    Kane on Hughes: He does a lot of things better than me

    https://www.nhl.com/news/jack-hughes...ft/c-307453174

    "I feel like when smaller players come into the League and they have that offensive-type game, it seems to be easy to compare them to a guy like me," said Kane, who is 5-foot-10, 170 pounds, but was 5-9, 160 at the 2007 NHL Scouting Combine. "But I think he does a lot of things better than me, to be honest with you.

    "He's always moving, always skating, and even if he's not near the puck or the action, he's still got his speed and he's coming into the zone or coming into the action with a lot of movement and speed."

    When was the last time anyone felt this fortunate to have the #2? Probably Tampa Bay when they took Hedman after Tavares went #1. Either way, they were getting a stud.

    Yup. I do think if the Rangers had the #1 pick, the tune around here and other Rangers fan message boards would be different though with regards to Hughes vs Kakko. To me, Hughes is and has been the best prospect for this draft class for 2-3 years. A few games in a tournament doesn't change that. Nothing against Kakko, but Hughes is the superior prospect and is elite in the types of things that make a player elite in today's NHL. That's not to say Kakko isn't a very high end prospect in his own right and has a chance to be better than Hughes, but it does feel like there's some sugar coating going on just because we are almost definitely getting Kakko instead.

    Yeah, or Taylor/Tyler.

    I guess 2015? Eichel was a solid "consolation" prize.

    There was never a question if McDavid was going first, though.
