Given that a lot of these young guys are very green and not as strong as a guy like Howden at this point, it's a big concerning to me if players like Howden or McFarland are not standing out. Hopefully these guys come around and I know development camp is not a place to gain any insight from, but I do have high hopes for Trochek, Bjugs, Barkov, Matheson, and Petrovic to hopefully be the next wave of young studs for us.
Howden looked great in drills and practices, but it's hardly a fair determination of how he actually is "looking". Training camp will tell us more, but I'd guess that he will start the season in the AHL but won't stay there all season.
