Also, because I have seen more of Erne live and not Zykov yet. I really like his powerforward style and north-south mentality of Erne.
I suppose that's fair.
If you have not or can not see a player, I'd suggest trying to collect as much information as possible and finding your own balance in what to believe, rather then just going with a single source, otherwise you're not really developing your own opinion, you're just repeating someone else.
I'm not sure about the specific selections for the Sharks, but I can definitely understand Zykov over Erne. I also understand Duclair not being a first round pick.
Why do you feel Erne would be selected before Zykov?
Because Erne is a much more well-rounded player. He's much more of a Sharks pick. But I also like his upside and see it translating well. I do think that Zykov will be a first rounder, but I just don't see him quite so high, nor the Sharks picking him.
As for Duclair, I'm fairly high on him, so it could just be me.
