Re: Naruto Manga Chapter 620 Discussion and 621 Predictions
Ok for your first question, Hashirama is the strongest ninja to ever live with the obvious exclusion of the SO6P. He is able to break the edo Tensi's bindings because Oro isn't strong enough to hold him down. He was revived at near full power so his immense chakra alone breaks them. Hell it nearly collapsed the building. Tobirama is extremely strong as well, but just not strong enough.

The reason that Minato is being quiet is that he isn't the one who is being questioned... Sasuke is specifically asking the first. Minato wasn't around when hashi and tobirama were alive and the first actually has the experience so that is why he is the one talking.
When it comes to powerscaling the kage its really a unique position. We know that Hashi is quite possibly the strongest ninja to ever live and that tobirama was also very powerful. Hiruzen was said to have mastered every jutsu in the leaf village, but we never really saw him fight in his prime. And his only fight we saw was him as an old man and honestly the powerscaling in part one is nowhere close to part two. we didn't have jinchurikis and EMS/Rinnegan users running around in part one. Then we have minato. We saw him own a young Obito and stop the ninetails and also fight killer bee. With what little knowledge we have of him we can say minato was an incredibly strong ninja. But really we can't compare the kages at the moment because just too little are known about them. And even if the third is the weakest of them, what does that really mean? The weakest of four of the strongest ninjas in konoha history?
Jiraya is my all time favorite character, but no i don't want him to come back and its not possible. Kabuto stated at the beginning of this war that he could not collect jirayas dna because his body is at the bottom of an ocean and the pressure is too strong. I love jiraya, i just don't think bringing him back will do any good. Speaking of kabuto i don't think he'll be a key player anymore seeing as he has lost oro's dna. I don't think he himself is strong enough to do edo, which was his only real jutsu that was elite and certainly not strong enough to do sage mode.
And as for your final question, kishi stated late last year that naruto will be around for likely another year and a half. So it should wrap up in around spring of 2014.
