anton Zlobin (PIT - 6th round - 173rd overall).

I've seen him play in Halifax and thought he was exceptionally talented before I even realized he was a Pens pick. Was disappointed he got cut from Russia's WJC team because I felt it'd be a coming out party for Zlobin.
