I don't know if Leblanc's past season would qualify as a rookie year, and he should be developing in the AHL to start next season, hopefully. I just don't see us having a rookie on the team full time next year. Hoping for some smart short term UFA signings to clog holes until our drafted players are ready to make an impact.
bit darkshorse, but he'll probably be 200pds+ come training camp, and his versatility & reliability should help make him more "nhl-ready" than either Beaulieu & Tinordi, both of whom probably have higher ceilings but who have more noticeable flaws to work out.
up front, Gallagher is the obvious pick, but i'll put my money on Engqvist... Came on strong to end the season last year, big frame & good hands, depending on how the summer works out, should once again find himself with a great opportunity to make the opening day roster.
Dumba and Murray could make a good impact. But since our D seem's okay I think they should stay in the W/O one more season.
And about the forwards I don't think none of them could make it.
The only one that could make it is TT. But he'll likely wont. To be succesful those kid's need's three first line minutes. Galchenyuk and Grigorenko are likely out since they are centers (altought Grigo could start at RW).
Only possible choice : Forsberg
