    4 years in a row it look like there will be elite left handed wing prospects all with similar size drafted high in the draft,with Elias Pettersson most likely being the lowest at 5th OA which is proving to be kind of mind boggling at this point.Rank the 4 as prospects.

    Not ranking them I'm just gonna say Kakko could play centre at the NHL level.

    Drafted at center, only played center in the NHL. Him being a wing prospect is news to me.

    Pettersson is playing at centre. Kakko could switch to centre. Comparison is not equal.

    Kakko and Pettersson have a chance at becoming elite centers in the NHL though. Well Pettersson pretty much already is a center in the NHL, but I see Kakko becoming a centre for sure in the NHL. Kid really does remind me of Matthews and Foppa.

    A team will take a shot at him 100%

    I hope it’s the habs, been following him for years, with how the NHL trending and how dedicated he is to the sport...
