    NHL Draft: #1 = Eichel or McDavid?

    So who's going first, Jack Eichel or Connor McDavid? I've only seen short clips of them and read the analysis. McDavid is more the overall phenom, amazing puck awareness, but I think Eichel may be the stronger and have a better shot. I'd love to see Eichel on the Blackhawks but that ain't happening with their cap room and draft picks. Interesting to see who picks them up and how they end up contributing. The WJC wasn't televised much so I kind of missed that opportunity to see them and any other top prospects.

    McDavid is supposed to be the next generational talent.

    Personally, I'd take McDavid. No idea will go #1, though.

    McDavid will and deserves to go number #1. It's clear to me that he's better than Eichel. In fact, some people believe that Eichel wasn't even the best player on the US team at the WJC. Didn't help Jack's case that they were bounced early by the Russians.

    I only know what I've read and seen some short clips. Yes, McDavid is considered the top choice and can do some amazing things.

    Fucking Edmonton again? Then again, Hall, Nugent-Hopkins, and Yakupov each was supposed to be next generational talent.
