Another ridiculous game today by Kakko. Some great goals. Strength and speed. I think we are getting Hughes, and that's okay to me. Both will be studs, but Kakko looks unreal. The worst place to be is # 3 missing out on these two studs. Right now I think the Devs take Kakko.

One thing to remember...This Tournament means absolutely everything to the Euro teams...compete level etc... is through the roof. Also Kakko is playing on the larger ice surface...game is faster on the NHL ice surface

World Championships are an inferior tournament. And I'm saying this as a European who used to watch them every year in full.

Kakko has been playing against men already, knows the wider rink, plays on the top line. In this tournament, he's holding all the cards compared to Hughes.
No way take the Devil's this little tournament as a decisive factor.

Plus there's a lot more to picking a no 1 pick if it's this close.
Lots of background checks and other non public information coming into play.

You always take the center unless the wing is an Ovechkin type. I hope the Devils are dumb and take Kakko. You win cups with center depth. If Hughes slipped to us it would allow us to not use Kravtsov, Chytil or Andersson at center which I'm a big fan off. Howden is the natural center of that group. Hughes will also make his wings better as he fills out. Kakko will make great plays no doubt. However, either Kravtsov, Chytil and Andersson will have to take second center role. I'm not confident in any of them to do that. I think Kravtsov is a pretty good lock to be a top line wing. Not sure about a center. What I'd love to see is them package a Pionk with a Chytil and the Jets pick to go get a Cozens. That's the kind of guy that will fit in perfectly with Quinn.

Those fancy stick handling moves by Kakko ain't working in the NHL for long. Especially when they start cross checking you in the back of the head a few times.

At days end the odds are the Devs take Hughes. With that said this is very close, and Kakko has played against men for a while now. Downplaying what he has done in Finland, or in the Worlds through two games, I think is faulty. He has been pretty dominating for two games, and at worst was very good this season as an 18 year old against men.

It's probably the 5th or so best league in the world he plays in. Not bad doing the things he has done as an 18 year old. His comp has been better than Hughes' comp though, that's for sure.

People get caught up in comparing. To me I think both will be studs, so adding either one is a huge win.

Getting Hughes would make life a lot easier. Put Kravtsov and Andersson on wing.

Was watching some Hughes highlights. He knows how to find all the lanes, buy time to make the passes when he enters the zone. He needs to fill out his frame quite a bit. However, he will make his wings a lot better. I though Zibanejad finally started doing that this year. I have high hopes for Howden. He had a pretty good rookie season for a player so young. That long, goal drought got in his head a little that happens to a lot of players that young.

People have preferences for Kakko or Hughes, but whats important is the Rangers will get one of them. Kakko more of a sure thing at present, and more NHL ready, Quinn will be asked to take a huge step if he "makes" a NHL team next season. Brace yourselves for the thought Hughes might need some more seasoning somewhere next year based on his underwhelming WC performance against men. You want that kid to hit the NHL running, not struggling to find his way. But he'd still be the best prospect to join the Rangers organization in a long long time. Going to be good watching all this unfold with the Rangers in the middle of it for a change.

Thank you typo corrections are always nice. For some reason stuck on Quinn as their last name. . Jack may need seasoning. He is not even close to where his brother Quinn was physically and mentally when he made his debut with the Canucks

I think he will absolutely need seasoning, he needs to get a little bigger while maintaining his speed and skating ability. I think his decision making is top level but the NHL regular season is a grind, and I fully expect both to taper off past the all star break since they are not used to the mental schedule of an 82 game season. Quinn I think got a boost coming out of college last year because for a while these NCAA guys run on adrenaline because they just made "the show". We'll see how well they hold up to a full NHL season. Same applies for Makar, Fox, etc.

Any player coming into the league needs to adapt mostly to the day to day rigors which catch up to a lot of young olayers after Christmas mid January or so. Which is different than Jack needing seasoning to have a Impact at any point in the season. His issue will not be burn out after Christms it will be is he ready period. And if he's not the Rangers better be smarter than they were with Chytil and in particular Andersson last season. Neither one of whom showed much growth to lead one to believe they will be much better this year. Although in fairness Chytil had a few moments of evidence of some good upside. Andersson really didn't do much of anything. Andersson again not exactly lighting up the AHL either. And there was no opportunity lacking in Hartford or New York, good ready players find their game, neither one of them did.

He beats Montour of Buffalo and Chabot of Ottawa on that breakaway for his 1st goal.... both NHL defensemen, but.....

Did you see him vs USA? Did you watch that OT??? He was real impressive maintaining possession against Ryan Suter... one of the best defenders in the world. Suter was NOT easy on him. Most would've been out matched.... Hughes would've been out matched....

He's facing a lot of NHL talent here... there's no doubt in my mind that what you see is what you get here. He's ready for a top 6 role on any team in the league TODAY.... Hughes is not. Hughes, maybe gets the 2nd line on this team or NJD, but that's questionable.

Hughes will adapt, though.

USA had him on the 3rd line C to start... he did ok, but was sheltered.... they moved him to play with Eichel, probably given the instruction to emulate him.... and after that sat him out.... not as punishment... not because he's not talented enough.... but to watch, and learn. Don't be surprised if he's back in the lineup for USA. As a center.

Hughes WILL be a legit #1 C in the NHL.... that's what you're guaranteed. Devils would be smart to go for the 1-2 punch with Hughes and Hischier

Hughes may be the most agile player in the world. His combination of speed, skating, hands, and vision are off the charts.

I still want Kakko, but the more I see of Hughes, the more I see the hype

He has McDavid-like ability when he's skating with the puck. The question is if he'll be able to find the open ice and time to make the most use of that skill in the NHL. He used to be able to just blow past guys, and he's not going to be able to do that as much in the NHL. He's been the consensus #1 for 3 years for good reason.

This USA-Russia game has been very good. Hughes has been one of the US' better forwards all game after sitting out the last one. Two steals that led directly to goals. He's a shifty little kid. Second goal being challenged now but I think it should hold up.

Mark Stone wins it in OT. That sucks. Switzerland was 0.3 seconds away from the biggest upset in their nation's history (probably)

Kakko and some other guys play Sweden this afternoon.

Kakko's line scores on the first shot of the game. I don't think Kakko figured in the scoring directly but he had a subtle little interference play on OEL to open up a lane.
