It was a super tough call. Both players are superstars, I went with Cale playing D as my separator (if all else is equal: C>D>W – Goalies are their own thing).
I find Rantanen’s shot to be so under-rated. I think he’s got multiple 50+ goal seasons in his future.
Great time to be an Avs fan.

Indeed, I had Byram third behind Makar and Rantanen. My rankings favored upside and youth as a tie-breaker.
My top 5 went – Makar, Rantanen, Byram, Newhook, Girard.
Not that I hate Sammy G, I just think he is what he is at this point (decent 1st pair, elite 2nd pair). Byram has elite 1st pair potential (and more in my personal opinion, but I’m really bullish on Bowen’s future). Newhook I see as a potential 1C/Elite 2C in the future.
