In context, Matthews and McDavid were drafted the two previous drafts. They were going to be impactful players always, but not generational players. I think that’s still fair to say about Hischier (who I love). Hughes? There are nights he looks like the best player in the NHL. Hischier was compared to as a cross geteeen Datsyuk offensively and Zetterberg/Toews defensively. He started the draft projects at the end of the first and shot up… We had to decide to skip over the safe pick of Nolan Patrick to do so. Hughes was compared to Kane (who himself thought Hughes was better than him). That time we had to stay steadfast and NOT select the riser in Kakko… glad we did both. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
