    Which prospects that have got to see a handful of NHL games so far (say 10-30 or so) are ready to step into their respective teams roster full time this season? And of those, which will have show that their limited action has helped them prepare for the vigors of a full NHL season?

    For L.A. Petr Kanko and Richard Petiot could spend the whole year on the Kings.

    Dustin Penner for sure, possibly on the first line.

    Wojtek Wolski will be on the team no doubt. He will probably be playing on the top two lines.

    Pouliot will make the team out of camp for sure for the Oilers.

    Hmm, as an Oiler fan I'd disagree with that. He has a good chance at making the squad, but far from a 'for sure'.

    No, I am comfortable with 'for sure'. He'll start on the fourth line.

    Agreed. I have managed to pick him up in every one of my FHL leagues so far... love his game.

    Are you sure he didn't mean the crappy Mike Green that the Rangers traded the Kings?

    Look for Jiri Hudler and Tomas Kopecky to get some good minutes this year for the Wings.

    There's also a fair chance Valtteri Filpulla could step up as well.

    Depending on the goalie situation, you could see either Jimmy Howard and/or Stefan Liv as well.

    detroit could see guys like hudler and kopecky make it...

    hopefuls like howard and filppula are still around, i almost wouldnt mind seeing kopecky and hudler emerge this year, next year bring in grigorenko and filppula to emerge along with quincey and howard for sure... then 2y ears from now see if a guy like mcgrath can step in..along with maybe kindl

    Yan Stastny and Mark Stuart should be up most of the year for the Bruins.

    Andrei Kostitsyn could have a shot on the 2nd line with Samsonov and Ribeiro or Kovalev . he is definitively ready IMO
