Top NHL scouts were pretty much in agreement that 3-9 was a crapshoot with no clear separation between the players.

You must know something none of them do I suppose... Wink

The top 4 were pretty much set across most scouts (MckMcKen, Button, etc...) as Dahlin, Svechnikov, Zadina/Tkachuk

Nope.

Actually, yes. Not sure where you read your info, but the consensus was pretty much Dahlin, Svhechnikov, Zadina/Tkachuk all year long for Top 4.

As I've mentioned, the only consensus around 3-9 was that there was no consensus.

How about post some mock draft lists from scouts that show Kotkaniemi at #3? It's fine to defend your team's pick, nothing inaccurate about saying he's off board based off scout draft lists

Heck, you yourself bic wanted Boqvist at 4. And that would NOT have been 'off the board'.

Lol, scout lists have reports about players and why there are movements among players positions.

Like this one, even the title is about a player like JK moving in draft rankings. Looks like all you've read is posters talking on this forum. Now you can try finding any scout report, lost or whatever it be cool with being wrong Happy

If you think there is a 'right and wrong' in this, you are wrong already. Wink

The trick is not putting so much stock in lists, but rather reading what the hockey people have to say about the players on the lists.

Read deeper.

Like the link I posted, experts won't just have rudimentary lists, they have sections were the detail and outline specific things. Tell me, what exactly should we be reading? Any links at all to this deeper source you think I'm missing out on?

Dorion responds to Friedman, apparently today has been the quietest day in regards to phone calls about players. I'm hoping that's a good sign
