    Stralman may surprise some people if Toronto can clear a spot for him on defence.

    All are going to be great players. Hard to pick. Johnsons are going to be very good. Toews is a stud already. Mueller is going to be very solid. And Staal will be a rock. Can't wait til the season starts.

    Brouwer could be a dark horse this year if he makes the team from camp. Kane will get a 10 game tryout at the start of the the year so he could be good if he proves enough in those 10 games to stick with the Hawks.

    not nearly as sexy a name but dont be surprised if in his 1st full season ryan callahan puts up 20 to 25 goals and 20 to 25 assists......

    hes only 21 and will still be considered a rookie this year...

    Well i guess that E Johnson should be the best of the bunch, but Marc Staal will help his team so bad...

    Hanzel is likely a 80/20 for teh NHL this season. AHL for sure and maybe mid season callup if it doesn;t make the team from camp.

    Not if Carey Price wins a spot early in the year.

    But yeah, I would say

    Backstrom
    Toews
    E. Johnson
    Carey Price

    Must be the 4 favorites.

    Sorry but Habs defense wont win Carey the Calder unless he is just as cool in the NHL as he was in his playoff form in the AHL.

    Actually I think the Habs defense not being great could work in Price's favour. If he plays as well as many think he will have ample opportunity to show that he deserves to be at least a finalist for the Calder.
