    At this point is there a consensus? From what I've seen it's Johnson, Kessel, Toews, Staal, and Backstrom in some order or another. Do most agree with this?

    I'd call it a consensus top 4 with Johnson, Kessel, Toews and Staal. But even then I am reluctant.

    Last year we thought there was a consensus top 6 of Crosby, Johnson, Ryan, Brule, Pouliot and Kopitar but we all know how that turned out.

    Where was Brian Lee and Luc Bourden ranked in ISS or RedLine or Youngguns? Just out of curiousity. Was Marc Staal ranked higher then these two?

    If so it shows that rankings dont really matter at least for the upper 10-20

    Usually the picks 1-5 can be mixed(well sometimes, last year it was 2-6) but they are usually always going to be in the top 5 or 6

    Id say that is the most commom but certainly not a consensus. Brassard is in there for at least a couple teams (CBJ, PHI), in a recent Bob MacKenzie column:
    In the same article he goes on to say the top 4 of Johnson, Kessel, Toews and Staal were the top 4 by all scouts they surveyed.

    I would say that there is only a consensus top 4 right now. This consists of Johnson, Kessel, Toews, and Staal.

    I can tell you that Bourdon was the #6 ranked skater by CSB.
