According to Leslie Stepan is going to get a look early on between Gaborik and Frolov. Whether he's ready for the NHL is another thing but he is probably the best puck distributor in the whole organization so it does make sense.

In any case IMO Staal is every bit as good as Seabrook if not better. MDZ has a ways to go before he equals Keith. Still he is very young and talented and it seems determined to get better.

I can see Anisimov and Dubinsky improving on their numbers but Tortorella's going to have to rely on them more--especially Anisimov. Callahan I think has pretty much gotten to where he's going. A 35-40 point heart and soul guy who is excellent defensively.

These are the rookies that I see who have the best chance of making an impact this year.

Ryan McDonagh
Mats Zuccarello Aasen
Derek Stepan

Apart from those three I think Grachev and Weise both have decent shots at making the team.
