    Julien has confirmed J2K for Montreal, and I assume Dahlin, Svech and Tkachuk made their teams. Any others?

    Bouchard for the Oilers most likely.

    Not only has Kotkaniemi shown he was NHL ready, but he was actually the Habs best player throughout the preseason (not that we have a great team to begin with).

    I would prefer he plays 9 games then go back to Finland, but he might definitely stick around longer. He is legit.

    Bouchard with the Oilers, looks to be NHL ready so far. Elite offensively but a lil sus defensively although he can work on that as the season progresses.

    Wings fan may need to chime in but I don’t think Zadina is making opening night.

    No official announcement of it but he was on the plane to Europe and management/coaching staff are very impressed with him.

    I wonder, how was Hughes?

    Did he even play or did he go not come ?

    unlikely we will see a prospect out of draft make the Red Wings opening night roster anytime soon. That team never rushes prospects and they like it when they are more then ready to play in the NHL.

    I didn't get the news, thats why I was asking. It's tough to follow training camps.

    They don't have to be, just have to be lucky.

    This appears to have worked out swimmingly for Pettersson. I was advocating for Montreal to follow the Pettersson model with Jesperi, but this has gone much better than I expected it to.

    Pettersson was an interesting case as he was an absolute toothpick last year. I think he was NHL ready at 18 in regards to everything but his Keira Knightly-esq 160lb on 6'2 frame. As much as J2K needs to bulk up, he can at least play in the league without snapping in half.

    Zadina was definitely not ready and has quite a bit of work to do, but I'd argue that Veleno should have probably gotten a shot, the kid looked very impressive.
