2009 Draft - Redraft the Top 5

Not the 5 best players from the draft, but the players who were drafted in the top 5.
What would your draft order be at this point?


2009 Draft Order:
1. John Tavares
2. Victor Hedman
3. Matt Duchene
4. Evander Kane
5. Brayden Schenn


---------------------------------------

Part II

Now list the 5 best players from the entire draft. It will be interesting to compare the two top-5 lists.

I'd put Kane over Duchene, otherwise keep the order.

Same order. I'd maybe switch Kane and Duchene, but I think Duchene bounces back.

Surprised OEL isn't getting more love given some of the opinions from people around here.

I have him Top 3. Defiantly ahead of Schenn in my mind.

But this thread is just about changing the order of the Top 5 drafted.

Very tough call.

Tavares - clear # 1, I dont think theres much debate here
Schenn - clear # 5, again not much debate IMO

The others?

Hedman - yet to break out offensively. If he only becomes a pretty good defensive defenceman that puts up ~25-30 points? Then Kane/Duchene would definitely be higher. But if Hedman can break out offensively? Could merit that 2nd spot

Kane - I'm always hesitent to put a winger ahead of a centre. Centres are simply more important to a hockey team. But I love Kane's game. Really tough to distinguish between Kane and Duchene right now.

Duchene - had a down year. Not as physical as Kane, but offensively Duchene had two solid seasons before last year. Likely has a pretty high ceiling, but hard to predict. At this point I would probably put him ahead of Kane, but its close.

1- Tavares
2- Hedman
3- Duchene
4- Kane
5- Schenn

I hope that Schenn will be the player that he could be.

It's probably because the first sentence of the thread is; "Not the 5 best players from the draft, but the players who were drafted in the top 5."

I'd leave it the same. Maybe switch Kane and Duchene, but it's close.
