    I'm not asking you to select the best overall top 4, but rather to rank each individual player in terms of projected ceiling. This is, of course, making the assumption that the expected top 4 for this upcoming draft pans out predictably.

    Adam Larsson
    Gabriel Landeskog
    Sean Couturier
    Ryan Nugent-Hopkins
    Taylor Hall
    Tyler Seguin
    Eric Gudbranson
    Ryan Johansen
    John Tavares
    Victor Hedman
    Matt Duchene
    Evander kane
    Steve Stamkos
    Drew Doughty
    Zach Bogosian
    Alex Pietrangelo

    I would like to see 2008's thrown in there too. Stamkos, Doughty, Bogo and Petro if I remember correctly,

    I think the high end talent, like picks 1-2 wont have as high of ceiling as the previous years, but picks 3-4 are better than picks 3-4 in previous drafts.

    1. Drew Doughty
    2. Steven Stamkos
    3. John Tavares
    4. Taylor Hall
    5. Matt Duchene

    8. Sean Couturier
    9. Tyler Seguin
    10. Adam Larsson
    11. Alex Pietrangelo
    12. Gabriel Landeskog
    13. Evander Kane
    14. Zach Bogosian
    15. Erik Gudbranson
    16. Ryan Johansen

    I highly doubt Piet is last. The guy made EJ expendable this year with how great he has been.

    Pietrangelo has been beastly...in a couple years he and Doughty may be two of the three best d-men in the world.

    Hard to rank projected top 4 with some top fours that are already NHL superstars. It's like a statistical improbability that any of the guys drafted in 2011 and 2010 will even have a career year like Stamkos' sophmore season.

    Why would you throw 2008 drafted players when 2 of them have scored 50 goals / contended for a Norris? Makes no sense to compare them with unproven players..

    All I'm going to say is that anyone who does this, and does not have Alex Pietrangelo ranked at least top ten, or more accurately top five, is missing the boat.

    Period.

    Youve got to rank Stamkos #1, and Doughty, Duchene and Tavares need to be in the top five as well... but who else that's left has been better than Pietrangelo?

    Taylor Hall is more hype than production at present, and none of the 2011 potential top four have proven a blasted thing at the NHL level.

    Stamkos
    Doughty
    Duchene
    Tavares
    Pietrangelo
    Kane
    Hall
    Seguin

    The Rest

    Larsson over Petro is just wrong.

    Interesting tidbit on Petro. Ottawa head scout Pierre Dorion said today on radio in 2008 they had Petro on the same level as Doughty.

    Kane over Hall? You have to be kidding me? Have you actually watched him play this year, he's been getting better and better as the year goes on. He has a Stamkos breakout written all over him. Kane will be a nice player, but Hall is on a different planet. You are so sure about Pietrangelo being top 5 but no Hall, that just destroyed your arguments.

    Odd you say that Hall is more hype than production and rank Kane ahead of him. Hall is outproducing Kane this year and Kane is in his 2nd season. Kane's rookie season isn't even close.

    Tavares ranked low overall based on my concerns of his defensive play
    Omitted 2011 guys also, i cant rank undrafted guys against guys that have already played in the league
