This is just #1, when you get into the top 5, everybody is different. It really is a crap shoot

Usually there is 1 definite #1 or 2 of them. I don't ever reminder there being 4 different options</div></div>

Personally I see the draft rankings as such a crap shoot there’s gonna be a lot of unnecessary criticism in the future.

Safe Picks Inside the Top 10:
-Hughes (won’t be your top pair guy imo, but should be top 4)
-Beniers (safe 2C potential I’d say)
-Powers (better than Hughes imo but not by a mile)
These guys can outplay their “safe” potential but I’d say there’s not much more beneath the surfaces, you’ll get a good player but not a dynamite pick compared to others.

Risky Picks Inside the Top 10:
-Kent Johnson (super flashy but a boom or bust imo)
-Wallstedt (every goalie this early but Jesper is damn good)
-Clarke (boom or bust)
-Lysell (boom or bust)
These guys are either gonna be “okay”/ busts. But if they hit theyre gonna hit big. Lysell and Johnson have the flash to be dynamic top 6 elite players imo. Clarke can be your explosive puck mover twd/ OFD. Wallstedt I love; I think whoever gets him is getting a goalie that’s more valuable than Knight, or Hart (yes hart has nhl experience and kinda stumbled this year) but I think Wallstedt is the real deal for a starter.

Solid top 10 picks but not top 3:
-Guenther (top 6 scorer)
-Eklund (top 6 C)
-Lucius (flashy top 6 guy)
-Evindsson (DFD, shutdown guy)
Guenther, top 6 guy who could hit and be a steal. Eklund is a great top 6 option as well. Lucius I’ll say the same lol but I think he can hit as well. Evindsson will be like your prime Vlasic top 4 DFD but he could flounder and just be a bottom pair good DFD.

These 11 guys all should go in the top 10, but it’s so up in their air Guenther could go at 9 and be the best guy in the draft class. Or a guy like Sillinger who’s likely 11-19 could be. You could draft powers at 1 or 4, and Clarke could go top 3 or top 9. And Clarke and Evindsson will go after Powers and Hughes most likely but each could become better. Or you could see Beniers go as the highest C draft, but Johnson easily could put perform him.

I just read this article so plz disregard everything I previously said. Regardless of what happened behind the scenes, it appears there was a rift developing between ownership and the front office all season. What I don't understand is why Dolan would grow impatient with the rebuild so soon? The Knicks have been terrible for 20 years. I thought the Rangers were on the right track and everyone agreed with that.</div></div>

Not only were they on the right track, they were rebuilding in record speeds and with massive promise
