    Only looking at the points you think these guys can put up in the NHL who has the most upside, how would you rank the top 10-20 of this draft year?

    Not looking at their draft stock at all, like guys like Larsson and Landeskog are looking to be top prospects because of leadership qualities, ability to penalty kill or play in all scenarios and other intangibles.
    But looking solely at offensive potential how would you rank them all?

    Offensively I would say the top 5 would be
    RNH
    Coutierer
    Landeskog
    Strome
    Huberdeau

    I could see someone like Khokhlachev in the top 10 of this kind of ranking.

    Tell me what you think about Wruck? I've only seen him a couple of times but he was dynamite both times.

    Little spark plug. Almost like a Jordan Weal or even Marty St. Louis to him.

    Think he has pro potential despite his 5'8-5'9 frame?

    They call Wruck "Wreck" as in wrecking ball.

    Plays bigger than his size.......can he in pro?

    Reminds me abit of Versteeg.

    Yeah, I like him too.

    If I was going to make a list of top 10, Rocco would be on it.

    Flaming & Millard at The Pipeline Show (who are excellent) have alot of info re Wruck.

    If you open this and scroll down on the right hand side you will see a list in blue (alpha) of all players they have featured.
    There are 11 Wruck articles....

    M. Bugg of McKeens has also seen alot of Dylan and likely has some insight.

    1 - Landeskog
    2 - Couturier
    3 - Strome
    4 - Huberdeau
    5 - RNH

    I think that Lando and Couts will have similar point totals, but Lando will score more goals.

    Look at Brad Marchand on the Bruins. the kid is playing great at the NHL level, and I think Wruck would have a similar impact.

    Even though I am a big WHL guy, I like Puempel more.
