Lots of talented forwards with size, especially coming from the OHL.

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.

I'm no RNH fan, but he's the best defensively of those 3.

Lol this, how are either of those 2 players more well rounded than RNH? Defensively he reads the game very well and is very strong and efficient at pickpocketing on the back check.

As for Ekblad he doesn't have the same skating or explosiveness that Jones has offensively, but is better defensively. Imo the quality of his overall game is comparable to Jones.

For a second I thought you were laughing at me, only to go on to re-affirm what I'd said. I think Galchenyuk will be in the future, but right now, it's RNH.

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
