    What rookies are poised to make impacts next season?

    Post by PTFlea on Mon Jul 09, 2012 6:24 pm

    In your opinion, who are the players that will not only make their respective clubs, but have a big impact as well.

    Thinking 50+ points for a forward and 30+ points for a D-man, something around that. Or a powerhouse defensive D-man, big time goalie.

    My personal opinion is:

    1.Jonathan Huberdeau
    2.Vladamir Tarasenko
    3.Dougie Hamilton
    4.Mikael Granlund
    5.Nail Yakupov
    6.Ryan Murray
    7.Sven Baertschi

    Pretty much in that order.

    Yeah, I meant to put Silfverberg in there as a (legitimate) homer pick.

    I think Yakupov is going to light it up.

    Schultz might be the rookie leader in points for d-men.

    Could be, but I doubt it. Not to the tune of 30+ points, at least.

    Jacob Silverberg. That's what he wants to be called. Easier for the MC in Vegas to pronounce Smile

    I think Yakupov will simply not get as much ice time, and his totals will suffer. That's the problem with being the 3rd 1st overall pick in a row.

    Good call, I forgot about Kreider. If they don't trade for Nash or anything like that he'll get a real shot in the top-six.

    Girgenssons might be given a shot at the NHL.

    Still think Yakupov though.
