If for arguements sake Zherdev was a year younger, where do you think he would go in the 2004 draft class? Obviously behind Ovechkin, but would any of the other prospects be considered "better prospects" ie. Barker, Olesz, Malkin etc? Im trying to get a read on the skill level of the 2004 class as compared to the 2003 class of players, as I for one think that Zherdev should have been if not the #1 overall (due to fleurys immediate success), but at the very least #2 overall due to his skill level alone. Thanking you all in advance for your opinions!
