Looking at previous drafts it seems like top 8 selections are either in their pro contract right away and in the AHL or they are in the NHL that season. If figure DP is 2 years from an ELC. 1 year in the A. (worst case, best case he's in the A next year)

I know every draft the talent level varies, and I'm not sure how far away Forsberg is (my pick for 8), but it seems a bit of a head scratcher that you get a top 8 pick that is a good number of years away.
I think pouliot will be back in the whl next year. Unless the baby pens clean house in some serious trades with their d there is no point in rushing him in. Joe morrow is already the product of too many d men and not enough spots
