Hischier or Patrick was an option.

But no one had Kakko over Hughes. That was just media hype.

Yeah I thought the Devils were going to pick Patrick but I'm glad they took Nico.

Agreed. Media just wanted to build up drama

Read the description. I said they weren't bad and I actually think Kaako is underrated. But Hughes was the better pick

That whole top 5 in 2017 was stacked. Nico, Patrick, Heiskanen, Makar, Pettersson

I would be fine with either but I would prefer Hughes since centers are more valuable and he has more upside.

Its still way too early to call a clear winner but both will be great for sure

We take a Mulligan on that one. At least we got a second out of it and turned it into Cuylle who might be something.
