How is the first post you quoted relevant. If some guy was drafted 7th overall and the other guy 39th, who would you expect to be better and already in the NHL? Loooooooooool. Man said irrelevant. Also, it's not speculation. Ottawa TOLD HIM he is guaranteed a 3rd line spot to begin with. Also, look at what the Habs fan said and others, he was very strong in his debut in the playoffs proving that he is NHL ready and more than capable for it.
This thread is not about performance relative to draft position, this thread is about who is the better prospect. Kadri should not be graded on a harder scale because he was drafted earlier, that makes no sense.

And yes, it is speculation that Silfverberg would be an NHL regular. Prospects are given roster spots on teams all the time and either not able to live up to expectations or it is deemed that their development would be better served elsewhere. Not sure what's so hard to understand about that. Ottawa coaches said Silfverberg would get a spot on the lineup? Cool, that same compliment has been awarded to Kadri every single time he has been called up, so I'm not sure how that's a pro-Silfverberg argument.

2010 Jeff Skinner 7th overall - Brett Bulmer 39th overall
2009 Nazem Kadri 7th overall - Jakub Silfverberg 39th overall
2008 Colin Wilson 7th overall - Eric O'Dell 39th overall
2007 Jakub Voracek 7th overall - Simon Hjarlmarsson 39th overall
2006 Kyle Okposo 7th overall - Andreas Nodl 39th overall
2005 Jack Skille 7th overall - Petr Kalus 39th overall
2004 Rostislav Olesz 7th overall - Jordan Smith 39th overall
2003 Ryan Suter 7th overall - Tim Ramholt 39th overall

You should be able to see the pattern.

Last I checked this thread was about who was the better prospect, not who was the better draft pick. So yes, draft position is irrelevant.

However, if you want to oversimplify things... I guess Kadri AINEC because look at how much better all of those 7th overall picks are. You should be able to see the pattern.

My point was top picks typically make the NHL before mid 2nd rounders. Not to mention most top picks make the NHL by now.
Thats the sad thing, it should be Kadri AINEC going by history but instead its Silfverberg thats the better prospect.
