Welcome to my second edition of the top 100 NHL draft prospect rankings at ESPN. The following is my analysis of the top prospects eligible to be selected in the 2015 NHL draft.
For a detailed explanation of my ranking methodology, click here. Note that players are not separated into tiers, but there is a drop-off in talent that occurs after picks No. 1, 2, and 5, and a small drop-off at 20 before the marginal decrease in talent at each slot continues throughout the rankings.
From discussions throughout the year with scouts, I've heard this class described as a "super class," a simply "good" class and one that's "very average beyond the top two." I fall into the middle of those three.
