The Metropolitan Division dominates the podium early on.

We're so very far from the end, but it would be hilarious if the final NHL standings looked similar to the Power Rankings - the Metropolitan Division would have four of the top seven picks.

The sources for the consensus list are Future Considerations, The Scouting Report, ISS, Red Line Report, Craig Button of TSN, Corey Pronman of ESPN and Bob McKenzie from TSN. Their rankings are weight by their accuracy in ranking previous drafts: Bob McKenzie's rankings carry the most weight as he was the most accurate prognosticator in the group.

The source for the draft order is the Copper & Blue Power Rankings.
