This year's draft if you could take anyone All-time

I am sick of seemingly 12 year old posters saying Gretzky couldn't get 120 points today, or Ovechkin would get 200 goals if he played in the 80's,70's,60's.... whatever.

So this being different than drafting the all time best players in the ATD based on what they actually did....

Pretend ALL players are 18 years old... have 2 or 3 seasons in a good CHL program or a good overseas program and you can draft anyone.... considering they would still be the same height and stuff but subject to the same training and so on as today's draftee's. Who would you pick if you you knew you could essentially keep the player for life. And don't look only at what the player had done to age 18.. or their hype as a youngster... pick the player you would pick right now if he was fullly scouted and 18 years old and you would basically get him and keep him on your team. Think of how they would do in today's NHL.

The first few of mine :
Bobby Hull
Ovechkin (yeah he is THAT good)
