For me the top 5 are:
I pretty much agree with this...
Hubs will be Florida's #1 for a long time
Galchenyuk is only #2 until his offensive skillz jump above Plekanec, then Pleks moves back to the #2 role he should occupy...
Granlund has a shit load of talent... But Koivo is signed long term, play up the middle... and is seasoned... Granlund will battle him for top C for a few years....
Schultz dont expect insane offensive #s for a couple years until the oilers sharpshooters hit stride in 2-3 years... but before then he should get .3 PPG or a bit more...
Baertschi... nothing slowing him down to be on the top line... injuries do bother me....
Tarasenko I like too with the team building around him... but like the oilers, his production is limited today from what it will be in 2 years....
Grigs, Strome... they are aa step below these guys... likely 60 point NHLers consistantly with a couple PPG seasons... but i feel they are more secondary support players rather than stars....
