Minnesota Wild

Mikael Granlund. 1st/2nd line center capable of 70-80pts/year.

HM to Jonas Brodin. He could develop into a legit 1st pairing D-man. His game reminds me of Lidström, not saying he's the next big thing but he has potential to be a very solid D-man.

I hate doing real projections, therefore he is a top pairing dman.

St. Louis Blues:

Vladimir Tarasenko

1st line, potentially elite, RW. Could get anywhere from 60-90 pts in his prime depending on how he develops but will also add physicality, energy and two-way play. 90 is top end up I'd say 70 pts is a safe projection for him.

Granlund: anywhere between 60-90 pts but with a legit sniper the sky is the limit.

HM:
Brodin: number 1 defenseman who does it all and then some.

Probably Kyle Palmieri. I can see him as a 20G 50 point guy.

HM: John Gibson. He's the OHL's top goalie and a reasonable expectation is that at worst he'll be a good back up for Hiller. His upside is being a strong starter.

Jonas Brodin - Realistic? Top 3 defenseman that can put up around 40 points (has a wicked outlet pass and starts rushes). If he hits his potential? Top 10 Defenseman in the NHL, 60 points and considered to be one of the best Swedish defensemen of his generation.

Since Galchenyuk was already mentioned, I will go with Nathan Beaulieu.

Realistic Projection: #3-5# PPQB
Potential: #2 (1B behind Subban)

Many of these projections seem ultra-conservitave, considering we're speculating on their potential.

Granlund: 30 goals 70 assists for 100 pts.

Jankowski will be so good he needs to be the only forward on the ice, forcing Sven to play defense

For the Canucks:

Nicklas Jensen, max potential would be 40-30-70 1st line Winger.

Realistically though, he'll be a 30-25-55 type of guy who could slot in anywhere in the top 9, could end up better.

You neglected an important part: realistic potential.

The OP even states outright he's not asking about top potential, unless you are absolutely sure they can hit it.

Nyquist honestly might be passing Smith for me. Realistically his potential is hard to gauge considering he's just starting to blow out this season.

I'd be foolish to say 70-80 points a year is likely, but he is hanging tough in the points race with the likes of Eberle, so I think it's possible.

55-70 points/season is the safe bet range, but I think if he continues to develop well he really could be a big time player.

AHL just started; Nyquist is trying to prove he belongs in NHL and deserves top6 minutes.

Eberle is NHL star that has signed contract for 6 mil per.

So to me is no wonder Eberle is not motivated as Nyquist at AHL.

Tomas Hertl.

Realistic? Solid 50 point big two-way playmaking #2C. I think around 60-65 points is his ceiling. I'm high on him because he looks amazing playing in the Czech Extraliga, but of course that is the Czech Extraliga.

Brock Nelson: Prototypical big second line center capable of putting up 60 points, playing the power play and killing penaties.

OP said REALISTIC POTENTIAL most of you guys exaggerate a lot

for the Habs

Galchenyuk 50g 100a : 150pts on a down year.
on a good year 92g 121a : 213 pts
should win multiple art ross and hart, at the end of his career he challenge and surpass most of Gretzky record.

Jack Campbell
- Boom or bust for this guy. Gonna have to be a top 10 goaltender if he'll make an impact here, or else we'll just roll with Kari and find someone else. I think he can do it, but he could just as easily bust as well.

Jamie Oleksiak
- #3/4 defenseman, very solid in his own zone with some decent offense to go along. Might be able to play a #2 role with Goligoski or Larsen, but not expecting it.

Radek Faksa
- #2 center, great two-way play and a very cerebral player. 25-35-60 seems like a fair stat line, maybe a bit lower. Great compliment to Benn down the middle.

Fair enough. I guess the term "realistic potential" seems misleading, or poorly phrased. But I digress.

Granlund's probable projection: 65 - 80 points per year.
