    That's the scuttlebutt according to Bob McKenzie on twitter

    Is this a big surprise? Or inevitable?

    A surprise, but not a shock. Landeskog looked very good before getting injured the WJC and is likely the safest bet in the draft. I still think several players have a higher upside offensively, but I'd have a tough time passing on Landeskog just the same. Will be a 20 goal-50 point character player worst case. Best case, he could be 30-40 goal scoring captain. Tough to pass on that.

    Not overly shocking and I still don't really agree with it. Like others say, I think there are a couple other players that have higher potential than him.

    Not a surprise to me at all. He definitely doesn't have the highest offensive upside in this draft, but with his leadership and intangibles, I think he is the most likely to lead his team to a Stanley Cup.

    Of course, MacKenzie is now saying he has heard from another source that Couterier is #1 in NA. We will find out very shortly one way or the other.

    Strome at #19 is a surprise.

    Maybe they see him similar to Toews, little less upside but a safe bet.

    Seems this list based more on play than potential because Strome at 19 would be a absolutely mega steal.

    If the Isles really want Landeskog to play with Tavares, is a draft day deal (assuming the Devils get 1st overall) of our 1st for their 1st and 3rd work?

    rnh

    You're jumping the gun. The Oilers are going to win the draft lottery. :nod: Landeskog will still be available at 2nd though, hopefully we're taking Larsson.

    That was my first thought as well. Guys like St. Croix at 36 is probably because they started compiling this list well before he started his big tear recently...?

    Then again, I am not sure the cut-off date exactly...not sure about Biggs and Huberdeau that high, but they are obviously both very talented players

    Huberdeau #4 = Perfect spot for him.

    Like I said, assuming we get 1st. Hell I can see us playing ourselves outta the lottery.

    Seems that way...with all these players so close (assuming it stays that way), teams will draft by need...doubt the Oilers would take Landeskog, doubt Boston would take another centre, etc.
     
  19. Too early to tell. Right now, come draft day, it would be hard to tell who goes 1st overall. Nearing the end of the season and getting closer to the draft I think it will be a bit more clear. And if the Islanders do want Landeskog and he's projected to go 1st they might try to swing a deal, or hope that the Devils select a defenseman.

    Add Huberdeau. As of now, he could turn out with much more offensive upside than Couturier. Could out rank RNH at the end of the year. It takes only one GM to like him more than the guys above, and he'll turn out 1st overall..this guy is gonna finish the Q with more than 100 pts.

    Exactly. If the bottom three looks like it is now, each team could get the best piece for them.

    New Jersey - Courtier
    Edmonton - Larsson/Nugent-Hopkins
    Islanders - Landeskog/Larsson

    Islander fan here. I'm not too familar with him, but since you seem to be a big fan of his. Can I get a brief scouting report. Strengths? Weaknesses?

    That wouldn't make much sense either considering Strome has more production than anyone ranked ahead of him.

    Landeskog not a surprise. He is terrific.

    Gibbs? Wuuut. Bärtschi really high...

    Victor Rask dropped to 9th Europea skater this was what I really expected.
