Who makes their teams/ how soon do they?

Now that we are starting to see where the players are going, what would you say their impediment/eventual futures will be, atleast in terms of when they make their team/become impact players ?

Leon will make the Oilers. Heaven forbid they let a player develop.

I feel like this is overblown. Gangner and lander I'll admit, but who else was really rushed?

Schultz played 22 minutes a night as a 22 year old and 23 minutes a night as a 23 year old.

Cam Fowler played 22 minutes a night as an 18 year old and 23 minutes per night as a 19 year old.

How was Schultz rushed? It's fine if you don't like the Oilers (that's apparent) but bashing isn't necessary.

Edit: On topic, Draisaitl does have a chance, but it's lower IMO if Sam Gagner remains an Oiler.

Highly unlikely Bennett makes the Flames this year. I'd give him 2-3 years before he hits the NHL.

I think he'll stay for the 9 game minimum but he'll go back to Junior. You don't seem to understand the Oilers very well, so I'll give you a bit of history - we almost lost the team when Pocklington was selling it. We were bought by a consortium of business owners in town to keep them here until a better owner could be found. The owners had to cut costs, which meant that for FIVE years we did not have a farm system. Since this a hockey 'future' board I'm sure you understand what that means to team so I don't need to explain further, do I? Your best players make the team, and since we had no development system, guys like Gagner did.

Now, going foward we have TWO farm teams and they are being stocked. If we need a player we can get one from there. We finally have the luxury of developing our players and again, in case you missed it just reference Darnell Nurse, who had a great training camp and preseason but was sent back to junior.

So there you go - nice to have some background info before you bash someone.

Ekblad for sure. Top 4 role likely, top 6 almost for sure.

Reinhart, 90%. Top 6 unlikely but possible (if he has a great camp), bottom 6 not unlikely so he might stick. A 9 game call-up and a year in the minors would be best for him though.

Draisaitl. Ideally a year in the minors, but if they find a taker for Gagner they will push him into the 2C role. Make or break, I think he will be fine, but who knows.

Bennettt. A year or two in minors, could make it out of camp like Monahan, but less likely.

After, for the next 10-15 picks, that I see most having 1-2 at least years in minors before the will have impact.

I know they were saying Ekblad would be up next season during the broadcast, just wondering everyone's thoughts in him. I'm limited in what I've learned and have seen, eager to learn more about him.

Thanks.

Sanheim is probably 1-2 years out from making the team. And he certainly will have plenty of competition with Morin, Ghost, Hagg and Alt.

IMO the top-4 is of a high caliber and all stand a chance at the NHL next season.

Ekblad is basically 100% sure and as for the others it depends on trades/injuries/training camp.

As for the others I doubt it. Dal Colle will play at least one AHL season, as will Virtanen. Fleury isn't good enough right now to play in NHL.

Nylander I could see signing with the Leafs right away and playing in the AHL like Lindholm.

Ehlers and Ritchie will need at least one more year of juniors, we'll see after that.

Here are mine:

Ekblad is a shoe-in for the Panthers. No brainer.
Reinhart will be a number 2 centre with the Sabres. Also a no-brainer.
Draisaitl will at least get nine games. If he has a good start he stays. But I see him needing one more year in the WHL.
Bennett I see getting nine games, stays if he's good.
Nylander gets nine games at most, otherwise stays in Sweden.
Ehlers gets nine games and heads back to Halifax. He looks NHL ready, but not 100%.
Ritchie gets nine games. Needs experience to get better.
Honka gets nine games.

I'll say Scherbak is my dark-horse to get nine games or make it.

Thats who from the first round I see making it.

Bennett would really need to have a great camp to stick.

The Flames have 3 decent centres in place now - Monahan, Backlund and Stajan - and a host of guys who could play 4C. Bennett has more potential than any of them, but I don't see him being better than any of them this year.

If Leon has an amazing camp AND 9 game audition I have no worries about giving him some 4th line time to find his feet. If not back to jnr after. 9 games

Sherbak will be kept in MTL.

I just have a gut feeling that he will impress.

Unless Fleury looks like a top 2 dman in camp, he should definitely go back to Red Deer.

I don't doubt that he'll impress, and I love the pick for them, but he's seen as one of the more raw guys in the first round. He should take some time.
