Question about NCAA prospects

Which Kings' NCAA prospect is most likely to get an offer to leave school after the lockout ends? Tambellini, Boyle, Zaba?

Boyle - zero chances
Tambellini - I wouldn't be surprised
Zaba - he'll get the starting job next season, so he won't leave school
Guerin - zero chances
Parse - zero chances

I think it really depends on the following:

1. What cap implications will there be regarding bonuses?

In Tambellini's case for example, I would expect him to be looking for close to the rookie max salary and signing bonus. We've seen speculation of a Rookie max salary number in the $800-k area. I'd suspect the rookie Signing, Reporting and Roster bonus cap to be close to what it was in the old CBA (50% of salary max per league year).

2. How much of a youth movement are the Kings prepared to roll with when the season begins?

Cammalleri, Brown, and Gleason all project into L.A. for next season. I think it's fair to assume that TK will exercise his option and sign in L.A.

Next we have Clarke. At 26 and with 2 solid seasons in Manchester under his belt, Noah's time in the NHL is now. At a minimum I expect him to stick in L.A. as the next Brad Chartrand (utility player) for the upcoming season..

Obviously the injury to Lehoux creates questions but I suspect that he'll bounce back fine and stick in L.A.

Barney is a huge question mark. Will he be signed? I think so. The Kings have gone this far with him and I don't see any reason for them to just give-up now. At a minimum, I think they'll sign him and try to send him to Manchester (waivers might apply to him now?)

So, assuming that the NHL rosters stay at 23-men and that the Kings stick with 2-goalies, 7-d-men that leaves 14-forwards with a minimum of 3 and as many as 5 coming from this years Manchester team.
