    Look at all these players already... Nutivaara, Malgin, Cirelli, Dunn, Carlo, Aho, Fischer, Beauvillier, Roslovic, Konecny, Boeser, Eriksson Ek, Chabot, Connor, Barzal, DeBrusk, Rantanen, Meier, Werenski, Provorov, Zacha, Hanifin, Marner, Strome, Eichel and Connor McJesus

    Personally I don't know any better draft class and it's only 3 years!

    My top5 at the moment:

    Connor McJesus
    Ranty the bull
    Aho the professor
    Yichel
    Big Z

    Mix and match them any you want and I probably forgot 1 or 2, but:

    Aho-McDavid-Rantanen
    Connor-Barzal-Marner
    DeBrusk-Eichel-Boeser
    Beauvillier-Konecny-Meier
    Zacha

    Provorov-Werenski
    Hanifin-Carlo
    Chabot-Dermott
    Nutivarra


    As for top 5? no idea. It's McDavid then pick and choose 4 more.

    2003 and 1979 both say hi.

    1979 - Bourque, Messier, Gartner, Propp, Hunter, Broten, Carbonneau, Anderson, and if not for the WHA could've had Gretzky

    also 1983 was loaded: Yzerman, Hasek, LaFontaine, Neely, Tikkanen, Tocchet, Fetisov, Makarov

    team of just 2003 draftees (some are out of position because there were a million centers)

    Pavelski - Bergeron - Perry
    Parise - Getzlaf - Eriksson
    Carter - Backes - Staal
    Horton - Kessler - Vanek

    Weber - Sutter
    Burns - Buff
    Seabrook - Enstrom

    It’s way way way to early to tell. There’s going to be some guys that fall off way sooner than you expect.

    Think Rick Nash or Mike Richards.

    The 2003 vs 2015 all star teams are just so incredible.

    I think 15 will be better than 03. The others will be difficult to top. It’d go a long way if Eichel ends up living up to the hype.

    1) McDavid
    2) Barzal
    3) Eichel
    4) Aho (keep it up as a center and he's #2 by years end)
    5) Rantanen

    Hm to Marner and Werenski

    Pretty much this. Might swap Marner for Rantanen but that's debatable.
