Most teams have their 1st round drafted forwards in the NHL in their 2nd and 3rd years post draft.

When haven't teams had high expectations of their 1st rounders making the team within 3 years?

I already busted Philly and New Jersey. Their successful 1st round picks are typically in the NHL full at least by their 3rd year.

Nashville played Suter, Radulov and C.Wilson in their first full seasons in their 3rd year.

San Jose played Vlasic full time in his 2nd year (as a 19yo) Michalek full time in his 3rd year. But only gave gave Couture and Setoguchi half seasons in the NHL in their 3rd years before making it full time in their 4th.

What I think is based on what other teams do. The majority of other teams have their successful 1st rounders in the NHL by now.

Schenn played 7 games in the minors. Is two weeks out of six months significant?
He played 54 games in the NHL and looks to have spent another 20 on the NHL IR.

Saying that he made the NHL team is bragging him up?

It's beneficial for teams to have NHL ready talent to fill roster spots while their on their ELC's.
It seems to be expected, based on how the majority of teams who promote their successful 1st rounders, that most 1st round picks are expected to make the NHL by their 3rd year post draft.
