Domi has 109 points in 185 NHL games at 22.

Strome and Crouse are 20.

Smoke LESS meth . I’ll get Rosie to adjust your dose
And Domi one punched Kesler!

Strome was a top 3 pick, and a highly touted one at that. He’s currently busting.

Who cares about Crouse.
Strome has 40 points in 25 games in his first season in the AHL. Little soon to call him a bust just yet. Sur Sure has been slow to adjust to the NHL but I wouldn’t write him off just yet. Then again the clown who rails on about him every day has also called Nathan Mackinnon and John Tavares busts/washed up repeatedly. Crouse at 20 years d is blowing away what Virtanen did at 20 in the AHL. Too soon to judge Virtanen but Crouse is a bust. The guys hypocrisy has knows no bounds.
Well said lack of bounds is nothing new round these parts. Lol.

Reid Boucher has 34 points in the AHL, what's your point?

Nolan Patrick - 2 goals 6 assists
Nico Hischier - 8 goals 19 assists

As Meds says - "Draft North Americans only"
8 of the 9 rookies ahead of Hischier say hi. :P
From Hischiers draft class?

The funny thing is that Petterson is the best pick of 2017 but it’s too soon to judge the 2014 draft. The mental gymnastics that our spandex clad friend will perform for us all is outstanding.

Speaking of Pettersen he ripped a beauty goal today!

Listen Bubbka we all know you pitch tents for the Stromes, he will have a similar career to the career his brother is having which us, um, not so good. Eberle says hi, Chiarelli doesn't.

2014 draft, I think there's still hope for Sam Reinhart, I mean he still has more goals than the beloved W. Nylander, 33 points behind Ehlers, if you can get SR for an affordable price could be a helluva pickup, but don't know if we need him now that we have Horvat, Pettersson, Gaudette, Lind who all can play center.

Jake Virtanen has 45 less games played than Nick Ritchie, and is 6 goals behind him, I still think big homie best days are ahead of him yet, TG keeps harping Virtanens' best games where he dominates could be when he's 24 - in a few years of growing natural man muscles.

Bertuzzi started his dominance in his sixth NHL season when he was 24 years of age I believe -- he exploded on the scene as a rookie with 18g, but then had 4 very below average years, scoring 10, 7, 6, 8 goals in consecutive seasons.

Seeing to much Griffin in Sam Reinhart. I wouldn't chance it

Nick Ritchie - 3 goals 8 assists
Sam Bennett - 6 goals 11 assists
Jared McCann - 5 goals 6 assists
Sam Reinhart - 7 goals 6 assists
Jake Virtanen - 6 goals 4 assists
Michael Dal Colle - 0 goals 0 assists

Still Reinhart has 103 points in 211 games avg almost .5 points a game, he's best on the powerplay naturally, I'm gonna guess Sabres - Phil Housley as their new head coach might have been detrimental for SR's game this season, Sam is the good buy low option this season.

Meds wants to know if you are drafting any of those 6 Canadians whose 2017-18 stats I posted above ahead of their draft class mates, Euros - Draisaitl, Pastrnak, Nylander and Ehlers?

The only iffy one is Nylander.
2014 re-draft:

Ekblad
Draisaitl
Pastrnak
Ehlers
Larkin
Nylander better passer/assists OR Reinhart better shot/goals...Nylander got a lot of assists iirc with Matthews early on.

As an aside...Tryamkin when he makes his TRYumphant return, could be the 2nd best dman this draft, the potential is insane.

In due time, SKYO I believe Tryamkin will be the best D man of the 2014 Draft Class. At the least he should have gone top 5 in 2014

So you're including KHL players and their KHL careers in your assessment of this?
