It wouldn't surprise me if Nicklas Jensen scored 30-40 points and around 15 goals. Not sure if that is breakout calibre, but I think it would be a really solid rookie performance.

I would count that as a breakout since it would surpass his career AHL numbers.

J.T Miller.

He will be slotted in to the third line spot with solid support on his flanks. I expect a 35-45 point season as he continues to develop towards taking over a top-6 role in future years

Kucherov was somewhat sheltered last year. But with TB's lack of RWs right now, he's a good candidate to wind up playing with Stamkos. If not Filppula. If either of those things happen, and Kucherov plays with confidence, he could rack up some points.

There's still a small chance TB gives him a full year in the A though to round out his game due to his waiver status.

I think Mika Zibanejad in Ottawa can have a solid year. He has all the right things going for him and just has to be more consistent. I think he's better than Silferberg, to be honest

If the Oilers give the 2nd line centre spot to Mark Arcobello, I think he will be in the 45 - 50 point range. I am not sure if he gets that spot, or if it goes to Drasaitl, but if Arco gets it, he will show that he is a solid NHL caliber talent.

If Brayden Schenn doesn't emerge this year, I don't think he ever will then.

Boone Jenner is a good pick. I also think we're going to see both Hampus Lindholm and Jonas Brodin throttle up the charts.

I think it's about time for Jeremy Morin to earn a regular NHL spot, and he's capable of making a quick impact.

Zibanejad and Galchenyuk.

Zibanejad 2 years ago was 2nd line 19 year old center for playoff team.

Last year he was on pace for 20 goals 40 points while playing his off-wing and 4th line duties.

With a potential top 6 role and a guy like Ryan on his wing, he could have a great season next year.

Hertl from criteria

Not from criteria.

Gardiner
Gagner
RNH
Eller
Kadri
Krieder ( I just sense a monster season one year from him, and by monster I don't mean 100 points)

If B. Schenn can get on Giroux's wing, I'd expect a breakout year.
