Fasth.

Skjei could rocket up this list by midseason though.

Sure, add Hrivik.

Did you miss this: "Frankly, I'd take Skjei over him regardless."?

Even if Fast wasn't injured, I don't see how I could justify having him over Skjei.

You have to figure a young star in a top pro league beats out a late first rounder.

A late first has only about a 30-35% chance of cracking the NHL even as a bottom-feeder. Fast has a better shot of making it, as well as a better shot of being an impact player.

I agree - but I think you quoted the wrong poster.

Anyway what will be will be. More people wanted Thomas at 5 so that's where he is.
Fully agree, and because of the height, which is not likely to ever come, don't see how anyone can objectively disagree with what you said there.

But everyone is entitled to their opinion.
Best of luck to them both.
May we suffer an embarrassment of riches.

KHL is actually better tbh, but I'll take that .
