    What year do you think had the best combined no 1 and 2 picks? And also how would you rank them?

    Went with the 15 draft, hoping time will justify it.

    I probably homered out with a McD and Eichel vote.

    Ovechkin and Malkin definitely have a case for best 1-2 ever.

    Ryan sinks Crosby.

    Gotta go with 04. I'm skeptical of any of the others having careers like those 2 have had. McDavid is the only player I see having a career like that and is in that tier. Eichel just isn't there for me.

    How do you leave out the 1997 draft? Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau!?

    It's a good one for sure, but not a winner here. Should have been included though.

    Ovi and Malkin so far. McDavid and Eichel could match them if Eichel becomes what he was thought to be on draft day.

    OV and Malkin win, but Thornton and Marleau are an easy second in my book when considering this list.

    Eichel unfortunately is too weak. Ovechkin and Malkin for now.

    Is this a serious question? I'd say the only logical answer would be the one that contains 2 of the 3 best players of this generation. Until Eichel can prove he can even be a top 10 player in the league for an extended period of time or until Matthews and Laine can become the 2nd and 3rd best players in the NHL, this is an obvious answer.

    I don't think they are. Thornton is a first ballot Hall of Fame. Marleau is the odd man out. I expect 2015 to pass them. Wouldn't be shocked if 2016 does too. Crosby and Ryan might be argued ahead too. Stammer and Doughty too. Definitely not an easy #2. #2? Possibly, depending on preference. But I wouldn't pick them.

    Ovie-Malkin, AINEC at this point in time either.

    Hindsight might change this answer once we know how some of the younger guys pan out, but right now it's not even debatable. The only acceptable choice here is OV/Malkin.

    I can't see a justification for voting for any year except 2004 at this point. It could change in the future. Right now, there is only one possible right answer.

    Re-do the poll with the rest vying for second. That would be interesting.

    Gotta go with Ovy/Malkin. McDavid/Eichel or Matthews/Laine could challenge but right now you have to go with 2004.

    I had to think twice when making my choice but not surprised 2004 is leading by a significant margin.
