Lindholm is likely, could be this year's Collberg for Sweden. I don't think it's likely the other Swedes will be there, but all of them have a shot.
The two Finns will be there for sure. Ristolainen should have a massive impact, as big as any draft eligible guy in this year's WJC.
I don't see any of the Canadians making it other than MacKinnon. I'm expecting a top 6 role for MacKinnon, similar to the role Hall and Stamkos played.
And to be honest, if Mackinnon makes it, I think it will be in a top 6 role. Stamkos ended up in the top 6 when he played, and Hall (an 18 year old) was on the top line
Jones is a lock assuming he's healthy. He was possibly top pair last year.
Erne is unlikely but possible b
