Fast was part of the Bobby Sanguinetti trade. It was a 6th round pick in 10(Fast) and a 2nd round pick in 11. The 2nd rounder was sent to Calgary as part of the Tim Erixon trade.

The Fast SPC counts against the 50 SPC limit if he is loaned to his team in Sweden.

This "lineup" is for 2013 as things stand now. So you do not think Our first round pick Miller will be able to compete for a spot then? If so - not so good. I know very little about him so I am just generalizing....

Lindberg is also a faceoff beast, but I doubt he makes the team over Boyle.

****ing A. First Yogan and now Fasth. We've locked up the two draft picks I most wanted to see sign contracts (other than Kreider) already.

Now go get me Schultz as an UFA and I'm a happy camper as far as signings go this spring.

I didn't realize you were talking two seasons from now. If that is the case, Miller will most likely make the team. But he needs probably another year of development at the AHL level. If he gets sent back to juniors next season, he probably won't be in the lineup till 2014.

If its for 12-13, then no, I don't think he'll be competing for a roster spot.

If its for 13-14, then he should defiantly be competing for a roster spot.

Kreider was drafted in 2009. Was ready in 2012.
McD was drafted in 2007. Was ready in 2011.
Steps was drafted in 2008. Ready in 2010.
Miller was drafted in 2011. I don't think we'll see him next year, although he can always surprise us.

That is right. We had traded away our #6 pick to the Piles (for Jyri Niemi) and Christer Rockstrom went nuts and really loudly wanted Fast(h) to get picked. The brass obliged, then fired Rockstrom....

Very fast, if not at their level, he isn't far off.

Very much a possibility. If there is any prospect in our system who could surprise us its JT Miller. He is the hardest guy to pin down what his ceiling could be.

Fast is fast but not Kreider/Hagelin fast. Gaborik fast is Fast at his quickest... Quick is a fast goalie too...

Kreider, Hagelin, Gaborik (if he's still here when Fasth comes over), Fasth, 4 real quick wingers.
Fogarty and Yogan. Both have top-six upside, but both are pretty consistently labeled as bottom-six guys by our fan base. I've seen Fasth plugged into our top-six plenty of times. Not once have I ever seen either of those guys in that spot.

Obviously Fasth deserves some of the hype, but I don't think he's as underrated as the other two.

Fogarty I could see, but I am not sure on Yogan. I think he has all the athletic tools, but I don't think his IQ is top six material.

Yogan will certainly be an NHL player though.

Don't know how far off I am, but I catch glimpses of Callahan in Miller.

Miller is more gifted than Callahan in terms of skill. But Miller has similarities in terms of work ethic. Miller also is more positionally versatile. He can play wing or center.

That is EXACTLY the type of player he is.

I have his Player of the Week card in NHL 12 HUT and I boosted him up to a 91 overall and have him playing with Richards and Gaborik. Let's just say, the line dominates.

With Fasth it is not about straight-line speed. It's about elusiveness and quickness. He is more like Datsyuk in his speed than say Erik Cole if that makes sense. He is slippery because of his agility.

Sounds like a lot of people here expect to him to be an impact player in the NHL. Can anyone tell me why he fell to the 6th round? Late bloomer? Concerns about him coming to NA?

He was underrated abit and he's a late bloomer (if you can call a 21 year old that... ).

Btw he is going to be loaned out to his current SEL club (HV71) next season, great news . Good for his development.

He's fast, lanky, very skilled, and plays hard. He goes into "dirty areas". Doesn't shy away from the physical game.

Good at both ends.

He's an underrated high-end player.

I've had him listed as one of our top five prospects for a while. Ahead of Thomas.

Kreider
Erixon
Miller
McIlrath
Fast

What kind of numbers in the SEL are a good indicator of NHL sucess? I know SEL is fairly low scoring and he was almost a PPG player before getting hurt this season. What should we hope from him in HV71 next year? Also, does anyone have an update on his size? He's a tad skinny by all acounts.

He's lanky but not weak. That said he can get stronger.

SEL isn't a high scoring league but you shouldn't judge a prospect based on points in any league.

If he plays a full season in the SEL next season. Look for about 30-35 points. 12-15 goals. Which would be among the team leaders.

Fast's numbers are good, considering the heavy injury the guy had to go through. They will be even (and a lot) better next year, expect him to be a PPG+ player, which is outstanding for the SEL.

Good, good thing they signed him.
