The drop off lessens the farther into the draft you get.

    McDavid
    Matthews
    Draisaitl
    MacKinnon
    Kucherov
    Huberdeau
    Marchand
    Rantanen
    Makar
    M. Tkachuk
    Kaprizov
    Barkov
    Ovie
    Marner
    Gaudreau

    Here's a reasonable top-15.
    What you're looking at is Matthews/Drai and Marner/Gaudreau for Kuch/Hubs and Makar/Tkachuk. It's reasonable but I'll take the 2/14 slot every time. There's also a slight chance that #1 overall goes one of Matthews/Makar/Vas/Shesty and you end up with McDavid.

    Yeah he definitely should be. Just goes to show there's a lot more depth than there is quantity at the top.

    I think the value between 2 and 5 is more substantial than the value between 9 and 14 which isn't much difference at all. So I'd go with 2 and 14.

    If you get the chance to get the #2 overall pick you go out and get it. Having the opportunity to get a player like Matthews, Mackinnon, Draisaitl, or even Makar you don't pass that up. Even when you get down to pick #14 you are going to receive a quality player at that pick as well. Go with the #2 & #14 pick.
