came to say the same. Pirri could be a dark horse and get some consideration. Wouldn't win it in the end "because he plays with Kane/Hossa/Sharp" but he could still end up as good Top6 option with 50+ points. (Big IF but could happen)



Drouin seems to be a good choice for now if he plays next to MSL and Stamkos for most of the year.

They'll likely be on different lines, and I think NHL media will like Monahan better (good ol' Canadian boy, intangibles and all that). If they have comparable seasons I could see Monahan getting the nod over Sven

MacKinnon has a shot. So will have the other 3 from Jones, Drouin or Barkov. As well as Nichushkin. It was a great draft so I expect many 1st rounders to stick.
Best chances out of the 2013 draft if they stick in order:
1. Drouin
2. Barkov
3. Nichuskin/MacKinnon
4. Jones

Who I think will win the Calder?:
1 out of Tarasenko/ Kuznetsov / Baertschi

Darkhorse? Toffoli
He won't be coming over until A)After the Olympics and B)Traktor (his KHL team) finishes the season. He'll play his last regular season game March 3rd and if his team goes deep in the playoffs (which it did last year 6 games in the finals). he could play his last game April 30th.

I firmly believe he runs away with it the following season though.

Tarasenko played past the 25 game mark making last season his rookie season.

Drouin (playing with Stamkos)
Toffoli (playing with Carter/Richards)
Barkov (playing with Huberdeau)


Mackinnon will play on the thirs, he has less chance to win it IMO.

I won't be surprised if MacKinnon has 80 points next season.

I doubt Barkov wins the Calder. He's still got a lot to do with his physique and the fact that he doesn't get much playing done before the start of the season makes it even harder. My guess is that he scores around 20-30 points if he plays a full season. This isn't based on any data, but IMO often big players take a few more years before they get their game going (Thornton, Jokinen, even Lecavalier come to mind).

When is the last time a player won the calder in his first year after the draft, coming from Europe? (Only Landeskog comes to mind, but he played 2 years in the CHL and was as physically ready as you'll ever see a 18-year-old).

Dark horse has to be Lindholm. He will play a big role for the Canes just like Skinner did his rookie year.

Welp, that's not happening. A rookie NHL player hasn't hit 80+ points since Malkin. That's not ending with MacKinnon.

I'd slot Mac in for 50-65 points, Drouin 50-70 (depending on how much time he spends with Stamkos) and Barkov (if he plays) 40-55 points.

I'll guess Drouin
He was a favourite, and he played half the year on the 4th line, then when he was put in the top 6 he ended up with something like 9 points in 7 games to end the season. He'll be older and more seasoned than the majority of high profile rookies next season; don't underestimate the benefit of having a couple dozen NHL games under your belt.

By the way, is Jarnkrok supposed to be in the NHL next season? Because he's probably a good candidate as well.

I would.

Has he even hit that mark on the Q?

lol at Droun playing with Stamkos next year

Why would TB split up the one only good line they have of Purcell - Stamkos - St. Louis?

Obviously it will happen eventually (maybe even next season) but theres a chance Drouin doesn't even crack their roster next season just based on the amount of young talent they have on the cusp of making the NHL.

I love Drouin and might have taken him before Barkov but the only time he'll get with Stamkos (if any at all) is on the PP

Anyway my top 5 in no particular order are:
1) Barkov
2) Pirri
3) Baertschi
4) Toffoli
5) Jones

Wouldn't bet against it. Being sent down to the Heat was probably the best thing that happened for him.

Even if he makes the opening night roster, he's going to have a hard time getting the necessary ice time to have a shot. Already have Bogo and Buff on the right side so someone would have to play their off side for him to get top 4 minutes. And even then, with a healthy D he'll be hard pressed to get any PP time. Could potentially be a heck of a pairing with Bogo.

I think Scheifele has a better chance than Trouba. Trouba has a harder route to getting significant minutes, and if Brodin didn't win I don't see a western Dman winning. If Scheifele plays centers Kane they could click well. On paper a skilled play making center is exactly what Kane needs.
