I think this draft is underrated too. I think people will see how good is this draft later in this years whit the season those kids will have an all the tournement they will do. Scout will start talking about them whit hype later in the year. I compare this draft whit the 2011 too.
To be perfectly honest, I know RNH has a ton of skill and COULD be the best player in his draft.... But so far I like Galchenyuk and Huberdeau more. I think they'll play a much more rounded game while putting up similar numbers.
I'm no RNH fan, but he's the best defensively of those 3.
At the time of their draft vs how the current top guys look:
Reinhart is Jonathan Huberdeau or Alex Galchenyuk level but not RNH level. Ekblad is Adam Larsson or Griffin Reinhart level but not Seth Jones level. Nylander is Ryan Strome or Sean Monahan level but not Jonathan Drouin level.
There is no traditional #1 overall pick this year in terms of talent level/projection. There are also only two top 3 talents and only 3 top 5 talents. After that there is a regular amount of talent.
It's kind of like if you took the 2011 draft and plucked out RNH and Landeskog or the 2013 draft without Mackinnon and Jones.
PS: This isn't a knock on any player... it's just a "weak" draft for top end talent. And no I'm not one of those guys who says that every year.
You guys dont know **** honestly, nobody know... we will all know if that was a good draft in 5 years, stop acting like ''uhh its similar to 2011' thinking ur Trevor Timmins rofl
