    If you only knew how bad Okposo is....

    Edit: Eichel's wingers are really bad though.

    Aho too low. Switch him with Provorov and it's better.

    I guess that’s fair considering who Rantanen plays with but the line mates argument is a bit overrated. Yes better players help stats a bit but it’s not that huge of a difference.

    And skinner isn’t exactly a scrub.

    Eye test mostly. The players I have seen the least of are Rantanen and Hanafin so I might have underrated them a spot or maybe two.

    McDavid
    Eichel/Barzal/Rantanen (idgaf order them however)
    Provorov/Aho/Marner/Werenski
    Boeser/Connor/Chabot

    If you told me I absolutely had to give an ordered top 10 right now:

    1. McDavid
    2. Barzal (homer vote, like I said these guys are interchangeable)
    3. Eichel
    4. Rantanen
    5. Aho
    6. Provorov
    7. Marner
    8. Werenski
    9. Boeser
    10. Connor
    Super-honrable mention: Chabot and Meier, who deserve to be top 10 but this draft is stacked.

    The funny thing is, in every Eichel debate its never why he's better all you hear from people defending Eichel is a bunch of excuses as to why he cant play as well as Matthews, Barzal etc. Just found that funny. If Matthews can perform at a high level with Hyman and Brown im pretty sure Eichel could do damage with Skinner/Reinahrt/oKPOSO.

    It will be interesting to compare this down the road. The 2003 draft started great and then guys fizzled out

    Aho should also be right up there with Rantanen, Eichel, and Barzal. Certainly ahead of Werenski and Provorov, who both look a little off so far this year.

    Provorov is #2 for me. People love the points now, but I want the stud defenseman. I'll take the Hedman of this draft.

    Dang, the top 11 of this draft was insane. 1 generational center, multiple elite 1Cs, 3 top-pairing defensemen, an elite winger, and multiple additional first-line wingers.

    How many points would Rantanen have playing on a line with Jacob De La Rose and Tom Pyatt?

    This draft was hecking insane, my mans. Lots of elite talent, but the depth is amazing as well. Just look at this:

    NHL-players so far: McDavid, Eichel, Marner, Hanifin, Zacha, Provorov, Werenski, Meier, Rantanen, Crouse, DeBrusk, Barzal, Connor, Chabot, Eriksson Ek, Boeser, Konecny, Roslovic, Juulsen, Beauvillier, Fischer, Dermott, Aho, Carlo, Dunn, Malgin, Nutivaara.

    And out of these guys, 90% will make a career in the NHL: Strome, Guryanov, Svechnikov, White, Samsonov, Larsson, Carlsson, Merkley, Stephens, Meloche, Forsbacka Karlsson, Sprong, Chlapik, Hintz, Greenway, Guhle, Andersson, Trenin, Kylington, Dergachyov, Spacek, Joseph, Kaprizov, Simon, Jaros, Gaudette, Gavrikov, Mangiapane, Niku.

    Also there's guys like Trenin, Bracco, Zboril, Senyshyn, Bittner, Cernak, Siegenthaler, Saarijarvi, Saarela, Garland, Bear, Timashov, Mikkola, Balcers, Musil, Roy and Looke who could be something some day.

    One of the best drafts ever. So many potential HHOF candidates. You got the elite stars, 2nd line wingers, middle-6 guys, bottom-6 guys, elite D-men, #3D's... I could build a team with these guys in a couple of years and fit it under the salary cap.
