    Seems like Kakko is playing like Matthews or Rantanen and Hughes like Patrick Kane. Kakko really has a good size, amazing speed and hockey iq as well so I think he could play already in NHL. Hughes could play also already even it's possible that he should develop one year because of the small size. But what do you think and which team would be the best for them?

    And btw I really think that its 50/50 which one gonna be nro 1 pick. Really depends of this coming spring and the team which will get the nro 1 pick. But honestly Kaapo Kakko has been better in this season. The thing is though, whos gonna be better in the future.

    Oilers will get them both but still manage to trade them for Lehtera and Maatta?

    Kakko in Colorado.

    Haha Imagine if Kakko, MacKinnon and Rantanen would play in the same team. Jesus it's unfair :D

    Hughes would be great in Arizona! But I hope Florida will get him as Jack is also from Florida. It would be awesome to play with Barkov

    I think it would be amazing for him and the Avs to have MacKinnon/Kakko as the 1/2 punch down the middle.

    Hughes to the Blues, because it rhymes and the Blues having an American-born player makes sense somehow (since they spent their last #1 pick on Erik Johnson).

    Kakko to the Kings, because Finland is like Iceland and Iceland wore Kings-esque black uniforms in D2: Mighty Ducks, and there's something about a blonde Scandinavian in all black that makes sense too.

    Yeah Canucks always need 2 brothers to success. Or if not Hughes then get another Granlund somehow.

    Hughes would be great for NYR.

    He'd be the primary guy who could be the catalyst for all of the great secondary players we are accumulating (Kravtsov, Miller, Andersson, Chytil, Howden, etc).

    The league does well when the Rangers have a big name on the team and are winning.

    And right now, with the rangers dead last in ROW, its very possible.

    Devils would be the obvious choice.

    Which top young players did they ruin?

    Hall? Eberle? Draisaitl? McDavid? Yakupov maybe?

    I actually want them to. It will be a good story in Vancouver to have another set of brothers leading the team.

    Ottawa could use the help. They are going to need to replace Duchene/Stone, and either one of these guys would be great for that organization.

    They are a developmental graveyard. Only Oilers fans think otherwise.

    Fit/style wise I would say Flyers, Vancouver, Colorado for Kakko.

    Though we've never seen high end kids in New York, which would be a change.

    The Florida Panthers needs something to not die within the next decade. The organization is on life support.
