After seeing how the NHL draft went, what is everyones prediction who will win the Calder next season. And also who the finalists will be. I know some players that have played in the AHL may end up having great rookie seasons and get a nomination too but I think some players that were just drafted were drafted to great situations.
I love Barkovs situation in Florida and he is my choice
runner ups - Nathan Mackinnon (COL)
Ryan Strome (NYI) *have a strange feeling he will have a strong season
I'd go with Baertschi as well. Going to be 21, should get lots of opportunities in scoring role this time. Give him some actual time on the first unit PP and hopefully a longer leash now that the Flames know they aren't likely to win it anytime soon.
Of course if Hartley treats him the same way he did last year, he'd be stupid not to demand a trade by November.
If Drouin is setting up Stamkos, he's going to put up tons of points. He's my guess. Baertschi and Barkov are 2 and 3 in some order. I don't think MacKinnon is in the conversation, because I think he's going to be brought in slowly on the 3rd line. He won't play the minutes the others do.
