How many rookies do you guys think make the Isle's 2013-14 lineup out of training camp ? I'm guessing 3, Nelson, Donovan and Strome.

Donovan is more or less a lock, I would think. I think either one of Nelson or Nino start the season with the Isles, but the other could be brought up after a few months if they exceed at Bridgeport.

Nino = not a rookie, assuming we're talking about the literal sense.

Nelson Donovan and Strome is my guess (I think there's a chance Nino makes it too if he is not traded but he is not a rookie)... and I wouldn't be surprised to see Lee and other call ups by year end.. Last year we had a ton of inexperienced players (Strait, Hickey, Mcdonald, Cizikas, Ullstrom all with none or limited NHL experience) and they were upgrades over the dead weight we had the year before. I don't think that I am as worried about rookies as many others are. While we may take more strides this year, I don't think we will make serious noise until 2014-15, so I am happy if these guys get experience now if ready.

Opening night I think it's going to be Donovan and Nelson think Strome might start off in AHL for a little bit then brought up.

My thoughts exactly. I think Strome might get called up. However, I don't see Snow rushing the fact. We are already going to be getting younger by injecting Nelson and Donovan into the lineup. Nino, whom I fully believe will make the roster as well is another young addition.

However, in the same regard, I would not at all be surprised if Strome makes the team and Nino starts the season in the minors (which would make three rookies)

I wouldn't be surprised either way really.

That is kind of what I am figuring, although I hope the team brings in another dman and Donovan starts the year in the minors.

You're missing "Too Many" as an option in the poll.

I think it will be Donovan, Nelson and Nino. I think Strome will impress but they'll send him down for part of the Fall. Having more than 2 rookie Fwds (counting Nino as a rookie for these purposes) will be a bit too much, IMO.

I expect Lee and Strome to be the first call ups.

Just Nelson and Donovan.

By the way, these are two rookies who are coming up after solid AHL development and giving spots where they are comfortable. Ideal scenario.

3 - Nelson, Donovan, and Nino as regulars. Nino may not technically be a rookie, but if you think the season of total fail he experienced a year and a half ago makes him a vet, then I don't know what to say.

If Nino is traded, I expect Strome up in spot duty in the second half.

Went with 2 - Nelson and Donovan. Don't consider Nino a rookie cause of the burned ELC. Also hope Strome starts in the AHL. Get acclimated there and then come up (unless he's absolutely lighting it up there)

I really think Strome is ready, and will prove so during training camp. 4 full seasons in juniors, also I feel he is an elite talent. Not quite like Tavares, but he's closer to elite than say Nino or the Ranger's Kreider, both of whom got plenty of AHL time last year. He alone will decide where he starts the 2013-14 season. I think Nelson is our 3rd line center to start the season, IF we don't sign a top line winger to replace Boyes, I think Strome slips into that slot, and produces with JT. Nino of course can find himself on the 3rd line with Nelson and Grabner. Second line of Bailey-Nielsen-Okposo.

Donovan slips into the Streit spot.

3 (Donovan, Nelson, Strome) or 4 (if you include Nino, who isn't actually a rookie). I could see Strome being given another season in the AHL though (or at least part of one).

I doubt we could be as lucky this year with injuries as last year. I think Strome, Nino, Nelson, Lee, Donovan and Mayfield will all see some time on the Isle this year. I hope I'm wrong and don't need them all.
