I think it would be silly not to graduate RNH and Schenn though. The 65 games should be a guideline, not an absolute no exceptions rule IMO. Those two only missed the 65 games because of a couple injuries. They're established NHLers at this point - no longer prospects.
Well then if RNH graduates Tarasenko should definitely be #1. I think Boston's Dougie Hamilton will also be pretty high up the list.

Knowing Hitchcock, he'll likely have to prove his worth on the PK first.
