You never know what will happen in a draft but it seems pretty safe to assume that McDavid, Eichel, Hanifin, and Strome will go in the top 5 and Marner likely will as well.

So in looking at the next crop of 5 prospects who are they and what would be their biggest strength and biggest weakness.

Ivan Provorov
Zach Werenski
Lawson Crouse
Mikko Rantanen
Mathew Barzal
Pavel Zacha
Kyle Connor
Timo Meier

Is there even a fairly reliable tier of 4 or 5 players after the top 5 or does it get very murky after that?

Provorov, Barzal, Crouse, Werenski, and Zacha for me, though Rantanen is also a really interesting prospect.

If there is one guy outside of the top 5 to break in who would it be - and for what team.

It is easy to say BPA - but start putting names to teams - makes it hard to unseat a top 5 guy.

Provorov and Crouse both have a chance to break in. Crouse has been ranked in the top-5 by some scouting services that I've seen.

probably one of the D and carolina.

If toronto selects Strome, i doubt carolina will want to go with marner. The better option may be to trade down.

What does that even mean in this context?

Whoever picks 3rd gets to decide who goes 3rd. Who cares who the other 29 teams have at 3?

As a Flyers fan, I'd be happy with any of the names being thrown around. Adding another D prospect to the 4 very good ones we have already (Morin, Ghost, Sanheim, Hagg) would either give us an incredible D in a few years or another asset that we can use to improve another area. Adding a forward will boost the 2nd line which struggles at even strength to produce consistently.

It's all good either way!

My personal list would have (in no particular order): Barzal, Provorov, Werenski, Rantanen, and Crouse.

Hanifin isn't a lock as consensus, Provorov and Werenski both have solid arguments to be ranked above him.

Hanifin/Werenski/Rantanen/Connor/Barzel is how I rank them. Provorov is better then Hanifin and I'm not a fan a Crouse.

I see that as the 3rd group and I have 7 in it. No order to my groupings. Completely depends on team and preference on how the groups break down imo. Easier in my head to do it like that then try and rank a consensus spot for each player

1st group: McDavid, Eichel
2nd group: Strome, Marner, Hanifin
3rd group: Crouse, Barzal, Provorov, Werenski, Connor, Rantanen, Zacha

why are people freaking out if Hanifan is not ranked 3rd? I don't get it, I've never seen a fan base so sensitive about a players ranking. Odds are not even in favor of him getting drafted by your favorite team anyways, so if he goes 5th are you guys going to punch your monitor out or something? holy cow.

Nobody is sensitive, were just pointing out that it is incorrect to claim that he isn't a consensus top 5 pick when virtually every list besides Craig Buttons (which many people were quick to point out isn't a mock draft) has him as at least a top 5 pick.
