Aren't most of these top draft picks hovering around a $3million cap hit?

If I had to make a complete shot in the dark, Gauthier. Laughton made it and nobody would have predicted that this time last year. Granted he did just get sent down.

Jones. Barkov. Maybe Mackinnon. Depending on the team maybe Drouin.

How many 2012 draftees are there in the NHL right now? I'm sure more than 3 will find their way onto an NHL roster.

By my count, the guys left still up...



Yakupov
Galchenyuk
Grigorenko
Matteau

Maybe I'm missing somebody and you can add in Ryan Murray if you feel inclined since he would probably have been there.

Guys like Barkov, Ristolainen and maybe even guys like Lazar and Shinkaruk will get looks, depending on which teams they end up with.

Ryan Pulock is another guy that could be kept up, depending on the situation he's placed in.
Ristolainen won't be NHL-ready i'm pretty sure about it. If you include MacKinnon as lock you should include Barkov too. Both are close to lock IMO.

Elias Lindholm is physically close being NHL-ready but i don't think that is it best for his developement to jump right away to NHL. 1 or 2 year as Brynäs #1 C will be good for him getting more confidence and maybe being dominant.

Barkov is NHL ready as in he could jump right in and be able to compete at the NHL level, but it would not be the best for his development as there are some attributes he still needs to improve on (especially skating).

Or 2 years older, or even 2.5 years older... In any event, MacKinnon will be ready for the NHL next season, no question about it.

I think his skating is still too weak to make the jump.

In that case he'll have alot of work in front of him if hes going to face old vets that are 15 years older than him. Hes so tiny

He was on a fourth line and didn't play much, clearly here someone watched the world junior . Mackinnon is a lock for the NHL next season stop pretending you know him you probably couldn't even name his QMJHL team without going to hockeydb.

He's 5'11 and 6ft on some sites he's not tiny at all. His skating and skills make him NHL ready. Not to mention he improved defensively.

He was also asked to paly more a grinder role and played less than 5 minutes per game while not playing on the PP. That is why he couldn't perform he is a center and because of the lockout team Canada was the team with the most depth at center. What did you expect? Him to take the #1 center role away from RNH.

When in the WJC? So you're saying he won't be NHL ready because you've seen him play on a 4th line. Too much of a small sample size to say he's not NHL ready. His skating really makes him NHL ready, I'm not saying he'll dominate but he will play in the NHL right off the bat.

Mac

Barkov

Haven't seen enough of Monahan.

Lindholm and Drouin might but I think it would better for them not to.
