    Defensive defenseman without much offensive upside, good skater, great hitter, needs to get more confidence with the puck, tends to give the puck away and needs to learn how to make the first pass on a consistent basis, willing to drop the gloves and get dirty for his team

    He could end up anywhere in the bottom 4, but most likely he'll end up a third pairing defenseman with solid penalty killing ability. His absolute upside is probably Adam Foote, he might end up similar to Aaron Miller though.

    Great stickhandler, good shot with a quick release, great speed, lacks a dependable defensive game, tends to be lazy and doesn't always give a full effort, but plays with a ton of energy when he does, not afraid to mix it up and throw hits but his frame doesn't allow him to take them that well, needs to bulk up if he ever wants to make it

    Could end up a second liner, but he probably won't ever make it to the NHL on a consistent basis unless one of his coaches straightens him out. Could end up a poor-man's Kovalev, playing on the third line and powerplay, but I think his window of opportunity is slowly closing.

    Fleishmann saw a bunch of time in the nhl with the caps last year. I wouldn't be suprised to see him a bunch more next year. Maybe even full time depending on the off season acqiositions.

    Mikhail Grabovski- will get a look at camp, should see more games with the Habs next year, although it's impossible to say if he can make the team full time. Imo he will go back and forth next year as he needs to work on his face-offs, learn to use his teammates more and keep his head up.

    His potential I'd say is a 2nd line C, he's very fast with some slick moves. Passes the puck really well and has been good in the SO this year in Hamilton. His shot isn't powerfull but he knows where to put it and he creates offense when he's on the ice. Works hard at both ends of the rink most of the time, often named one of the Hardest Working players in the game for Hamilton. Has gotten leveled though many times, as he adjusts to the north south kind of game, getting caught with his head down. He needs to get stronger too imo. I do think he will be a full time NHL within 2 years.

    Bergenheim should be in the NHL, wasnt given a good enough chance with Islanders coaching staff who preferred the vets over the young guys this year.

    Joe Ryan- like someone already mentioned, the next Aaron Miller

    Grabovsky- a very quick, flashy, hardworking second liner. He is playing center now but i think he willp have more success on the wing

    Lukas Kaspar- wont be anything more than a role player, third liner at best. Limited offensiver potential but plays very good on the penalty kill and in his own end, very relaible.

    Letang- top pairing defenceman in a few years, will be in the big show next year and making an impact. A great steal for Pittsburgh in the third round.

    Voloshenko- will be a bust. Never will transform into a big player in the NHL, headed back to Russia soon, i can almost gurantee

    I too would like to know more about: Keith Seabrook, Michael Frolik, Marek Zagrapan, Kris Chucko, and Vladmir Zharkon. I want to hear more about there seasons this year.

    I think there's 2 options for Hensick next season:
    1) The Avs will move him to a wing on a scoring line.
    2) He will be our first line Centre in Cleveland, and will be the first call-up in case of injury.

    If Fleischmann could play with more consistency at the NHL level, he'd have a great chance at locking up a roster spot with the Caps next year (depending on their other offseason moves, of course, including the possibility that he himself is dealt elsewhere). He had a four point game against Tampa Bay late in the season and seemed to be much more comfortable and confident with the big team during his last stretch with the Caps.

    Seabrook is at least two to three years away from making the jump. He just completed his first year at Denver and seemed to have a decent year but he'll probably stay at DU for a couple more years.

    3) I'm pretty sure CGY has a lot of guys to sign this offseason and I'm guessing a couple will be gone. My guess would be that Boyd is definitly next in line and should be up next season. I think Ryder would be the next up after Boyd, as soon as next year.

    Well actually the reason for him playing in Europe this year was the Islanders trying to lowball him in negotiations.

    He has said many times, to the media and fansites that his goal is to get back to NHL.
