    I haven't been able to find anything on next year's crop of potential stars.

    There are the Rob Schremp mentions, maybe Petr Kalus, but outside of them I haven't heard much "buzz".

    Any suggestions, links, info, etc?

    Well obviously there is last years draftees who could have an immediate impact, Toews, Backstrom, Mueller, E. Johnson... Other youngsters that are obvious are j. Johnson.

    Letang and Kirill Kolstov could have an impact and be solid rookies next year....

    Not really topic for this thread, but could you tell me what age must be player eligible for draft ? Crosby was drafted at age 17, I thought you must be at least 18. Is the determining factor the year of a birth ?

    Well you have to be 18 by something like the upcoming month of October, or maybe September or something like that I think...

    Crosby is born in august, was drafted in June, so yes he was 17, but by the time the season started he was 18...

    cutoff date is september 15th. so a player born on september 15th 1989 or later has to wait until the 08 draft.

    And last but not least Marc Staal will make the Rangers next year and will be an impact player. Ranger scouts are probably loving every second he plays in this year OHL playoffs.

    Basically I'm trying to determine which propsects are making the transition next yr.

    I'm sure this discussion will help all of us fantasy freaks too.

    I'm not too concerned with Calder talk as much as who is getting the call.

    From Carolina don't be shocked if you see Bobby Hughes emerge from training camp as the #3 center.

    Unless Schremp has a great training camp, he probably won't have a starting stint with the Oilers, we just have too many centers. And he just tore his MCL, which grants him 3 months off.

    Gilbert, Grebeshkov and Pouliot will likely start the season with the big club.

    Eww... After watching him in the playoffs this year, I'd be shocked if he was in an NHL uni next year. He was just awful.

    What about Bobby Ryan? He should make the NHL roster.

    Unfortunately, there is no room for Stralman on the Leafs blueline next year. I would love to see "the next Lidstrom". Stralman has also said that he doesn't want to play in the AHL but would rather continue playing in Sweden until he is NHL ready. Apparently, he also just recently had a baby and would rather stay in Sweden for one more year.

    Kulemin plans on staying in Russia for one more year. Metallurg suggested that he stay one more year in Russia and make a ton of money to support his family for a long time before going to Toronto and taking on the uncertainties of an NHL contract. Metallurg told him he is free to go to Toronto after next season.
