2018 vs 2017

Where would you rank guys like Wise, Svechnikov, Wahlstrom, Veleno etc. in relation to the 2017 draft class?

Almost all of those guys are early-birthdays. It is very hard to place any of them who only have minimal experience above minor-midget (or their countries equivelent quality). I would think if Veleno was in the draft he would be going 1st, and no later than 3rd. This is probably a better question to ask around February once we've seen enough games of these guys to really have an opinion. But, I'll say this, 2018 looks a hell of a lot more interesting and deep in the top 10.

I'll give you a hint. Posters will say the draft that is farther away is better than the closer draft - it happens almost every time. The truth is, no one knows because kids get better in their 18th year. Some grow 12 inches. Some kids, who looked like naturals at 15, disappoint when other kids catch up. Again, no one knows. Comparisons are silly. So is projecting 15 and 16 year old kids.
