McKeens releases their final rankings

The final shoe has dropped. Both ISS and Red Line released their final rankings and now we finally have McKeen's - here is their top 10:

1. Steven Stamkos
2. Zach Bogosian
3. Alex Pietrangelo
4. Drew Doughty
5. Luke Schenn
6. Mikkel Boedker
7. Nikita Filatov
8. Chet Pickard
9. Cody Hodgson
10. Erik Karlsson

Definitely a different look from ISS and Red Line who both had Filatov 2nd and Bogosian/Doughty at 3/4.

1. Steven Stamkos
2. Nikita Filatov
3. Zach Bogosian
4. Drew Doughty
5. Alex Pietrangelo
6. Luke Schenn
7. Mikkel Boedker
8. Colin Wilson
9. Cody Hodgson
10. Luca Sbisa

Red Line
1. Steven Stamkos
2. Nikita Filatov
3. Zach Bogosian
4. Drew Doughty
5. Mikkel Boedker
6. Alex Pietrangelo
7. Luke Schenn
8. Kirill Petrov
9. Cody Hodgson
10. Tyler Myers

Analyzing all 3 lists there is one clear message. There is a top 7 in this draft. Of course the order of those top 7 is subject to debate. We have Stamkos at #1 on all lists. After that Bogosian and Doughty are in the top 4 of all lists. The real wild card of this draft, Nikita Filatov, is in the top 2 on ISS and Red Line but dropped all the way down to 7 on McKeen's rankings.

Where it really gets jumbled is after the top 7. All 3 lists have Cody Hodgson ranked but completely different players make up the other two slots in each list.

13 days to go!
