Which prospects crack the NHL next year?

As far as I've heard, the general consensus is that Zibanejad and Silfverberg will be here next year. Do guys like Stone, Borowiecki, Noesen or Puempel have what it takes yet?

These 6 + Petersson will all spend parts of next season in Bingo and Ottawa. Wiercioch will probably get a call up at some point as well if there are a few injuries (which there will be). Prince is another possibility to get a call. I kind of hope we keep a rotating spot in the lineup as incentive for everybody.

Bishop and Silfverberg for sure. Klinkhammer sticks on LW.

Maybe Zibanejad fits in Zack Smith's spot.

Greening - Spezza - Silfverberg
Foligno - Turris - Alfredsson
Klinkhammer - Zibanejad - Michalek
Condra - O'Brien - Neil

On defense only Borowiecki makes it if we don't sign anyone. Otherwise no one graduates.

Mark Stone doesn't make it simply by virtue of being RW behind Silfverberg.

I put Stone in before Petersson. Very excited to see if this guy can transition his game into the NHL. Could be a top-6 power forward.
And before people criticize this idea of putting him on the top-line, I think we should see if he can score the way he does in Junior and to do that he'll need Spezza to start.

Also, Z-bad shouldn't be on the 3rd line. I'd rather him be the top-center in the AHL then on the 3rd line (even though that would be an energetic line).

Michalek Spezza Stone
Silfverberg Z-bad Alfie
Greening Turris Smith
Foligno O'brien Neil

* full disclosure, I don't know if Smith could play right wing. I put him in there because he's a right-handed shot.

Silfverberg and Zibanejad for sure. Also, gotta think Bishop as well.

I'd love for Da Costa to get another shot. Borowiecki too. Not sure if they will for sure make it though.

Silfverberg is LW, Stone doesn't make it cause he isn't ready and Smith > Condra and Klinkhammer

Silf can play both wing positions from what i understand. So can michalek so we have some flexibility

both Silf and Michalek shoot using opposite hands so even better

Smith has been soooo bad this second half.

But silfverberg can play both RW and LW. I just think he fits better on RW, just a gut feeling lol.

I'd like to think Da Costa will see 40+ games next season. He and Hoffman will likely be our first couple of call-ups.

Silfverberg is almost a lock at this point. Zibanejad will make it. One of Hoffman/Petersson/Filatov/Stone will make it if they have an unbelievable camp/pre-season. I also think it will impact Zibanejad going to minors if they do.

UFA-Spezza-Michalek
Silverberg-Turris-Alfredsson
Klinkhammer-Foligno/Regin-Zibanejad/Stone/Petersson/Hoffman
Greening-Smith-Neil

Yeah just saying Silf won't stop a RW from making the team

Not many junior players make the jump straight to the NHL, and skating

Smith is still better than Klink and Condra though. Better skills all around

He does but he is magic on the boards with his great puck possession and lethal shot/pass he can make.

LW is his best position but he is so versatile.

I don't think Zibanejad is anywhere close to a lock next year.

I think the favourites are Z and Silverberg. Da Costa and Noesen are strong darkhorses for me.

This is pretty much how I feel, except that Filatov is a complete wild card. He could slot in above Da Costa, or right off the list for me.

Edit: forgot about Bishop, who I imagine is a lock for the backup role, and if he isn't then I see Lehner coming in before we look outside the organization; so maybe add Bishop at 1, and bump off Stone to add Lehner somewhere around 10th.

Zibanejad and Silfverberg for sure.

I think that if Stone continues to improve on his skating over the summer then he will have a legitimate chance at cracking the roster.
