Top youngsters? 6F, 4D, 2G from each country
 
I thought I'd make a thread to compare/discuss the top young players from each country. Pick a country, and list who you consider to be their top 6 forwards, 4 dmen and 2 goalies FOR THE FUTURE. These players must currently be no older than 22 years old, and they can be no younger than 2013 draft eligible.

I'll start with Sweden:

Forwards:
Gabriel Landeskog (20)
Elias Lindholm (18)
Filip Forsberg (18)
Calle Jarnkrok (21)
Jakob Silfverberg (22)
Mika Zibanejad (19)

Dmen:
Erik Karlsson (22)
OEL (21)
Adam Larsson (20)
Victor Hedman (22)

Goalies:
Jacob Markstrom (22)
Robin Lehner (21)

Analysis:
Their dmen and goalies are absolutely insane, CRAZY good. I'm leaving out tonnes of other good young dmen as well (Brodin, Rundblad, Klefbom, Erixon, Lindholm, Hagg, etc.). Their forwards are not as strong, but they're still very good. Overall Sweden clearly have an extremely bright future.

Forwards

Derek Stepan - Age 22
Alex Galchenyuk - Age 18
Chris Kreider - Age 21
Emerson Etem - Age 20
Kyle Palmieri - Age 21
Johnny Gaudreau - Age 19

Defense

Jake Gardiner - Age 22
Cam Fowler - Age 20
John Carlson - Age 22
Zach Bogosian - Age 22

Goalies

John Gibson - Age 19
Jack Campbell - Age 20

Once again the US's strength lies in defense. That's 4 top flight youngsters with Trouba, Jones, and McCabe still in the pipeline.

Fucale/Martin/Comrie are all great goaltending prospects, but Canadian goalie development as of late has been questionable. We need to find out what USA and Finland are doing with their talent.

Subban's well on his way: play exceptionally well, to get your team to the big game, and soil the linen when it matters most.:sarcasm:

I'm an oilers fan who didn't want to sound like a homer. Also, Couturier is a stud.

That literally has nothing to do with Luongo sucking.

I remember never having confidence when the puck was in our zone. I'm pretty sure this was a ubiquitous feeling among Canadians.
