NHL Draft Question. Who are the best rookies in the draft? Where will they go?

I know a lot about hockey, but not very much about the incoming rookies. Who are the best rookies and where will they end up. Whoever has the most amount right on where they end up going will get the 10 points for the best answer.

    The best draftable players will go 1 and 2. LOL

    My bet is that the Oilers will chose Seguin and squeeze a draft pick outta Boston because they really covet Taylor Hall. Oilers are in a rebuilding mold and can wait another year for Seguin. They are strong on the wings and woefully weak at centre.

    No sense in picking all first rounders. Calgary and Toronto don't have first round picks so watch Darryl Sutter (who always makes draft day deals) and Brian Burke trade roster players for a first rounder. Florida has a lot of picks so they will likely want to get some NHL players for draft picks.

    I agree that ERIK GUDBRANSON will be drafted third. A Phaneuf like rambuctious hitter.

    Hall and Seguin all they way are the best rookies at the draft.

    One of them will either play for the Oilers and who is ever left over the Bruins will have.

    I know Tyler Seguin is one of them.

    Do I have to? It takes too long, and plus what if draft picks get traded around?
