2014 NHL Draft Rankings: Consensus Top 50

They're baaaaaaaaaaaaack. - Abelimages

Lack of movement defines the top talent.

Except for Michael Dal Colle and his Jeff Skinner-like scoring prowess, the Consensus list has remained stale...at the top.  The later portion of the first round and the second round have some movers including Nikolaj Ehlers - the superstar Dane from Halifax responsible for burying Jonathan Drouin's fabulous passes.

The sources for the consensus list are The Scouting Report, Future Considerations, 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. I may tinker with the model as the draft approaches - McKenzie is the most accurate of the group, but he typically only ranks 75-90 players. Pronman is the most accurate predictor from rounds 4-7, but that isn't reflected in the overall weighting.
