About Macachek, and other older prospects like him who seem like they could be a bust: Take a look at Johan Franzen. The Mule was only 3 months short of his 26th birthday the very first time he laced up in Detroit. That year he potted 12 whole points in 80 games of hockey. You can stay within the Detroit organization and count a good number of players who didn't graduate out of the AHL until around 24-25 years old.

A little closer to home, James Patrick comes to mind. Some guys take a little longer to get there.

On the top 3, I say:
1: Scheifele
2: Postma
3: Macachek/Kulda - Don't know too much about either of these guys, but they both look like they should at least be able to land a depth role with the team in the next season or two.
