Who are the best playmakers/passers in the 2017 draft? (Forwards only)
If my team takes a forward (preferably a center) this is the #1 element I'm looking for. Someone with exceptional vision and anticipation, someone who can set up their teammates and make those around them better.
What guys in this draft class do you think bring this to the table, or could in the future?
Nico Hischier will have no problem driving an NHL offense in a few years. Nik Popugayev also consistently creates offense although he's RW. Casey Mittelstadt is a good playmaker but is less of a sure thing than a lot of other guys projected to go high.
