Bender and I both had him fairly high if I remember correctly, he reminds me a lot of Aho 2.0 even if he doesn't possess all the dynamic talent that Aho has. Still a fantastic player though. You want to know who has a crazy record? Look at the San Jose Sharks drafted team. They have more 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th rounders on their team than 1st rounders that they drafted. They have to be one of the worst 1st round and best 7th round drafting teams ever seen in any sports. It is simply crazy and it seems they got another fantastic sixth rounder in Chmelevski. Not only that, but their other 7th rounder Blichfield currently leads the WHL in points. Just look for yourself here... Elite Prospects - Players drafted by San Jose Sharks That tells me their regional scouts are simply unbelievable while their head scout/GM is terrible. If they were able to hit some of their 1st rounds like Rantanen over Meier along with others, we're seeing a Detroit Red Wings type of empire here. Not saying they would've won Cups, but would've been able to stay competitive for decades'. Love him and he's a genuine centre which Kakko ultimately couldn't accomplish (doesn't mean he's bad, but should be a winger in the NHL). Easily top 5 along with Lafreniere, Byfield, Rossi, and Gunler. Finland has another pretty good one for next year too in Simontaival, however, 2020 is Sweden's time to shine with the triple headed-monster in Gunler, Holtz, and Raymond. There could be a good chance that all three could find themselves in the top 10 when everything is said and done. This Finland's team would've single-handily smoked out this competition if they had their two NHLers too. Not sure if it was "their year", there really wasn't one standout nation and showed that it was a dud in terms of overall talent. Don't get me wrong because there was some fantastic underager talent, but holy smokes the 1999 year wasn't very good except for Russia (who lost due to depth).
