Quote from: Nik on January 02, 2022, 12:05:56 PMThis isn't maybe a real scientific thing here but does anyone else sort of feel like we're in a bit of a low point in terms of talent coming into the league? Like, obviously there haven't been any McDavid types in the last five years but beyond that it feels like we've gotten more busts/disappointments towards the top of the draft than we usually do? Obviously anyone drafted in the last 5 years is young and still has time for their career to take off but it just feels like there's not a ton of young players to be really excited about right now.

In fact most have been pedestrian except for maybe Cale Makar and a couple others. Kappo Kakko, Jack Hughes, Lafreniere, Hischier, Nolan Patrick, Kotkaniemi, Dahlin. They're not bad players but they're not looking like extra special talents out there, even accounting for them not having to be at Matthews/McDavid level. You wonder if Nylander goes top 3 in many of the recent years' drafts.
