    What are your opinions about how good these three players will/could be in the NHL and how is their development going?

    Faulk is the only one I follow all that closely, here's what I can tell you:

    His size, despite being under 6'0, is a non-issue. He more then holds his own physically in his own end and plays with a nasty streak to his game from time to time. Offensively his shot is heavy and accurate from the point but he doesn't entirely rely of that for his offense. Good passing, especially on the PP and out of his zone, and he's adept at leading the rush on the PP. He's ahead of schedule developmentally, especially compared to where they were talking about him being in his own zone.

    There's a good chance he goes right from the Frozen Four to the Canes farm team in Charlotte in time for the AHL playoffs, so we'll get an early chance to see how his game translates to the pro level if he does.
