Hughes is the most dynamic offensive Dman in the draft. Like hands ******* down.  All 'Bore"chard has over Hughes is size, strength, and facial stubble. But guess what? Once he starts playing against men his true vanilla will be coned for all to lick. Book it. 

 

I'm a Hughes guy now

I like Hughes quite a bit, but I'll take the guy who's capable of scoring at this point in time over Hughes' assists. You conveniently left out that Bouchard, aside from his sick stubble, can actually score a goal too.

I'll take a guy who can, if he reaches his upside, dominate the entire flow of a game with skating and possession over a big strong OHLer who can make an outlet pass and is "pretty good" at a bunch of stuff. Bouchard will NEVER get to the level that Hughes can.

You and Holland only like Hughes cause he went to Michigan

So, can anyone name an undersized defenseman who is a legit 1d in the NHL?

Erik Karlsson comes to mind.

You're also trying to beg a question under the pretense that anyone other than Dahlin will be a #1D. When in reality the ceiling for most of the top ten picks is "first pair D".

Cool. So 50/50. 

Except that Bouchard is better. 

I'd say 33.3 / 33.3 / 33.3 who is taken first between Hughes / Bouchard / Dobson. I'd prefer Bouchard. You'd prefer Hughes. Cool. :ok:

Comparing a second round pick to a top 10 pick, seems reasonable. They're not comparable players. Bouchard is "pretty good" at one thing, everything else has been highly praised. IMO their ceilings are similar, but I see one as having a significantly better chance of actually reaching it than the other. It's clear you won't be convinced though and are pretty single track minded, so in that case, Wheelchairsuperhero OUT!

I know. It's pretty annoying isn't it.

IF HOLLAND IS DUMB ENOUGH TO TAKE MCISSAC AT 6 ILL BE USING WINGS JERSEYS FOR FUEL AT MY 4TH OF JULY BBQ

Lol it's not even Friday yet and you're already losing it!!

 

*sigh* I can't pretend. It's just not the same without him. He needs to get his rear back here before Friday or this is gonna be the most boring draft ever

It's like trying to convince a kid that the new hamster is just as good as the old one. 

@The 91 of Ryans we appreciate the effort, but it's just not the same. 

Also, composite rankings:

Filip Zadina 3.06
Brady Tkachuk 5.24
Oliver Wahlstrom 6.65
Quinton Hughes 6.88
Adam Boqvist 7.41
Noah Dobson 9.29
Evan Bouchard 9.59
Jesperi Kotkaniemi 11.00

Maybe the best top-10 we've seen since...I don't know...before the Wings were bad enough to bother looking at the top-10.

Watch, like seven of them are going to bust now.
