Draft tonight! Need opinons/help on players

My friends and I are having a draft tonight, and last year i won by picking a few players that no one else really thought of picking. (ex. Erik Karlsson, 45 pts to 78pts) and i know this year, he will be picked in the first round/early second round for sure.

For our draft we are doing 12 skaters and 2 goalies. (FWD/D doesnt matter) but one of the 12 must be a rookie. I know guys like Huberdeau, Yakupov, Galchenyuk, will go, are there any others that should be decent picks?

Some players i have questions about are...

Cody Hodgson (BUF) is he/can he be a legit top-3 center?

Damien Brunner (DET) heard he is pretty good and will play in top-6, this true?

Jakob Silfverberg (OTT) will he play in top 6? or even top 3 with spezza?

Erik Karlsson (OTT) will he have the same point production? I know he wont have 70 points again... but will he still but up decent points? Because in play offs he had 7 GP and only 1 goal.

Brayden Schenn (PHI) Will he play top 6? Have decent point production?

Nazem Kadri (TOR) Will he be sent back down? is he a legit top-6 player?

JVR (TOR) Will he shine in toronto? Putting up some decent production?

Lindback (TMP) Will he be a legit starting goalie for tampa?

Kreider/Hagelin (NYR) Will these guys both be top-6 players for the rangers? Who will play with Nash/Richards

Gaborik (NYR) is he injured?

Jeff Carter/Mike Richards (LAK) Can these guys get points like they did in philly?

Galchenyuk (MTL) Will he be a top-6 player this year? Or will he only play 5 games and not burn a year off his contract? Will he produce for the club and stay up?

Nathan Horton (BOS) Come back year for Horton?

Sven Bartschi (CGY) Will he play 48-games with Calgary in top-6? He scored 3 goals in 5 games last season, can he get even more?

David Perron (STL) Can he put up decent numbers?

Brandon Dubinsky (CLB) Is he a top line center?

Mikhail Granlund (MIN) Can he play top-6? and still get some point production

Parise/Koivu/Heatley (MIN) Will these guys work well together (point production) and bring MIN to playoffs?

Justin Schultz (EDM) Can he produce points half as good as he did in AHL?

RNH (EDM) Will he do as well as he did last year? Considered he was injured last season.

Huberdeau (FLR) Will he play on the top line for florida? will he produce points?

Paccioretty (MTR) Can he continue to produce points on the top line with DD and Cole?

Derek Stepan (NY) Can he be a second line center and get points with Gaborik? (If gaborik plays with them.

Derek Roy (DAL) Can he put up points like he did in Buffalo?

Kane/Toews (CHI) Can these guys continue producing for chicago?

If you dont know the answers to all, please just answer the ones you know haha, thanks so much!

For rookies, Mikael Granlund (MIN) and Vladimir Tarasenko (STL) are both Calder candidates, I'd take them right along with Yakupov, Huberdeau, etc.

Cory Conacher (TB) and Jakob Silfverberg (OTT) are also good rookie picks. And Justin Schultz (EDM) could be huge, who knows. After that, it seems to drop off pretty quick.

Rangers lines are

Hagelin-Richards-Nash
Gaborik-Stepan-Callahan

Having 2 scorers on his side should be great for Stepan, and Hagelin will continue where he left off (50-60 point pace)
Gaborik is healthy.
Kreider is starting on the 3rd line, but will see top-6 time

To answer some of your questions...

Yes, he can be a top-3 center and Buffalo will need him to be. He demonstrated offensive upside with limited ice time in Vancouver, but if your league counts +/- you may want to keep your distance as so far playing well defensively isn't one of his attributes.

Brayden Schenn (PHI) Will he play top 6? Have decent point production?
He's currently playing on a line with Giroux and Hartnell and he hopes to stay there. He should play in the top six.

If he were a legit top-6 player, he would be on the Leafs full time by now. Don't waste your time with him.

Quote:
Lindback (TMP) Will he be a legit starting goalie for tampa?
He has only 22 NHL games to his name, so it's really hard to tell. Something tells me Tampa will be in the market for a goalie within a month or so, but I could be wrong. You'd be better off finding someone more established.

Yes; especially Toews. Pick him if you can.

Kadri is on the Leafs full time; he's playing on a line with JvR.
