  • Connor McDavid. At 16, McDavid will be the youngest player at the 2014 World Juniors as he plays against guys 4 years older than himself. He’s having a great year in the OHL and is expected to be the first overall pick in 2015.
  • Sam Reinhart. Yes I know it’s odd that I didn’t put the expected first overall pick for this years draft in my top 5, but there’s too much uncertainty around this draft and I’m not sold on Reinhart. He does play centre and at 6 foot 1 he has great size, but does he have the skill to be the number one centre for the Sabres of the future? He’s certainly benefiting from a weak draft and who know’s what his potential will be.
