Better Rookie Season: Vesey, Buchnevich, or Skjei

Felt in the mood for a fun before-season poll, to see just how good we are at predicting things as fans. People can feel free to put up others on other topics as well.

I'm interested to know which of our 3 rookies in the opening day roster is going to have the biggest positive impact This season only. Not in terms of ceiling or growth but the biggest contribution this year.

Have fun.

Went Buch mainly because he already has chemistry with Zibs and Kreids.

Vesey seems more ready for an NHL season but he has started to really click with anyone like Buch has.

Going with Vesey, I just dont buy that having played in the KHL automatically makes Buch the better player. Vesey blew his face out of the water during camp, with "worse linemates" at boot.

Buchnevich will score at least 1.5x the goals Vesey does this season.

Performed significantly better than Buch during the teams camp. In my opinion. Correlated to expectation and linesmates

If we're talking about Traverse City, then yeah you have a leg to stand on but Buch performed much better once they started playing against close to NHL/NHL competition.

It wasn't really that close either.

In my opinion, I think Vesey plays the more physically aggressive game and the chances of becoming injured is greater with Vesey than it is with Buchnevich. For this reason, I'll give my vote to Buchnevich as you can't really be productive on the IR, should that happen.

Went with Buch as i have the highest expectations for him. But Vesey might surprise us

Skjei will be more difficult to evaluate probably, as AV will be much more eager to play the anchor

Voted Vesey. Although I think Buch will end up being the better player eventually.

I think Buch will start out slow and really turn it on at the end when he gets more acclimated to the NA game, starts learning more English, etc.

Vesey just seems to be less raw IMO

also, Buch seems like a prime candidate for AVs completely merit-less disciplinary system. May stunt his development

Buch, but I think (hope) both Vesey and Buch will have strong rookie seasons.

Vesey by a hair.

Both will have very respectable rookie seasons.
