    1. Nathan MacKinnon (C) Colorado Avalanche
    2. Aleksander Barkov, Jr. (C) Florida Panthers
    3. Jonathan Drouin (LW) Tampa Bay Lightning
    4. Seth Jones (D) Nashville Predators
    5. Elias Lindholm (C) Carolina Hurricanes
    6. Sean Monahan (C) Calgary Flames
    7. Darnell Nurse (D) Edmonton Oilers
    8. Rasmus Ristolainen (D) Buffalo Sabres
    9. Bo Horvat (C) Vancouver Canucks
    10. Valeri Nichushkin (LW) Dallas Stars

    So, the bolded ones have already started the season in NHL, and most likely will also stay up for the season (?). 7/10 is pretty impressive, have any recent previous drafts had so many make the jump straight away?
     
  2. I think the 2009, 2010, and 2011 drafts come pretty close. Some made the jump right away and stayed up, others were sent back down.

    In 2008 eight of the top ten started in the NHL (Stamkos, Doughty, Bogosian, Pietrangelo, L. Schenn, Filatov, Boedker and Bailey). Pietrangelo and Filatov were sent down after 8 games, the rest stayed the whole year.

    No he did not. He made the jump as a 19-year-old in 2009.

    3-4 of those could easily be sent down after a few games.

    I expect Lindholm to go back down.

    Jones is getting big minutes, but I truly think he'll be sent back down.

    Can't see Monahan, Mac or Barkov going back down though.

    Not at all IMO. A couple minor mistakes, but other than that he looks like an NHLer now. Making good decisions, not shying away from contact, jumping into the play, great passes, very nice shot.

    He wont be going back down. I would bet a good bottle of single malt on that.

    i have to agree with optimus that he wasn't very good. a lot of small mistakes. not good enough to stay in the Buffali whole season IMO. Sabres have few better players at this point who can crab Risto's spot. Ruhwedel, McBain and McNabb for example.

    Just IMO, but none of those guys are playing better than Risto currently, and they all have lower overall potential.

    Judging by camps/preseason, the three who didn't make the jump this season definitely could next season too.

    I don't think he looked like garbage but he didn't look like an NHLer now either. Buffalo may keep him because they don't want him to go back to Finland, but he doesn't look at all ready to me.

    I think he's looked better than I expected for an 18 year old in his first 2 games in North America. He has really good instincts, good mobility, and he gets his shot through and on net. I want to see what he looks like after 20 games, but I predict he will look great before Christmas.

    i believe that he would go to Rochester rather than Finland. He could IMO really use one year in AHL to get familiar with NA hockey. i see no point rushing him from Buffalo's perspective.

    I think MacKinnon, Monahan, Jones and possibly Barkov and Nickhushin will stay with their NHL teams this season, the rest probably get sent down.

    If Skinner-Nash-Dvorak keeps playing like they did in game 1 I can see the Canes "loaning" Lindholm back to Brynas to save a year on his ELC.

    It is very impressive and somewhat expected with the top end talent in the draft and the one year lowering of the salary cap as well, which has put a squeeze on the free agent market.

    The likely hood that Jones is sent down is zero. Last game he got more minutes than Shea Weber. He has been the most consistent Predator this season, imho. Plus, who would replace him?

    Thats part of why I think he'll be sent down.

    They are testing him in that position, but I still think he'll be sent down purely for development purposes.

    Part of why he'll be sent down... Is because he's been great, played big minutes, and been the Preds' most consistent player? Run that by me again because it makes no sense.
