I'm more excited to see Hornqvist actually.

2) Long shot player that could make it out of camp on the roster?

Sulzer!!!!

3) Player most likely to start on ANOTHER NHL roster?

Ortmeyer - I'm going to second that one (please God let him go somewhere else....)

4) Young player most likely to make an impression?

I love the Laakso pick, and I agree. I'm going to say Franson as well.

Seen Hornqvist at prospect camp and at training camp last season...never seen Jones, except for on TV during his NCAA career...looking forward to seeing whether or not he is ready.

2) Long shot player that could make it out of camp on the roster?

Sulzer made incredible strides last season, but missed the end of the year after injuring his groin. I expect Alex will be the first recall from Milwaukee, but will need to start down in the AHL to get a little more seasoning. Pihlstrom is my candidate. Antti has an impressive European resume and played quite well last season in Milwaukee. Definitely has a two-way game that combines skill with tenacity and will continue to blossom with top talent around him at the NHL level.

3) Player most likely to start on ANOTHER NHL roster?

Personally, I think Ortmeyer will start the season on IR. Trotz essentially said as much in the paper this morning. I'm thinking Michael Ryan is my candidate to start elsewhere. Ryan is on a PTO to attend training camp and, if he plays up to his potential, he might get a look from someone and get claimed before clearing waivers to make it down to Milwaukee. Triston Grant is another possibility...

4) Young player most likely to make an impression?

Mark Santorelli, the younger brother, is my pick for standout youngester. I really liked Santorelli's potential last season at training camp and wasn't surprised at all when he lead the WHL in scoring last year. Could turn out to be one of our better first-year pros this season playing in Milwaukee and personally, I think he has a great chance at making the NHL someday.

Pihlstrom, in my eyes, is not so much a long shot to make the team....it is simply a numbers situation. The only reason he doesn't make this team is because we do not want to lose one of Bonk, Nichol, Fiddler, Smithson, Tootoo, Ortmeyer, etc.

Ryan Jones

2) Long shot player that could make it out of camp on the roster?

If Ortmeyer starts out on IR, then a spot instantly opens up for Pihlström to make the team out of camp and play on the 3rd line with Nichol and Tootoo, like Trotz talked about last spring. This would then move Fiddler to the 4th line with Smithson and Bonk.

3) Player most likely to start on ANOTHER NHL roster?

Michael Ryan.

4) Young player most likely to make an impression?

Teemu Laakso will pwn some noobs.

You guys who picked Laakso: Have you actually seen him play? I'm a big fan of his, but he's never really seemed like the type to impress. He's not flashy, he's just safe and steady (most of the time).

Unless he's shown a different side to his game over there at last years camp? Maybe he could play there more freely, than he did over here in a big role as a young player on a team with a lot of pressure to succeed and probably the most demanding fans in the league.

Well, anyways, I really hope he does impress you guys, but I'm not really expecting him to. I'd be fine with him having a good/decent camp and a decent first season in the AHL.

Hornqvist, he has great stats from Sweden and from the various tournaments. He looked good in last year's camp playing with Erat and Legwand.

Long shot player that could make it out of camp on the roster?
Pihlstrom, but only because Trotz will probably keep going with the same crap like Fiddler, Nichol, Smithson, Peverley, etc.

Player most likely to start on ANOTHER NHL roster?
Bonk

Young player most likely to make an impression?
Hornqvist

I answered the question with the thoughts that he will impress the coaching staff, not necessarily the fans ....

[QUOTE=SLake;15385458]1) Player you are most looking forward to seeing?

I've seen Hornquvist before and we know what he is capable of. He's done great in ione of the best leagues in the world against men. I'm more looking forward to Jones to see if he can keep up with the NHL'ers. It will be quite different than playing powerhouses such as Lake superior state

2) Long shot player that could make it out of camp on the roster?

I would def have to go with Philstrom as the most likely canidate. Darkhorses to be called up early are: Sulzer, Spaling, Franson

3) Player most likely to start on ANOTHER NHL roster?

I would go with Ortmeyer until learning of his injury. I wouldnt be surprised to see one of Gratton/Grant to end up as someone elses enforcer


4) Young player most likely to make an impression?

I'm gonna go with Spaling. He impressed me at Prosepct camp and I just have a feeling he will have a good camp.

Ah. That he may indeed do. I got the impression that he impressed them last year as well.

And to further elaborate, I think his physical play and passionate attitude will stand out (I keep thinking back to all of his PIMs a few years ago in the WJC). I don't think he will have any qualms of laying some hits, which will make things interesting .

That was my line of thinking as well.

As a Sabres fan who saw Mike Ryan play, he should catch on as a 4th liner somewhere. He's fast, gives 100% every shift, solid defensively and is a solid PKer. He simply lacks finish--and I mean he really, really lacks finish. But some team with limited forward depth could certainly use what he brings on the 4th line as someone who won't be a liability and brings it shift in and shift out.

Well he probably won't catch on here. We've got all those qualities in spades.

Haha, that's why Rangers fans were so high on Orts but when he came here he was just one of many.
